Projector Reviews


InFocus is very good at producing sharp images. We have enthusiastically praised InFocus in some of our 1080p projector reviews. I’m pleased to report that the X9 also happens to have a very sharp image, when compared to other 720p projector competition.

Our first image is a closely cropped image of the DTS test disc opening menu. What you see in the thumbnail is only about 20% of the area of the full image. The larger versions when you click on them are even further cropped. As you can see, the Panasonic is not exceptional in this area.

InFocus X9: Bottom Line Sharpness

It is possible that one of the other sharper 720p projectors can eek out a win over the X9 for sharpness, but, the sharpest of them, including the X9, are very close to each other. On the other hand, the X9 does provide a visibly sharper, crisper image than the most popular of the 720p projectors, the Panasonic PT-AX200U.

The real improvement in sharpness will come from choosing a 1080p projector, instead of 720p projector. Even the softest looking of the 1080p projectors should prove to have a visibly sharper and crisper appearing image than any of the 720p models
