JVC DLA-RS2 home theater projector: Sharpness

December 25, 2007

The JVC still offers up only average sharpness for a 1080p projector.

Sanyo PLV-Z2000
Optoma HD8000,
Mitsubishi HC6000

Overall, I found the JVC is a tad sharper than the Sony, which in turn, has a slight advantage over the Panasonic, but not as crisp as the Optoma HD8000. The Sanyo PLV-Z2000 and Mitsubishi definitely appear to be sharper, not exhibiting the softness found in the others. Mind you while some projectors look a tad sharper, those that do, still don't reveal any more detail, which leads to my assumption that it is in part due to the more obvious pixel structure of the LCD projectors (Panasonic excepted, because of its Smooth Screen technology), and then the DLPs which also have a more defined pixel structure than the LCoS based JVC and Sony. I should note, however, that the JVC image was taken differently than the others, which is impacting what you see. Normally I move the camera in closer, for such a heavy crop, but didn't this time. As a result the others started with a much higher resolution image.
