Mitsubishi HC3800 Sharpness

Posted on September 1, 2009 by Art Feierman

he HC3800 projector is definitely one of the sharper ones out there. In viewing side by side with the lower cost Optoma HD20, the HC3800 was slightly sharper. I would say that it is sharper than most of the 3LCD competition as well, including some of the more expensive ones like the Panasonic and the Epson projectors. In a side by side, the BenQ W6000, has a very slight edge, but it is exceptionally sharp in its own right, as BenQ's have tended to be.

Close up of a computer monitor, from Space Cowboys (Blu-ray), left to right: HC3800, Optoma HD20, BenQ W6000, and Sharp XV-Z15000. I haven't seen any projector do better than the BenQ when it comes to trying to read the type on the on screen menus in this scene, but the Mitsubishi HC3800 is so close as to not matter. By comparison, the Optoma HD20 is visibly soft compared to the other two, and the more expensive Sharp XV-Z15000 (which we commented on it's lens softness, is somewhere in between.
