Mitsubishi HC5500 Projector: Overall Image Quality

As stated previously, the out of the box color isn’t bad, but treat yourself to a calibration disc, like the AVIA, or the DVE-HD calibration disc (Blu-ray), which we recently reviewed. All the images shown below, were after calibration. The HC5500 you will note, does a really good job on the colors of the U.S. flag. (BTW, the flag, and several other images below (including the picture with balloons), and also the “riot of flowers – the last picture on the Summary page, are from the DVE-HD disc).

he projector really is well balanced, with no particular weaknesses. Skin tones are very good, black levels average for today’s 1080p projectors (which isn’t a bad thing), and sharpness is exceptional. Add to that, more brightness in best mode than many other 3LCD projectors, and you have a very good, affordable 1080p projector.
