Mitsubishi HD1000U Projector Review – General Performance-5


I should note that the grayscale color temperature in every setting was extremely consistant, from dark grays to almost white. Like most projectors, pure white tends to shift the color temperature a bit, usually cooler (more bluish).

The settings we plugged in to get those numbers are

Brightness R=8G=-2


Image Noise

Nothing to write home about. Image noise was minor and typical for DLP projectors, walk up closer to the screen and it’s easily visible, but at normal seating distances, it should rarely be of notice, even on large stationary and color consistant areas (like a blue sky around dusk).
