Mitsubishi HC5500 1080p Home Projector Review: Image Quality 5

Shadow Detail Performance 3

Note in particular the HC4900 vs. the HC5500, even though the HC4900 isn’t as bright a image, its blacks are far lighter, and the the image looks washed out by comparison.

Below we have six “thumbnails” of this cropped HD scene from Space Cowboys. Click on each for an overexposed version. Look to the satellite on the left for dark shadow details. By row, starting top left:


Epson - and Pro - Home Cinema 1080 UB
Sony VPL-VW60
Panasonic PT-AE2000U

In the re-entry scene from Space cowboys, here’s the HC5500 on the left, compared to the the Epson on the right. Again, the thumbnail images are the same, and more normally exposed, while the larger images when you click on the thumbnails, are seriously overexposed to reveal the detail in the right side of the planet earth.
