Bottom line: Reasonable sharpness, but rather typical. Several of the best 720p projectors are quite visibly sharper. also not sharp is one of my favorites, the Panasonic PT-AX200U, which uses smooth screen technology, which softens its image, in exchange for invisible pixels, and tends to be more similar, in sharpness, to the HD71, than some of the sharper projectors.
