Optoma HD803 home theater projector: Sharpness

This Optoma, like the others, offers a sharper than average image among the current crop of 1080p projectors. You can see here, that the Optoma and the Sony VW40 look pretty much the same, and the Epson Home Cinema 1080 UB, comes across looking just a little softer. Certainly no complaints here, in terms of the HD803's sharpness performance.

The sharpness in her eyes, and in the lose strands of her hair:

Click on the left thumbnail for a large version, and on the right for one from the Epson Home Cinema 1080UB. Again, you can see a very slight advantage in sharpness on the Optoma.

Bottom line: The HD803, comes across one of the sharpest of the low cost 1080p projectors (along with it's HD80 and HD8000 siblings).
