Our last comparison uses the night train scene from Casino Royale. Look to the trees and shrubs on the right, especially just above the tracks. The first image is the Planar, while the second one is from the less expensive InFocus IN83. Note, the PD8150 image appears a little blurred, put that down to user error when I took the photo:

As you can see, both do extremely well, with almost identical performance. You can see a little more detail in the Planar photo, but you’ll also notice it’s a little brighter. Basically it’s pretty much a tie, between these two excellent projectors.
