Again, from Space Cowboys, this is a cropped image. The right side is very bright (so dynamic irises will not be effective). The XV-Z15000 (top left) has good shadow detail in the dark areas of the satellite, note though, that those areas look darker than on some others. Next to it on the first row, is the Epson Home Cinema 6500UB, Those images are followed by the Sony VPL-HW10 and the PT-AE3000U (second row). The third row is the Mitsubishi HC6500 (left), and the Sanyo PLV-Z3000 on the right.
