Sony VPL-HW10 – Image Quality4

When comparing, look at the detail in the roof (tiles), and also in the assorted trees and plants. The small images below (all are the same) show a slightly overexposed scene. Click on the images and the larger versions from the different projectors are far more overexposed, to allow a closer inspection of shadow details.

Below is a heavily overexposed scene from Lord of the Rings. The overexposure lets you see all the details in the shed on the right, the structure on the left, and the plants and ground along the lower right. The VPL-HW10 performs very nicely. Not only does the Sony do a good job, but the darker areas are rather vibrant.

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 Sony VPL-HW10, the second is the Mitsubishi HC7000, third is the Panasonic ,and the last one is from the slightly more expensive InFocus IN83:
