Sony VPL-HW15 Projector – Image Quality-6

Here are a couple additional side-by-side dark scenes from The Dark Knight: The first has the Epson Home Cinema 6500UB on the left, Sony VPL-HW15 on the right, the second, has the Mitsubishi HC3800 on the right:

The next set of comparison images, continues with the same scene with Clint Eastwood from Space Cowboys. This is a very dark scene with Clint Eastwood, on Blu-ray disc. The photos are intentionally way overexposed.

Look for the blacks in the shades, and the details in those shades in the form of the white trim. (At this level of overexposure, don’t even worry about the skin tones, as in these type of photos they always look terrible, and way oversaturated/too high contrast).

First image is the VPL-HW15, followed by: Sharp XV-Z15000, Optoma HD8200, Sanyo PLV-Z3000, the older Sony VPL-HW10, and the Panasonic PT-AE3000U.

The VPL-HW15 does extremely well in shadow detail on our Clint Eastwood dark scene from Space Cowboys:
