Sony VPL-VW40: 1080p Home Theater Projector Review – Image Quality-7

Now for a more balanced scene (where dynamic irises are not very effective). The left thumbnail (when clicked on) shows a cropped area. This scene has extremely bright areas, and dark.

Look at these overexposed images to details of the satellite on the left side. On the first row, the left image is the Sony VW40, and the right one, the Epson Home Cinema 1080UB. On the second row, the left thumbnail is the Sony VW60, the right one, the JVC RS1 and the one on the third row, is the RS2. Note, the shadow detail of all are good, but when you get to the RS2, you also note that the blacks are blacker despite the image being more “overexposed” than most of the others:

Unfortunately, as usual, the exposures of the four, above, vary, so you’ll just have to work a little harder to draw conclusions.
