In our dark train scene, the H5080 performs extremely well. Look to the shrubs and trees on the right, especially those on the other side of the rails.
First, of course, is the Vivitek H5080, followed by the "related" Optoma HD8600. Note, please how similar the two images are in look and feel.
Next comes the Epson Home Cinema 8500UB, followed by the Mitsubishi HC7000 and the Panasonic PT-AE4000.
Bottom line: The H5080 combines very good dark shadow detail combines with pretty good (but not exceptional) black levels at its price point.
