Sony VPL-HS51 Cineza LCD Video Projector Highs and Lows

Highs and Lows

In the quality of its blacks and shadow detail, the Cineza is a revolutionary improvement over past LCD displays. Bright, sharp image with good subjective color, no rainbow artifacts, and a super-quiet cooling fan. Impressive overall performance on both SDTV and HDTV.

In some situations the LCD screen door effect will be visible to some viewers. Gray scale tracking (consistency of color across the brightness range) and color saturation is not up to that offered in some competing products. Image can sometimes appear just a bit too crisp; more downward range on sharpness control would be a plus.
