The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD shows qualities of a source much older than it is, with poor black levels, relatively heavy grain and noise, dated-looking colors, and noticeable source element artifacts. While black levels can be fairly deep at times, night scenes can look washed-out with poor definition in the shadows. Colors have a desaturated appearance and fleshtones look pallid. Resolution is fairly sharp, but there are times when the image can have a digitized appearance. Edge enhancement is not much of a problem. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #124 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review for its informative articles and DVD and equipment reviews. Most of my DVD purchases come about after reading your reviews. I was also in the market for an intern projector (cheap) until the DLP projector matured and I could afford the more expensive Runco DLP projector. I went through all of my back issues; I have been a subscriber from your very first premier issue, and came across your article on the Sony VPL-HS10 Video Projector. I was so impressed with this article that I called around town to see who carries them and who had one hooked up, so I could review it. I was so impressed with the image quality for a projector in this price range that I ended up purchasing one, even though I was not in the market for an LCD projector. In fact, I have stopped subscribing to other home theatre magazines because I find your magazine to be more informative and straight-to-the-point. Thanks for your informative articles, and keep up the good work.
