"Phenomenal Picture"4.5 starson by talley301
Pros: Perfect Picture, Easy Setup
Cons: I had hoped for HDMI 1.3
Summary: I had held on to my CRT projector because the skin tones on digital projectors had always seemed pasty to me. With the arrival of HDMI high definition DVDs, I decided it was finally time to upgrade.
Before my purchase, I narrowed my choice to the JVC DLA100, the Mitsubishi HC6000, and the VW60. I rejected the JVC because of price, and the Mitsubishi because I thought brown skin tones were decidedly green in the unit I viewed.
I found the VW60 easy to set up. Zooming and centering took about two minutes. Holding the focus button let me move close to the correct focus. Single clicks move the focus in tiny increments. I set the focus half way between the two points where I could actually perceive any difference. The lens focus was so good that when I looked with a magnifying glass, I could clearly distinguish pixel edges and could see what looked like a tiny wire in each pixel.
Contrary to my fears, the skin tones seem clear and natural. The picture truly is almost 3 dimensional. I haven't tried the detailed color setup, but I did move the color range slightly toward the red.
The VW60 is clearly a great projector and a step forward from the VW50. I would gladly recommend it to any one!
