Sony HS51 review. Many of you have asked for comments on screendoor effect and vertical banding, which I had not touched on. The reason that I didn't was because neither one was a problem, so they weren't on the radar screen of problems to discuss. There was no evidence of any vertical banding on the HS51, and pixelation was entirely invisible at 1.4 times the screen width or more. But I should have said so explicitly. Thus the review has been updated to include these observations. Also, as one astute reader pointed out, I misstated the range of lens shift in the initial posting. So that paragraph has been reworded more accurately. (Thanks,...">Sony HS51 review. Many of you have asked for comments on screendoor effect and vertical banding, which I had not touched on.

Invisible Pixelation-Should Have Said It

Thanks for all of the email feedback on the Sony HS51 review. Many of you have asked for comments on screendoor effect and vertical banding, which I had not touched on. The reason that I didn't was because neither one was a problem, so they weren't on the radar screen of problems to discuss. There was no evidence of any vertical banding on the HS51, and pixelation was entirely invisible at 1.4 times the screen width or more. But I should have said so explicitly.

As far as further comparison between the Sony HS51 and the Panasonic AE700 is concerned, we are working on two other projectors that feature the same 1280x720 LCD panels as these two units, which are the InFocus Screenplay 5000, the Hitachi PJTX100. My intent is to post overall comparative assessments of all of these units after we've had a chance to go through them all. It will be more efficient to address all of them at once.

I appreciate your kind feedback and thoughtful suggestions. It certainly helps to know what is on everyone's mind. So keep those emails coming at comments@projectorcentral.com. I can't answer them all personally, but I certainly read them all, and your continued feedback is extremely valuable to us.
