I have owned Infocus X1 for about 5 months now and I absolutely love it. Lately, I am helping my friend putting together a home theater from scratch. I looked at X1 and was surprised that the price had actually gone up. When I saw PG-A10X at Costco, I told my friend to grab it and compare it with my X1. Now, I have both machines at my place and both set up so I can make a A/B test. The fact that the Sharp projector was made in Japen made him very happy. Besides, its resolution is XGA. However, it does not have a deinterlacer like X1, meaning my friend would have to get a progressive scan DVD player to enjoy the best picture possible. After calibrating both projectors with THX optimizer and Sound and Vision Tune up DVD, I set my Nikon digital camera on a tripod and took some pictures. I have my X1 at warmest and video, PG-A10X at 8500K, cinema, and ECO mode First, Blade 2, On PG-A10X on X1 Then, LOTR On PG-A10X on X1 Lastly, Shrek On PG-A10X on X1 My first impression was Wow!!! The sharp projector sure is bright and colorful. Due to higher resolution, the pixels are smaller for PG-A10X. However, the contrast is not as good as X1. Of course, the pictures I took are far from what they actually look like. From the pictures I took, Sharp PG-A10X is too yellow in Blade 2 and the contrast suffers in Lord of the Rings and is again too blue in Shrek, when compared with my X1. But in reality, though PG-A10X's contrast is not as good as X1's, it does not make me feel that it is flawed, just a little bit lacking. But then, I started thinking what would happen if the camera is set up differently. So I set up my camera in fireworks mode. First, Blade 2, On PG-A10X on X1 Then, LOTR On PG-A10X on X1 Lastly, Shrek On PG-A10X on X1 Here, the pictires show that X1 is way too dark and the contrast on PG-A10X is greatly improved. But, again, the pictures are far from what they actually look. Then again, without the proper equipment, there is almost no way for me to calbrate my projector to the extent that I am confident about my settings under progressive mode. I guess the choices come down to your preference in contrast, brightness, and color. For me, I would still choose X1. My friend is equally happy with his Sharp projector.
