IM­AGE QUAL­ITY & PER­FOR­MANCE - CANON LV-WX320

HWM (Malaysia) - - TEST -

In our tests, the LV-WX320 pro­duced a bright im­age with nat­u­ral col­ors, tes­ta­ment of the progress DLP tech­nol­ogy has made in re­cent years. We also noted good vi­brancy and con­trast, thanks to the 6-seg­ment color wheel. Truth be told, how­ever, de­spite its 3,200-lu­men rat­ing, we didn't find the LV-WX320 as bright as the 3LCD-based Epson EB-W31. Color sep­a­ra­tion ar­ti­facts (a.k.a. ‘rain­bows ef­fect') were few and far be­tween.

We had no dif­fi­cul­ties with text sharp­ness too, even at non­na­tive res­o­lu­tions. A big 100-inch im­age can be had even if you were to place the pro­jec­tor as far as 3.7m from the screen. Re­mem­ber though, light out­put drops the fur­ther the pro­jec­tion dis­tance; so too when Eco mode is en­gaged (in this case, down to 2,550 lu­mens). Cab­i­net noise also dropped to a low 31dB un­der this en­ergy-sav­ing mode.

While it's not de­signed to be a home the­ater pro­jec­tor, we had no prob­lems sit­ting through the whole of The Dark Knight with the LV-WX320. De­tails strug­gled in low APL scenes, but that's to be ex­pected, and the pleas­ing col­ors more than made up for it. The 10W monau­ral speaker did go pretty loud, and suf­fered lit­tle dis­tor­tion.

De­spite be­ing a DLP pro­jec­tor, the Canon LV-WX320 ex­hib­ited bright and pleas­ing col­ors. Text looked sharp too. The 1.1x lens zoom ra­tio was a bit lim­it­ing dur­ing setup though.
