InFocus IN83 Projector Review
The IN83 is InFocus's upgrade to the IN82, which we reviewed last November. The primary difference between these two projectors is the addition of a DarkChip4, which brings the IN83 from a good projector to a great one. The IN83 is a bright, powerful projector with absolutely excellent contrast and near-perfect color. Our IN83 test units - we used two through the course of this review - seemed to show better performance all around than our test unit of the IN82. The most impressive part of the IN83 is that it can be easily calibrated to adhere very closely to the 6500K color standard, which is a rarity. Sold through custom installers, the IN83 is a great choice for rooms with moderate ambient light, photography display, or even large-screen theater in a light-controlled room. At $5,999 MSRP, the IN83 is a solid value.
