Conclusion: There’s enough good stuff in the H5085’s pictures to reassure us that Vivitek still very much knows its picture quality onions. In fact, it frequently looks outstanding with bright, colourful footage. It struggles a little with darker stuff, though. There's no doubt that projectors like Panasonic’s AT6000, Sony’s HW50 and JVC’s X35 all add 3D to their spec sheets while also delivering impressive pictures for only marginally more money than you need for the H5085.
Pros: Bright scenes look outstanding, Excellent setup flexibility, Runs quietly in standard lamp mode
Cons: Black level response not the best, No 3D, Slightly expensive for a non-3D model
