I was highly impressed with the color of the NEC NP-PA653UL, though not surprised, as this projector is 3LCD and those tend to have great color, in my experience. There are seven Color Modes that are quite similar in color, with minor differences here and there. Those Color Modes are: High-Bright, Presentation, Video, Movie, Graphic, sRGB, and DICOM SIM.
High-Bright performs quite well for a brightest mode. It does have stronger greens and yellows than the other modes, though not so strong that skin tones look sickly. In fact, when you look at the photo in the slider above, you can see that the woman in our test image has regular-colored skin, as opposed to a green tint like I’ve seen on many other projectors. If your viewing room or hall has uncontrollable ambient light, you will be able to use High-Bright to combat it, without sacrificing good color.
Presentation Mode is similar to High-Bright in color, so it is difficult to see any real difference in the photos. The main difference is that blues are slightly more saturated, and greens slightly less so. This is another bright mode, so if you prefer the color of Presentation to High-Bright, you don’t have to sacrifice much in the way of lumens, as you will read on the following page.
