InFocus Play Big IN72
480p DLP Projector
June 28, 2006
InFocus Corporation is one of the largest projector manufacturers in the business, with 13 commercial models and 8 video/home theater models currently in production. The company has been marketing the highly successful Screenplay 4805 as their entry level home theater offering for about two years, and it remains a popular product due to its excellent performance and low price. However, InFocus's newest 480p entry, the Play Big IN72, improves upon the SP-4805 by providing increased lumen output, decreased fan noise, better overall image quality, and attractive casework, all at a retail price of $999 after a temporary rebate that has just gone into effect. (Note: as of this writing, the rebate is scheduled to expire on 7/31/06).
