Reviews in process -- May 19

We have the following projectors just recently reviewed, currently under review, or scheduled for review in the near term...

ViewSonic LS830. The LS830 is rated at 4500 lumens and 100,000:1 contrast, is ViewSonic's brightest Full HD 1080p ultra short throw projector, to be ideally matched with ViewSonic's 120" diagonal BrightPanel ambient light rejection screen. Many will be interested in this for ambient light home entertainment as well. The ViewSonic LS830 Road Test has just been posted.

Sony VPL-PHZ10. We were happy to give the Sony PHZ10 our Editor's Choice Award for being one of the hottest and aggressively priced 1920x1200 laser based projectors on the market today. The Sony VPL-PHZ10 review was just posted last week.

Optoma ZU850M. The ZU850 is Optoma's new 8000 lumen, 1920x1200 resolution installation projector. This laser-phosphor based light engine has a 30,000 hour life expectancy. The ZU850 is in house and the review will be completed by next week.

Epson Pro LS10500. The Pro LS10500 is Epson's elegant top of the line home theater projector, featuring 4K enhancement technology and a ultra high contrast laser-based light engine with a 30,000 hour lifespan. The LS10500 has arrived and is in review.

JVC DLA-RS520. One of JVC's latest 4K e-shift home theater projectors, the RS520 is now in house. Featuring 18Gbps architecture, DCI color space, and THX certification, the RS520 is a strong competitive entry for premium custom installation home theater.

The Epson LS10500 and the JVC RS520 compete directly with each other in both performance and price. We are in the process of comparing the relative performance attributes of each with various types of source material.
