Economical Screen Shortcuts

We are currently working on a review of the Philips bCool XG1. We also have the Mitsubishi XD50U Mini-Mits and the BenQ PB2220 in the lab as well. All three of these units are sub-4 lb. ultra-portables with high contrast and native XGA resolution. They are selling in the same price range, so we are evaluating them as a group and will post the reviews of all three next week.

Thinking of painting a wall to save money on a screen? One of our readers, Jerry Chasteen, just posted an excellent commentary on his painting experience.

The very hot Sanyo PLV-Z2 will commence shipment in the United States in another few days. Dealers are taking orders now. You can expect a waiting list for this one. We will review it as soon as we can get a unit in here.
