Projector News and Industry Commentary

Bulletins about upcoming product reviews and releases, tradeshows, new technology and advanced product features as well as our thoughts and observations on all things related to projectors.

Busy Time of Year

Yesterday we posted the anxiously awaited review of the Panasonic AX200. I forgot to mention in that review that the replacement lamp for the AX200 is $395. I will update the review today with that info.

Today we've posted Bill's new review of an exceptional XGA projector, the Epson 77c, selling for just $749.

In the lab right now are two new 1080p projectors, the Sony VPL-VW60 and the InFocus IN82, which is that company's first 1080p projector. Also currently under review are the BenQ W500, which is an entry level 720p projector under $1,000, and the new 3000-lumen widescreen projector from Panasonic, the Panasonic PT-FW100U. We expect to be receiving the Panasonic AE2000 the Sanyo PLV-Z2000, and the Epson Cinema 1080 UB shortly.

One other bit of news, Planar's announcement of the PD8120, the least expensive of the three new 1080p models debuted at CEDIA, has been retracted. That model will not be brought to market as planned, and it has been deleted from our Projector Database.

It is a busy time of year for reviews. We will get them done as quickly as we can reasonably do them.
