Various Stages of Review

We posted our latest review of the Canon REALis SX7 yesterday afternoon. I love this projector because it does a great job of lighting up my 150" 4:3 Stewart Studiotek 130 screen. For viewing old classic films, which are a particular interest of mine, this is the way to see them. Most people will want the SX7 for high resolution display of graphics and so on, but I really enjoy it as a movie projector.

We now have several new home theater projectors in house, and in various stages of review. These include the Sony VPL-VW40, the BenQ W5000, and the BenQ W20000. We got into the BenQ W5000 first, so that will probably be the next review to post, but we will try to get all of them done in the next two weeks or so.

If you are interested in rock bottom prices for 1080p projectors, take note that the Sanyo Z2000 now has $600 worth of rebates against the official price of $2,495, which brings the maximum price you will pay for this gem down to a remarkable $1,895. The rebate is scheduled to end on March 31, but it adds to the already impressive price/performance of the Z2000, making it one of the most competitive 1080p models on the market at this moment.
