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.

Quickly Moving Industry

We've just posted a review of the Samsung SP-A800B, which is the 1080p DLP projector designed in consultation with Joe Kane. It's an elegant projector with excellent color and gray scale performance, and those who need a projector with perfect color should have it at the top of their list. However, with the latest competitive releases this fall the SP-A800B is not on the leading edge of price/performance. This industry just moves too quickly these days.

Next in the review line up is the Sony VPL-HW10, which I expect to post by Thursday or so. We are still waiting for the arrival of the Optoma HD806, which was supposed to be here by now. Hopefully that will show up in the next couple of days, so we can get that done by next week.

After completion of the Sony HW10 review, we will have reviewed enough of the new 1080p products to begin assigning 5-star ratings. We've already included them in the Samsung review. The rest of the 1080p reviews done so far will be updated with that information by the end of the week.
