The review of one of the most popular models of the fall season, the Epson 8700 UB, has been posted.
Last year's 8500 UB was a dramatic release, and the replacement model 8700 UB has some minor improvements as well as a price reduction. Also, the fact that the two-year warranty covers premature lamp failure for the entire duration of the warranty makes for a very interesting competitive move. Epson remains solidly competitive in the $2000 price range. See review.
We've seen a pre-production sample of Mitsubishi's HC9000D, the high performance 3D projector rated at 120,000:1 contrast. The picture quality is spectacular. We will wait to review a production sample which should be here next month, but this one looks really good so far.
We are awaiting shipment of review samples of 3D units from Sony and JVC, as well as the new premium class Epson units based on reflective LCD. These reviews will be produced as soon as samples become available.
