Reviews -- the latest 10/28

As of a week ago things looked good for wrapping up the Panny AR100 review by today, but we need a couple more days to clarify some details...

So...we're going to post it on Tuesday. Overall, the AR100 is looking like a very strong unit for ambient light use. So if you need a 1080p projector for living room/home entertainment use, this review will be of particular interest. The review will also contain comments on the differences between the AR100 and the Epson 8350 for dark room home theater.

Mitsubishi has confirmed that the HC7800D will commence shipments in the US by the end of November. However, we do not expect a production sample to arrive until mid-November some time. Once it arrives we will be able to make a better prediction as to when the review will be completed.

We expect to hear shortly from Epson on the schedule for the 5010. Once we know something, we'll post it here.

Tapping my fingers over here waiting on the AR100 review. I'm dying to pull the trigger on this purchase. You're review is going to go a long way towards that decision. Hurry it up! ;)

Hi,

Optoma has released ML 500 LED projector. It seems to me a good projector with LED lamp and multi-purposed. Can you please do review soon?

Thanks.

Hugh

I will want to read you review of the HC7800D. I have been waiting for this machine for some time but I may just buy the Sony Helmet for a lot less money. To watch 3D you have to put something on your head anyway. So instead of getting out the glasses for an occassional spot of 3D, I think I'll just get out the helmet.

I absolutely can't wait to read your review on the AR100 I'm still trying to decide whether or not I should spring for the AE7000 or the much less expensive. AR100.
