HT Reviews -- Update 12/8

I realize that everyone is anxious to see the Mitsubishi HC7800 review, so it is no fun to have to announce a delay...

The review sample HC7800 we received (at our request) is a late stage pre-production unit, which at the time we requested it was anticipated to be available several weeks before production samples. We look at pre-production samples under one condition: if we see an issue in the pre-production sample that the vendor says is resolved in production units, then we want to see a sample of the production unit before going to press. And that is what we have happening at the moment. The good news is that Mitsubishi has just confirmed this morning that a production sample HC7800 can be delivered to us on Tuesday.

So despite the disappointment that you and I both feel that we can't meet our anticipated pub date on this review, it would be best if we push this back a few days. I will be able to tell you more on Tuesday once we have seen the production sample.

For projectors with IRIS, like this one, it would be interesting and esay in a review to post somes figures regarding contrast, like ANSI contrast and brightness in complete darkness when a black image is projected (in foot-lambert or candela) when the iris is on and also off. This would give a more precise idea of the image quality, and would broad the usefulness of the nice reviews published here.

I'm checking in on this daily also, thanks for the delay message. I've noticed for a while now that your calculator for the 7800 does not have the offset included. I used the 4000 calculator to figure out if it would work in my space.

Thank you for explaining the delay. I'm eager to read how it all works out.
