Epson Update

The review of the new InFocus Screenplay 5700 is coming along very well. However we are researching a few more items for it. So it will be posted in the next day or two. Overall it is an exciting machine, and it's a review you'll not want to miss.more

Optoma Review Delayed

Well. This is the problem with predicting when reviews will be posted. In the last update of this page I said the Optoma H76 review would be posted soon "barring unanticipated technical difficulties with the unit." We did receive the unit from Optoma as promised, but unfortunately it was damaged in shipment. I know this is a disappointment to you. It is discouraging for us too, as we are anxious to get a good look at what appears to be a very hot product. But the damage it sustained prevents us from being able to even power it up. So this review will be rescheduled as soon as we can sort this all out with Optoma.more

Giving LCOS Equal TIme

Due to TI's recent technology study we've given a lot of attention to LCD and DLP lately. Meanwhile LCOS (liquid crystal on silicon), an awesome technology in its own right, has been ignored somewhat. So to rectify that inequity, we've just posted a commentary on LCOS to put it into better perspective. Two great LCOS-based projector models, the JVC SX21 and the Dukane 9017, happen to be at the top of our Highly Recommended list for a very good reason. This article explains it all.more

All Evidence Indicates....

The Epson S1 review has just been posted (see review). Those with a mere $999 in their pockets wanting to get their first projector should check it out.more

Unfounded Rumors

We have just rewritten and updated The Great Technology War: LCD vs. DLP. This article reviews all of the advantages and limitations of both LCD and DLP technology so you can determine which is best for you. The industry moves so fast that this is the fourth major update of that article in the last two years.

Also recently posted on the home page is our Special Report on Texas Instruments' lab test that compared LCD and DLP technologies for comparative longevity and stability. This represents our position on the subject, and hopefully will answer many of your questions about it.more
