Personal Thoughts on the Z4, AE900 and HC3000

We received some email this week asking for more commentary on the relative merits of the Sanyo Z4, the Panasonic AE900, and the Mitsubishi HC3000. So despite the plan to finish up the review of the Epson Cinema 550 this week, I decided to respond to the emails in article form. Thus I have just posted The New 720p Projectors. These are my personal thoughts on the Z4, the AE900 and the HC3000, and I hope they will be helpful to those trying to sort out which one to order.

The Epson 550 and the Hitachi HDPJ52 reviews are in process. However, I am taking next week off. So we won't get these reviews posted until later in the week of November 28.

It is a Wild Ride

As you may have noticed on the home page, we have just posted the results of our side by side testing of the Sanyo PLV-Z4 and the Optoma H79. Things are changing rapidly in this industry, and it is a wild ride, to be sure.

Next up on test bench are the Mitsubishi HC3000 and the Epson Cinema 550, both of which have just arrived. Assuming they are in working order, we will get reviews of both of them done as soon as possible.
