Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 400 Coming Up

The new 1080p models are beginning to appear on dealer shelves. We posted the review of the very hot Mitsubishi HC5000 yesterday afternoon, and this was the first of several 1080p models we will be looking at. Reviews to come in the 1080p category will include the Optoma HD81, the Panasonic AE1000, and the Sony VPL-VW50. Posting dates for these reviews are yet to be determined, but we will get them done on a priority basis.more

The Best Projector Mitsubishi Has Ever Made

I was planning to post two reviews this week. One of them went up yesterday, which was of the Boxlight Broadview. This little 4.4 lb projector packs a lot of light and widescreen resolution into a little box. It is the only 1280x768 projector currently on the market that is under five pounds, and as such it is the only game in town for mobile presenters who desire to present in widescreen format. We like this unit a lot, and wanted to give it a spotlight on the site.more

New Z5 Review Posted

We have just posted a new review of the terrific Sanyo PLV-Z5, and in a separate shootout article we compare the PLV-Z5 to the Panny AX100U. Both of these are beautiful projectors, but each is better than the other depending on the environment they are in. The Panny AX100 is the stronger product for ambient light situations, and the Sanyo Z5 is the better unit for dark theater use. The one that is right for you depends on how you intend to use your projector.more
