New Projector on Highly Recommended List

Just a quick update for you...as you noticed if you saw the home page or subscribe to our email alerts, we posted the review of the Optoma HD7100 earlier this week. This is an impressive home theater projector in terms of image quality, with some lensing limitations that restrict how it can be installed for best results. But for the money, the image cannot be beat, and it has been added to our Highly Recommended list.more

Peak in Readership

Well, I was doing my best to get the Canon REALiS SX60 review posted by today, but it isn't in the cards. We've been working on it all week, and doing side-by-side comparisons with the Optoma EP910 and the Dell 5100MP (all three of which are 1400x1050 resolution projectors). This extends the review time, but gives us a better take on each unit's strengths and weaknesses. It will take a few more days to get this one wrapped up.more

Review Units in Various Stages

Last week Canon reported to us that the Canon SX60 was delayed until the second half of June, and I posted that info on this page. It turns out that was wrong. The SX6 is the model that was delayed. Dealers currently have the SX60 in stock, and we will review it soon. My apologies for the confusion.

We have other units in various stages of review process now, including the Mitsubishi WD2000 that many have been asking about. If there is a model you'd like to see reviewed, don't hesitate to drop us a note at comments@projectorcentral.com.
