Summary Roundup of 1080p

We've just posted a review of the new Epson Cinema 1080 projectors. The Home Cinema 1080 sells for just $2,999, and is a great option for DIY folks wanting to get into 1080p performance with as little investment as possible. The Pro Cinema 1080 for $4,999 is similar in performance, but it comes with an assortment of extras.

We are still working on the XA2 HD DVD player from Toshiba, and the Blu-ray players from Pioneer, Panasonic, and Sony (the PS3). We hope to have some comments ready to post next week.more

Entry Level HT on a Budget

Well, okay, it took a couple days longer than I had anticipated, but we've just posted the review of the Optoma HD73. The HD73 is an updated version of the HD72, but both of them will continue to sell as they each have advantages over the other.

By the way, if you are new to home theater and want to get into it with very little cash, note that Optoma has a $100 rebate going on the H31. This means you can pick up one of these outstanding little home theater projectors for amazingly little money. For entry level home theater on a budget, it is one of the best deals going. See Optoma H31 dealers for details.more

JVC DLA-RS1 Receives Editor's Choice Award

What an exciting time it was to get into the new JVC DLA-RS1. This is one of the most amazing projectors we've seen in a long time, and it was a no-brainer to give it our third Editor's Choice Award. If you have the cash to go for the best in home theater, this is the best we've seen for the money, period.

We are finishing up the review of the Optoma HD73, and that should be posted by Monday. We've also got the latest Panamorph anamorphic lens with its automated track, and Toshiba's new HD DVD player, the HD-XA2.more
