Low Cost Unit Reviews To Post Next Week

We've posted two new reviews in the last week, one of the beautiful BenQ PE8720 home theater projector, and the other of the XGA, 4:3 format Mitsubishi XD460U. While the Mitsubishi XD460 is not a home theater projector, it delivers great video and can be used as a multi-purpose data and video projector, subject to the limitations noted in the review. Personally, I really like the video performance on this projector despite its commercial market orientation.more

Epson Poised for a Bigger Chunk of the Market

We have just posted the review of the Epson Cinema 550. As you may know, we had a technical problem with the review sample and we needed to sort out how to interpret it and put it into proper context for the review, which required some extra research. We discuss it in the review, so I won't go into it again here. But I will say that the Cinema 550 is a surprisingly strong release for Epson, and for the money it is extremely competitive, showing well against the Panny AE900 and the Sanyo Z4. Epson is positioning itself to take a bigger chunk of home theater market share than it has in the past.more
