Setting the Price-Performance Standard

We have just completed and posted two of the four SXGA+ reviews in the schedule. In our opinion, the Optoma EP910 is a remarkable accomplishment that sets a new price/performance standard in the SXGA+ category (see review). Meanwhile, the aggressively priced Dell 5100MP represents an exceptional value in being the first of the SXGA+ projectors to go under $3,000 (see updated review).more

SXGA Reviews to Appear Next Week

Many of you are anticipating the coming reviews of the SXGA+ resolution projectors. We are working hard on them and doing a lot of comparative side-by-side evaluations with different sources and types of materials. Included in the review group so far are the Dell 5100MP, the Optoma EP910, and the projectiondesign evo2sx+.more

Some Reviews Take Longer Than Others

We have just posted the long awaited review of the Infocus Play Big IN76. For a variety of reasons, reviews sometimes take longer than we anticipate, and this was one of them. Next up in the 720p resolution class will be the Optoma HD7100, and with any luck we'll get it posted next week. Also coming next week will be a review of the entry level Viewsonic Cine1000, for those on budgets under $1,000.more

Rainbow Artifacts

We've got quite a few reviews underway. Those closest to posting at the moment are the InFocus Play Big IN76 and the Optoma HD7100. However, the review of the SXGA+, high resolution 4:3 projectors is underway as well. If all the equipment arrives on schedule, this review will include the new Canon SX60, the Optoma EP910, the projectiondesign evo2sx+, as well as another look at the Dell 5100MP which has been on the market since last August.more

The Ideal Solution

Well, first off, thanks kindly to all of you that wrote in during this past week to express your thoughts on the 4:3 issue. The feedback was enormously helpful. Not only that, but it was overwhelmingly in favor of our researching and commenting more on native 4:3 options for home theater and digital photography. We certainly intend to do this.more

Which One is Best?

I know everyone is anxious to see reviews on the newly announced products at CEDIA. Currently we have (in alpha order) the Mitsubishi HC3000, the Panasonic AE900, and the Sanyo PLV-Z4 in the lab. We are spending a lot of individual time with each of them, and also viewing them side-by-side with a variety of sources.more
