Reviews currently underway/scheduled

We've got several projects underway here. In the home theater world, we are taking another look at the Optoma HD8200 so we can finish up our assessment of that one. And the SharpVision Z15000 is expected to arrive shortly.

Now that prices on the Sanyo Z3000 have dropped below $2,000 with a mail in rebate, this model deserves another look as well. It currently represents an outstanding value for those who have light controlled viewing space and want the best possible 1080p picture under $2,000.more

Miscellaneous review status

The long-awaited review of the Epson 6100 was posted on Monday. This one takes the prize for the longest time we've ever spent reviewing a projector! It's a perfect projector for those who need a lot of light, and who are on a budget but still want 1080p performance.

Tomorrow afternoon we will post a review of the Stewart Studiotek 100, a perfectly neutral 1.0 gain white screen designed for professional use.more
