Wrapping Up Some Reviews

To update you on the review schedule....we are wrapping up the review of the Epson Cinema 500, but are still awaiting feedback from Epson on a couple of issues. We have added the Epson Cinema 200 to the review as well, so both products will be covered. I will post this tandem review as soon as we clarify a few details.more

Yamaha 1px510 Added to highly Recommended List

We have just posted the review of the Yamaha LPX-510, and are pleased to be adding it to our Highly Recommended list. This is a great solution for those buying a fully installed home theater system from a professional installer. For the do it yourself'er, it is a bit high in price, and the Sony HS20 or BenQ 8700 are better choices in terms of pure image quality for the money. But read the review for more comments on this.

We had hoped to finish the Epson Cinema 500 today as well, but it will be up early next week. I will update this page with more upcoming review info at that time.more

Great Results with the DVDO iScan

Setting Up Summer Review Schedule

Thanks for all the email requesting reviews of the projectors you are most interested in. We are setting up our summer review schedule, and our intent is to get to as many of the units you have asked for as possible. These would include several of the HD2+ machines, including the InFocus Screenplay 7205 (a.k.a. the Toshiba MT800), the BenQ 8700 (updated edition), and the Optoma H77. We have also called in for review the Epson Cinema 500 and Epson Cinema...more

CES Heavy on TV's

Well, another Consumer Electronics Show (CES) has come and gone, having just wrapped up in Las Vegas this weekend. The show itself was huge. Traffic on the exhibit hall floors exceeded everyone's expectations. Frankly this is the first show in quite a while where it was tough to get from A to B without having to elbow your way through the crowd.

As far as video systems go, this year's show was primarily oriented toward plasma TVs, LCD TVs, and rear projection TVs. Having just seen a roll-out of a number of new projectors at CEDIA in September, there wasn't a lot of new projector release activity at this show. However, there is some news to tell you about.more
