Impressive High Contrast Image from the Hitachi JDPJ52

We've just posted the review of the Hitachi HDPJ52. This elegant looking unit features black high-gloss casework, so you get styling along with an impressive, high contrast image. This is Hitachi's best home theater projector yet, and should compete extremely well against the other new high contrast LCD projectors. It has a higher MSRP than the others, but street prices will tell the real story, so it is worth getting quotes on this one as well as its competitors if you are shopping in the $2,000 to $3,000 range.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
