InfoComm This Week

A new review of the InFocus Screenplay 7210 is now posted. Infocus has established itself as a major force in home theater projectors ever since its launch of the Screenplay series of products. The 7210 is the latest in the line, and it is a dynamic projector for the money.

A further note from Infocus....as of a few days ago, the Screenplay 4805 pricing was dropped to $1,099, and a $100 rebate was instituted for the month of June, bringing the net price on this top-selling model down to $999.more

Several Models in the Queue

We have just posted a review of the Toshiba MT200. This is another 854x480 resolution DLP projector in the entry level, sub-$1500 street price marketplace. It has gained a lot of attention due to its 5x speed color wheel, a unique feature among this group of products. And while it is among the best in the category in terms of image quality, we were surprised that a product with such a fast color wheel would be so lacking in other features commonly found in home theater projectors.

Price Erosion in the Industry

We have just posted a review of the BenQ PE7700. This is the first of the HD2+ 1280x720 DLP projectors to drop below $3,000. It was just seven months ago that the SharpVision Z2000 took HD2+ below $4,000 for the first time, so we are continuing to see some significant price erosion in the industry.more

We have just posted the new Highly Rated Home Theater Projectors page, complete with updated comments and the 5-star ratings. Please make sure to interpret the ratings just within each resolution category. It makes no sense, for example, to compare the performance of a $1200, low-resolution product to an expensive high resolution model. So the ratings reflect relative values between models within a given resolution group.more

Mitsubishi Announces Price Drops

The big news this week for entry level home theater consumers is that Mitsubishi just dropped the price of their HC3 Home Theater Projector from its original $2,795 MSRP to a new official selling price of just $999. We liked this unit at the old price when we first reviewed it. But at $999 it is an extraordinary value for new home theater buyers--it is the first widescreen 16:9 projector to go below the $1,000 mark. You can read an updated review here, or just click over to a list of authorized Mitsubishi dealers who you can get it from.more
