Posts with topic InFocus X2:

Back to Full Operation

Following the posting of the InFocus 4805 review last Friday, we have now added a look at the InFocus X2. The predecessors to these two units, the X1 and the 4800, were basically the same projector packaged for two different markets. The X2 and 4805 are completely different products. The X2 review discusses the differences.more

Back from Conferences

We have just posted the InFocus 4805 review. This is a surprising projector and a terrific value for the money that we will add to the Highly Recommended list.

We are planning to post reviews of the InFocus X2 and the Mitsubishi HC2000 by next Wednesday. Other units we have on hand including the Sanyo PLC-XU60 and the BenQ 7800 will unfortunately have to wait until after the CEDIA trade show, which happens at the end of next week.more

Attractive Street Prices

We've just been informed that we will receive the InFocus 4805 next week. If that happens the review that everyone is asking for on this unit will be completed by the following Friday. We are also currently working on the InFocus X2, the Mitsubishi HC2000, and the Sanyo PLC-XU60. The Mits is a dedicated HT unit. The InFocus X2 is of interest to many because it is an InFocus product, and because it is below $1,000. The Sanyo deserves some attention because is a beautiful and powerful machine for both data and video applications.more

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

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

Prioritzing Our Review Schedule

Among the portable projectors that are getting a lot of attention these days are the very smallest and lightest--those weighing under three pounds. We are finishing up a comparative review of three popular products in this category, the InFocus LP70+, the NEC LT10, and the PLUS V3-131. This review will be posted by end of day Monday.more
