Issues with the Epson

In case you have not been tuning in lately, we've been trying to resolve an issue with the Epson 6500UB and 6100 before proceeding with the reviews. The issue is that they tend to fall out of focus during the first half hour of a viewing session, if they have been started up at room temperature. Epson maintains that this may occur during an initial break-in period, but that they will stabilize with time. We have been putting our test units through a series of power up and power down cycles, and putting some hours on them to see if the defocusing issue is resolved with normal use.more

Mitsubishi Rebates

In case you missed it, Mitsubishi has announced rebates on several of its home theater projectors including the HC6500, the HC5500, and the HC1600. The rebate on the HC6500 is $200, bringing the official street price down to $2,295. As luck would have it, this rebate is well-timed. We are planning to do a shoot-out comparison between the Mits HC6500 and the Panny AE3000 next week. However, since it is Thanksgiving week, we expect to post it a week from Monday.more

1080p Reviews in the Pipeline

Just a quick note to let you know what we've got going at the moment. Currently we've got the Samsung SP-A800 and the Mitsubishi HC6500 in review. Those reviews should appear later this week and early next week, although I'm not sure which will be done first. The Sony VPL-HW10 and the Optoma HD806 are expected to arrive shortly. So there are a lot more 1080p reviews in the pipeline.
