Exciting Home Theater Components

While awaiting arrival of the Epson 6500 UB, we've been able to put up a couple of reviews on two exciting home theater components you'll want to know about. One is the new Da-lite JKP Affinity HD screen. This really is an amazing screen as far as purity of image goes. I was quite surprised to see that the extremely smooth screen surface really did make a difference in how natural the picture looks. We have already ordered a 10.5 foot wide JKP Affinity screen in 2.35 format, and we will be using it on all reviews of 1080p projectors once we get it installed in a few weeks.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

Various Stages of Review

We posted our latest review of the Canon REALis SX7 yesterday afternoon. I love this projector because it does a great job of lighting up my 150" 4:3 Stewart Studiotek 130 screen. For viewing old classic films, which are a particular interest of mine, this is the way to see them. Most people will want the SX7 for high resolution display of graphics and so on, but I really enjoy it as a movie projector.more

Posted Reviews, Pending Reviews

If you are a traveling presenter who wants a lot of light from a tiny package, the new review of the InFocus IN10 will be of particular interest. It is hard to believe you can get this much light out of a 2.4 lb. projector, but InFocus has done it in a product we're proud to list has Highly Rated.more
