Narrowing the ANSI Contrast Performance Gap

The review of the Sanyo Z700 has just been posted. Don't miss this one if you are looking for 1080p at a rock bottom price. As we did last year, the reviews of this year's 1080p models will be posted, initially, without the 5-star ratings. We want to be able to do some shootouts before making final 5-star rating assessments.more

No Star Assesments Just Yet

Well, we were able to get the Sanyo Z60 review posted last week, but I decided to hold the Z700 review until tomorrow. The reason is that we have received the Mitsubishi HC7000, and the Panasonic AE3000 is arriving today. Since we have the opportunity, we want to see these units side by side before publishing any comments.more

Gaming and Projectors

We currently have the newest Sanyo units, the Z700 and the Z60, in the review process. We will get them both posted this week. Following those, if the review units arrived on schedule, will be the Mitsubishi HC7000 to be posted next week, and the Panasonic AE3000 will be the week after.more

CEDIA Wrap Up

The CEDIA trade show has wrapped up for another year, and our review of the show has just been posted.

Fascinating things appeared at this show. The big competitive battle this fall between LCD and DLP will be in the area of ANSI contrast. The latest LCD products are showing contrast potential that nobody ever thought would be possible with LCD. We are anxious to get our hands on some of these new high contrast models to see what they can really do. We are working with the vendors to schedule the delivery of review samples of all of the latest releases.more
