Would be nice if there was some effort out into this to actually but a little blurb and price on each device. Kinda useless.

Adam, the links in the story all go to a written description in the pertinent Expo booth explaining what is special about each product and why it was worthy of selection.

I’m with Adam. Links don’t do squat because I’m not signing up. What makes these projectors worthy of the mention? I’ll never know. Off to another site.

We will be releasing the full article with images and all the award descriptions next week when Expo has ended. We believe it is reasonable that our Expo attendees, who took the 30 seconds required to supply an email address and their country of origin for a free virtual badge that gains access to 15 booths with proprietary content including individual interviews we conducted with all the manufacturers and an expert panel talk discussing the state of the industry, should be entitled to view this content first. But if someone feels our content is not valuable enough to provide an email we of course understand.

Don't seem to be able to reach any real review on the PX-748 for example. I think the "next week" part wouldn't apply in 2022, did you forget to add the reviews ? Because what i can read is only cereal box type "crunchy and delicious" corpo gloat
