The Epson products are driven by a three-panel 0.9" polysilicon LCD light engine with a 120-watt UHP lamp. The 710c pumps out an amazing 4.0 ANSI lumens per cubic inch, more than any other projector on the market. They have a 1:1.2 manual zoom, and offer up to UXGA compatibility.
Once they begin to ship, we should see Internet pricing for the 700c around $4,600 and the 710c at $5,200. At these budget levels, the only other significant competitor in price/performance would be the Mitsubishi X50 and X70, which are two models priced identically to the 700c and 710c respectively. The Mitsubishi models are 1.2 lbs heavier, and a bit larger in form factor. However, they offer a different performance and feature set for the same price. Buyers will want to check out both vendor's offerings. We expect both to sell very well, especially in light of the supply difficulties being faced by their DLP-based competitors.
