Home Theater Projectors
News and Updates

May 9, 2003

Hi folks,

As many of you have noticed, the Buyer's Guide on this site is designed to orient the consumer to basic performance factors in projectors, such as lumen output, resolution, weight, and so on. For those buying for commercial or mobile use, this is often as much as they need. But the Buyer's Guide does not address many of the key issues of concern to the discriminating home theater buyer. So we are in the midst of a major rewrite in order to produce a focused "Home Theater Buyer's Guide." It is a larger project that you might imagine, and we will post it as soon as we can. It should provide answers to a lot of questions we've been handling one-on-one via your emails.

Many of you have been asking about the existence of a DVD player with DVI output. We now have one in house. It is called the Bravo D1, from a Southern California-based company called V, Inc. This DVI-enabled progressive scan DVD player also has MPEG-4 playback and a number of other features. Initial shipments just commenced April 15, and it is selling for the remarkably low retail price of $199.00 through the manufacturer's website. A review of the Bravo D1 is underway and should be posted next week.
