Hi folks,

The latest review to be posted is the Toshiba MT500. This is a low lumen output machine, but it produces a beautiful picture on a smaller home theater screen. For those who have limited space and don't want to super-size their screens, this one is a gem.

With its native 1024x576 resolution, we will get a lot of email asking how the MT500 compares to native XGA machines like the NEC LT240K, which deliver the same physical resolution in 16:9 mode. Actually, we currently have the Mitsubishi XD350 and the Philips bCool XG1 on the lab bench. Both are high contrast XGA products like the NEC LT240K. I hope to get reviews done on both of these by the end of next week. So comparative comments on all of these units are forthcoming.

Thanks for using ProjectorCentral,

Evan Powell
