Editor's Choice to Mitsubishi HC4900
Last week's announcement from Mitsubishi that they were offering a $500 rebate and taking the price of the HC4900 to a mere $1995 stimulated a lot of inquiries. How does the HC4900 stack up against the other aggressively priced 1080p model, the Sanyo Z2000? Well, we set them up and took another close look at both of them. The review of the Mitsubishi HC4900 is complete and posted. As you will see, the HC4900 and the Z2000 are both formidable competitors, and each has some real advantages over the other. However, we were impressed enough with the combination of picture quality, features, and price, to give the HC4900 our Editor's Choice Award.
The Epson Cinema 720 and 1080 UB units have finally arrived. However, Christmas and New Year's vacations are going to slow the review process. Neither one will be posted prior to Christmas. We may be able to get one of them done next week prior to New Year's, but no promises. My objective is to get them both completed by January 5, which is the week prior to the big CES show in Las Vegas.
Thanks very much to all of you for your enthusiastic support and readership this year. All of us at ProjectorCentral wish you a happy, healthy, and safe holiday season.
