We've received a number of emails asking about comparisons between the
Mitsubishi HC5500, and other 1080p models in the same price range. In particular, the BenQ W5000 is of interest since it is a DLP-based model selling for street prices below $2,500.
We are currently looking at the HC5500 and the W5000 and should have comparative notes posted by about Wednesday or so. Following this we will also do side-by-sides between the HC5500 and the Panasonic AE2000 as well as the Sanyo Z2000. We will try to get notes on them done by the end of the week. As of this writing, these are the four most popular 1080p models on the site, as measured by the total number of database accesses by readers in the past week.
