HT Reviews -- Update 12/8
I realize that everyone is anxious to see the Mitsubishi HC7800 review, so it is no fun to have to announce a delay...
The review sample HC7800 we received (at our request) is a late stage pre-production unit, which at the time we requested it was anticipated to be available several weeks before production samples. We look at pre-production samples under one condition: if we see an issue in the pre-production sample that the vendor says is resolved in production units, then we want to see a sample of the production unit before going to press. And that is what we have happening at the moment. The good news is that Mitsubishi has just confirmed this morning that a production sample HC7800 can be delivered to us on Tuesday.
So despite the disappointment that you and I both feel that we can't meet our anticipated pub date on this review, it would be best if we push this back a few days. I will be able to tell you more on Tuesday once we have seen the production sample.
