Review activity in July
Update on reviews just published and a peek at what July has in store...
Marc's review of the Optoma HD37 was just posted last week. If you want a home theater projector under $1000, here is one to take a look at. Later this month we will be doing a shootout between the HD37 and the BenQ HT1075, priced at $899, but due to vacation schedules it won't be done till the end of the month.
I just posted Paul's review of the LG PW800 this afternoon. This is a pocket projector that we were not as enthused with as we were LG's PF1500 or LG PH300. But it works for all around portable data and video presentation, and the details are in the review.
Bill is currently taking a look at the new InFocus IN119HDx, a 3200 lumen 1080p model for business and classroom that features a claimed 10,000 hour lamp life in eco mode. This new unit costs less than $700, so Bill will see if it has any good application in HT or gaming while he's at it.
Allan's review of the Canon REALiS WUX500, is almost done but we wanted to get some clarification from Canon product management on a couple points and they've been out this week. So this review is delayed until we can all get together between our respective vacations. I hope to get this review published in another two weeks.
Finally, in the screen world we've got some new developments in ambient light rejection materials. We've got three new products in house and ready for examination, which are the Elite EPV eFinity PolarStar, the Microlite F 3.0, and the Screen Innovations Slate 1.2 Zero Edge FLEX. Bill is setting these up and taking notes on how they perform. We are planning to post this shootout the week of July 20.
