We've just posted Bill's review of the NEC HT410 entry-level home theater projector that is now selling for under $1300. This is an intriguing product that has a unique combination of features and video performance. In particular, we found its HDTV performance to be remarkable for a product in its resolution and price class. If you want an inexpensive bigscreen HDTV, and you are not bothered by rainbows on DLP projectors with 2x speed color wheels, the HT410 could be an ideal choice for you.
We have several other projectors under review at the moment, including the Canon Realis SX50, the Mitsubishi HC100, and the Optoma 739 which many of you have been continuing to ask for. We have a lot to report on these units, and we'll get the reviews posted as soon as we can.
If you missed the announcements last week, we have opened a new forum site, BigScreenForums.com. You can access it by clicking the forum tab above. Also, if you are looking for a plasma TV or LCD TV to supplement your primary front projection system, you can find info on all those products on HDTVSolutions.com, by clicking the green tab above.
Meanwhile, we remain committed to bringing you the latest news and reviews in the world of projectors. After all, feature length movies are designed to be viewed in VERY LARGE scale. And big surround sound demands big video. Projectors are the only way to get truly large format dramatic presentation. So as sexy as the new flatscreen plasma and LCD TVs are, my personal preference is and shall always be the front projector for the ultimate home theater experience.
Thanks for using ProjectorCentral,
