Hi folks,

We have just posted a review of the Toshiba MT200. This is another 854x480 resolution DLP projector in the entry level, sub-$1500 street price marketplace. It has gained a lot of attention due to its 5x speed color wheel, a unique feature among this group of products. And while it is among the best in the category in terms of image quality, we were surprised that a product with such a fast color wheel would be so lacking in other features commonly found in home theater projectors. Unfortunately, the specification of the 5x wheel speed gives the impression that it is fully loaded for home theater, when in fact it is not. Overall, the MT200 will be an ideal home theater solution for some, and not a good choice for others, largely depending upon how you want to install it.

We currently have several models in the queue for review, including the Optoma H79, the Mitsubishi HC900, and the InFocus Screenplay 7210. All of these reviews will be appearing in May.

We are also working on comparative comments on the new crop of 854x480 projectors. That commentary will be up in May also.

If there are models you are particularly anxious to see reviewed, please drop us a note at We are always happy to hear from you.

Thanks for using ProjectorCentral,
