Hi folks,

I know everyone is anxious to see reviews on the newly announced products at CEDIA. Currently we have (in alpha order) the Mitsubishi HC3000, the Panasonic AE900, and the Sanyo PLV-Z4 in the lab. We are spending a lot of individual time with each of them, and also viewing them side-by-side with a variety of sources.

Since these three products are all native 720p projectors with retail prices around $3,000, the obvious question you want answered is "which one is best?" Our objective will be to give you our best assessment of the relative strengths and limitations of each, so that you can determine which of them might be the best choice for you. However, it is taking some time to sort out the details, and we appreciate your patience.

We are definitely seeing significant differences between them, some of which are quite surprising to us. Our objective is to get the reviews on all three of these units posted no later than the end of next week.

In the meantime, we will finish and post a review of the very high resolution Dell 5100MP this week, since it was in process of being reviewed prior to the arrival of the other units noted above.

Thank you for using ProjectorCentral,

Evan Powell
