We’ve still got a way to go before we start seeing some really good 3D capable projectors hit the consumer market. Most of the existing ones are either incredibly expensive or just not up to snuff. The Acer S5200 is the latter.
I’ve gotten hundreds of press releases about iPhone apps since the App Store opened. They range from useful – like those that let you repurpose your iPhone as a controller – to the ludicrous. The Sim2Calc falls in the former of those two categories. If you’re planning to install a projector, or if you’ve done so in the past, you know just how much of a pain it can be to figure out all the details. Sim2Calc takes care of all that for you.
It’s been less than two weeks since the Consumer Electronics Show, and announcements of new products are already beginning to flow again. LG’s 3D projector was on display at the show, and I had the opportunity to demo it, but at the time there wasn’t much information as far as a release date or pricing were concerned.

A pair of Epson’s 3LCD projectors got their THX certification today. The 8500 UB and 9500 UB both feature a THX Movie Mode that delivers a more accurate picture quality. The feature also ensures studio black levels and clean signal processing.
Sure, one could complain that the 1024 x 768 resolution of the Sanyo PLC-XF1000 makes it a bit less than exciting, and of course, anything with a 4:3 aspect ratio can and should normally be met with golf claps. What Sanyo’s PLC-XF1000 lacks in other departments though, it hopes to make up for by outdoing every other 100V projector on the market in brightness.
