Optoma 3D-XL Projector Adapter Preview
For 3D lovers who already own a legacy 720p 3D-ready DLP video projector such as Optoma's HD67, which is incompatible with the newer 3D Blu-ray spec, Optoma has a cheap solution to get you connected to 1080p 3D sources.The new 3D-XL Projector Adapter is the first converter box that allows 720p 3D projectors play 1080p 3D Blu-ray discs, 3D PS3 console games, and 3D broadcast content.  It works by accepting 1.4a HDMI signals output by 1080p 3D players and down converting it to a 1.3 HDMI signal that current 720p 3D DLP projectors can display.  The catch for the 3D-XL is that these legacy projectors must be those that operate at 120Hz refresh rates.The 3D-XL has two HDMI 1.4a inputs, 1 USB port and 1 RS232 port, and can accept common global video inputs and video formats up to 1080p ...

Epson Home Cinema 1080UB LCD Projector
The Epson Home Cinema 1080UB is a 1080p LCD projector, designed with superior black levels in its class as the main selling point.   Epson dismissed the square, blocky look of most projectors (and, for that matter, Epson’s newer models) in favour of a sexy, contoured look.  The projector has no sharp edges, instead implementing rounded sides and corners, and is white.  The design is aesthetically pleasing and easily distinguishes the Epson Home Cinema 1080UB from other projectors.Looking at the unit from the front, the lens is edged off-centre to the right side, while the left side shows the vent for the fan.  The infrared receiver is neatly squeezed in between these two.  Sidling to the rear, the various inputs can be seen.  2 HDMI v1.3 inputs are included, typical for 1080p projectors.  Next to those are a PC input, as ...

Mitsubishi HC6000 3LCD Video Projector
Introduction Mitsubishi’s new HC6000, using advanced three-panel inorganic LCD panels (3LCD), replaces last year’s HC5000. It is the company’s latest 1080p 3LCD front projector. I was very pleased to discover that Mitsubishi made significant improvements in the critical area of black-level performance over the HC5000. Like the previous model, the HC6000 has a comprehensive feature package. Most of the features in the projector are intended to help you with the set-up and installation of the projector and to allow fine-tuning of the picture. This new model also utilizes an improved lens compared to its predecessor and, as a result, the HC6000 delivers sharp and highly detailed pictures. Let’s see how it compares with other 1080p-resolution projectors at or near its price range to determine its value quotient. Design The HC6000 is a compact, lightweight projector with a relatively small overall footprint. It measures ...

Sanyo PLV-Z2000 3LCD Projector
Introduction There is no doubt that HDTVs in general are getting more affordable, meaning more accessible to the masses, while performance and features are improving to a degree. Front video projectors are no exception to this trend. Enter Sanyo’s latest 1080p 3LCD front projector, the PLV-Z2000, which is a perfect example of just such a projector. The PLV-Z2000 delivers reasonably good performance for the dollar, offers generous connectivity and has a solid feature package to boot. Set-up flexibility is quite good with some features that are usually found only on much more expensive projectors. Design The look of the projector is not attractive, to say the least. You may want to take pains to camouflage it on your ceiling. It is a squarish box with a relatively small footprint, measuring nearly six inches tall by 16 inches wide and 13-and-a-half inches ...

Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 1080 LCD Video Projector
Introduction The 1080p projection market just got a lot more interesting, thanks to the arrival of Epson’s PowerLite Home Cinema 1080. While other big-name projection companies like Sony, Mitsubishi, and Panasonic have priced their entry-level 1080p projectors between $4,500 and $6,000, Epson is making a bold statement with the Home Cinema 1080, which costs just $2,999. Inherent skeptic that I am, my first thought when I see a product priced so aggressively is, what gives? Surely some big sacrifices must take place to reach that price point. Even on paper, I could tell that the Home Cinema 1080 doesn’t skimp in the features department, but how would its image quality measure up? Set-up Over the past few years, I’ve closely followed the progression of Epson’s high-definition projector line. The first-generation PowerLite TW100, which cost $4,995 back in 2002, still serves as my primary living room display. While it renders generally clean, colorful HD and DVD images, it ...
