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 ...

Marantz VP-11S2 DLP Video Projector
Introduction Within the past year, there has been a large leap forward in DLP front-projector technology, which has thankfully been accompanied by a noticeable reduction in price.  Marantz, well known for manufacturing topnotch gear, has been at the forefront of this evolution with their VP-11S1, VP-15S1 and now their VP-11S2 projectors.  The VP-11S2 reviewed here is their current top of the line projector.  It replaces their VP-11S1, yet is priced at $14,999, smack dab in the middle of the pricing of its predecessor and the VP-15S1.  A long-throw version is also available for slightly more money. Those looking for DLP projectors now have two outstanding choices from Marantz.  The question that will face most shoppers is whether or not the VP-11S2 is worth the $5,000 premium over the already excellent VP-15S1.  While that ultimate decision has to be made by you, ...

Planar PD8150 1-Chip DLP Projector
Introduction Planar, a large front-projector manufacturer on the professional and industrial side of the business, broke into the home theater market late last year after purchasing Runco International, a well-known high-end HDTV manufacturer.  Their recently introduced PD8150 is a one-chip DLP projector with a native resolution of 1080p (1920 x 1080), retailing for $7,999, which isn’t the cheapest option in its class, but when you consider its lineage and Runco brethren, its price tag seems to be something of a bargain.  Following in the Runco tradition, the PD8150 does have the ISF C3 lockable Day and Night mode features, which allow the installer/calibrator to create two new picture modes per input, locking in the calibration settings to ensure that they are never lost.  It is an excellent performer with a couple of flaws, one of which will be remedied in a ...

Samsung SP-A800B 1-Chip DLP Projector
Introduction Samsung first showed their latest flagship front projector, the SP-A800B, at last year’s CEDIA show in September of 2007. Having used the previous 720p model, the SP-H710AE, as a reference for well over a year, I had very high expectations of the new 1080p-resolution one-chip projector. Now that I have had the opportunity to live with the SP-A800B for an extended period of time, and having run it through its paces, I can say with confidence that I am not in the least disappointed with its performance.  It is also beautifully designed and elegant-looking. When compared with my previous reference, the Samsung SP-H710AE, also designed by Joe Kane, the new 800B exceeds its predecessor in performance in a number of key areas. Of course, the 1080p resolution means you get more than double the number of pixels on the screen, ...

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 ...
