We first saw Epson’s laser-powered LS10000 projector at the 2014 CEDIA Expo. Production was limited then but now they’re widely available. Today I run it through my benchmark suite and watch a whole lotta movies!
Vizio has gone all-in on picture quality with its latest lineup of Ultra HD televisions. Today I’m getting thoroughly involved with the M65-C1, a 65-inch panel with a full-array backlight, Vizio Internet Apps Plus smart TV interface and connection options that include HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2.
If you’re looking for something different than traditional roll-up or fixed-frame projection screen designs, there’s a third option – borderless. We’ve seen two examples from Screen Innovations; now I’m checking out Stewart Filmscreen’s new LuminEsse product.
Today I’m looking at a breakthrough projector from the Optoma – the HD91+. It sports full home theater cred with accurate color, 3D and a DarkChip 3 DLP device. The best part it is has an LED light engine and sells on the street for only $4000.
Screen Innovations has always thought outside the box with its screen materials and frame designs. Today I'm checking out the all-new Slate .8 projection surface along with a Zero Edge FLEX frame kit and an integrated LED lighting system.
The hot trend in front projection these days is firmly in the genre of compact value-priced DLP models. Their large, bright and sharp images provide a great solution for less than the price of many flat panels. Today we're checking out Optoma's latest, the HD37.
BenQ adds to its line of high-performance value-priced portable projectors with the new HC1200. A super-bright DLP model, it’s perfect for corporate warriors and home theater enthusiasts alike. Today I’ll run it through my benchmark suite and check out some 2D and 3D content.
The battle of DLP vs. LCD in the value-priced projector market continues with the new HD161X from Optoma. It combines a bright sharp picture with 3D and full calibration features. It also offers a group of image enhancements that help set it apart from the competition.
Most of the sub-$2000 projectors I review require a full calibration to look their best. BenQ's HT1085ST can ace my benchmark tests by simply switching to its Cinema picture mode. Coupled with a sharp bright picture, this is one impressive display.
It wasn't long ago that a projector with lens shift would cost you at least $2,500. Epson's new Home Cinema 3500 3LCD Projector breaks that barrier with an MSRP of $1,600. In addition you get a full set of calibration controls, 3D and plenty of light output.
When 4K televisions first hit the market a year ago they were priced at the extreme high-end; but second-generation sets are becoming more affordable. In this review, I'm checking out Sony's XBR-65X900B, a 65" (diagonal) Ultra HD set with great picture quality, solid connectivity, and a little more down-to-earth price-tag.
