  1. Optoma Themescene HD72i review

    Optoma Themescene HD72i review

    10  

    For £1,500, the HD27i offers more than you have any right to expect in the high-definition world. Not only is it a DLP model - usually found on the higher branches of the consumer electronics money tree - but it is compatible with 1080p sources

    Few DLP projectors manage to break the £2K barrier so we wondered how much of the format's quality would be preserved with this £1,900 model. At first glance, it seems that the savings have been made on its appearance

    "Hang it all," said some bright marketing spark, presumably, and so it's come to pass. Because now, it's not just screens and speakers that need straightening above the sofa but your HD-ready projectors too

    InFocus IN72 review

    10  

    HD-Ready or not? Well, not, it seems, with the InFocus IN72, so how come we like it so much? In a word: price. The company is consciously moving downmarket to make an impression at the budget end of the high street

    Epson EMP-TW700 review

    As the budget HD Ready projection market gets more competitive, the number of brands getting involved is dwindling. But Epson's still there, and has in fact just launched a new 'flagship' home cinema projector...

    Yamaha DPX-1300 review

    8  

    Skimming over the spec sheet for the Yamaha DPX-1300, you may get the impression that this DLP projector isn't anything special, but a quick look can be deceptive. Ok, so the native resolution is just 1280 x 720

    Sony VPL-VW50 review

    We've long admired Sony's SXRD projection technology, first on the company's Qualia 004, and then on the 'Ruby' VPL-VW100. Now the Pearl has come along, delivering the technology at a price point that doesn't make our eyes water

    Given the price of UK houses these days, there are doubtless thousands of people with home cinema ambitions bigger than their small living rooms would seem to allow

    Couple '1080p projector' with '£5,000' and you've got an exciting proposition. Optoma's new DLP video projector is the first to offer full-on HD at this price point, and it has many other tricks up its sleeve too

    Optoma Themescene HD72i review

    9  

    Despite being one of the cheapest HD Ready projectors in town (along with the InFocus IN76), the build quality of the Optoma Themescene doesn't bode well. The finish is flimsy and lightweight, while the zoom and focus rings feel loose and cheap

    Optoma Themescene HD70 review

    The Optoma HD70 represents a breakthrough in the pricing of home projectors; it's an HD-ready, 720p DPL projector for under £700. If you were thinking of getting a home theatre set-up, and thought 480p was all your budget could afford, think again

    The benefits of having a Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution display become easier to see the bigger the HD picture you're watching. So it follows that Full HD's most natural home is the projector world.But what technology serves the format best?

    InFocus IN78 review

    10  

    We're getting used to InFocus rewriting the projector market rulebook. Its most recent range in particular, comprising the IN72, IN74 and IN76, has delivered universally outstanding performance levels at prices that shame some rival brands

    Nowadays it's not enough to just be HD anymore. To be really embraced by the home cinema cognoscenti, you have to be Full HD 1080p, with 1920 x 1080 pixels of native resolution and offer compatibility with the 'higher definition' 1080p format

    Ladies and gentlemen, you are cordially invited to join me as I explore a projector that I think could rock the world to its very foundations. Strong words? Certainly. Over the top? You might think so... but you'd be wrong

    Sony KDS-70R2000 review

    Now here's something we don't see every day: a high-end microdisplay rear-projection TV. The irresistible rise of the flat TV seems to have murdered the rear-pro mass market. But that's all changed, for this is simply the best rear-projection TV ever made

    Now that LCD has serious competition from DLP models at the budget end of the market, its promoters can't be complacent. Hitachi's PJ-TX300 seems to meet those expectations with its £1,300 price tag, HD-ready inputs and native resolution of 1280 x 720

    LCD forever seems to be playing catch-up to other DLP technologies. Perfect timing, then, for Hitachi to give the technology a shot in the arm with the successor to one of last season's finest LCD efforts.

    When it comes to watching high definition, the bigger the screen you watch it on, the more impressive it looks. That's precisely why we love HD Ready projectors so much - especially when they're as affordable as the £1,645 Sanyo PLV-Z5.

    Building on the strengths of its predecessor, SIM2's HT305E has a new lamp, better optics and improved electronics. The design is based on the latest high contrast DarkChip3 DLP optical chip
