    Optoma HD70 review

    9  

    Hi-def on a shoestring? We'll take two! Just when we'd thought the projector world had left us to suffer the insult of high-definition at a mere 32 inches, Optoma finally smashes thuggishly through the £1,000 barrier

    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.

    Sim2 HT305E review

    10  

    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

    This is the projector that home cinema fans in the know have been holding out for - it's the first (relatively) affordable DLP model to use a genuine 1080p chipset.

    SIM2 Domino D35 review

    8  

    SIM2's projectors are almost without fail an exercise in chic design, so the Domino D35's chunky shape and white, slightly plasticky, finish are a touch disappointing. Still, while no swan by SIM2's standards, it isn't remotely an ugly duckling compared to other projectors.

    Luckily for the consumer, the HD-ready gold rush has had the knock-on effect of causing the price of high definition kit to plummet. And mid-range projectors are no exception

    Don't write off LCD projection technology just yet. DLP may dominatethe higher strata of the market (ie the expensive end), but Hitachiably demonstrates that there's plenty of life left in HD-ready LCD projectors

    There is a third high definition projection route: Sony's SXRD technology, or the catchily titled Silicon X-Tal Reflective Display, to use its proper name. This is Sony's latest model to feature this alternative to DLP

    High definition cries out for some seriously large pictures, and DLP projectors give you that luxury - and then some. And Sim2's latest HD-ready beauty builds on all the strengths of its esteemed predecessors and slashes the price

    Big-screen TVs are all very well, but if you want the true cinematic experience you should plump for a home cinema projector like this one from Optoma.

    Currently sitting pretty among our top three favourite projectors is the InFocus IN76 - a stunning DLP performer that rewrites the rule book for what you can expect from a projector costing around £1,500

    After taking one or two hard knocks recently with the arrival of some seriously good and very attractively priced DLP HD Ready projectors, LCD is once again fighting back. And we've got the latest HD-Ready Hitachi, the PJ-TX300 - yours for just £1,300

    Toshiba 52WM48 review

    10  

    Move the sofa aside because Toshiba's 52-inch DLP monster is the ultimate big screen budget TV. Winning the sheer acreage award for TVs for under the two grand mark, Toshiba's first DLP rear-projection TV is simply behemothic.

    ProjectionDesign Action Model Three 1080 review

    10  

    With Sky HD showing all its HD stuff in 1080i and both HD DVD and Blu-ray discs delivering their first movies in 1080i/p, serious AV enthusiasts are being drawn ever more towards display devices with native pixel counts of 1920 x 1080

    It's like buses. You wait and wait for one to turn up, and suddenly three arrive together. Projection-design was supposed to have been first with a 1080p projector, but there were problems with the development of the enabling technology

    Thanks to their irresistible combination of awesome home cinema performance and sumptuous aesthetics, pretty much every projector from Italian company Sim2 has been highly lauded in these pages.

    SIM2 Domino D35 review

    10  

    SIM2 has impressed us over the years with its high performance projectors, but perhaps they're not quite as competitive on price as they might be. Cue the Domino D35: a snip - given its specification - at £3,000.

    LG AN110B review

    The AN110B redesigns the usual DLP optical architecture to form a 'flat' projector that can be hung on the wall like an LCD TV. You can permanently and tidily fix the projector at the back of your room...

    BenQ CP120c review

    The BenQ CP120c is a smart DLP projector that looks even smaller than it really is, because BenQ packages the projector and the cables in separate cases. It took moments to set up, as the auto keystone function works well ...

    Toshiba TDP-FF1 review

    Although the Toshiba TDP-FF1 uses conventional DLP technology, the light source is unusual as the lamp is LED. From one point of view, this is a good thing as LEDs have a long life of more than 10,000 hours...

    Panasonic PT-P1SDEA review

    8  

    Panasonic has a range of Micro Portable LCD projectors that weigh upwards of 1.9kg, but the Panasonic PT-P1SDEA is classified as a home cinema projector, presumably because it doesn't support wireless communication.

    The Optoma EP7150 is essentially an upgrade of the EP729 - being the ultraportable model in the company's range. While its weight is now slightly heavier, the 1.2kg chassis is still ultraportable and compact.

    10  

    There's more to the Xscreen Monaco 80 than meets the eye. Once you've finished admiring its robust, high-gloss frame, you'll discover the screen's not made of your usual flexible fabric. It's rock hard, made from a 4mm layer of hardened glass!
