  1. Toshiba TDP-MT700 review

    10  

    Projectors meeting the stringent new industry 'HD Ready' criteria are few and far between this side of £3,000. Many manage some of the four key requirements: an HDCP-enabled HDMI/DVI jack...

    Optoma Themescene H78 review

    9  

    Other than maybe InFocus with its Screenplay range, it's difficult to think of any affordable projector brand that's managed to stay quite so consistent as Optoma and its ThemeScene marque.

    Marantz VP-12S4 DLP review

    10  

    The Marantz VP-12 was one of the first highly specified DLP projectors. The original version used the HD2 DMD, capable of 720 x 1280 pixel resolution, and sat at the high-end of its class almost from the outset.

    Optoma ThemeScene H57 review

    10  

    Around £2,000 can buy you a lot of TV these days but in terms of square inches per pound the ThemeScene is way ahead. This quiet projector is based on 1,024 x 576 pixel DarkChip 2 DLP technology

    ViewSonic PJ1165 review

    6  

    Although far more established in the business world than it is in the living room, ViewSonic isn't afraid to have a crack at the home cinema world from time to time. In fact, it scored a major hit recently with its latest 30in LCD TV, the N3000w.

    Sagem MDP-1600 review

    8  

    Okay, here's the deal. Take a sheet of A4 paper, lop a couple of inches off the short side et voilà, the MDP-1600's footprint. Oh, and on the subject of numbers, here's another: £800 - the price in pounds

    Dreamvision Dreamy review

    DreamVision is a French projector manufacturer of some repute. The Dreamy is its new entry level DLP model. The particular optical chip at its core is the latest generation DarkChip 2, which is a native widescreen processor...

    Optoma Themescene RD50 review

    10  

    If you're thinking of buying a decent 50-inch plasma TV, don't expect a great deal of change from around four or five grand. Enter Optoma's ThemeScene RD50 rear projection TV using Texas Instruments' wonderfully named DarkChip2 DLP technology

    Yamaha DPX-1100 review

    9  

    Yamaha is a familiar name in home cinema circles thanks to its trail-blazing AV amplifiers and receivers, but it's rapidly gaining a reputation in another field - video projection.

    Thomson's latest DLP rearprojection TV scooped a 'First Class'award in the Digital Display category at the 2005 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.www.thomson-europe.com

    Thomson 50DSZ645 review

    8  

    It's astonishing how DLP - now the dominant force in video projectors - is revitalising the rear-projection TV market. Only a short time ago, anything other than a flatpanel display - be it plasma or LCD - looked to have no future on the high street

    Sagem HD-D45 review

    10  

    Sagem fully deserved the ample praise it received for its first rear-projection TV.Thankfully, the French company hasn't taken too long to return with a fully high-definition compatible model, the 45in Axium HD-D45.

    Optoma Themescene H57 review

    8  

    Few nuts are more difficult to crack than that of the 'step up' projector. It doesn't take much to spot a massive performance difference between a £1,000 entry level projector and a £3k-plus mid-to-high end alternative

    Mitsubishi HC2000 review

    9  

    As far as projectors are concerned, Mitsubishi has traditionally been associated with the business end of the market. This translates to 4:3 aspect ratios, and the sacrifice of contrast range for brightness

    Dreamvision Dreamweaver 2 review

    10  

    Priced at £4,500, Dreamvision's new DLP projector, the Dreamweaver 2, certainly has the status to put its owners in an elite group. Sleek, smart and very sexy, the Dreamweaver 2 comes in a choice of white, silver or black finishes...

    NEC MultiSync HT510 review

    9  

    NEC has clearly thought about what people want from a living-room product. You get a slim unit that'll easily slot between two armchairs or look inconspicuous mounted on the ceiling, along with an easy one-handed up/down tilting mechanism

    Mitsubishi HC900 projector review

    7  

    Forget big-screen plasmas - the only way to get the true movie-going experience in the comfort of your own home is to invest in a projector. This DLP model produces great pictures when fed with a DVD player

    Thomson Scenium 61DSZ644 review

    8  

    Thomson's CRT-based projection TVs have traditionally won favour with the critics of Home Cinema Choice. But now the brand has junked CRT for a DLP-based light engine. The benefits are enormous

    Themescene RD65 review

    DLP technology now dominates the mid and up-front projection market, so it's no surprise to see inventor Texas Instruments pushing it into new areas, such as this rear-projection TV

    Sim2 Domino 18 review

    8  

    There's no doubt that Sim2 knows how to make seriously tasty projectors. The only problem is that, traditionally, Sim2 quality hasn't come cheap. All that is set to change with the £2,850 Sim2 Domino 18

    Toshiba 28Z44 review

    8  

    Many of the traditional 'quality' brands are now trying to get a bit of the über-budget action,with Toshiba being the latest to give it a go with the £430 28Z44.Surprisingly,the 28Z44's low price hasn't prevented Toshiba...

    Viewsonic PJ400 review

    6  

    It's not often that we are left speechless. But the silence at What Projector towers was truly deafening as we unpacked Viewsonic's PJ400. The reason? Oh, just the small matter of it having the smallest price tag - by a country mile -

    Sony VPL-HS20 review

    On paper, Sony's Cineza projector concept rocks: affordable, designer models designed to appeal to ordinary, non-technical home cinema fans. Some early models even shipped with a free screen!

    Sanyo PLV-70 review

    Only a short time ago, LCD projectors looked distinctly second-rate when compared to rival DLP and CRT technologies. Then Sony threw a cat among the pigeons with its VPL-HW12HT LCD, then came Panasonic's LCD PT...

    Mitsubishi HC3 review

    Cute as a button, here is a projector whose selling pitch is summed up on the manufacturer's website in the following terms: '1300 ANSI lumens means that you can leave the lights on'.Perhaps slightly exaggerated, this remains....
