  1. Acer XD1280D review

    Acer XD1280D review

    7  

    The Acer is a chunky projector that is based around a bright DLP chip that works well even in a sunny room. It's got a row of connections that give a choice of DVI, VGA, S-Video and composite, plus an audio connection, USB for the mouse and a VGA output

    Optoma Themescene D73 review

    9  

    Apparently, sub-£2k DarkChip3 DLP projectors are like buses: you wait a lifetime for one, then two come along at once. What's more, this new Optoma is a whole £400 cheaper than its DarkChip3 rival the InFocus IN78

    Sony VPL-EX3 review

    What exactly is Sony doing so right? There have been some hardware misses, of course - we shudder whenever we think of its painful DRM-ridden MP3 players - but this projector is a sign of everything that is right with the electronics giant

    Panasonic PT-AX100 review

    9  

    The AX100 is fairly large by budget projector standards, but is still reasonably easy on the eye thanks to a fetching white finish. Connectivity is functional. That's to say, you get solitary examples of the key HDMI, component and VGA PC inputs

    Optoma EP770 review

    8  

    Optoma is an increasingly popular brand, both with business and schools, as it offers a wide range of affordable DLP machines. The Optoma EP770 is a replacement for the older EP739 and is aimed at meeting rooms and classrooms

    Optoma ThemeScene HD73 review

    Not all DLP systems are created equally, as their creator, Texas Instruments, is forever tinkering with its technology and coming up with improved chipsets. So it's no shock that projectors vary according to their generation and specification

    ViewSonic PJ502 review

    7  

    Usually, an 800x600 LCD projector will have a visible grid, but this one is different. By using a 0.7-inch LCD panel, ViewSonic has greatly reduced the chicken-wire effect to give a far more pleasing final image

    Toshiba TDP-MT200 review

    7  

    Part of Toshiba's home projector range, the TDPMT200 is specifically designed to be a movie projector. This largely comes from the use of the widescreen DLP technology, which is perfect for showing films

    Optoma H27 review

    8  

    Apparently, not all DLPs are built the same. On paper, the H27 seems almost identical to others. But the proof of the pudding is in the eating and we certainly enjoyed gorging on this tasty projector

    InFocus X3 review

    The X range from InFocus is the potato of the projector world: it mightnot be the most exciting thing on the market but it isn't half versatile. The X3 is the latest in this range

    Hitachi PJTX100 review

    If this projector doesn't make you sit up and pay attention, nothing will. Obviously crafted to be a home projector from the ground up, its enormous 1.6x zoom lens is its most striking visual feature

    Many similar projectors are pretty much dedicated film projectors that happen to be able to handle computer inputs, but this one is a dedicated presentation projector that can handle films, if you want it to

    We almost dropped this projector in shock when we saw the price. It's rare to find a projector for less than £500 and even rarer to find one this cheap that performs decently

    Sharp XR-1S review

    6  

    Sharp describes its XR-1S as a 'Pico Portable' projector, which overstates the case as it is small without being tiny. The styling is very slick; however, the focus and zoom controls are tightly tucked in and we found them tricky to operate...

    Acer PH730 review

    To date, affordable HD Ready DLP projectors have been few and far between. But now we're starting to see one or two models breaking the critical, LCD-rivalling £1,500 price barrier.

    Sony VPL-CX61 review

    8  

    Sony is perhaps better known for its range of consumer projectors, but increasingly it is bringing the same design aesthetic to its business range. The VPL-CX61 isn't so much a mobile unit as an office choice, largely due to its 3.7kg weight.

    BenQ CP220 review

    8  

    BenQ has steadily been expanding its portable data projector line of late and while the 1.8kg weight of the CP220 (£680 inc. VAT) isn't exactly ultraportable, it's a compact and tidy box that comes with its own carry case

    Sony VPL-HS60 review

    7  

    At it's rather high price point, Sony's VPL-HS60 has several points to prove: is it really better than its cheaper LCD rivals, and is it at least as good as the same-price InFocus IN76? The HS60 isn't particularly attractive

    Optoma H27 review

    Here is another entry-level projector,based apparently on a low-cost highly portable business chassis, and not dissimilar in concept to the BenQ PE5120.It has a comparable resolving power from a Texas Instruments DC2 ...

    BenQ PE5120 review

    The ultra compact, lightweight BenQ PE5120 is a true widescreen (16:9) projector and uses the WVGA (854 x 480) standard DLP processor, which is a fairly basic chip of its type, though at least you're not throwing part of its resolving power away ...

    InFocus'recent decision to slice around a third off the price of its hugely acclaimed Screenplay 7205 is one of the most aggressive cuts we've seen in a long time.But does it instantly make the 7205 the bargain of the year...

    Sharp's latest video projector combines the best of compact DLP portables with more heavyweight home cinema items. It keeps the image contrast that comes with the DLP format but includes high brightness modes

    InFocus ScreenPlay 4805 review

    InFocus' new three-chip DLP ScreenPlay 777 is aimed at semi-pro users and will set you back a cool £20,000. But read on, for the company has poured a number of the 777's luxury features into a more reasonably priced alternative - the 4805
