  1. Sim2 Domino 20H review

    8  

    As the proud owner of arguably the most varied and fully realised projector range available in the UK, Sim2 clearly isn't short of confidence. And this confidence certainly doesn't seem misplaced

    Sharp XV-Z91E review

    9  

    Over recent months we've seen circular projectors, square projectors and rectangular projectors... so, in the interest of geometrical fairness, we thought we'd best take a look at a triangular projector. Cue Sharp's XV-Z91E.

    Sharp XV-Z201 review

    8  

    Sharp's XV-Z201 appears to have a tough job on its hands. As a DLP model costing £2,700, it's not high-end, yet it has to convince us that it's worth the fairly considerable hike up from the latest ultra-budget blockbusters

    Sharp XV-Z200E/201E review

    8  

    No, we haven't just lumped two projectors into one review to save space. The simple fact is that there's just not enough difference between the Z200E and Z201E to justify treating them separately

    Runco CL-510 review

    9  

    If you have any familiarity with the world of video projection, you're sure to know about Runco. The company became a home theatre legend with its CRT projectors, once the mainstay of big-screen entertainment.

    NEC HT1100 review

    8  

    DLP projectors now range from £1,000 entry level types to ultra high-end £25,000 pro-quality models. At the luxury end the price goes towards three-chip versions for an image quality to rival or even beat cinema projectors

    Mitsubushi HC900E review

    8  

    While it only has one chip and looks functional rather than sumptuous, Mitsubishi's cheaper brother to the company's flagship HC2000 pulls a few pleasant surprises

    Mitsubishi HC900 review

    7  

    If you're going to cost a cool £400 more than your nearest rival, you'd better come to the party packing some heat. And on paper at least, that's exactly what Mitsubishi's HC900E does.Let's look at the evidence

    Mitsubishi HC100 review

    10  

    If you haven't already done so, we suggest that you do a double take at the price above the Mitsubishi HC100 headline. Done it? Good. Then you'll know already what makes the HC100 such an exciting bit of kit

    Marantz VP-12S3 review

    10  

    Given how chaotic the everchanging world of AV is these days, there's something strangely comforting about Marantz's VP-12 projectors. Updated versions trot along every few months, all looking identical, all boasting the very...

    BenQ PE8700 review

    8  

    Surprisingly often, the weight of home cinema kit is directly proportional to how good it is. Essentially, the heavier it is, the better it is. Which bodes well for BenQ's PE8700 - it weighs an absolute ton

    Barco Cineversum review

    10  

    In a market where Johnny-come-latelies are on the increase, Barco is starting to look like the older statesman of the projector world. Should we take this to mean that it's 'past its sell-by date', or a 'timeless symbol of quality'?

    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

    8  

    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...

    Sim2 Grand Cinema HT300 Evolution review

    10  

    Sim2's latest Grand Cinema model boasts a stylish design and brand new technology. It's the first to use Texas Instruments' DarkChip3 system to improve DLP greyscale quality and boost contrast to 3,800:1

    Sanyo PLV-Z3 review

    9  

    The LCD projection camp owes much to Sanyo's LCD-based PLV-Z range. The PLV-Z1 and its PLV-Z2 successor both appeared just in time to stop us declaring LCD nothing more than DLP's poor relation...

    Sanyo PLV-Z3 review

    9  

    Not for the first time in home cinema projection, DLP has its hammer poised to drive that final nail into LCD's coffin. But Sanyo isn't about to let that hammer come down without the sort of frantic scrap even the titular hero of our The Bourne Identity...

    NEC VT470 review

    5  

    NEC's VT470 harks back to a time when the only way you could get a truly affordable projector was to get a multimedia model designed more with the boardroom in mind than the latest Hollywood blockbuster.

    Epson EMP-TW10 review

    8  

    Epson's LCD-based EMP-TW10 was one of the first sub-£1,000 projectors to tempt UK enthusiasts, but it's beginning to get a little long in the tooth now. So while it originally impressed...

    Toshiba MT200 review

    8  

    Surprising though it may seem, the MT200 isn't Toshiba's first foray under £1,000 with a projector. The TLP-ET1 claimed that distinction nearly a year ago. However, the ET1 used LCD technology...

    Toshiba 46WM48P review

    10  

    Once the exclusive domain of high-end brands like Sim 2 and Loewe, DLP rear-pro sets are now hitting the mainstream, with a range of different brands suddenly launching a glut of them, the latest of which is long-time CRT rear-projection king, Toshiba.

    Sharp XV-Z12000 review

    10  

    Replacing the visually similar XV-Z10000, the XV-Z12000 offers improved performance for £1,000 less and represents Sharp's most focussed attack yet on the high-end projector ramparts. Being a DLP projector...

    Optoma ThemeScene H30A review

    10  

    Few projectors have caused quite such a stir as Optoma's ThemeScene H30. It practically rewrote the rule book on what sort of quality we could expect to find on a budget product.
