  1. Viewsonic PJ458D review

    6  

    Projector performance dips rapidly at lower prices,and worthwhile designs are few and far between.One way through this is to look at data projectors,which are designed primarily for office use, as many also aim to accommodate home cinema requirements

    Sony VPL-VW100 review

    10  

    Almost exactly two years ago during a trip to Japan I had my world rocked by a Sony variation of LCOS (liquid crystal on silicon). Dubbed SXRD, the system - built into the Qualia 004 projector - delivered simply astonishing results.

    LG AN110W review

    10  

    Here is the first flat on-wall projector that includes a wide screen (16:9) aspect ratio.There are few projectors that are purpose designed to be used on the wall behind the audience,or with a lens throw ratio

    Acer PH112 review

    6  

    Although it's one of the biggest brands in the computer world, Acer's home cinema efforts have, up to now,been few and far between.But its new PH112 projector is every inch a home cinema product

    Sagem Axium HD-D50H review

    I still don't quite understand exactly how French company Sagem went from making faxes and phones to delivering a string of best-buy DLP TVs. But the fact remains that it did.

    Mitsubishi HC3000 review

    The arrival of high-definition in the UK has seemingly caught DLP technology on the hop - and in doing so opened a window of opportunity for its LCD rival. The problem for DLP is that Texas Instruments has only relatively recently developed...

    Sagem HD-D45H G4 T review

    10  

    Sagem's previous DLP rear-pro range set new standards for both performance and value - so we can only hope that the same will prove true of the company's brand new, up-specified HD-D45H G4 T

    Epson EMP-TW20 review

    8  

    For £699, you'd normally only get a cheap and cheerful LCD projector aimed at the PC/- presentations market. Yet this is all you pay for the EMP-TW20,a projector from Epson's Dreamio range that's designed to be home cinema's friend.

    Toshiba MT-400 review

    8  

    This neat and lightweight projector is a new entrant in the low cost DLP stakes. Although not quite the cheapest of its kind around, it is available quite deeply discounted from its nominal price

    Sim2 C3X Lite review

    10  

    As a technology, DLP has much going for it in performance terms - particularly as far as greyscale and black level are concerned. But conventional singlechip DLP projectors can't match arch-rival LCD for colour reproduction

    Panasonic PT-AE900E review

    8  

    This new model is based on the now familiar PT-AE700E,but with enhancements. Under the bonnet, the PT-AE900E has the same 1,280 x 720 LCD optical engine,but contrast ratio has been boosted from 2,000:1 to a very impressive 5,500:1

    Panasonic PT-AE900 review

    8  

    The PT-AE700 LCD projector was a hard act to follow; in many ways it was an instant projector classic. Perhaps that's why it's been in Panasonic's range so long - but the brand has indeed replaced it, with the highly anticipated PT-AE900

    Hitachi Cine Master PJ-TX200 review

    Until now, Hitachi has seemingly concentrated on making accessible LCD projectors for those users wanting a one-stop solution for all their video, games console and PC needs

    Sanyo PLV-Z4 review

    8  

    It's the cheapest LCD model in what is destined to be a new budget class of HD Ready home cinema projectors (joined by Hitachi's Cine Master PJ-TX200 and the Panasonic PT-AE900).

    HP VP6321 review

    7  

    A key IT player, Hewlett-Packard has been ramping up its presence in the projector market in a major way. HP customers are more likely to be showing PowerPoints than Harry Potter movies, so data projectors have always been their first concern

    Hitachi Illumina PJ-TX200 review

    9  

    With DLP technology usually stealing the projection limelight, rival LCD is often seen as something of a 'poor relation'. But LCD's supporters reckon that movie fans write LCD off at their peril. Now Hitachi, is putting its money where its mouth is

    Epson EMP-TWD1 review

    6  

    Of all the available video display technologies,there is a general perception that projectors are the trickiest of them all.They need a screen,which generally is bolted to a wall or ceiling,much to the chagrin of Mrs projector owner

    Optoma Movietime DV10 review

    6  

    The premise behind this unusual product, according to Optoma, is that projectors generally have an image of being too complicated and fussy about setup to appeal to first time users.The DV10 addresses this in various ways...

    BenQ PE7700 review

    8  

    Until recently, an HD Ready DLP video projector would set you back over a couple of grand, and it would probably have come in the shape of Toshiba's impressive TDP-MT700. But that's about to change dramatically thanks to BenQ

    Samsung SP46L6HX review

    Probably the DLP world's first genuine classic rear projection TV was Samsung's SP50L7HX - a stunning set I fell in love with when I reviewed it back in HCC 112. So you can imagine that my hopes are very high indeed for Samsung's...

    Once upon a time, rear projection televisions looked destined for the big home cinema in the sky. The prospect of high-definition discs and broadcasts has put them right back in the reckoning of late though

    Time and time again DLP's dominance of the quality home cinema projection world has led many to relegate LCD technology to budget alternative. And time and time again LCD supporters like Sony, Panasonic and Sanyo ...

    JVC DLA-HX2 review

    The world of projectors is divided into two types: DLP and LCD, with protagonists of both schools slugging it out. But there is a third option - D-ILA, invented by JVC. It uses the output of three LCD-like panels

    So what advantages can we hope to see from DarkChip3? First, it hints at another move forward in colour and contrast, thanks to smaller mirror hinges on the DMD device and a new light absorbent coating so we should hopefully also see...
