    BenQ MP721c review

    6  

    Unlike many others in the peripherals field, BenQ takes its budget products as seriously as its high-end ones, with individual technologies filtering through its ranges based on need rather than money-saving

    Now that we have easy access to full HD 1080p video in the form of Blu-ray and HD DVD discs, it's natural to want something well specified and affordable to play them through

    BrilliantColor is not something PD has cobbled together over a weekend. In fact, the company claims to have developed it hand-in-hand with thecreator of DLP technology, Texas Instruments

    While Viewsonic's earlier 'made for iPod' LCD monitor failed to live up to its claims, there's no need to doubt the company's latest iPod-accessorised projector. Popping it into the provided zip case, you can carry it around in a shoulder bag

    Planar PD7060 review

    10  

    Only recently we exclusively reviewed Planar's first UK home cinema projector, the PD7010 - and concluded that we were 'licking our lips inanticipation of what else the new brand might have up its sleeve'

    Sony KDS-70R2000 review

    9  

    Rear projection is dead, apparently, murdered by its flat rivals LCD and plasma. But if this is really the case, then the 70R2000 is one hell of a zombie. For not only is Sony's latest TV resolutely rear-projecting, but it's also a massive 70-inch model

    These days it's just not enough to be HD Ready. If you now want to appeal to the AV cognoscenti, you need to be Full HD, with a native pixel count of 1920 x 1080. Cue Panasonic's PT-AE1000, the manufacturer's very first full HD projector

    As LCD and plasma flat screens advance in leaps and bounds, video projectors progress in tandem. High-definition has become the new measuring point for picture quality, and it now takes something a bit special to stand out from the pack.

    Welcome to the future. The first Direct Drive Image Light Amplification (DILA) projector made specifically for the home, the DLA-HD1 from JVC, has hit the UK - and we're thrilled to report that it's a veritable revolution

    Sadly, we're not all lucky enough to have rooms big enough to accommodate a projector. Or are we? For thanks to Norwegian projector specialist Projection Design, you can now buy the Action! Model Two Wide with its short-throw 1:1 lens

    Sony KDS-70R2000 review

    10  

    It's not often that we look at rear-projection TVs, but we couldn't resist this giant 70in screen. Size aside, the 70R2000 is far from ugly. Connections include two HDMIs, two component video inputs, a PC input, a CI slot and a digital audio output

    With profit margins tumbling, it's a brave company that's willing to risk entering the UK's home cinema market right now. Yet that's precisely what US outfit Planar is doing - and the PD7010 is a stunning statement of intent

    There's a revolution taking place in the home cinema projection world. The dominance of LCD and DLP technology is being challenged by two new kids on the block: SXRD from Sony, and now DILA from JVC

    While LCD technology has done great business at the lower end of the projection market, examples of high-end LCD offerings have been few and far between. Yet that's precisely what we have on our test bench

    Toshiba TDP-ET20 review

    Most projectors need to be a long way from the screen to deliver massive pictures, but not this DLP model from Toshiba. It uses an ultra short-focus lens to generate a 2.5m (100in) image when placed just 1.3m from the screen

    Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution and 1080p native support are the latest 'big things' in the upmarket projector world, and this hasn't gone unnoticed by the Italian display specialist SIM2

    Optoma EP772 review

    You've seen us gushing almost uncontrollably about Sony's value-packed effort. Sadly, we can't do quite the same for this box from Optoma, despite its obvious power. And it's all because of a sheer visual comparison

    InFocus IN78 review

    10  

    The IN78 is strikingly attractive in a high gloss black-base finish wrapped around a curvaceous body. The design's highly practical too, as the main body is set atop a tilting, rotating foot mount that should prove helpful during set up

    Master of the data projector, Epson's attack on the home cinema market continues apace. This isn't the brand's flagship model - but it is a versatile and reasonably affordable 3LCD option that, on paper at least, looks worth considering...

    JVC DLA-HD1 review

    Although we hate to start with a cliché, there really has never been a more exciting time to buy a projector. For what used to be essentially a head-to-head contest between the rival DLP and LCD technologies has now become a four-horse race

    Sony VPL-VW50 review

    8  

    Two technologies have dominated the projector market in recent years: LCD and DLP, but there's a further pretender to the throne - Sony's SXRD technology. Thus far, the market hasn't been too affected due to the high-end nature of Sony's alternative.

    The Z5 doesn't look very special, to be honest. It's a chunky affair with nothing significant in its sculpting or finish to make it stand out.It certainly does stand out when it comes to connections, though

    With its experience in LCD technology, the PLV-Z5 commands our attention as Sanyo's most affordable HD model. For around £1,650, it boasts some impressive premium features, especially in the socket drawer
