  1. JVC DLA-HX2 review

    8  

    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

    Sim2 HT300E review

    10  

    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...

    Mitsubishi EX100U review

    8  

    The brochure tells the story in a lurid red headline: 'perfect for business, schools and even home entertainment'. Yes, this is another model that takes advantages of the economies of scale to launch a projector at a bargain price

    Projection Design Action! Model One Mk III review

    Ah, Norway. Home of fjords, picturesque mountain ranges, Winter Olympians, moose and, if Norwegian outfit ProjectionDesign is to be believed, home cinema projectors.

    InFocus Screenplay 7210 review

    9  

    There have been three identical looking projectors based on the same chassis in the ScreenPlay 7200 range, which have been launched with different iterations of the Texas Instruments (TI) 1280 x 720 XGA chipset.

    Sagem HD-D56B review

    10  

    Rear projection's ball is well and truly rolling again thanks in part to French telly trendsetter, Sagem. The HD-ready DLP HD-D56B hails from the same line as the HD-D45S, and measures a monumental 56in.

    Viewsonic PJ755D review

    8  

    At first sight the 2700 ANSI Lumens light output seems unfeasibly high for DLP. The explanation appears to be that the basic engine is a dual purpose one also meant to fulfil an office-centric brief as well as a cinema one

    Toshiba TDP-S25 review

    There is no doubting the provenance of this model, which proclaims 'data projector' in large type on the cover of the instruction manual. Indeed, the Toshiba is available in an alternative version, the TDP-SC25...

    It was at the tail end of 2003 when Home Cinema Choice evaluated the first commercial projector to use JVC's D-ILA (Direct Drive Image Light Amplifier) technology. A souped up version of LCOS (liquid crystal on silicon) technology...

    Optoma ThemeScene H78 review

    10  

    In the game of projector specification trumps, Optoma's DLP-based H78 is an ace card. A whopping 3,800:1 contrast ratio, a near silent 23dB operation noise and full HD-readiness go a long way to explain the sky-high price tag

    Toshiba TDP-MT700 review

    As the only truly 'HD Ready' projector in this group test, Toshiba's new MT700 gets a healthy head start over its rivals. But can it hold on to its lead to the finish?DescriptionIn spite of its essentially fat and plain rectangular shape, the MT700...

    Sagem MDP 2000-X review

    Sagem has proved it can do very nicely with a projector inside a rearprojection TV. But can it translate this to the front projection world?DescriptionThe 2000-X is the blandest projector in this group. Its shape bears all the ...

    Optoma Themescene H30A review

    The original ThemeScene H30 was a real budget superstar - and now it's back, revamped and reinvigorated, and bearing an extra 'A' (for Advanced!) on its chest to prove it.

    Infocus Screenplay 5700 review

    8  

    HCC reviewed - and was very impressed by - the InFocus Screenplay 5700, back in spring 2004. But after a couple of recent price cuts, it's now pitched against a whole new army of cheaper competitors that can surely only enhance its appeal.

    HP EP7112 review

    Can Hewlett Packard become the latest in a growing line of traditional PC brands to conquer the home cinema projection world?DescriptionLove it or loathe it, you certainly can't accuse the ep7112 of looking bland.

    Toshiba 52WM48 review

    If you're not already considering a DLP for your next big-screen purchase, you should be. HCC has auditioned a number of models recently which have seriously impressed with both their picture quality and value.

    Sagem HD-D45S review

    10  

    Rear-projection TVs are back in a big way. The promise of high definition and rear-pro's, especially DLP's, innate suitability for it at bargain bigscreen prices has caused AV fans to re-embrace the idea

    Sagem Axium HD-D56B review

    10  

    After striking gold with its first two DLP TVs - and pinching a big chunk of the UK DLP market in the process - Sagem's now out to show how far its ambitions stretch with its biggest screen yet: the 56in HD-D56B.

    Thomson Profiles Scenium 50DSZ644 review

    Rear projection technology is enjoying something of a renaissance. Once a cheap, rather unimpressive big screen alternative to the likes of plasma and LCD, it has now blossomed into a genuine option for those seeking the best quality pictures

    Panasonic PTLM2E review

    6  

    LCD projectors just keep getting smaller, lighter and cheaper, but can they cut it for true home cinema appeal? Panasonic's new baby has a damn good try. Panasonic's entry-level projector offers a video image up to 300in

    HP's Instant Cinema ep9012 is a beast. It looks like a giant turtle with an Apple-esque makeover and weighs so much you wouldn't risk putting it on the ceiling even if you could

    Yamaha LPX-510 review

    In recent times, LCD home-cinema projectors have lagged behind those of the DLP variety. OK - both have their disadvantages; the 'rainbow effect' introduced by the colour wheel in the case of DLP, and the 'chicken wire'...
