    Panasonic PT-AX200E review

    10  

    Panasonic more than most has set its crosshairs on the HD gamer, and with the LCD-driven AX200E it has made a model fit for the job.

    Sanyo PLV-Z2000 review

    When it comes to display technology wars there's a heck of a lot more going on aside from just plasma and LCD. Enter the world of projectors and there's no shortage of acronyms squabbling for your attention.

    Optoma HD65 review

    8  

    Optoma never stops surprising with its low-cost high-definition projectors. The noteworthy HD81 with its 1080p DLP chipset recently wowed bargain hunters, and now it's set a new price point for big-screen HD with the tiny HD65.

    BenQ W500 review

    The W500 is one of the dinkiest LCD projectors currently available, yet it packs in everything you'll need for HD movies and gaming plus a few extra features on top.

    InFocus IN82 review

    8  

    The rapid shift to affordable Full HD projectors, typified by a battalion of affordable LCD models, has clearly put pressure on the traditional mid-range PJ market, which is the accepted stomping ground for upscaling DLP models.

    Epson EMP-TW680 review

    An often messy and expensive business, home cinema projection has been an enthusiasts-only zone in the UK until now. That could be about to change with the arrival of products such as Epson’s TW680.

    InFocus IN81 review

    10  

    After leaving the affordable full HD projection market to LCD for far too long, a new breed of affordable DLP projector is finally starting to appear. And HD DLP has now come of age with the arrival of InFocus' first 1920 x 1080 DLP model, the £2,500 IN81

    DLP is making up for lost time. Chip supplier Texas Instruments has apparently decided that it has let its LCD rivals have more than enough time grooming the entry-level 1080p market, and has slashed the price of its own comparable chipsets

    Sim2 Domino D10 review

    Whatever else Italian projector company Sim2 may be, it's certainly not cheap. To date its ethos has been to deliver the best results possible at any price.So we approached the Domino D10 with mixed feelings

    Optoma Themescene HD80 review

    8  

    The appeal of this projector is simple: it gives you full HD resolution from DLP technology at a remarkably low price. Indeed, its £2,000 tag equates it with full HD LCD-based projectors - a competitive market that DLP has traditionally struggled to reach.

    Epson EMP-TW1000 review

    Most people are likely to associate the Epson brand with printers and scanners, rather than home cinema gear. Yet, and this may come as a surprise, the company is actually the bone fide world number one in projectors: supply and manufacture

    EIKI EIP-1600T review

    8  

    Two thoughts are possibly going through your mind as you look at this mid-priced DLP projector from Eiki. The first is probably, 'Who the heck is Eiki?', and the second might be, 'Haven't I seen this PJ somewhere before?'

    Sim2 Domino 10 review

    9  

    Having spent years building a formidable reputation at the high end of the projector market place, Sim2 now feels confident enough to try and break the sub-£2,000 scene with the Domino 10 (D10) - a relative snip at £1,600

    SIM2 HT3000E review

    10  

    We previously tested and adored SIM2's HT3000 Full HD DLP projector. But SIM2 apparently thought there was still room for improvement. Sat before us today is the HT3000E, where the extra E signifies a really pretty major upgrade of the original model

    Planar PD7060 review

    9  

    Given America's deep-seated love of all things cinematic and televisual, it's surprising that more US AV brands don't have a strong foothold in the UK market. But the bottom line is that few of them seem to know how to make mainstream UK cinephiles tick.

    Most projectors are now HD-ready, but owning something superior to what your neighbours have is a strong human instinct, so there's now Full HD for those who favour Club class quality over Economy

    Optoma HD80 review

    Video projectors have been evolving faster than the X-Men in recent years, with each generation boasting a whole new level of resolution. For a decade 576 horizontal lines was plenty, but then along came hi-def with 720 progressive lines.

    DreamVision Dream Bee review

    When this projector first surfaced at the Consumer Electronics Show we were predictably wowed by its futuristic design. But I'm never one to judge a book by its cover: funky aesthetics aside, does DreamVision's Dream Bee have what it takes to stand apart?

    Mitsubishi HC5000 review

    While Mitsubishi is a diminished force in the UK consumer electronics field, it continues to surge in the world of projectors. And rather than offer a token home cinema PJ, it's pushing the envelope of affordable cinephile projectors

    Joining Planar's debut PD7060 is this £600-cheaper model. The only difference is the PD7060 has a contrast ratio of 3500:1 compared with 2500:1 here. Planar hails from the US, but there's a distinctly European feel to its curvy, black and silver design

    Viewsonic PJ258D iPod Projector review: This is the way to roll. I'm playing PES6 at a crisp resolution on my wall. OK, so it's one of those woodchip-finish wallpapers, but that hardly matters when it's this bright and beautiful

    Planar PD7060 review

    The smartly-attired PD7060 from Planar is special for two reasons. It only costs £1,900, and it sports a Texas Instruments Dark Chip 3 (DC3) DLP chipset that's usually found on projectors costing nearly twice as much

    Marantz VP11 S1 review

    Most video projectors these days can boast an HD Ready badge, but the high-end Full HD club is currently much more exclusive, and to get in, you have to pay - hence the rather dizzying price of the VP11 S1

    It would be hard to pass this off as an ordinary TV. You could stand a giant next to it and pretend it's a 37-incher but giants don't exist and if they did few of them would have £4,000 to spend on a 70in TV

    ProjectionDesign Action! M20 review

    9  

    We're so spoiled these days that we expect a projector costing £3,500 to feature a 1080p resolution and a contrast ratio in the tens of thousands, rather than the 1280 x 720 native pixels and 4000:1 claimed by the ProjectionDesign Action! M20
