  1. Epson EMP-TW500 review

    8  

    The dramatic upsurge in the popularity of home cinema projectors has opened the door for many traditionally business-only brands to have a crack at the living room market.

    Vidikron Model 40 review

    7  

    Up to now, US outfit Vidikron hasn't really made a major splash in the UK. But that could all be about to change. How come? Because Vidikron is now actually owned by Runco, another US outfit that already has made waves in the UK...

    Toshiba TDP-MT500 review

    8  

    Toshiba's latest is a true home cinema projector: a DLP design using the Texas Instruments 1,024 x 576 pixel optical chip. The MT500 is lightweight, but there's no carrying handle or internal speaker.

    Toshiba MT8 review

    8  

    We've been mightily impressed by some of Toshiba's supposedly lower-ranking projectors - so we come to the company's flagship MT8 model with hopes raised high.The Mt8 looks quite plush in some ways

    Sim2 HT300 Link review

    10  

    The HT300 Link is the latest state of the art DLP projector from SIM2 which consists of two main components. One is the projector itself, which is packaged in the same attractive and not at all box-like sculptural moulding used with other SIM2 models...

    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

    10  

    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'?

    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

    InFocus Screenplay 7205 review

    InFocus Screenplay 7205 review

    8  

    InFocus' recent decision to slice around a third off the price of its hugely acclaimed Screenplay 7205 is one of the most aggressive cuts we've seen in a long time.

    Philips 28PW6518 review

    10  

    The raison d'être behind Philips' latest TV is to offer 28in pictures from a big-name brand for as little hard cash as possible. A laudable aim, providing not too many corners have been cut to meet the price.

    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...
