Excellent overall color, and skin tones
The bottom line is, especially with 3D capabilities, the overall brightness does eliminate a lot of folks who otherwise might love this little Mitsubishi projector to death. Lastly, don't forget, the HC7800D comes with a 3 year parts and labor warranty. In the grand scheme of things, that's one of the longer and better warranties out there. Nothing like a little piece of mind!
Projector has an auto iris to improve black level and contrast ratio
In some respects, the HC7800D is a more intriguing 3D option than Mitsubishi's previous HC9000D. It's less expensive, it has a higher brightness rating (which is important for 3D), and it includes the 3D emitter in the package. This projector can't quite compete with similarly priced LCD models in the spec department, but it should give DLP fans a reason to be excited, as it strikes an excellent balance between price and features in the DLP realm.
Excellent CFI for smooth motion on movies
If the budget fits and you are into 3D, the Mitsubishi HC9000D will make an excellent overall choice. I believe in two to three more years, today's 3D projector owners will be wanting the improvements yet to come and will be ready to upgrade. If that sounds reasonable to you, start looking for an installing dealer. This one is easy to live with.
Mitsubishi's HC9000D has all of the hallmarks of a great home theater projector: high contrast, impeccable color, and the versatility to adapt to almost any theater environment and thrive there. The fact that it is a 3D projector just adds to the allure. The HC9000D is as future-proof as projectors are likely to get in the near future, and is capable of doing justice to any and all content you want to watch. We are pleased to give it our highest recommendation.
Dual HDMI inputs, as well as a 12-volt trigger and an RS-232 port.
The field of 3D projectors has gotten a lot more crowded since Mitsubishi first introduced the HC9000D, and this projector faces some stiff competition from lower-priced models from JVC, Sony, Optoma, Epson, Panasonic, and Mitsubishi itself. The JVC DLA-X3 immediately comes to mind as a similarly featured D-ILA projector that comes in at a lower price point.
3D performance is very good
Overall, the Mitsubishi delivers very good performance, although the color gamut accuracy isnâ?? t very good (green and yellow are way beyond the limits of the HDTV color gamut standard). The 230W lampâ?? s output should be sufficient for most home theater setups, and the quality of the optics is excellent. While the 3D performance is very good indeed, thereâ?? s no 2D-to-3D upconversion function, an omission that might be of concern to hard-core 3D fans who want to watch everything in 3D.
