Good brightness and color rendition in a compact package
The NEC M311X has a lot going for it and its price point should be very attractive to the buyer looking for a low maintenance, high output projector in a compact package. For price and performance, it compares well with other LCD projectors in its class, while offering more features than many of them. However, the Viewsonic PJD6544w (big brother to the recently reviewed Viewsonic PJD5533w) offers WXGA resolution and similar brightness and features at lower price.
Cheap-o choice, Below SD quality video
Of course, for the price it's probably acceptable to some people, but I'd say that if you're spending this much (one hundred bucks at the time of this writing) then you might as well save your pennies and get something that AT LEAST handles standard definition.
Good color rendition and readability with native resolution or higher
The Samsung SP-F10M has a lot going for it. It is solidly constructed, exuding a feeling of quality. The LED light source will never need replacing for the typical life of the projector and there are no dust filters, so maintenance costs should be minimal. Setup is quite simple and there are a number of picture adjustments not often found on projectors in this class.
Produces data LCD-like performance levels for only a small cost premium
While itâ??s hard to rave about the F10M, itâ??s also pretty hard to seriously fault it. For basically, aside from some rather hit and miss colour tones, it produces data LCD-like performance levels for only a small cost premium while delivering all the usual LED benefits - including, most notably, that â??one bulb for lifeâ?? boast. All of which means itâ??s surely only a matter of time before we start to see LED lighting having a go at the affordable home cinema market too.
Low power consumption
The addition of this file support makes the Samsung SP-F10M a choice for those who need a projector that does a little more than just display what you have on your PC. It means you don't have to be a slave to your computer for presentations, you can preload the information or use a USB drive instead. This makes it a solid choice for group events where different people need to use it, perhaps presenting group work, or conference centres.
great overall image quality and sharpness
The Hitachi CP-DW10N is projector that offers a great value proposition by combining short throw capability, Hitachi's template function, a variety of network command and control functions and great overall image quality and sharpness, with a low street price. While the CP-DW10N's video performance was not overly impressive, it is good enough for non-critical viewing environments.
already very good performer
One of a couple of great choices out there. For those needing a bright projector for sometimes dealing with ambient light, and for working with a mix of source material, it's a first class choice. The Home Cinema 8100 however, is limited a bit in brightness in its "best" mode, so for those who don't want to compromise picture, the Epson is limited a bit in screen size. For movie viewing in "best" mode, I would not normally recommend going larger than a 110 inch diagonal screen.
impressive 4,000 hour lamp life
Simply, I'm thrilled with this projector as are all my family members, my friends and neighbors. I'm told we are now that house that people want to hang out for the theater alone. I believe the Epson highlighted a shortcoming in my room as it became apparent that the flat white ceiling was actually causing some concern for contrast, or at least the perception of contrast.
