Data images aren't quite on the mark
When you use projectors in classrooms, you want ruggedness and reliability with minimum maintenance. You also want to set up and go with no delays for image adjustment. That is exactly what you get with the PLC-XK2600, and the added bonus is excellent data and video performance. You can find XGA projectors for less money, but you will have a hard time matching the PLC-XK2600's knockout images and low cost of ownership.
All-rounder with sufficient brightness
The Sanyo PLC-XK2600 is a decent general-purpose projector. It doesn't have any killer features and doesn't excel in any single area. Nor is it especially portable. Nonetheless, the £450 price tag is modest, and if you want an all-rounder with sufficient brightness to let it work in light rooms, the PLC-XK2600 is a safe buy.
Produces a bright, beautiful 1080p picture
The Panasonic PT-AR100U is a strong multi-purpose projector that's ideal for the ambient light of a typical living room. Following in the tradition of the AX100 and AX200 models from several years ago, the AR100U makes some improvements to the Light Harmonizer feature that sets these projectors apart from other home entertainment models.
Able to handle fair amount of ambient light
The InFocus IN2114 XGA projector is a native 4:3 aspect ratio business projector. It is virtually indentical to the InFocus IN2116 except for the fact that IN2116 has an aspect ration of 16:10 with a native resolution of 1280x800. Because the two are exactly alike except for their resolutions.
As well as succeeding where its predecessor did not in justifying its price hike over Sony's latest entry-level SXRD model, the VW85 sets a really high new standard for the Â£5,000 sector of the projector market. Will JVC's new D-ILA models manage to be even better? Well, sadly I just don't know right now. But man, it's going to be fun finding out.
Black levels really do look impressively deep
As with the Z3000 with which it shares, well, pretty much everything, the Z4000 is capable of being a very accomplished projector for its money. Itâ??s just a shame it needs arguably professional levels of calibration before youâ??ll get anything like the best out of it.
