A strong product that is sure to inspire generations of projectors to come
As a standard projector, the WD390U is fully-featured and well-made, putting plenty of light onto the screen and making presentations look vibrant and high in contrast. But it's the projector's network features that make it really shine, and it is people searching for a networked projection solution who should really sit up and take notice.
Excellent Picture Quality - Network Setup Complicated
The picture quality is excellent. I like the "short throw" image of this projector. However, even with an experienced, corporate level IT person, the networking is a glitchy, complicated process set up. The projector is set up on our network, hardwired using a LAN cable, with it's own IP address. I can see it and connect to it over the LAN from my desktop computer, which is on the same network. I can control it and project from my desktop.
Excellent overall color, and especially skin tones
Overall, a very impressive projector. It's not the right one for my room, and my tastes (which include lots of sports with intentional ambient light present), but it might be a great projector for you, especially if movies are really your "focus".
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.
Tops the charts in terms of most specs
Mitsubishi bills the EX240U as an education projector. The Mitsubishi EX240U tops the charts in terms of most specs - and rightly so, given that it costs over Â£200 more than the cheapest projectors we've tested. That said, the features and mobility offered by the EX240U give more expensive and bigger projectors a run for their money so, if your budget can take it, this might be the solution for you.
Excellent picture quality
The EX240U is a more traditional projector in terms of both price and size; Mitsubishi bills it as an education projector. Itâ?? s at the top end of the spectrum in this test and serves as an example of what a little extra money will get you in terms of features. To say the EX240U isnâ?? t portable is doing it a disservice, though. Itâ?? s not a â?? throw it in a bagâ?? projector like some of the pico models on offer, but itâ??
Excellent data performance
When you need WUXGA performance on a budget, the Mitsubishi UD8350U is an excellent choice. It gives you high light output, a great suite of eco-friendly features, low ongoing maintenance costs, and a friendly price tag, making it a very cost-effective alternative. While rainbow effects may limit its usefulness for video, it's hard to beat this combination of price and performance when it comes to data, graphics, and photography.
