Accurate color out of the box
The Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 750HD is an interesting proposition. While some users will be quick to write it off as a low-resolution alternative to the entry-level 1080p projectors in the marketplace, it distinguishes itself in several ways. It offers the best color available at its price point, it has full 3D capability, and it has more light output than either of its main competitors. This makes it a force to be reckoned with in the living room.
Very good color, out of the box, great color post calibration
The Optoma HD23 comes across as a solid, well built, entry level home entertainment projector. We really like it, especially the great color. The result of our appreciation is demonstrated by awarded Optoma's HD23 with a Special Interest award. We would have liked to see better black performance, even at this price point, but that is our only noteworthy complaint in terms of performance Even without better blacks, though, we consider the HD23 very worthy.
If you look for smooth BluRay 1080p24 picture mode, look further
This is my 1st full HD 1080p projector. Having two LED HDTV I was expecting to watch my Blu-Ray movies in 24p which on my both TVs looks amazingly smooth (no jitter) thanks for 120Hz technology. Optoma HD23 projector is a bargain but obviously with the low price comes lack of smooth 24 frame movies processing. Sure, projector accepts 24Hz video signal but it does not process it further which results in jittery, unnacceptable picture.
Great picture quality, Easy to set-up, Small footprint
The image quality doesn't look that spectacular at default settings, either. But from here on, the Optoma's class begins to shine through. It's the only projector here that works best using a cinema or movie oriented preset mode and it makes the HD23 very easy to set up. Just stick it in cinema mode and let it rip.
A full suite of inputs and outputs making it capable of just about anything
We congratulate Epson on their W16SK Dual Projector concept. It may not be the only passive solution possible, but it is well executed. The W16SK serves up exceptionally bright 2D and 3D performance combined with the strong value proposition, earns the W16SK a Hot Product Award. There's more! In this year's Education Projector report, the W16SK wins our Best In Classroom: 3D Projector award.
Definitely Recommend the Optoma DW339 WXGA
I would recommend the resolution of the DW339 WXGA model - it has a Native WXGA resolution of 1280 x 800. Not only is this way better than a resolution of 800x600, but it's also widescreen so it won't cut off the top and the bottom. This way, everything widescreen uses the full resolution of your projector and not just part of it. The price difference is minimal for getting such an improved picture quality that will still be considered good a year or a few years from now.
Can be used with Mac portable devices like the IPad, IPod and IPhone
Overall I would say the Epson MegaPlex MG-50 is a good choice for those who want a way to project all kinds of content from their Mac portable device or from a High Definition source. Its size and portability mean you can easily put it away when you don't need it, or just leave it on the coffee table for convenience.
Color is very good post calibration
The BenQ W1200 isn't priced as an entry level 1080p projector. Those projectors are under $1000. The W1200 competes price wise more with several very good, step up home theater projectors. At the time of this review, online prices for the W1200 are not far below $1500. The W1200 in some ways seems to be entry level, but in others, definitely not.
Pictures are very sharp and clean
BenQ has managed to bring some genuine mid-range touches to its supposedly cheap and cheerful W1200 projector, resulting in an image that can look ridiculously good at times. The projector lacks refinement in a couple of areas, but it's still very persuasive, especially if your viewing room has a little ambient light to contend with.
Budget priced DLP projector
Overall, the W1200 presents a great argument for not spending an arm and a leg on a high-end home cinema projector. Bizarrely, I'm going to advocate you spend even less. The W1200 has a lookalike sibling which lacks frame interpolation and is £200 cheaper: the W1100. My suggestion is if you like the sound of this model, audition the W1100 first, as I'm inclined to think the frame interpolation isn't worth the extra wedge.
Good feature package
The W1200 delivers an overall satisfying picture, once it's properly adjusted. But, the process of getting there is maddeningly frustrating, not to mention time-consuming. It's certainly reasonably priced, and BenQ points out that the street price of $1,500 is what consumers should expect to pay, making the W1200 the lowest priced ISF certified projector out there.
No need to adjust focus at any distance from screen
Surprisingly similar to the original ShowWX, but with the one serious problem?in the form of a flickering green line with some images?solved, plus any number of small improvements and a lower price, the MicroVision ShowWX+ laser projector is well worth a look.
Small and light
The Microvision SHOWWX laser pico projector is the full package. It's a battery-powered projector that can be plugged directly into an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch with the help of an included cable. However, it illustrates the problem with almost all current pico projectors - it's just not bright enough to produce a satisfying image large enough to make projection worthwhile.
