Truth be told, we've no qualms with a company unveiling nine new DLP projectors at once, but it is a wee bit overwhelming. From the top, we've got Optoma's 720p HD65 ($999) and HD71 ($1,299), which aim to please HT enthusiasts and deliver 1,600 / 2,400 lumens, respectively, and offer up HDMI 1.3, component, VGA, S-Video and composite inputs. Upping the ante is the 1080p HD803 ($2,599), which features 1,200 lumens, an 8,000:1 contrast ratio and a three-stage video processing system. Taking things down a notch, we see the EP721 ($599), EP727 ($699), EP728 ($999) and EP7155 ($999) which top out with an XGA resolution and seem to cater to educational institutions and businesses. Those needing a WXGA resolution can check out the EP1691 ($999; pictured), which weighs in at just 3.2-pounds and packs 2,500 lumens. Lastly, the port-filled EP761 ($1,299) touts an XGA resolution, 3,200 lumens, a 2,000:1 contrast ratio and DVI, VGA (2 in, 1 out), composite, S-Video, RS-232 and USB connectors. The whole lot is slated to ship out right about now, and if you're craving more in-depth details on any one in particular, the read links below should do the trick.
