Do you know when you don't need to worry about drawing the blackout shades and dimming the lights for projector use? When your projector cranks out 10,000 lumens, that's when. The Christie LX1000 is just such a beast, even though it looks to be a twin brother of the Sanyo PLC-XF71. For its part,...

We understand that the DVD-packin' projector has a certain place in life, but even in that dark little cavern, Epson's EH-DM2 didn't do much to impress the panel over at TrustedReviews. The first thing that really got 'em worked up was the outright omission of an HDMI port, and of course, the subpa...

While we can't say we've ever felt the need for a projector with a built-in DVD player and a built-in "surround sound" system, Epson seems to think there's at least some folks that want a big box of compromises, and it's hoping its new EH-DM2 projector will be to their liking. This one's a 3LCD pro...

Nothing too exceptional here, but Panasonic has just released its new LB80 series of LCD projectors. The PT-LB80NTU, PT-LB75NTU and PT-LW80NTU beamers (and the widescreen counterpart, PT-LW80NTU) all tip the scales at under 7-pounds (that's the "lightest in their class," so we're told) and feature...

It looks like it's not only those in Japan that'll be able to get their hands on what's purported to be the "industry's smallest and lightest XGA projector," with Sanyo now also announcing that its diminutive PLC-XW60 LCD projector will soon be available 'round these parts as well. Most importantly...

3LCD manufacturers including Epson and Sony are getting behind a new metric for measuring color reproduction among projectors. Since the contrast ratio is based on just pure white and pure black, a high value does not guarantee that the colors produced by a projector are "punchy." This new "Color...

While there's been no shortage of projectors for the suits of late, NEC is looking out for the CEOs (and subordinates) of tomorrow with the VT700. This portable device features a 1,024 x 768 native resolution, automatic keystone correction, near-instantaneous startup and shut down, 3,000 lumens, an...

Nearly a year after Toshiba introduced its TLP-XC2500U, the firm is finally giving the document camera-equipped projector a refresh and dubbing it the TLP-XC2500AU. Hailed as a low-cost way to get a doc cam integrated into a projector, this device is aimed squarely at educators and businesses, feat...

Toshiba's got a new projector for those who spend more time in the conference room than the comfort of a home theater. The TLP-X3000U LCD model pumps out a standard XGA (1024 x 768) resolution at a bright 3,000 lumens, which should be enough for you to leave the lights on while you rock your PowerP...

Sanyo looks set to release a followup to its PLV-Z4 projector soon, with the shockingly-named PLV-Z5 bumping the specs in all the right areas -- or at least about as much as you can expect at this price point. Pumping out a 1280×720 resolution, this one promises a 7,500:1 contrast ratio, 1,10...
