Review: Sony BDP-S300 Blu-ray Player

June 13, 2007

A good friend of mine was kind enough to drop by and allow me to check out his new Sony BDP-S300 ($499) Blu-ray player. You know me, check out turned into a five and a half hour review. Sony’s BDP-S300 at $499 has sparked a fair amount of interest among those who have, thus far, […]

JVC DLA-HD1 – 1080p Projector Review

May 14, 2007

To say that JVC’s DLA-HD1 and DLA-RS1 have caused a slight commotion in the front projection community would be akin to describing a full fledged earthquake as a minor rumble. Every so often a product comes along that redefines our expectations for that price-point, the DLA-HD1 is just such a product.

Mitsubishi HC5000 – 1080p Projector Review

April 3, 2007

As I mentioned in a previous update it took me nearly six months to get my hands on a Mitsubishi HC5000 but the wait was absolutely worth it. Several months ago I got my first glimpse of the HC5000, that glimpse turned into 5 or 6 full length movies, a dozen or so favorite chapters […]

Review: Carada Precision Series Projection Screen

February 12, 2007

A few months ago we moved to a new house which brought on several changes in our home theater system. First off, we were once again able to have a subwoofer without worry that our cranky neighbors would complain. The second change the move afforded us was the chance to pair our projector up to […]

Toshiba HD-A2 Review

January 15, 2007

Toshiba’s second generation HD DVD players have arrived. The entry level HD-A2 ($499) has been available for several weeks now and by the time you read this the HD-XA2 (HDMI 1.3 & 1080p) should be should be on store shelves as well.

Review: Sony PlayStation 3 (BD Playback)

January 1, 2007

I’ll bet that’s a post title some of you are a bit surprised to see here but as the months have progressed since HD DVD’s launch, it has become increasingly apparent we’re no closer to deciding on the next-generation optical disc format than the day(s) they were originally announced. Just after Christmas I found myself […]

Sony VPL-VW50 (Pearl) Review

October 12, 2006

The front projection price to performance ratio mimics the personal computer market in many ways, while processors and memory do indeed fall in price from quarter to quarter, what was adequate last quarter may not satisfy our ever growing desire for bigger, better, faster and more. Back when 200 MHz processors were first introduced 1 […]

Sony VPL-VW50 (Pearl) Review – Continued

Image Quality: Continued from Sony VPL-VW50 (Pearl) Review – Part 1. I had a bag full of SD and HD DVD’s on hand for the review but this being a Sony projector it just felt appropriate to pull out the Superbit version of ‘The Fifth Element’. Yes this disc has many a mile on it […]

OPPO DV-970HD DVD Player Review

September 5, 2006

For the last year or so the majority of the conversations I’ve had about budget DVD players, inevitably end up with “have you seen the OPPO?” to which I would reply, “Not yet, no”. Well thankfully those days are over and I don’t have to be a conversation killer when OPPO comes up. OPPO’s first […]

InFocus IN76 Video Projector Review

August 14, 2006

It’s odd to think that video projectors with 720 lines of vertical resolution and 800 lumens are available for less than $3000, considering that when I got into the business a comparable projector would have sold for nearly five times that, not that we even had 720p then but that’s a different story altogether.. For […]
