Greetings all, Bad news for those urgently waiting for the CF181D review.
Well, I’ll be late with it. I had said late tonight, for posting, but that’s not going to happen now. At least I have what I think is a great excuse:
Just got a last minute invite to head up to LA. AND it seems I’m heading to a famous LA (actually Santa Monica) music landmark, McCabes Guitar Store, where they’ve been holding small concerts for about 40+ years. (check Wiki)
Anyway, a friend, it turns out, knows Jorma Kaukonan from the “old days” (Jorma was theguitarist for Jefferson Airplane, Jefferson Starship, Hot Tuna, etc., and Jorma’s playing tonight in a room that will probably be not much more than 100 people at McCabes.
Sorry, can’t miss it. I’m an old, and huge fan of Airplane and Starship. And, I may even be having dinner with Jorma and friends. So, that means… I’m off to “hijack the starship – and carry 7000 people past the sun, to the cities of the universe” (ahh, the dreams we had…) that is, when I’m not “taking one pill that make’s you larger, or one that makes you small” not the one your mother gives you, that does nothing at all.” (coming back to any of you?)
Look for the LG CF181D review late Saturday instead. I’m down to about 4 or 5 hours work, before I can post it. -art

Well, the most frustrating thing about reviewing the LG CF181D home theater projector has definitely been figuring out how to lay my hands on one. A two and a half month effort finally obtained me an LG to review. My hanks to the folks at Projector People (an LG dealer), who managed to come up with the contact names I needed to make it happen.
I’ll keep this short, since the full review is only about 48 hours off. Pictures are all taken, over 50 hours of viewing, including tons of Olympics. I’m mostly Read the rest of this entry »

- BenQ W600 – 720p, DLP and 3D ready projector!
What have we here?
The BenQ W600 (which they sent me despite my best efforts to obtain the W1000 that everyone has been asking for), is a 720p projector that is 3D capable. It’s also incredibly bright!
It’s the first BenQ marketed as ready for 3D. Yep, 3D, and 3DTV is the big buzzword for 2010. Look for 3D content from ESPN and other Read the rest of this entry »

Greetings one, and all,
OK, due to some typical “dynamics” things keep changing around here, regarding what projectors are about to be reviewed. I haven’t mentioned this, since yesterday, and things have already changed, due to updates on what projectors are arriving and what just “snuck” in the door. Read the rest of this entry »

OK, had a brief conference call with Epson a couple of hours ago. I think I got everything straight, but I was on my cell phone, out of my office, at the time. (no notes).
Here’s the story: Read the rest of this entry »

I’ve been remiss in terms of keeping you all posted as to what’s coming. So, here’s the plan, starting with the BenQ W600. That’s right, it’s 3DTV time!
I just hooked up the low cost W600 a few minutes ago (haven’t even fired it up, as I have to head out, shortly). Read the rest of this entry »
