Greetings from Panasonic West. Ok, not really! Panasonic in the US, is HQ’d in Secaucus, NJ. But they have their digital labs out by Universal Studios in LA. Today, I got a first look at Panasonic’s PT-AE7000 (click for specifications) 3D and 2D, 1080p home theater projector!
It will be shipping in September! I asked, they could not tell me when in Sept – early or late, or… We’ll just have to see.
A quick comment then some details. I had the opportunity to see a good hour plus of assorted 3D content, including Ice Age 3, and Read the rest of this entry »

Greetings, here’s the short version:
Mitsubishi’s HC9000D is another excellent 2D projector with 3D capabilities, competing with similarly capable projectors in the $4K – $12K range. It’s got a few more lumens for 3D than the Sony VW90ES, and the Sharp XV-Z17000, even more compared the JVC RS60…
The HC9000D has a great CFI for movie viewing! That’s a real highlight for me. The HC9000′s dynamic iris is smooth, but very slow.

UPDATE: The Optoma GT720 projector review has been posted!
Just a quick note, our full projector review of the Optoma GT720 (click for specifications) gaming projector will post by 9pm (pacific time), tonight! It will have links to both of our serious gaming bloggers. Pete and Scott’s blogs offer their analysis of the GT720′s abilities first and foremost, for gaming, while our full review integrates their summaries, along with our take on the GT720 as a general home projector. We consider it for watching movies, sports, 3D content, and TV/HDTV in general. See what we think of this affordable short throw 3D game projector! -art
