UDPDATE: The full Mitsubishi HC7800D Review has been posted here.
Greetings projector folk, it’s time to give you a quick run down on the Mitsubishi HC7800D home theater projector, before the full review is ready.

OK, to the Mitsubishi HC7800D projector. This projector (pre-production unit) looks to replace the HC6800 but it features a change in technology, from LCD to DLP, and of course, adds 3D abilities. The HC7800D I got to work with (for a week), I returned to them Thursday (two days ago), as they needed it for the CES show. They will return to me, either that HC7800, or another, with newer (hopefully final production) firmware, when we all get back from the show in a week.
The HC7800D sports an MSRP of $3995, but MAP – the minimum advertised price is $2495 (or was it $2499?). Sales are going to be through CEDIA dealers, that is, local, installing type dealers.
