Hi! OK, RonJ’s own blog is up and running. As promised, therefore, I’m deleting it from here (with a link to his first blog article on his own blog: Projectors: The Technical Side… This blog is Titled: Moving to 3D Click to enjoy.
A couple of folks posted comments to this blog. I had asked to wait until RonJ’s was up. OK, bottom line, a couple of you, that I suggested post your comments on Ron’s blog, instead reposted on this one, but addressed to Ron. Ron has no access to my blog, other than as a reader. Please (Peter, and one other) repost on to Ron’s blog, at the address above.

Visit Ron’s blog, “Home Theater and Projectors: The Technical Side” now!
It’s time for me to introduce another new blogger on our site. Welcome Ron Jones, below he’s provided a brief introduction to himself, and tomorrow I’ll be posting his first serious blog on the technical side of projectors and related home theater.
I’ve asked him to write a short intro, for me to post here. After that, I want to tell you a bit about what we’re up to, blog wise, and why Ron’s starting to blog for us. So, here’s Ron:
My name is Ron Jones and I am very pleased to have been invited by Art to contribute to Projector Reviews with a new blog focused on home theater video technology with an emphasis on new technologies, such as 3D, and associated issues/considerations. My background is as an Electrical Engineer (MSEE) with 30+ years professional experience and as a home theater owner/enthusiast for 35+ years. My home theaters Read the rest of this entry »

Greetings everyone, Sorry I’ve been a bit out of touch. Two weeks of travel in the last 23 days, (from So. Cal, to Hawaii, then a break, then Washington D.C. But I got a lot of work done (and some play). I’m back for a good 10 days, then off to Infocomm, where I expect some interesting home theater projector announcements. But more on that in the next blog or two.
Projector Reviews, you may have noticed, has a “new” homepage. Or rather, the new homepage is based on the homepage we were running several years, until Read the rest of this entry »

In our attempt to provide you more, better information on projectors, this week (Monday) we rolled out a newly designed homepage. Projector Reviews now looks very different from before, as we’ve gone to a panes design for the homepage.
Unfortunately, we hit some unanticipated problems, with parts of the design, that didn’t become apparent until our projectors homepage went live.
The good news, is that, as of earlier today, Read the rest of this entry »

Lots of readers have asked about gaming on various home theater projectors.
OK, I’ve concluded that I’ll never be a real gamer – certainly not one with the gaming experience, etc. to make good judgement calls on whether a given projector is particularly good, bad, or otherwise, when it comes to playing various types of games, be it WOW, or Carbon Canyon, or…Sonic?
So, here’s the story: I’m looking for an experienced gamer, living somewhere near San Clemente CA. (half way between LA and San Diego).
This person ideally is both a PC gamer and PS/3 or XBox (even Wii counts, but, hey, it’s still not as high end…)
Said person would evaluate various home projectors for key issues such as how good is the response time, picture quality (many projectors end up too dark on dark scenes (ie. WOW), and other issues.
Most likely “testing” would be done at my location. I already have PS/3′s and a Wii. I can add XBox 360 if really needed. Since I’m looking for a PC gamer, that person would help me purchase and configure a pretty high end gaming PC, which would be installed in my location, to be used by our “Projector Gaming Master.”
Once a process is set up, I imagine, the testing per projector shouldn’t take more than an hour or two, to cover both PC and game machine options.
The individual I’m looking for, would probably have the option of evaluating up to 20 projectors a year, but likely more like a dozen or so.
My gaming expert would be an independent contractor. Said person would be contracted one projector at a time, or perhaps several over a period of time. Very “part time” only a few hours a month, most likely, and that depending on what projectors… But, it should be fun. And, if the gamer can write reasonably well, I may want to launch a blog about gaming and projectors on the site. If that was the case, I’d be looking for someone to blog about once a month. This would be separate from testing the projectors/gaming.
So, OK, you hard core gamers, anyone nearby, have skills, and want to make a few bucks?
Students also welcome. Must have own transportation. Since the desired person will be an independent contractor contracted for on as needed basis, they should be flexible. Testing will be done here (with rare exceptions), in the daytime, or the evening. Those are details that can be worked out. While this may be about gaming, I’m looking for someone I can count on.
BTW, some of that gaming in 2011, is almost certain to include 3D gaming.

OK, I haven’t been writing much. Today is the 27th day Projector Reviews Inc., myself, Lori, etc. are now living in our new home.
That also means it’s 28 days since we moved out of the last house, with all my gear packed up, and my two viewing rooms there, abandoned.
I’m back in business! Soon to be better than ever! Here’s the scoop on the two new rooms: Read the rest of this entry »

We continue to improve our projector site, and I just wanted to bring you up to speed on some of the new changes.
Also, I’m open to suggestions for further improvements – keep things modest though – I’m talking the site, not individual reviews, at this time. Please post any suggestions only to this particular blog page.
OK, let’s talk about some new tabs found on the masthead (the top) of all pages. Read the rest of this entry »

Greetings, This is just a quick note for those of you getting our RSS feed. The rather massive 1080p projector report went live 3 minutes ago.
Naturally, it’s not fully proofed, more links, and more articles, including about 8-10 more head to head projector comparisons will be added over the next week or so.
Still there’s plenty to read, compare, and debate. Have a blast. A favor, no need to comment back about minor errors – yet. The bulk of the proofing will be completed by Monday night – then, if you have found something – let us know! thanks – and enjoy! -art (I’m off to a concert – for a well needed break)
