Luckily, I was able to get my hands on the new BenQ w1070 (I don’t think it is even selling yet in the states). For those not familiar, it is an entry level DLP, 1080p projector with 3D capabilities! This projector will retail for ~$1100 and a number of folks were hoping a review of this projector before the holidays, so I’m glad I was able to follow through. :) Hopefully, I can help a few prospective projector owners make an informed decision. Read on!
Art shipped me the ViewSonic Pro 9000 projector along side the BenQ w1070 so I was able to have both in house at the same time, which is always nice. The ViewSonic Pro9000 is a “Laser Hybrid LED” projector that seemed to peak the interest of some of you folks so I’m glad I was able to take a look. I was going to do a “shootout” between the BenQ W1070 and this projector but the Pro9000 retails for ~$2899, putting it in the mid level price range, so I decided to do separate reviews. Read on to find out how the ViewSonic Pro9000 holds up in the game room!
It’s been a while since I’ve had a projector of this caliber in my theater. It was great to get a chance to take a look at this year’s Epson flagship. No doubt, the Epson 5020e threw one of the most impressive images I’ve ever had on my screen. But how does this projector hold up in the game room? Read on to find out!
I’m back after a bit of a break, (recently moved to a new house), but now I’m settled, and I’ve got a budget gaming projector shootout between the Acer H5360 ($499) and the Epson 710HD ($599). Both of these projectors are 720P native resolution and represent a good value in their price range. The Acer is a DLP technology based projector and the Epson is 3LCD. Read on to find out the strengths and weaknesses of each and which projector I would choose.
It’s been quite a while since my last review, but I was able to get my hands on the Acer H6500. It’s a portable, bright, entry level projector that supports native 1080p resolution, and the price makes it an appealing option for those wanting a 1080p proejctor on a budget. There are many strengths to this projector, but there are some weaknesses that should be considered before purchasing. Read on to find out how the Acer H6500 holds up in the game room and how it compares to the GT750. And be sure to read the conclusion!
I was able to sit down last week and test BenQ’s flagship projector, the W7000. At ~$2500, it is a direct competitor to the Epson 5010. I’m glad I was able to look at these two projectors soon enough after one another to make a proper comparison. The W7000 projector throws a super bright and extremely sharp image and also includes features like 3D and frame interpolation. Input lag has been a topic of concern with many of the newer projector models, read on to find out how this projector measures up in the game room!
It’s been a little while since I’ve had my hands on any new projectors, and I was really hoping Art would allow me to get my hands on this one. Up until receiving the Epson 5010e, I had primarily looked at projectors in the $700 -$1400 range. The Epson 5010 retails for ~$2999 and I can tell you – it certainly performs like a projector in that price range. I took a look at the Epson 5010′s younger brother (Epson 3010), and I really liked the image quality, but it suffered from a bit too much input lag to recommend for any serious gaming. I can say that the Epson 5010e is superior to the 3010 in nearly every fashion. Read on to find out more on how the Epson 5010e holds up in the game room.
Over the past several years, Epson has established a pattern of producing some of the most competitive projectors in class, so its no surprise many were anxious for me to share my thoughts on the new Epson 3010. At $1599 ($1799 for the 3010e), the Epson 3010 fits into the just-above entry-level market and boasts some impressive features (including 3D capabilities) for its price point. Read on to find out how the 3010 holds up in the game room!
Before I left for Austin, I had a chance to sit down and play with the Optoma GT750 projector for a while. Sometimes it takes a little time apart to fully appreciate what you had. One thing is certain, seeing the Optoma GT750 reminded my how much I really enjoyed the GT720.
I found it to be remarkably similar to its younger brother (the Optoma GT720), In fact, I found them so similar it was difficult to take note of the differences without seeing them side by side.
I apologize for being MIA for a little while. I am in the process of moving to Austin, TX for a new job and have not had time to sit down at all lately. But I do have some updates for you!
Yes, I’ll share the Scrabble story too…
