Mitsubishi HC6000 projector, Pros, Cons, and Typical Capabilities

Mitsubishi HC6000 Projector: Pros

  • Excellent sharpness
  • Quietest home theater projector we have ever seen (or heard)
  • Slightly better than average brightness in “best” mode (Cinema)
  • Average brightness in “brightest” mode
  • After proper setup, offers balanced and extremely pleasing picture quality
  • Out of the box color balance is good, better than many
  • Excellent gamma controls, in part responsible for very good shadow detail
  • Better than average black levels, and the best of any LCD projectors I’ve seen
  • Most impressive black levels and shadow detail, especially for an LCD projector
  • Lamp life – in low power mode – 5000 hours
  • Good menu system
  • Good warranty
  • Very good manual, with good levels of explanation for most items
  • Two digital inputs (both HDMI 1.3)
  • Focus, zoom, and lens shift are all powered, and controlled by the remote
  • Easy to use, full featured
  • Nice styling
  • Overall, very good price performance

Mitsubishi HC6000 Projector: Cons

  • Pixel visibility is classic LCD, but since it’s a 1080p projector the pixel structure is so small, that you won’t see it at normal seating distances
  • Remote Control’s backlight is dim, definitely annoying in a dark room, until you memorize the buttons
  • Small “main” menu stays on screen until you close it.
  • It offers very good placement flexibility, but not quite as good as other LCD 1080p models (only a 1.6:1 zoom vs 2:1 on most LCD projectors)

Mitsubishi HC6000 Projector: Typical Capabilities

  • Pixel visibility (for a 3LCD projector)
  • Remote control overall, including layout, and range
  • Number and types of inputs
  • Physical size
  • Lamp life, in full power mode (2000 hours)

Mitsubishi HC6000 Summary

The HC6000 has a lot of things going for it. It’s just a very well designed projector. Although it’s a bit more than several other models, I have no doubt that it’s price performance proposition, is a good one. In other words, if it’s bright enough, works for your room and budget, it is a very good choice, with lots of strengths but it really is an all-around well designed projector, and certainly would be a great default projector. You might find another model in its price range that will serve your needs better, but many will choose the HC6000, and be most pleased.
