Mitsubishi HC7000 Projector Review

  • Excellent color accuracy after calibration
  • Excellent black level performance
  • Very good shadow detail
  • Extremely sharp image
  • HDMI 1.3 inputs with full support for 24 fps, Deep Color, etc.
  • Converts 24 fps to 48 fps, for (slightly) smoother viewing of movies
  • Low image noise (excellent Reon VX image processing, from Silicon Optics)
  • Support for an anamorphic lens, without the need of a motorized sled for the lens, which saves a lot of money
  • Good menus

Longest lamp life available (5000 hours), if you can run in low lamp mode

  • Good placement flexibility with 1.6:1 zoom and plenty of lens shift
  • The quietest projector around in terms of audible noise
  • Good manual, but thin on some explanations for many functions
  • Good remote control
  • Good price/performance, relative to other “local dealer only” home theater projectors

Mitsubishi HC7000 Projector: Cons

Click to enlarge. SO close

  • Limited brightness – just below average in best mode, well below average in brightest mode
  • Physical styling is very plain (for those who care)
  • Good menu structure, but nothing spectacular
  • In most cases not bright enough for larger screens (over 110 inch diagonal)
  • More user memory modes would be a plus
