We will still be proofing, and adding minor content over the first week, but this year’s Best In Class awards are all there. Â There really aren’t any great surprises for those of you who pat attention to a lot of the reviews, as there were fewer new HT projectors launched in the last 10 months than in most years. Â We also lost Mitsubishi which exited both home and commercial projetors. Â Check out the report, it’s a lot more condensed than usual, with more
Optoma HD91 LED Home Theater Projector Review Published
June 11, 2014 - Art Feierman
Greetings projector folks, I’m pleased to let you know that the bulk of the Optoma HD91 projector review is now live. Â This is a single chip DLP projector, claiming 1000 lumens, and an LED light source. Â It has an impressive 1.9:1 manual zoom lens and a good amount of lens shift.
The HD91 also does 3D, using RF glasses and an included, outboard very small emitter. As you will find out in the report, the HD91 is rather interesting. Â It’s the best attempt at a reasonably affordable solid state light engine (LED in this case), for the home theater.

This afternoon Mike stopped by to pick up the HD91 projector to calibrate it. Â I’ll have it back
Greetings projector fans – Â I just want to say for now that I really am impressed with JVC’s DLA-RS4910. Â This projector doesn’t exist in the consumer X series, only on the pro RS. Â With a sticker price of about $5500 list.
JVC’s DLA-RS4910 produces an impressive picture for a $5000 range projector
What I really wanted to say is that the picture is extremely saturated and rich looking, reminds me of a good DLP projector. Â I found the iris to be about as invisible as one can hope for, and the blacks really good.
This JVC RS4910 projector isn’t yet calibrated but it has a couple of great looking modes to start with. Â Mike will calibrate it when he gets back from his travels, this weekend. Â I’ll shoot the movie photos then, do the HDTV in the meantime.
It’s been a few months since I’ve had the Sony HW55ES here, so I’m working from memory. Â I figure the JVC has more pop,
