Optoma HD91 LED Home Theater Projector – Review Started – First Look
May 7, 2014 - Art Feierman
Greetings Home Theater Projector fans, the Optoma HD91 is here.
I spent about four hours playing with it last night, mostly getting a handle on how the LED light engine affects the picture (compared to conventional lamps) and how good/accurate the HD91 is in terms of out of the box color performance.
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,
Finally More Home Theater Projectors Arriving – JVC RS4910, Optoma HD91

The good news, is that finally, I’ve got a new JVC projector inbound for review. Â I want to thank the great folks at AV Science – you know – Â the folks that created and brought you the AVSforum, have been kind enough to ship me a DLA-RS4910. Â For those not familiar, the JVC DLA-RS4910 is a slightly different version, but almost identical to the DLA-X500R. Â I’ve received the tracking number on the JVC projector, so know it’s arriving this coming…
Greetings, this is just a quick note that the first pass of our projector review of the Sony VPL-VW600ES home theater projector has been posted. Â That means there’s still a bit more to come, but the core review is there. Â Missing still is the VPL-VW600ES calibration information, and some comparisons to the serious projector competition, among other things.
4K content is visually stunning, click for the larger image
The VPL-VW600ES produces an awesome picture. Â 4K makes such a difference, including a big one with 1080p content, but when you get to watch true 4K content then you are getting a jump in resolution that’s almost as great as going from pre-hdtv NTSC tv to 1080.
True 4K or Ultra-HD is something that is more appreciated by us projector folk than folks with those tiny 65 inch LCD TVs. Â We need it more. Â Sadly, only Sony is offering up 4K so far, but I predict that will change dramatically over the next two years.
The Sony VPL-VW600ES projector claims 1700 lumens, and delivers on that claim.
