Mitsubishi HC7900DW Projector: Pros and Cons

Mitsubishi HC7900DW Projector: Pros

  • A brighter than average 701 calibrated measured lumens in "best" mode, is enough for a reasonably large screen for movie viewing in a fully light controlled environment, or good viewing on 100" with modest ambient light.
  • Excellent overall color, and especially skin tones
  • Very good dark shadow detail (but not near "best in class")
  • Zoom lens for good placement flexibility
  • No problem with any 720p or 1080i/p content from any DirecTV 3D channel, or Blu-Ray 3D
  • Optional 3D glasses and emitter provide plenty of range for 3D
  • Good looking CFI (for smooth motion)
  • Lamp Life is excellent (rated 5000 hours) in Eco Mode
  • Low maintenance - no filters to change
  • Lamp can be replaced without unmounting the projector
  • Dynamic iris very smooth
  • Excellent warranty: 3 years parts and labor
  • A smaller projector, fits nicely in smaller rooms

Mitsubishi HC7900DW Projector: Cons

  • Could be brighter in "brightest modes"
  • Actual "brightest" measured mode - is unwatchable (but others come close)
  • Lamp life is below average if you run at full power for the most brightness
  • Black level performance could be further improved (though not bad for the price)
  • Fair amount of audible noise at full power, but many other good projectors are louder (including most other DLPs)
  • 3D glasses and are optional (just a reminder)
  • Encountered a minor glitch or two coming out of 3D mode to 2D, but not a problem
  • Remote is dated, backlight dim, buttons soft
  • Definitely could use additional user memory positions
