View the Best In Class Awards page for a summary of all the winners!
These are projectors that are generally great for movie viewing, but for one reason or another, are less practical for watching other content. The key reason a projector make this group: limited brightness in brightest modes. That means the inability to handle any significant ambient light, since most people don’t watch sports or most TV in a pitch black room. These projectors should have at least good black level performance. Almost all of these have “brightest modes” that are only average or below in brightness.
Projectors that are completely well rounded, and equally good at HDTV and Sports (requiring at least average “brightest mode” performance), are not included in this list.
Afterall, the best overall projectors are the ones that win our Best In Class awards, and don’t need to be also on these additional lists, even though they should be good For example, the Mitsubishi HC3800 could be said to be very good at movies, but it is equally good at sports and HDTV. As a result it’s not listed as a “movies only” projector even though it would serve well as one.
