Greetings all,  Just an update as to what’s going on, in terms of upcoming projector reviews.  The Panasonic PT-AE7000 wins a Hot Product Award.  We’re starting reviews of the Acer H9500BD, Sony VPL-VW95ES, and Epson Home Cinema 5010.  More about the order, etc., below

As many of you have noticed, the Panasonic PT-AE7000 projector review is up.  Sorry for the delay in mentioning that here.As of this writing, Lori’s just starting to proof, and I still have a few more things to add – some additional comparisons, the screen page, and the menus…It’s one fine projector.  Check out the PT-AE7000 review.So, what’s next?  Glad you asked!Three projectors, that will be worked on simultaneously, more or less:
Acer H9500BD Home Entertainment Projector with 3D
Acer H9500BD 3D Home Entertainment Projector
Already here, and calibrated by Mike, I’m  watching NFL football, and following my Fantasy teams on the new Acer H9500BD home entertainment projector.  With an MSRP of $1699, 3D capabilities and high brightness, it is intended to do battle with projectors like the Epson Home Cinema 3010, and the Optoma HD33.Home Theater projector number #2, goes higher end.  Sony’s VPL-VW95ES.  This 3D capable projector, replaces last year’s 90ES and should be slightly better, overall, but brighter in 3D.  FedX confirmation received that it will arrive tomorrow – Monday.
Epson Home Cinema 5010 - or 5010e Projector
Mystery guest #3, has been awaited a while and delayed, but a last Thursday email still says I should have the Epson Home Cinema 5010 arriving on Wednesday morning!So? you ask, which will publish first?Hard to say.  Originally, I figured the Acer would publish after the Sony, but I had expected the Sony this past week.  As result of that, the Acer likely will publish on Wednesday (11/16).  But I can’t yet promise which of the other two will be next.Most likely, if the Epson Home Cinema 5010 arrives on time (Wed.) I’ll probably push that ahead of the Sony, for no other reason than the market for $3K projectors is probably at least 10 times that of $10,000 projectors like the Sony.  That is, a lot more people are waiting to  see the Epson Home Cinema 5010 review than the VPL-VW95ES.Hang in there.  It’s going to be a fun November.  You’ll get my take on Panasonic PT-AE7000 vs. Epson Home Cinema 5010, how this Acer H9500BD can compete against the other 3D capable entry level 1080p projectors, and if you folks with real dollars in your pocket, will get all you are looking for from the new improved Sony.  -art
