I've seen a few other threads similar to this but they are all older and with prices dropping all the time I figured it was time for a new one. Plus I'm on the market for one so it works out



So, throw out some suggestions. $1500 or less

Might be a little hard to find but I just stumbled across a Mitsubishi HC6500 and it is absolutely dazzling. Strong blacks and the most life like color (I am really put off by bad skin tones) right out of the box.

After all rebates this is close.... http://www.projectionguys.com/imgs/c...ils_button.gif

link no worky


and thanks for the suggestion but I would really like to keep it to $1500 or UNDER. $1500 is actually the outer price limit and would need to be noticeably better than one of the several $1000 PJ's for me to consider.

Viewsonic Pro8100 or Mitsubishi hc5500.


Viewsonic lists for 1300, Mits for 1500. Take 10% off the Viewsonic if you use tiger direct and bing cashback. Both are miles ahead of the sub $1000 pj's out now.

Miles ahead? This is your opinion or you have done a side by side review? If not, please post links to these reviews you are using for reference thanks.



BTW, I have a Optoma HD20 that was $999 and can be found for less it is a 1080p dlp. I would say an Epson 6100ub would be closer to "Miles Ahead" based on the reviews.

epson pro 6100, if you factor in the 100 dollar rebate, free bulb which you can sell, and use paypal cashback at a place like tiger direct

Organic panels, ugh.....


No thanks...

I have had the Epson 720 HC, Optoma HD200x, and now the Viewsonic Pro8100. Side by side, projecting at the SAME time I couldn't see any difference between the Epson and Optoma. Black levels, shadow detail, color vividness, etc. In fact, I much preferred the Epson in the end. The resolution was better at 1080p on the HD200x, but of course it's a 1080p vs 720p projector. On the other hand it's as noisy as hell on bright mode(I couldn't stand it), has less menu options for tweaking than the HD65, and has limited placement flexibility.


Now I have the Viewsonic side by side with the Epson and wow, there is no comparison. Black levels are much better, shadow detail just as good(the Epson is very good here) and just as much, (actually more) menu settings to tweak the picture than the Epson. It's not as bright as the Epson in full brightness mode, but can be tweaked for between 600 and 900 lumens. The 1.6x zoom is a bonus for placement, and very very quiet, almost no noise at all. Both the Viewsonic and HC5500 use inorganic panels
