HP XB31 is my favorite new DLP: http://www.shopping.hp.com/cgi-bin/h...me=product.cgi


Search here for personal reviews and discussions. Has new 12 degrees mirrors for 1800:1 CR, zoom, VGA/DVI/Svid/composite/component, HDTV/480p compatible, and 1500 lumens (4:3 XGA DMD) at 3.5#. Stick that up LCD's lens :D Needs a special cable ($45) for component access due to specialized port.

I would love to see a review of this baby using a DVI equipped HTPC. Specs look really good.

(I'm new to projectors so be kind)


This seems a bit loud @ 32db?


I was ready to buy a plasma but I'm intrigued with DLP... this is getting fun :D

Actually 32db is pretty quiet in the projector world.

I've NOT seen this in person but some have and are impressed. Specs certainly looks good. HP is a big enough company that I feel comfortable with their specs. Plus their rep. participate here in this forum, username=xb31. At $3500, I'd bet there'll be quite a few reviews on it in the next few weeks. If you don't want to be the first, wait it out and reviews will pour in. Don't wait too long though as prices may rise if demand exceeds supply (like LT150's case).

Wonder if this one has a white segment on the color wheel? Besides the 12 degree mirrors it would help explain the 1800:1 contrast but would probably make black level way too high.


I'll be awaiting a review but enjoying my modded LT150 in the meantime.....
