“I want to provide a great resource to new projector buyers and consumers in general who are interested in home theater. Home Theater enthusiasts who would like guidance in their home theater purchases will also find plenty of information,” said Feierman. “The report includes lots of background and explanation.”

Designed to help shoppers research and determine the best home theater projector suited to their needs, the Second Annual 1080p report includes technical information important to enthusiasts such as color temperature, zoom lens range, input number and type, etc., yet it is written in a layperson’s language that is easy to understand. It considers 20 projector models in three price categories: Entry Level ($2000 and under); Medium Range ($2000 - $3000); and Higher-End ($3500 - $10,000). The categories were determined by typical selling prices at authorized dealers in mid-March, including promotions and rebates.

The Report discusses results from individual product reviews and tests in the following areas: physical attributes (zoom range, lens shift, array of inputs, layout, control panels, remote controls); image quality (out-of-the-box performance, black levels, details, sharpness, color accuracy, overall picture quality); and general performance (menus, user savable settings, brightness, rainbow effect, audible noise, calibration). The summary includes commentary and a link to a number of “head to head” comparisons. It also mentions projector screen recommendations and provides differences in warranty information.

Best in Class Award Winners are:

Entry Level – Panasonic PT-AE2000U

Mid-Priced – Epson Home Cinema 1080p UB
