Sim2 C3X
REVIEW

Sim2 C3X

Sim2's C3X is one of the classiest projectors on the block. It offers everything the high-end user could possibly want and has the added bonus of being something of a looker. If you want to top off a home cinema with the ultimate in picture quality then this projector is happy to deliver it

InFocus ScreenPlay 7210
REVIEW

InFocus ScreenPlay 7210

The ScreenPlay 7210 is a classy DLP projector, with a rich, cinematic picture quality, high-definition compatibility and enough connectivity to cater for your AV collection while leaving space for HD DVD and Blu-ray. If you've spent time and money on your home-cinema setup, then the 7210 deserves to be at the heart of it

InFocus ScreenPlay 777
REVIEW

InFocus ScreenPlay 777

It's actually impossible to criticise the InFocus ScreenPlay 777. The price is obviously prohibitive, but it gives an indication not only of the pinnacle of today's home cinema, but what will very feasibly be available for under £5,000 in a few years' time. The overriding message is clear though: this is a cinematic projector so good it leaves you speechless

InFocus ScreenPlay 7205
REVIEW

InFocus ScreenPlay 7205

The ScreenPlay 7205 is a mid-range projector that fulfills its mandate perfectly -- picture quality exceeds mid-range expectations and it's high-definition compatible. Designwise, it's very dull, but it offers excellent connectivity and features and isn't extortionately pricey

NEC HT510
REVIEW

NEC HT510

A projector that's not far off the £1,000 mark often carries a couple of critical weaknesses, be it a poor 4:3 resolution chipset or a lack of AV inputs. The NEC HT510 has been designed specifically for the home market, so it's fully 16:9 and has component and Scart connectivity. Its lack of a high definition chipset might be a problem for long-term investors, but the resolution is perfect for UK users

Toshiba TDP-S25
REVIEW

Toshiba TDP-S25

Toshiba's TDP-S25 is much more suited to business use than home cinemas, due to the shortage of quality AV connections and a poor 4:3 resolution chipset. However, as it's a DLP projector, it does well for video playback. If you can plug a PC into it for watching movies as well as presentations, this is a remarkably cheap way of fulfilling quite a few different needs

Dell 2300MP
REVIEW

Dell 2300MP

While it may be very cheap, the fact this isn't a native widescreen display will turn most cinema fans cold, and the image lacks the brightness needed to cope with most living conditions. If you've got your heart set on a projector, be prepared to spend more

InFocus ScreenPlay 5700
REVIEW

InFocus ScreenPlay 5700

The projection world has had an overhaul thanks to Texas Instruments' DLP chipset, and no one deserves more credit than InFocus for helping implement this. The projector doesn't have a high-definition compatible resolution, which should deter long-term investors, but the picture quality is peerless at this price
