Best Home Theater Projectors of 2009
Do you have access to a large number of dvds or home movies that you would like to watch at your own time but would also like to have movie theater quality? Have you been wondering if you should buy a home theater projector but don’t know what to look for? This article will help you out by going over two of the best home theater projectors of 2009.
To start off, let’s talk about the Optoma HD70. At $685, the Optoma HD70 is relatively cheap compared to some of the other models. It has a lamp life of 3000 hours at 200 Watts, meaning that you could theoretically keep it on for 125 days straight without stopping before it dies – and when it does, the lamp is pretty easy to replace (but that’s another story). The image size can be anywhere from 33.55″ to 310″, which truly gives you a movie theater experience. It comes with the AC Power Cord, Composite Video Cable, Component Video Cable, S-Video Cable, Remote Control, Batteries for Remote, Lens Cap, User’s Manual, Quick Start Guide and Warranty Card all in a wonderfully ergonomical carrying case. While this sounds like a lot, the whole thing only weighs 5.6lbs.
The Panasonic PT-AE900u will cost you a bit more but comes with many cool features. At $1,710, the Panasonic PT-AE900u will give you true high definition quality. It measures about 13″ by 4″ by 10.5″ and weighs a bit more than the Optoma HD70 at 7.9 pounds. The PT-AE900U presents a number of features for adjusting the picture quality of your movie including a new Dynamic Iris optical system that lengthens the range of the iris by 30% for a captivating 5500:1 contrast ratio. Dynamic Iris tracks the movement of the scene so that the video flows more thouroughly than your average dvd. The PT-AE900U is also outfitted with new Smooth Screen technology that effectively eliminates the “screen door effect” (visible spacing between pixels) and gives the projector a more high quality film-like presentation. In order to adapt to any home electronic device, the PT-AE900U supports a full range of input sources, including DVD and video players, PCs and game consoles.
Which of these top of the line projectors you choose is completely up to you as the year 2009 has presented the industry with high performance, smaller machines, and award winning capabilities. With your new projector, you will at last be at ease with watching your favorite movies right in the comfort of your own home. Whenever you bring your friends around, they will stare in awe and wonder at how well off you are and will envy your accomplishments.
