There are in-depth reviews for each of the products picked, click on the reviews tab in the menu bar above and you'll find them under the Home AV hub. The criteria for the awards is that we have to have reviewed the products in question in the last 12 months.Would have rather had a bit more of an indepth review and one which didn't sit on the fence with the whole DLP vs Epson question.
It's 2020 and we have had this thing called Covid, you may have heard of it. This has impacted on the number of reviews we have been able to do this year. Mainly because big companies for most of the lockdowns have put staff on furlough and they haven't been launching any new product in the same numbers as they would in a normal year. I would love to have more categories, but at the moment we can only review what is in front of us.E.g. best gaming projector, best lazer projector, best living room PJ, best UST PJ, best dark room PJ, projector of the year etc.
Just think projection has so much variation going for it and so many use cases and scenarios that to just render it down to 3 categories.. is a bit meh.
Rather harsh assessment there, but sadly true. I still very much miss my JVC HD-1. I've taken the big TV route for years now but still waiting for some innovation in the projector space, which seems to have stagnated or slowed to a crawl. DLPs, I find are harsh on my eyes, plus the RBE ruins them for me, and whilst I've been tempted by the Epson 9400, the lack of a sealed light engine, not true 4k and still bulb based, same old same old. I would have expected true 4K (non-DLP) laser light engined projectors by now in the high end £4-6k range, rather than the Ultra high end £10k plus range they still inhabit.DLP have rainbows and poor blacks, LCD have dust blobs, that's why most true home cinema enthusiasts with a decent budget go for JVC.
