    Hewlett Packard are entering the HC market with a range of projectors, the most interesting of which is the 7122. This is an XGA projector, 12degree mirrors, 6 segment wheel and has a retail of €1990, is priced at c. €1600 from European online retailers, so you can expect this to be hitting the UK market for a little over £1000. This will do 1024x576, same as a NEC HT1100 or the Infocus H57 or whatever the equivalent Optoma model is.......with quite a price differential. The appearance of the projector is different from the norm, a bit like the Epsons, looks like someone form Apple got in on the act :) .

    Take a look, stuff originally posted on avsforum by someone from France - an interesting thread including comments form someone on the development team at HP.............

    As ever, the proof of the pudding is in the eating as far as performance is concerned, so it will be interesting to see some independent reviews. One thing sure and certain is that the long awaited pricedrop in DLPs is beginning to happen at last. I'd say that the HS50 is going to do some further damage to the pricing of 1280x720 DLPs, let's hope that we see their pricing get to more realistic levels soon.

    Does anyone know where I can see a demo of a ep7122 anywhere in or around London? I'm really tempted by it but I wouldnt buy it without seeing it in action first.
