    Pico Genie M100 Palm Projector XGA hands on

    By 28 January 2011

    You've got loads of pics and videos on your iPhone but, trouble is, you've only got a 3.5-inch screen to show them off on. So, until Apple chucks an onboard projector onto its phone baby, you're gonna need an outlet for all that media. Now, you could...

    Epson R4000 review

    By 1 September 2010

    With gamers demanding ever more immersive ways of playing, and Blu-ray making pin-sharp pictures possible even on 100-inch+ screens, home cinema projectors are in pole position. The follow-up to last year’s successful batch of beamers, the R4000 sits...

    Samsung SP-F10M projector review

    By 13 May 2010

    The Samsung SP-F10M is notable because it is an LED projector that breaks the 1000 ANSI lumen barrier, meaning it is cost effective (to run) as well as being powerful enough to use in most situations. It is pitched as a business model and has a range...

    3M MPro150 Pocket Projector review

    By 15 April 2010

    Epson EH-TW4400 projector review

    By 2 March 2010

    LCD has virtually replaced plasma TVs in the mass market (less than one in ten use the original flat TV tech) by getting technically better, and 3LCD projectors are looking to do the same in home cinema projection. It’s got a long way to go because...

    BenQ W1000 projector review

    By 23 February 2010

    We've all brought home a projector from the office and been thoroughly disappointed with the results. And while dedicated home cinema projectors offer widescreen high-definition and the contrast and smoothness movies demand, on first impression the W1000...

    Epson EH-DM3 projector review

    By 25 January 2010

    For those who baulk at the idea of swapping their flatscreen TV for a projector, consider this - Epson's new EH-DM3 can project 300-inch images. At this price that's remarkable, but its lengthy feature-count doesn't stop there. Strapped with 10W stereo...

    By 26 November 2009

    With the birth of Blu-ray comes the re-birth of home cinema projectors, but until now affordable Full HD 1080p models have been very expensive. Leading the charge in the circa-£1000 market comes Epson with its feature-rich TW2900, a no-nonsense projector...
