Planar PD8150 DLP Projector Conclusion
The Planar PD8150 is a superb projector, one of the best DLP models I've reviewed. The technology has evolved in many ways—and reached lower prices—than I would have ever expected three or four years ago. It's certain to keep more than one maker of more-expensive DLP projectors awake at night.
