Digital Projection M-Vision Cine 230 Projector Sweepstakes

Our biggest sweepstakes ever—up for grabs is a single M-Vision Cine 230 DLP projector from Digital Projection, valued at $6995! As readers of, and know, the ultimate home-theater experience can only be achieved with a front projector firing onto a big screen, which can produce a much larger and more immersive image than any flat panel. Unfortunately, this is also the most expensive type of display system—that is, unless you're the winner of our latest sweepstakes!

The M-Vision Cine 230 is a single-chip DLP projector from one of the most respected high-end manufacturers in the world. It's 1920x1080 resolution is illuminated with a 230-watt UHP lamp to achieve a maximum light output of 1000 lumens and a native contrast ratio of 3000:1, and it will fill a screen up to 10 feet wide in a darkened room. This home-cinema projector provides an advanced video processor, and installation is very flexible with a compact and lightweight chassis, horizontal and vertical lens shift, 1.85-2.40 lens zoom, and wireless IR and RS-232 control.

Hey, I'm about to build a new house with a dedicated home theater. This projector would be an extremely nice piece to have for it.

I was just looking at replacing my Panasonic PT-AX100. Although, it will never happen, as I happen to be most most unlucky person ever when it comes to this sort of thing.

maximum light output of 1000 lumens and a native contrast ratio of 3000:1

is it just my misunderstanding, but isn't 1000 lumens and a contrast ratio of 3000:1 kinda low?

I would LOVE to win this projector! I have been very impressed by LCOS & newer LCD projectors, but remain partial to DLP and DP is my brand of choice, so if I'm a winner, then it will be a perfect match.

ahearst's picture

I know how fortunate I am to own ANY projector and despite its flaws my AX-100 has peformed well beyond my expectations and I've been truly fortunate to have not experienced the littany of problems some have had with it. That said, I know I'm in need of an upgrade but can't afford to do so right now, that's why if I were lucky enough to win this contest my wife and I would be two of the happiest people on earth bar none!
