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.

I've enjoyed Home Theater magazine for several years. You have helped me stay up with changing technology and features. You have also helped me make educated audio purchases. I am looking to replace my CRT with my first flat panel and will turn to your on-line buyer's guide (and Mark's book) for guidance (not to mention your Top Picks).
Or you can save me some time and just ship me the Cine 230 projector. :)

Thanks for the informative review, Scott. Unfortunately, I can't use the words exquisite, gorgeous, excellent, or superb to describe my current display. So, I'll try my luck at getting a Cine 230 to replace it.
