ViewSonic Cine5000 DLP Projector: On the Bench

  • $1,999 (est. street price)
  • 1280x768 single-chip DLP
  • Key Connections: One HDMI input
Features We Like: Faroudja processing

Features We Miss: Even at this price, more digital video inputs, please!

The inexorable march of 720p projectors (OK, 768 if you're counting) into previously unheard of price points continues, led here by ViewSonic. Yeah, we all remember ViewSonic's Buick-sized CRT computer monitors, but this sweet little DLP has got HDMI and Faroudja processing for a street price of two grand. Pick up the March issue of HT to see if the ViewSonic makes the grade.
