Compact, nice colour

S-Video lacking in detail, no automatic lens shift

The Screenplay 5000 is a fine projector in spite of a handful of niggling foibles. Worth a look.

InFocus ScreenPlay 5000 LCD Projector Review


The InFocus ScreenPlay 5000 is a veritable 'torch'. The amount of light this little projector throws is nothing short of astounding, but there are some drawbacks as well.

Excellent color detail ; This projector is a TORCH and can play visible content in a fully-lit room ; Backlit remote control ; Direct access to inputs from remote ; Automatic Vertical Keystoning is nifty

Fan noise (~58db at the source) ; Manual zoom & focus ; Needs long throw distance or smaller screen for best picture ; No lens shift ; Poor deinterlacing

Auto-keystoning very handy ; High quality images

Aesthetically unpleasant ; No presets for the visually lazy
