Mitsubishi HC3000 review

 

Brings DLP within your reach

Good value

Not pretty ; Lacking in detail

For a DLP projector for under £2,000, this is a good effort

Mitsubishi Electric HC3000

 

Home Theatre projector prices have dropped quite dramatically in the last year and DLP projectors in particular have become very affordable. The Mits...

Superior colours, Rich blacks, Low heat emissions

Slightly overpriced, some noise in low grays

If you are in the market for a high quality cinema projector that is light weight, compact and delivers with fervor, this is the projector for you.

Mitsubishi HC3000

 

Despite limited installation flexibility, the Mitsubishi HC3000 is one of the best values in DLP front projectors available today.

Accurate colour decoding and primary colours ; Solid video processing ; Relatively inexpensive

No physical lens shift limits mounting flexibility ; Inaccurate out-of-the-box colour temperature ; Blacks not quite as rich as those of the best DLP projectors

The Mitsubishi HC3000 is yet another credible entry in the budget-priced DLP front-projector category that is increasingly filled with very competitive products. This little Mitsubishi has a lot to recommend it in terms of picture quality. Yes, the...

Mitsubishi HC3000 720p DLP Front Projector

 

In prehistoric times (that is, around 10 years ago), Mitsubishi made a variety of CRT rear-projection TVs that were really good values for the dollar. Now, those dinosaurs are nearly extinct, and the company has evolved into a premier digital-display...

The HC3000 is a very good performer when compared to other similarly priced LCD and DLP projectors. It is particularly impressive as far as color accuracy is concerned. A direct comparison to the Sharp XV-Z2000U makes sense as they are exactly the same...

Mitsubishi HC3000

 

Excellent overall image quality (after a basic, end user color calibration) ; Extremely good black levels (best I've seen, for it's price or less) ; Fairly bright in best modes ; Very good manual (a rarity) ; Good menus, almost all functionality on...

Limited range of zoom lens (typical for DLP projectors in this price range) ; No variable lens shift (also typical of under $2500 DLP projectors) ; Remote control's backlighting is dim, and hard to see in a dark room ; Lacking a second digital input...

So, having spoiled some of the surprise, it's time to get down to the heart of the review

Mitsubishi HC3000 Projector Review

 

The stealthy arrival of high-definition has seemingly caught DLP technology on the hop - and in doing so opened a window of opportunity for its LCD rival.

HD picture performance; quiet running in low lamp mode ;

Really ugly; rainbow effect; HD could look slightly sharper

The problem for DLP is that Texas Instruments has only relatively recently developed an affordable 16:9-ratio DLP chipset with the 720 lines (minimum) of resolution necessary to earn the HD Ready badge. These chipsets still demand more of a premium...

Mitsubishi HC3000 DLP Projector

 

The case in point here is Mitsubishi's HC3000 single-chip DLP projector. Its diminutive $2500 price tag doesn't buy you state-of-the-art performance, but it buys enough to leave this reviewer shaking his head in disbelief. I've been in home theater...

Mitsubishi HC3000 DLP Projector

 

As far as living with top shelf projectors is concerned, I've lived a charmed life over the last few years. Sony Qualia 004, JVC's 1080P D-ILA, premium single-chip and three-chip DLP projectors, I've lived with the best of the best. And yet, in spite...

Rich, natural, and dimensional image

No vertical lens shift

I didn't maintain much of a poker face with this review, as the enthusiasm of the opening paragraphs attests. Projectors in this price range typically have to cut corners, and this one is no different. Only Sony, with its 3LCD Cineza projectors, has...

Review: Mitsubishi HC3000

 

The Mitsubishi HC3000 home theater projector, one of the most highly anticipated new product releases of the season, has just begun to appear on dealer shelves. It has attracted a great deal of attention for two reasons: (1) it is the first DLP...

The Mitsubishi HC3000 may be viewed as a breakthrough product in the world of DLP technology for having pushed 1280x768 resolution to the lowest price points yet. The pixel matrix of 768 lines, which is rare at this time in home theater projectors,...

Product Specifications

The new standard for everyone who dreams of high-resolution pictures in greater depth: the Mitsubishi HC3000. Compatible with HDTV (High Definition Television) and equipped with the new Dark Chip 2 from Texas Instruments. Due to BrilliantColor technology, you can experience your movies in an excellent color reproduction, with deeper black levels and images that come to life in best dimensions. Together with 4000:1 contrast and 1000 ANSI lumens, these qualities add up to give you strikingly sharp and vibrant pictures true to every detail. At the same time, the HC3000 is surprisingly flexible. Its Digital Keystone Correction eliminates horizontal and vertical distortion. And since format makes a difference in home cinema, you have four options to choose from. The only point on which the HC3000 is unwilling to compromise is its trusted Mitsubishi quality: the lamps, for example, have a service life of up to 3000 hours. And you'll enjoy every minute.
