NEC HT1000 Review


Last week NEC began shipping the HT1000, the company's first digital projection system built specifically for the consumer home theater market. We were extremely impressed with the pre-production model we evaluated in September, and we've now seen the...

If you have budgeted up to about $5,000 for your new projector, in terms of pure video quality for the dollar spent the NEC HT1000 and the Sanyo PLV-70 stand out as the two leading-edge home theater systems in that price range at the moment. Consider...
