Mitsubishi HC6000

Mitsubishi today stepped up the quality of its HC projectors through the HC6000, the replacement for its top-end HC5000. The new 3LCD model improves contrast even further to achieve a 13,000:1 ratio -- the same as many better direct-view sets and enough for classic films and space scenes, according to Mitsubishi's claims. Dual HDMI inputs are equally rare and let the projector hook up to more than one 1080p source. The HC6000 uses the latest version of the Hollywood Quality Video chipset to help de-interlace video and upscale lower-resolution content up to a full HD resolution.

Estimates peg the lifespan of the projector's 1,000-lumen lamp at an above-average 5,000 hours when used in a low-power mode for dark home theaters. Swapping out the lamp is simple thanks to a mechanism that provides quick access without lifting the whole projector body, the company says. Shipments are slated to begin in October with pricing set "under $4,000" to appeal to a wider audience than past rivals.
