Projectors for Video Gaming
Pursuent to my poll question yesterday about whether or not you’ll be HD’ing it with the PS3, here’s something related you might be interested in.
Say you’re buying an Xbox 360 or a PS3, and you have the budget and space to buy yourself a projector. You want a really big screen to enjoy all that HD imagery. Who wouldn’t? So what projector do you buy, without totally breaking your bank.
Projector Central takes a look at two high performance projectors that would work great with your HD console. I’ve seen reviews of these, and they invariably come up positive. So I know these are good choices. But both that Sanyo PLV-Z3 (plus the newer PLV-Z4, which is a bit more expensive) (LCD) and the Optoma HD72 (DLP) are 720p designs. What to do if you want a 1080p projector.
Well, this is where you have to sell your car. Personally, I think that if you want a 1080p projector, that you should look no further than Sony’s VPL-VW100 SXRD projector, which retails for $10k. That’s way out of the range of most of us, but that’s the state of 1080p front projectors these days.
And if you’re not too picky about getting sets with 1080p inputs (or even resolution for that matter), check out HDBlog.net’s HD Buzz page for more suggestions.
