Mitsubishi HC3


Business LCD projectors that can pull double-duty for home entertainment purposes are becoming commonplace. Mitsubishi has a unique spin with its Mitsubishi HC3: It's an HDTV home theater projector that can also handle business chores.

Mitsubishi HC3


Ok, with that introduction, here are the basics on the HC-3 projector. It is rated 1300 lumens with a contrast ratio of 500:1. The LCD's are "1/4" HDTV" resolution: 960x540. That's a bit higher than most low cost HT projectors which are mostly WVGA...

Best, brightest image for watching sports, TV, gaming Extremely dynamic colors Very good color accuracy Able to handle rooms that aren't fully darkened - a family room/multipurpose room projector Great menu layout, and easy to use Higher resolution...

Noisier than most, may be noticeable on quiet movies, fine on TV/sports, etc. Unimpressive remote layout Lacking the ability to have a component video and a computer source hooked up at the same Lacking in shadow detail (ties to low contrast ratio)

The remote did not thrill me, but the bigger issue is the lack of one more input. You cannot have both a computer source and a component video source hooked up at the same time. That means that gamers are probably going to have to rely on S-video...

Mitsubishi HC3 Home Theater Projector Review


The "entry level" home theater market is expanding rapidly and being fueled by a variety of new and inexpensive projectors that are remarkably high in performance for the money. Among those worthy of particular attention is the Mitsubishi HC3 Colorview...

Every projector has advantages and limitations. And every projector has an "ideal" set up that takes maximum advantage of its strengths and minimizes or neutralizes its shortcomings. There is no such thing as a projector that is good for all situations
