InFocus ScreenPlay 5000 LCD Projector Review

2 September 2005
  • Conclusion: I can't say it enough - the ScreenPlay 5000 is a torch. I have seen better black levels in a projector, but I have had to sacrifice ambient light capability every time. There are some improvements that could certainly be made in this unit to be sure. I'd love to see better containment of light from the projector so that leakage is not a problem. The fan could indeed be quieter and there really needs to be an M1 cable or adapter sold with each unit.
  • Pros: Excellent color detail, This projector is a TORCH and can play visible content in a fully-lit room, Backlit remote control, Direct access to inputs from remote, Automatic Vertical Keystoning is nifty
  • Cons: Fan noise (~58db at the source), Manual zoom & focus, Needs long throw distance or smaller screen for best picture, No lens shift, Poor deinterlacing

CHIP Online
22 November 2005
  • Excerpt: Mit dem HD-ready Beamer verspricht Infocus noch mehr Nervenkitzel im Heimkino. Im Test zeigte der preiswerte Bildwerfer fein durchgezeichnete Filmbilder mit enormem Kontrast – und das für relativ günstige 1.000 Euro.
  • Pros: Sehr preiswert, Einfache Handhabung, Gutes Heimkinobild
  • Cons: Lüfter zu laut, Farbverfälschungen, Wenig Ausstattung
