Conclusion: The Mitsubishi HC 1500 cannot, admittedly, do everything. But it does provide more-than-acceptable HDMI performance for the price. Decent colors and bright pictures mean this versatile projector appeals to a wide audience, but discerning home-theater fans will probably prefer the HC 4900. 1x 1x
Pros: Excellent color reproduction., Powerful light output., Accepts Scart-RGB signals.
Cons: Average contrast., Irritating noise from the color wheel at 60 hertz., Juddering 24p playback.
Excerpt: We absolutely jumped at the chance to get a very close look at the new Mitsubishi HC1500 DLP projector since we missed the boat on checking out the HD1000U which preceded it. The attraction is a clean system that handles up to 720p for less than $1000. This projector is worth a serious look.
Pros: 1080p/60 support, Main menu shows input signal resolution, RS-232C control, Excellent color, Good out-of-the-box performance
Cons: No 480i support over HDMI, Significant rainbow effect, Default Sharpness setting too high, Can crush blacks if not careful
