Mitsubishi HC 5500

19 March 2012
  • Conclusion: Apart from a few small problems, the overall message is clear: Never before could you get so much projector for so little money.

Mitsubishi HC5500 Home Theater Video Projector Review

Projector US
22 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Based on price and performance – limited zoom lens and lack of a horizontal lens shift notwithstanding – the HC5500 from Mitsubishi scores very high marks for image quality that benefits from some top-notch video processing that this 1080p projector takes full advantage of.
  • Pros: Full HD, 1080p (1920 x 1080) resolution delivers exceptional image quality, Motorized zoom, focus, and lens shift, Uses top-shelf video processing (HQV Reon-VX) and Auto-Iris algorithms that deliver vibrant colors and smooth video transitions, Dual HDMI 1.3 inputs with Deep Color, Remote control ...
  • Cons: Limited zoom lens (1.2:1) and lack of a horizontal lens shift require a little extra work during set-up, but this is something you'll probably only need to do once, Motorized zoom, focus, and lens shift could be deemed somewhat of an acquired taste, but it does offer a greater degree of adjustmen...

HC 5500

27 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Trotz ein paar kleiner Fehler ist klar: Noch nie gab es soviel Projektor für so wenig Geld: Der 1.500 Euro teure Mitsubishi HC 5500 begeistert vor allem mit seinen natürlichen Farben und der erstklassigen Videoverarbeitung – hier übertrifft er den 500 Euro teureren Vorgänger HC 4900.

CHIP Online
23 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Der Mitsubishi-Projektor HC5500 bietet eine insgesamt sehr gute Bildqualität – vor allem sein Deinterlacing überzeugt im Test. Der hohe Stromverbrauch im Standby verdient allerdings Kritik.
  • Pros: Tolles Deinterlacing, Gutes Bild, Sehr leise

  • Summary: Ce vidéoprojecteur permet d'obtenir une belle image très colorée et contrastée pour un prix abordable. Pour les plus exigeants, notamment sur de la simple définition, les détails de cette image sont malheureusement un peu trop surfaits. Le traitement numérique est parfois visible.
  • Pros: Les noirs intenses, Définition de l’image HD, Le silence, Double HDMI, Lens Shift vertical, Rapport qualité/prix, Compatible 24p
  • Cons: Pas de lens Shift horizontal, Désentrelacement, Iris un peu plus bruyant que sur le HC6500, Champ infrarouge limité

  • Conclusion: Tykki erottuu edukseen heti päälle kytkemisen jälkeen, sillä hiljainen käyntiääni ei häiritse kriittistäkään katsojaa. Asennuksessa tulee kuitenkin huomioida Mitsubishin rajallinen zoom, jonka takia tykki pitää asentaa usein suoraan katselupaika ...
  • Pros: Hiljainen, Luonteva liiketoisto, Skaalain
  • Cons: Kontrasti

  • Conclusion: 性能记录 流明读数。在其视频优化后的配置下,镜头在广角极限位置,gamma模式设置为Cinema并且色温为Warm,我们测得HC5500测试样机的流明输出为610 ANSI流明,相比之下HC4900为560流明。因此,在我们的测试样机上,测得亮度的增加为大约9%。 低灯泡模式在所有运行模式下都会将亮度输出降低26%,并且将灯泡寿命由2000小时延长至5000小时。鉴于替换灯泡价格为459美元,那些在自己的投影机上花费大量时间的用户会发现这种将灯泡寿命延长至5000小时的能力是个值得期待的选项。...
