Mitsubishi HC 5500

Televisions.com
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. The Mitsubishi HC 5500 provides natural colors and first-rate video processing, and, in view of the excellent price, it's easy to forgive the slightly elevated black level.
  • Pros: Flexible positioning., First-rate video processing., Excellent 24p playback., Quiet ventilation.
  • Cons: Average contrast., Red fringing during motion.

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. Throw in a long-life lamp of up to 5000 hours with an an easy-to-use, comprehensive user menu, and all the makings of a sure-fire winner are firmly in place.
  • 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 offers a degree of user functionality that’s rarely seen, with a comprehensive variety of one-touch button controls, At 19dBA in Low mode, you'll barely know the projector is ...
  • 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 adjustment control while in Step mode, While not the slickest, most striking looking projector, being that it's black, it will blend seamlessly into any room in the house

  • Conclusion: Not only has the Mitsubishi HC5500 proven to be an excellent Home Theater projector, but it is exceptional as a primary gaming display in any setting. With units likely priced to move due to Mitsubishi mothballing the model, purchasing one of the remaining new HC5500 models from a retailer would not be the worst thing you will do in your lifetime.

Mitsubishi HC5500 review

expertreviews.co.uk
19 December 2008
  • Excerpt: Mitsubishi's LCD projector comes in a small but solidly built black case with smooth curves and a business-like design. It's smaller and lighter than most of the 1080p projectors here, but the case is 352mm deep and may not fit on a shelf. Setup is also tricky, as it has only vertical lens shift, so it'll need to be placed directly in front of the screen.

Test: Mitsubishi HC5500 (Heimkino-Beamer)

CHIP Online
20 October 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. Dafür ist das Geräusch mit 0,9 Sone flüsterleise, so dass auch ruhige Filmpassagen nicht durch Lüfterrauschen gestört werden.
  • Pros: Tolles Deinterlacing, Gutes Bild, Sehr leise
  • Cons: Zu hoher Stromverbrauch im Standby, Schlechte Durchzeichnung bei Blu-ray-Discs

  • 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. Il donne ses meilleurs résultats dans l'obscurité.
  • 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

1 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. Der leichte erhöhte Schwarzwert lässt sich angesichts des Preises verschmerzen.

  • 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 ...

三菱入门型1080P家用投影机HC5500评测

12 August 2008
  • 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。 既然变焦镜头只有1.2倍,其广角端和远摄端的流明输出变化不大。镜头从广角端移动到远摄端,流明输出减少约5%。 ANSI对比度测得为260:1,和我们在其它1080p性能级别LCD投影机上测得的数据一致。 结论...
