The Projector People are at it again, this time serving up some 1080p projection at a very attractive price.
The model is Mitsubishi’s HC5500 LCD projector, featuring full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080. ProjectorPeople.com has a nice $500 rebate that lowers the price to $1,995, and when you do the “click for our price” thing it gets dropped to $1,695—not a bad way to enter the 1080p projection fray.
Here are some other tasty specs for the HC5500:
- 1200 lumens brightness
- 14000:1 contrast ratio
- Hollywood Quality Video (HQV) processing
- 19 dBA super-quiet noise level
- Motorized up-down 50% lens shift
- 2-year warranty
Inputs include a pair of HDMI 1.3 ports, plus component, S-video, composite, and RS-232 serial input.
The projector weighs 12.3 pounds, and can produce an image 50 to 250 inches. The mail-in rebate offer is good through December 31, 2008, so you can go ahead and add it to the holiday shopping list.
