The InFocus SP8602 is a big, bad home theater projector. It’s hanging from my ceiling, hooked up to a Harmon Kardon Blu-ray player and a TiVo HD. Needless to say, life is good at the Burns homestead. Click through for my initial impressions of this $5,000 1080p projector.
- Great color saturation
- Good – but not great – black levels
- Lots of detail
- Enough inputs
- It looks like a $5K projector
- Good remote
- Horrible film smoothing
- Manual lens controls are hidden under a panel – look nice, but hard to fine tune when you have to snap the panel back into place
Stay tuned for the full review. Any suggestions for test material?
