The Mitsubishi HC6800 is a solid, well-constructed projector being offered at a fair price. The HC6800 has an array of features that will match perfectly with the needs/interests of many buyers, especially those interested in 2.40 widescreen installations. I did not want it to be brighter, and I did not want it to be higher in contrast. Overall, the picture was beautifully balanced and natural, and a genuine pleasure to watch. Those who end up owning the HC6800 will enjoy it thoroughly.
The Mitsubishi HC6800 (MSRP, $3,495, official street price $2,495) The HC6800 delivers a beautiful, sharp, natural video image with very little digital noise. It is not leading edge in terms of contrast, and it lacks frame interpolation, which several 1080p models in its price range now have. But it has a 1.6x powered zoom and focus lens that several competing units don’t have. That feature can help eliminate the need for an anamorphic lens for those who want to set up a 2.40 widescreen system. The HC6800 also has almost zero fan noise, extensive calibration controls, and a better than average warranty.
