The replacement for the very popular Mitsubishi HC5500, having taken a look at the Mitsubishi HC3800 we were impressed with the results.

Out of the box, the HC3800 chassis is noticeably smaller than rival entry level 1080p boxes. Connections wise only one hdmi input (most other models around this price point have 2) but if you are using an AV receiver or only looking to connect one piece of equipment using HDMI then 1 input is fine. All other standard video connections are catered for.

Zoom range on the Mitsubishi HC3800 is impressive however the lack of lens shift made it tricky for us to fill the screen from our standard throw distance of 3mtr. The onboard keystone adjustment did allow us to fill the screen.

A couple of the guys here are prone to the rainbow effect but both of them struggled to see any signs of it unless really forcing themselves to find it (and no one is going to watch a film forcing themselves to see the rainbow effect). They both agreed it was the best entry level DLP 1080p projector.
