The Diamond HC9000D was Mitsubishi's first 3D-capable projector, released earlier this year. The company recently added a step-down model (the HC7800D) and decided to lower the MSRP of the HC9000D from its original MSRP of $9,995 to $5,995. We have not performed a hands-on review of the HC9000D, but here is an overview of its features. This 1080p projector uses SXRD technology (a form of LCoS, or liquid crystal on silicon) and features Silicon Optix's ReonVX video processor, an auto iris to improve contrast, two anamorphic picture modes, and a 120Hz refresh rate with de-judder technology. It has a quoted dynamic contrast ratio of 150,000:1 and a quoted brightness of 1,000 ANSI lumens. The HC9000D supports a tabletop or ceiling-mount setup, as well as a front- or rear-projected image. It offers motorized 1.8x zoom and focus controls, 100 percent vertical lens shifting, 45 percent horizontal lens shifting, keystone correction, and adjustable feet. The HC9000D measures 18.9 x 20.8 x 7.8 inches, weighs 33 pounds, and uses a 230-watt lamp, with a listed lamp life of 4,000 hours in Low mode.
