Mitsubishi-HC7800D-3D-Projector-review-angled.jpgHigh Points
• The HC7800D is a 3D-capable 1080p DLP projector. It uses active 3D technology and has 2D-to-3D conversion.
• The projector has an auto iris to improve black level and contrast ratio.
• 120Hz technology is available for blur and judder reduction.
• It has dual HDMI inputs, as well as two 12-volt triggers, an RS-232 port, and a LAN port for network control.
• The projector offers a thorough assortment of picture adjustments, including ISF Day and Night modes.
• Two anamorphic picture modes are available.
• The 3D sync emitter is included in the package.

Low Points
• The HC7800D has limited vertical lens shifting and no horizontal lens shifting, and the zoom/focus controls are manual, not motorized.
• The package does not include 3D glasses, and Mitsubishi's glasses are more expensive than average.
• Mitsubishi uses IR instead of RF for its sync emitter.

Competition and Comparison
Compare the Mitsubishi HC7800D with its competition by reading the reviews for the JVC DLA-X3, Optoma HD8300, Optoma HD33, and Panasonic PT-AE7000U. Learn more about 3D Projectors by visiting our Video Projectors section.

Conclusion
In some respects, the HC7800D is a more intriguing 3D option than Mitsubishi's previous HC9000D. It's less expensive, it has a higher brightness rating (which is important for 3D), and it includes the 3D emitter in the package. This projector can't quite compete with similarly priced LCD models in the spec department, but it should give DLP fans a reason to be excited, as it strikes an excellent balance between price and features in the DLP realm.
