Samsung SP-A600 Home Theater Projector

We have covered quite a few home theater projectors in recent weeks and
it certainly seems as if their marketers are going into overdrive to get
the word out. The most recent projectors from Samsung were the high-end
SP-A800 and SP-A900 full-HD models and the time has come for another.
Samsung has decided to use their time at this year's CEDIA show in
Atlanta to formally unveil their new SP-A600 home theater projector and
given its price point I think it couldn't have come at a better time.
There really isn't too much information available just yet on the newest
Samsung high-definition home theater projector. It offers full HD at
1080p using Samsung's typically good DLP technology. It offers a maximum
brightness of 1000 Lumens at a dynamic contract ratio of 3000:1. The
220W lamp is listed as having a 4,000-hr lifetime in eco mode or
3,000-hrs in bright mode. This isn't all that impressive and breaks down
to only 2,000 2-hr long movies in the best case. If you're a movie nut
like me, you easily watch five to seven movies a week at home and with
this projector at maximum brightness I'd have to change out the bulb
every seven months.
The Samsung SP-A600 has two HDMI ports, composite, component, and
S-video inputs and I wouldn't expect to get a massive projection size
with the short-throw, 1.99 ratio lens. It should be more than adequate
for most home theaters, though. The SP-A600 is expected to become
available any day now with an MSRP of $1,795.
