Samsung SP-A800B 1080p Projector

Samsung announced during InfoComm 2008 that its SP-A800B 1080p front projector is now available for purchase throughout the US. Chris Franey, VP of Marketing and Commercial Sales, was very pleased that C|NET gave the SP-A800B a 9 out of 10, which is one of the best ratings for any product and is given very infrequently. Simply put the SP-A800B had a dual combination of excellent scaling and lens that resulted in images with very high resolution.

Here’s a quote from the C|NET review:

This [Blu-ray disk of The Departed] also showed off the SP-A800B’s 1080p resolution unmarred because of its competent scaling, and preserved by an excellent lens, both of which are common problems that rob a significant amount of resolution from many of the competing projectors I’ve seen in this price range.
