    Canon introduced a new LCOS projector at the beginning of this year.
    In Europe its called the Xeed SX50, in the US it's called Realis SX50.

    The specs sound good, but I was wondering if anyone has any experience with it?

    Edit: I wanted to provide links to the Canon product page, but I was not allowed to. So you'll have to search for yourself.

    Hmm, no one has heard of it? It was reviewed in the June issue of Presentations, a magazine about everything related to - guess what - presentations. But they focused more on the computer display aspects. I was wondering how this projector would do for movies.

    If I remember, I saw a review on Projector Central that said it's a great little data projector, but it had a number of clunky issues for home-theater use.

    Lack of inputs was one, and I think there were some arguments against the images - color, linearity, or something, I don't remember what.

    I saw one at the Canon booth of a trade show in April; it's an excellent looking data projector, and quite inexpensive for what it is.

    I haven't seen a real video feed to it, though.
