Excellent color and overall image quality, after calibration. Most folks looking primarily for movie watching will find it an excellent fit ; Brighter than most 1080p projectors when comparing "best" color modes ; Extremely sharp image ; Very good...

Somewhat below average brightness in "brightest" mode, may be a limit to those wanting larger screens (larger than 110" diagonal), or those who heavily watch sports with moderate, intentional, ambient light ; Cannot match the black level performance of...

If you plan to buy your projector through your local dealer, and the HC6500 is in your budget, it certainly should be one to consider. While it won't measure up to Mitsubishi's new HC7000 (a safe bet), or some of the new models yet to be released (the...

Mitsubishi HC6500 LCD Projector


If you're looking for a projector that's quiet as a mouse, Mitsubishi has the answer.

For starters, the HC6500 proves exceptionally easy to set up thanks to fully motorised (and superbly flexible) zoom, focus and vertical image shifting tools, together with plenty of keystone correction - all accessible from the remote control. You even...

Mitsubishi HC6500


Mitsubishi has delivered a top-notch sub-$5000 HD projector with the HC6500. It's a noticeable improvement over its predecessors and a serious contender at this hotly-contested 1080p projection price point.

Deep blacks for an LCD ; Natural looking colours and skintones ; Flexible placement ; Whisper quiet

Needs proper calibration ; Stiff competition

Conclusion A lovely full HD projector, the HC6500 proves an excellent all-round performer for the money. Blacks impress and you'd have to spend much more to better them, plus for a natural and vivid picture quality, this Mitsubishi's one of the best...

Mitsubishi HC6500


The Mitsubishi HC6500 is a piece of cutting-edge projector technology that splatters huge, 1080p images on your wall. You just have to ask it nicely, and feed it right…

Barely noticeable fan noise, vivid HD images

Standard-definition suffers in comparison to HD pictures

The Mitsubishi HC6500 dishes out sharp, colourful images from its cutting-edge LCD chipset. Impressive.

Domo arigato, Mitsubishi-san! Top Japanese build quality plus attention to detail and powered everything make the HC6500 a very flexible projector indeed. Now if we just promise to use Mitsubishi power stations for our next public infrastructure...

Mitsubishi HC6500


Pure silence. Funny to say it's the lack of noise that stands out but it's so quiet you actually notice, if you see what I mean:) Great picture, blacks are black as I can expect at this price point.

A white case would have been nice, it would blend in better.

Product Specifications

And that's exactly what you'll find in the HC6500 home theater projector. Exquisite colors, high-contrast images and impressive picture reproduction are ensured with Mitsubishi's innovative hybrid D6 drive and Auto Iris 15000:1 high-contrast technologies. These and other advanced functions are packaged into an ergonomic and aesthetically pleasing chassis that blends easily with any room environment. In a single word, it's "Futuristic". Astoundingly beautiful color reproduction is what the HC6500 offers thanks to the incorporation of the auto-Iris control algorithm - a feature commonly found in higher priced models. The technology has been evolved to be faster and more accurate, and now provides picture reproduction at a maximum high-contrast ratio of 15000:1. The light intensity of the pixel level for each image displayed on the screen is calculated precisely so that dark scenes are toned down to the appropriate black level even when scene sequences continuously switch between bright and dark images. This ensures the faithful reproduction of every scene detail with vivid clarity. Combined with Mitsubishi's original contrast control function, auto-Iris delivers the richest blacks, the brightest whites, and the vivid richness of every color in between. The HC6500 can play signals from most media, including the next-generation Blu-ray 24P optical disk. Compatible with an output of up to 48P (96Hz liquid crystal panel driver), twice the speed of conventional movie signals, amazingly life-like images and motion are reproduced with a smoothness and texture detail that mirror the original. The Mitsubishi HC6500 is designed to match the needs of the most sophisticated home theater, yet can be quickly integrated into the simplest of entertainment systems as well. A trigger connector for controlling a powered-screen drive is included, enabling quick set-up and operation and contributing further to your home theater enjoyment experience.
