Planar 7060


Planar is hardly a new company. They've been around for 20+ years or so, focusing on display systems. (I believe many of their folks originally came from Tektronics). As far as display systems go, I believe medical has been their primary specialty....

A very so, so User manual - first off, it only comes on disk. There is, though, a 12 page printed getting started guide. Alhough the manual is fairly comprehensive in terms of listing features, it is almost devoid of explanation - for example which is...

As noted, I do expect to get in, in the next few weeks, another 7060, with the fixed, production firmware, just to confirm confirm performance, take a 2nd look at shadow detail, and do some additional measurements/adjustments. Even with the work-around...

Planar PD7060 review


You probably haven't heard of Planar before. But on the evidence of the PD7060, you'll surely be hearing more about it in the future, for it's a really startling combination of high quality pictures and aggressive pricing that could well have more...

Remarkable value for such a good picture performer ; Nicely designed ; Well connected

You can occasionally see DLP's rainbow effect ; Not very quiet ; Doesn't particularly like low-quality sources

Conclusion While we had no reason to doubt that Planar knew its projection onions, frankly nothing could have prepared us for what a great job the PD7060 does of unleashing the full potential of HD material. So if you're looking for a flexible, great...
