Samsung SP-A800B review: Samsung SP-A800B

 

Samsung SP-A800B

Extremely accurate color including spot-on color decoding for both SD and HD, nearly perfect primary colors, and linear grayscale tracking; superb black level and shadow detail performance; plenty of light output; excellent lens; solid feature package...

Black levels not as deep as some high-end projectors; no horizontal lens shift.

The Samsung SP-A800B delivers the most accurate color of any projector we've tested, and as a whole it outperforms every projector in its price range.

Samsung SP-A800B DLP Projector Overview

 

The new SP-A800B DLP projector from Samsung Electronics looks to be a nice addition to the 1080p DLP family, though it lacks some advanced features (like DarkChip3 or horizontal lens shift) we'd

Samsung SP-A800B 1080p DLP Video Projector - Product Review

 

Having had a chance to view the Samsung SP-A800B, and getting a thorough presentation from Joe Kane on the philosophy of its development and role in the home theater market, I must say that I was impressed with the final result, with just few caveats.

Samsung SP-A 800 B

 

Outstanding 24p picture., High contrast ratio., Sensational colours., Easy operation., Ultra-sharp zoom lens with lens-shift.

Weaknesses in 1080i de-interlacing., 480i/576i not possible via HDMI.

Our new reference projector! Why? Because the JKP-certified Samsung leaves the competition in the dust with its neutral pictures, pure colours, and excellent fine-detail reproduction. The versatile and precise lens-shift guarantees top HDTV quality,...

Samsung SP-A800B 1080p DLP Projector

 

There are two steps to high-end projection TV heaven. Step 1: get the latest projector that video guru and industry veteran Joe Kane helped design. Step 2: have Joe Kane personally install and set up/calibrate same, all the while telling you about the...

The SP-A800B is a textbook example of proper video design. All too often, video display engineers get a tad “creative,” looking for ways to differentiate their products, with the resulting efforts veering far from the established technical standards....

Samsung SP-A800B DLP Projector

 

Today, 720p is largely an afterthought in the projector market, and Samsung has moved on. The new SP-A800B is an up-to-the-minute 1080p, single-chip DLP design, built as before to reflect Kane's video priorities, including state-of-the-art color...

UltimateAVmag.com: Samsung SP-A800B DLP Projector

 

Samsung has an unusual history with high-definition video projectors. Its most recent 720p DLP model, designed in consultation with video expert Joe Kane, was superb, even standard-setting in many important respects. But dealers were rare, and worse,...

Samsung SP-A800B 1-Chip DLP Projector

 

Introduction Samsung first showed their latest flagship front projector, the SP-A800B, at last year's CEDIA show in September of 2007. Having used the previous 720p model, the SP-H710AE, as a reference for well over a year, I had very high expectations...
