Yamaha HDMI Projector


Yamaha announced its so-called mid-range home projector yesterday—only $4,200. But it's got the goods: native 720p outfitted with the TI DarkChipII DLP tech.

And if you've got the $12,495 to spare, you might just as well upgrade to the DX-1300. It's a DarkChip3 DLP with a 5:000-to-1 contrast ratio.
