by Editors of PCMag.com
Our AssessmentPCMag.com regularly covers digital projectors in single-product reviews and multi-projector roundups. Each digital projector is assigned a rating, and the top-performing projectors earn an Editors' Choice award. One negative is that many discontinued projectors appear in the listings; however, new products are reviewed in a relatively timely fashion. Reviews here are straightforward and include hands-on testing.
by Editors of ProjectorReviews.com
Our AssessmentProjectorReviews.com has commentaries and in-depth reviews on projectors for both home theater and business use. Reviews usually consume more than three pages of content. Projectors receive a summary evaluation, and pros and cons are discussed. Top-rated projectors receive a Hot Product designation. Business projector reviews have their review dates highlighted in green so you can easily find them, but you have to read the reviews to see which projectors are top-rated.
by Editors of PC World (Australia)

Features and value are also considered. A numerical rating is provided, so it's easy to see how the projectors compare to one another. There's a decent amount of recent reviews, though older reviews are slow to drop off this listing. Full reviews don't accompany every model listed here.
