Best Projector $3500-$10,000+ (Tie): JVC's DLA-X70R and Sony's VPL-VW95ES.

Projector Reviews also determined several Best In Class Runner-Up awards, including Panasonic's PT-AE7000 and BenQ's W7000.

Editor Art Feierman had this to say about the crop of projectors considered:

"This past year has been an exceptional one in terms of the number of 'all new' projectors, and the number of significantly improved projectors. Of particular note, there are a lot more very bright projectors suitable for family rooms and living rooms. This year, people are getting a whole lot more bang for their buck."

Art Feierman also commented on the exciting rise of 3D's presence in the report:

"3D is happening with home theater projectors. Most over $2000 new models offer 3D capability. And they can really dazzle.

"We want everyone to know that projector based 3D at home is a whole different world than on a 42" LCDTV, and typically even blows away your average local 3D theater. That is to say, truly awesome. This year, we're really trying to make our readers aware of how great home 3D is when you are truly immersed by using projector."
