Until recently, movie fans on the go had to shell out a few grand for laptop computers with DVD playback capability. Such units typically weigh a several pounds and offer far more functionality than movie fans need.
Not too long ago you had to fork over a grand or more for a high-performance DVD player. Pioneer has just sliced that ticket by more than half with their new DV-525, a player sporting 10-bit video processing and internal 24-bit/96-kilohertz digital-to-analog converters. The $425 player is said to offer "twice the picture quality of a VCR" and options "usually reserved for players costing much more."

Last year, Plus Corporation of America rocked the home theater world with the introduction of the Plus "Piano" HE-3100, a compact DLP video projector with great specifications. Home Theater's Mike Wood gave the little projector two thumbs up, saying all the right compromises were made to get it to market at a ground-breaking price of $3000 retail.
