Every year at CES I seem to take an appointment about a promising product with a company that hasn’t quite hit the mainstream yet. My surprise last-minute appointment at the 2010 CES was with the folks at Vivitek to take a look at their new lineup of projectors. After looking over their entire lineup, what caught my eye was the Vivitek 1080FD Home theater projector, which promised top-tier performance for a sub $1,000 price. We were able to test the unit over the summer to see if it lived up to expectation as a Home Theater projector and capable of being a high-end gaming projector as well.
