Mike's trip to CES 2001

Page 1 | Page 2

Sorry guys... I am not going to do a nice write-up. I really rushed through the show this year, as I wanted to see a little bit of everything. I could've spent probably a full day at each of the big companies booths, but since I didn't... I just snapped some shots of the things I thought were interesting in their own way.

It seemed there was alot of "me too" this year. Everyone getting into LCD/DLP projectors, mobile video, etc. A few quick comments off the top of my head... Sanyo really seems to be going strong with their new projectors, Alpine is going nuts with a lot of nice new products, new Marantz stuff looks very nice. Oh yea, quite a bit of "new" products for recording HD. One problem though, isn't the "industry" trying to stop us from doing that before HDTV takes off?! (sigh)

Thanks to AV Science for giving many of the Forum members an opportunity to get together for dinner Sunday night... We had quite a group there, and I got to win a DVD at the event. (grin)
