  • The Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 750HD is an interesting proposition. While some users will be quick to write it off as a low-resolution alternative to the entry-level 1080p projectors in the marketplace, it distinguishes itself in several ways. It offers the best color available at its price point, it has full 3D capability, and it has more light output than either of its main competitors. This makes it a force to be reckoned with in the living room.


  • The Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 750HD offers only 720p native resolution, but it also delivers guaranteed rainbow-free images in 2D and 3D, and it comes with one pair of 3D glasses.
