Accurate color out of the box
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.
Very good overall color
The Home Cinema 3020 and 3020e are the only 3D capable LCD home projectors on the market under $2500! That means they get to take on a whole bunch of DLP projectors as the competition. With one or two exceptions, the Epson has those DLP's beat. Not at everything, but at so many things, that it's really no contest. So far, the best of the DLP competition under $2000 are the Acer and the BenQ W7000.
Accurate picture in 2D and much improved 3D performance
The Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 3020e is a great update to last year's Home Cinema 3010, correcting that projector's flaws and adding some new features all its own. With a bright, accurate picture in 2D and much improved 3D performance, the 3020e is a strong contender in the home video space that is both powerful and budget-friendly.
Very good projector, but consider saving $500 with the non-wireless version
This projector is lacking when compared to others on the market, but when you take its price into consideration, it is a great value. This is true whether you compare it to high-performance video projectors or to larger screen displays that are big enough to be a feasible replacement (70", 84", or larger). This projector is simple to use, looks great, does 3D very well, and costs considerably less than comparable displays or other projectors that perform as well.
Very good 3D Performance - minimal crosstalk or motion blur effects
If you do want something with the same performance capabilities at a lower price, for about $200 less, you can opt instead for the Epson 3020 (minus the "e") which is the same projector, but you have to give up the WirelessHD connection capability. The Epson 3020 is priced at $1,799.00 (Compare Prices).
Colors were grossly oversaturated, and skewed red
The Epson 3020e HD front projector at $1,899 represents a solid entry-level value that gives you more than enough bang for your buck, especially through authorized channels such as VisualApex, though it doesn't embarrass nor challenge the competition above its range. For what it is, it is good, and I believe that is the whole point, for your typical first-time buyer isn't going to be too consumed with matters of CMS or ultimate edge fidelity.
Achieves a large image from such a short distance from the screen
In conclusion, the Epson BrightLink 436Wi is a good choice for those looking for an affordable interactive projector that is easy to use and reliable. MSRP right now is $1490. When you consider how easy it is to get up and running quickly, along with the warranty and peace of mind that Epson provides in its customer service, the 436Wi is going to be a projector to give strong consideration.
Colors are eye catching, vibrant, and nicely saturated
The 436Wi offers more than enough to earn your attention if you're in the market for a 1280x800 interactive short throw projector. In addition to excellent data image quality, better than par video quality, and a suitably bright image, it offers a slew of welcome interactive features, including automatic calibration, the ability to use two pens simultaneously, and the PC-free mode that lets you interact with any image from any source or use the projector as a whiteboard.
Great color, high contrast, and excellent placement flexibility
The Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 5020UBe is the newest addition to the Epson home theater line, and it continues their tradition of fully-featured, high-value home theater projectors. Its bright picture combines deep contrast and vibrant color to create a picture that pops off of the screen, while its 3D performance has received a significant boost thanks to new RF-sync glasses.
Great color, high contrast, and excellent placement flexibility make the Epson 5020 series easy to like.
Brightness uniformity was exceptional
Epson's new VS220 is a versatile SVGA projector that suits both fixed and portable applications. It is small and light for a 2,700-lumen projector, and its data and video images are excellent for those environments where high resolution is unnecessary. It may not handle 3-D media, but it accommodates just about every other source in a classroom or conference room. At less than $400 street price, the VS220 represents a real value, and we give it our highest rating in that category.
A great value and a good performer
The Espon VS220 performs pretty well even in fairly bright rooms. Being a SVGA resolution, it's going to have some pixelation which won't make it completely ideal for use as a home theater projector,.,. but it will work and satisfy many people for that use. As a business presentation projector I think it will shine. Although it does not come with a carry bag of any sort, that's easy enough to rectify. It's easy to setup, light to carry and will server that purpose well.
Offers lower power usage and lower energy costs and at the same time delivers high quality resolution.
The overview of the Epson VS220 SVGA 3LCD Projector shows some stunning capabilities. It's design makes business presentations a snap. Every audience that has a view of this technology will surely appreciate the life-like images and crystal clear resolution that has made this projector a must have for anyone looking to make good solid impressions.
Colors were bright, vibrant, and well saturated in all preset modes
For anyone who needs an inexpensive projector, the Epson EX3212 offers a lot to like, starting with its excellent data image quality, above par video quality, and bright image. Only slightly less important are the wide range of brightness levels, a long lamp life, and the low price.
It helps too that it doesn't have any serious weaknesses. The back panel may not have all the connectors you'd like, for example, but it has all the ports you're likely to need.
Dynamic range has been improved
Panasonic has been making home theater projectors for many, many years. The AE series, of which the AE8000 is the latest edition, started with the AE100 way back in 2001 -- ancient history by today's standards. It is clear by now that they've gotten very good at it.
Last year's AE7000 was a big step forward over the previous AE4000.
Great Projector, but be aware of who you are buying it from
I love the projector, never-mind the 3D, it is not a subtle upgrade from the PT-AE4000. In terms of picture quality, everything is better - brightness, contrast, and clarity. It is actually bright enough that in a reasonably light controlled setting, you could run in ECO mode and be perfectly happy. Again, going from PT-AE4000 to the 8000 is well worth it. 3D seemed fine, just make sure that you purchase the correct 3D glasses as there are different versions, even within Panasonic.
It produces a bright, vibrant image with solid contrast
Shortly after buying my first front projector, an Epson, I made the leap to Panasonic and, for four years after my initial purchase, I bought the new model every year without fail. Had I not switched to JVC about five years ago, I could assume I'd probably be a Panasonic front-projection customer even today. But shaking things up has a way of changing one's perspective on things.
A full suite of inputs and outputs making it capable of just about anything
We congratulate Epson on their W16SK Dual Projector concept. It may not be the only passive solution possible, but it is well executed. The W16SK serves up exceptionally bright 2D and 3D performance combined with the strong value proposition, earns the W16SK a Hot Product Award. There's more! In this year's Education Projector report, the W16SK wins our Best In Classroom: 3D Projector award.
