Epson EMP-TW1000 review

 

It's Full HD performance on a budget

Beautiful colour ; Impressive detail ; Flexible configuration

Disappointing black level ; No HD aspect-ratio selection

Despite its Full HD billing, pictures could be better. But you'll still struggle to beat it at this price

Epson EMP-TW1000 Projector

 

Can this LCD projector hold its own in a fiercely competitive, full HD arena?

A scan down the TW1000's specifications sheet reveals some impressive numbers. For as well as that crucial full HD pixel count of 1,920 x 1,080, there's a huge claimed contrast ratio of 12,000:1, and a high (for this price point) maximum brightness...

Epson EMP-TW1000

 

Not as capable as we'd have expected. You can do better for this money

Easy to set-up and use; short-throw design is living-room friendly

Image is well behind the best for black depth and colour realism

Epson EMP–TW1000 review

 

There’s no doubting either the style or usability of this LCD–based projector. The TW1000 looks gorgeous and will suit any gadget fan who likes their kit to look special as well as serve up the requisite tech treats. And there’s plenty of substance to...

For all the good looks and tidy spec sheet, the Epson does lack when it comes to the deeper blacks offered by the other LCD on test, the Sony, as well as the best of the DLP models, the InFocus and Sanyo. Once scenes get dark, you’ll be peering and...

Epson TW1000

 

In its favour, the TW1000 features an attractive, contoured design finished in two-tone black. And, it's one of the most versatile and easiest projectors to set up using simple manual lens shifts for both vertical and horizontal control with useful...

Attractive design, easy to set up, clean and detailed images

Comparably expensive, poor black levels and contrast

Epson EMP-TW1000 1080p LCD Projector

 

It looks as though 1080P projectors have been a bit like your local buses, you know you wait for what seems an age for them to arrive and then three turn up at once. ThatÂ's certainly been the case these last two months within the AVForums review room,...

Epson EMP-TW1000

 

Already known for its burgeoning line-up of beamers, in the growing community of 1080p front projectors Epson is a new kid on the block. Epson may be fresh faced, but it has also come up with one of the cheapest of all the Full HD models out there

Great value for money, Pleasing HD images

Too much picture noise, Little shadow detail

Not perfect but good value for money for anyone investing in next-generation discs

Epson EMP-TW1000

 

Full HD at this price represents remarkable value. Impressive picture quality let down only by slight black level and motion blur issues ..

The Epson EMP-TW1000 has more accomplished rivals in the Full HD projector arena, but LCD technology has never before come this good at this price.

Epson EMP-TW1000 LCD Projector Review

 

With our third 1080P projector review in as many months, can Epson's new bargain price unit live with the big boys?

Great value for money ; Excellent image depth and black level ; Full calibration controls ; Easy to use menu system and good build quality

Lack of HDMI inputs ; 1080/24 not supported

Epson EMP-TW1000 Review - LCD Projectors

 

epson emp-tw1000 review: It may lack luxury functions, extended connectivity and the inky blacks of pricier models, but this is well offset by beautiful HD pictures, extended lens shift and ultra-short throw capabilities.

Vivid colours, Judder-free, 3D-like HD visuals, Wide zoom and lens shift, 24Hz 1080p, Affordable

Slightly soft standard-definition pictures, Manual lens adjustments, Single HDMI

It may lack luxury functions, extended connectivity and the inky blacks of pricier models, but this is well offset by beautiful HD pictures, extended lens shift and ultra-short throw capabilities.
