Epson EMP-TW520

Praxis-Test: Quick-Check Beamer: Epson EMP-TW520


Gute Heimkino-Beamer sind erstens teuer und zweitens nur mit Fachwissen zu optimaler Bildqualität zu bewegen. Erfreulicherweise widerspricht Epsons EMP-TW520 dieser meist zutreffenden Aussage in beiden Punkten deutlich.

Sehr viele Anschlüsse ; Einfachen Handhabung ; Lens-Shift ; Automatische Irisblende

Schwacher De-Interlacer

Wer mit wenigen Einstellungen ein Top-Bild haben will und sich erst nach und nach in die Beamer-Materie einarbeitet, bekommt mit dem Epson EMP-TW520 den idealen Projektor. Als Fernseherersatz taugt er allerdings kaum.
