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...

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 - 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.

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 EMP TW1000 & TW2000


There really is nothing like a big screen to gaze on to really get that whole cinema experience. As far as I'm concerned, LCD's and Plasma TV's can be damned unless they're showing me a picture as big as a projector can.

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
