Epson EMP-TW1000

 

The EMP-TW1000 is a Full HD unit, with a native 16:9 resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels

Beautiful colour, Impressive detail, Flexible configuration

Disappointing black level, No HD aspect-ratio selection

The black-level limitations can perhaps be overlooked with this in mind, especially when the feature-set, input flexibility, excellent colour fidelity and potential for true-to-life detail are also factored in. This unit should definitely be on the...

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

The new no-frills 1080p projector champion is here! Read on and find out why we feel Epson may have a promising star under its belt.

Vivid colors; judder-free, 3D-like HD visuals; bright; future-proofed; wide zoom and lens shift; 24Hz 1080p; affordable

Slightly soft standard-definition pictures; manual lens adjustments; single HDMI; Japanese-centric D4 jack

The Epson EMP-TW1000 lacks luxury functions and inky blacks but excels in the basics, critical for truly theatrical home entertainment in our space-conscious Asian quarters.

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.

Expert review by:

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
