The TW20 is a good choice for the first-time home projector buyer.

Good entry-level home cinema projector ; Good integrated speaker

Not so good for games projection ; Slightly noisy operation

perfect first projector, but don't expect it to beat a HD or full HD projector.

good enough, easy to use projector

the 845 x 480 resolution is a b*tch, to bad it has no 1024 x 768 resolution

Product Specifications

Add a new dimension to watching movies at home with the Epson EMP-TW20. Now you can enjoy films, concerts, sport and more on a big screen. With Epson you don't need large rooms or a big budget to enjoy big screen entertainment. The small, sleek and stylish Epson EMP-TW20 can project an 80" image to a wall or screen from just 2 meters away. And if you do have more room you can sit back and admire images of up to 300". Play fast action video games on the big screen, create a larger-than-life family photo slide show, get a front row seat at televised concerts, or treat the children to movie theater-size cartoons. There's no need to draw the curtains to watch your favorite program. The brightness setting lets you enjoy quality images even in broad daylight. And whatever you watch, you're guaranteed natural, bright colors thanks to the exclusive Epson 3LCD technology and Epson Cinema Filter. Combined with a high contrast ratio, it gives crisp, bright, defined images. Six built-in settings automatically adjust the picture brightness and contrast levels depending on what you're watching, and all can be accessed via the remote control from the comfort of your armchair. The small, stylish Epson EMP-TW20 is easy to place almost anywhere. It can be off-center, high up or low down. Place it on a shelf, table or even mount it on the ceiling. Exceptionally quiet to run, the only buzz you'll get is from the action on the screen.
