Epson EMP-TWD1 projector


Chances are, if you are like me, your house or flat probably doesn't have one room big enough to play Twister in without running the risk of one or more players coming a cropper on an item of furniture.

Looks good, perfect projector for smaller spaces

Won’t do Hi-Def, Sound may struggle to deliver in warehouse apartment spaces

If you're going to go big on Hi-Def next year then the Epson EMP-TWD1 admittedly isn't the unit to do it with as it doesn't support Hi-Def input and therefore isn't HD ready.

Epson EMP-TWD1


The EMP-TWD1 offers an elegant all-in-one solution for your home cinema needs, as long as you only want to project DVDs.

Simple setup ; Good DVD playback quality

Lack of decent OSD ; Poor external inputs ; Warns against playing back DVD+R discs

There's a risk inherent in buying any all-in-one projector/DVD combo unit, in that if the DVD portion breaks down you're out of luck, and the meagre inputs on the TWD1 do make this situation rather worse. At the same time, with a relatively low asking...

Product Specifications

How, when and where you decide to use this "all-in-one" unit is only limited by your imagination. All-in-one EMP-TWD1 eliminates the need for the often confusing and messy cable connections involved with a standard projector. Simply connecting the power cable and turning it on quickly converts any of your rooms into a home theater. Or perhaps just sit back and enjoy the rich, natural sound and image outdoors ideal for parties and entertaining friends.
