Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 3010e

 

The Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 3010e ($1,799 direct) offers a lot to get excited about. It's one of a very few sub-$2,000 projectors to claim full 1080p HD in 3D as well as 2D; it's the only one to offer WirelessHD as a connection choice; and it's one...

Low price. Full 1080p 3D works directly with HDMI 1.4a devices like Blu-ray players and cable TV. Has WirelessHD

Price doesn't include any 3D glasses. Image in 3D shows minor crosstalk

The Epson Home Cinema 3010e can serve either as a home theater projector for theater dark lighting or as a home entertainment projector that can stand up to ambient light.

Epson Home Cinema 3010e WirelessHD 3D Projector Preview

 

A 1080p 3D capable projector with WirelessHD for only $200 over the price of the non-wireless projector? We're betting the Epson Home Cinema 3010e is going to be a popular option.

A 1080p 3D capable projector with WirelessHD for only $200 over the price of the non-wireless projector? We're betting the Epson Home Cinema 3010e is going to be a popular option (once we read some reviews saying it works). Compared to the price of an...

Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 5010e LCD Projector

 

For several years now, Epson has been the undisputed leader in the LCD projector market. They took a technology that seemed forever destined for boardrooms and churches and improved it gradually

Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 5010e 3D LCD Projector

 

Last year, we started seeing the first 3D projectors hitting the market, and most of these were reserved for the mid- to high-end customer. This year, we're seeing a trickle-down effect from the high-end manufacturers, plus a lot of the more...

Epson continues to deliver good performance for its price point, and the PowerLite Home Cinema 5010e is a solid value. I was more than impressed with its 3D performance, which rivaled the quality I’ve seen from projectors far past this price point. Its...

Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 3010e 3D Projector Reviewed

 

HomeTheaterReview.com reviewer Adrienne Maxwell put the Epson Home Cinema 3010e projector in her theater for evaluation. Read this review to see how well the projector performed as she ran it through a battery of tests.

As I mentioned above, the inclusion of the auto iris allows the HC3010e to produce a respectably deep shade of black, but this projector doesn't have the kind of black level that you're going to find in the best dedicated home theater projectors--so...

The Epson Home Cinema 3010e is a very good all-purpose projector in the budget category. Its brightness helps it deliver an engaging (albeit not perfectly clean) 3D picture and also gives it excellent versatility to watch HDTV, sports, and other bright...

Epson Home Cinema 3010e

 

There are two factors which will help you determine whether you should purchase this Home Cinema 3010e, or whether the base version, makes more sense for you. Those are the addition of WirelessHD on the 3010e, and that it supports 3D (like the 3010),...

Now if you aren't sold on 3D, the Home Cinema 3010e projector manages to also be a perfectly good value as a 2D projector. For those of you not convinced about 3D, consider it thrown in for free. You never know, you might like it. As a 2D projector,...

I looked at this 3010e and the 5010e. I wanted top of the line because I thought the setup would be easy. This machine was everything I wanted, at the right price. Beautiful picture and easy setup. Just make sure u know your throw distance before you...
