Epson's 5020 projector is a movie star

 

The Epson 5020UB projector offers excellent value for the money, with a fantastic picture in 2D and 3D alike.

The ; projector can deliver great dark-room images yet has enough light output for moderately lit rooms, too; excellent color accuracy; deep black levels with ample shadow detail; plenty of features including motorized lens cover, horizontal and...

Black levels not quite as deep as some competitors; auto iris required for peak performance; iris still makes some noise; WirelessHD option (5020UBe) not as good a value.

The Epson 5020UB projector offers excellent picture quality for the money, and is versatile enough for both dark and moderately lit rooms.

Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 3010e

 

The Epson Home Cinema 3010e can bring high-quality 2D and 3D into your home theater or your family room.

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.

Review: Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 1080

 

At first the picture was a tad dark. But after cranking up the brightness and contrast, it looked every bit as good as any LCD...

Simple, useful menu system. Excellent video processing, which means a great picture from just about any HD source. Quiet

Cream-colored case looks like a relic from an ’80s boardroom. Thankfully, it’ll likely end up ceiling-mounted and out of sight

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.
