Review: Epson Home Cinema 720 Home Theater Projector


Once you start up the Cinema 720, it is immediately obvious that it is a very bright projector. Our test sample, when used in "Dynamic" mode, produced a maximum of 1453 ANSI lumens. "Living Room" mode measured 727 ANSI lumens, "Natural" weighed in at...

Epson Home Cinema 720


After a few days of watching, and also mostly avoiding the 1080p projectors, my perspective seems to have returned. In a nutshell, Epson has a solid entry, that is both bright, and extremely sharp, with a very crisp looking, and highly dynamic picture...

Very bright projector overall ; Best in class warranty and support ; Most flexible of the 720p projectors in placement flexibility, very practical for shelf mounting in the back of your room ; Very sharp image ; Rich saturated colors ; Many preset...

A bit noisy (audibly) in brighter modes (though typical of DLP projectors) ; Living room mode needs major work (adjusting) for good colors ; Black levels are not as good as most of the competition ; To replace lamp, you'll have to unmount projector if...

This Epson is destined to be a top selling projector with wide appeal, and solid performance and deservedly so. The Home Cinema 720 rates our Hot Product Award, for the reasons a projector should strive for; appeal to a large segment of the buying...

Bright, bold and beautiful color out of the box, an easy set up


I bought this knowing my panasonic AE900's lamp was soon needing replacing and convinced my wife to this upgrade and I am so glad I did. What a picture! The only adjustment was to select the mode and pop in a Blu Ray. Fantastic even at 720p.

Set up is easy, remote is intuitive and easy to use

None so far; would not recognize PS3 via HDMI but a quick call to tech support fixed it

Excellent product


Highly recommended. Epsons delivers with this product. Unit is a bit pricey, but you get solid performance and a much cooler operating lamp then other models (@120w verses 300w+ with others).

Full hookup list (HDMI, Component, RGB, SVideo, DVI, etc). Easy to configure. Simple setup. Very quiet operation. Remote control operates at all angles, even when projector upside down on a ten foot ceiling. Case is light but sturdy.

None so far. The lens system "sticks out" somewhat from the case, much like a crab eye, but seems to be solid enough.

No real complaints here. Would highly recommend, so be sure to compare the contrast ratio to whatever model you want to this.

Amazing picture with the 10,000 contrast. Went from a nec 491 (nothing great) to this, and it''s amazing. Have a 150" screen installed in the house, and this looks unheavenly on the screen

Throws quite a bit of heat

Great service from PC Nation. If you have room and some light control for a front projector, the size of the image and impact from the experience outweighs the detail gained from plasm or lcd tv sets.

Versatile set up and performance. Exceptional HD will not be disappointed. Very good DVD picture. Very well made unit. Can watch TV in somewhat lighted room

Very Versatile Projector


HD material looks great on this, (PC, Xbox 360, PS3, HD-DVD, Blu-Ray) Regular Stuff (Directv, regular DVD's) don't look bad, but at the larger sizes you are well aware of the lack of clarity in the picture.

Very flexible lens system - you can mount this nearly anywhere and get a good square picture - many low cost DLP models do not offer this flexibility. Also extremely bright

Sometimes the 3 color panels don't align properly - making the picture somewhat worse than it should be - not a problem if you are covered under warranty- unfortunate that it is not adjustable - the whole assembly needs to be replaced- so fairly costly
