Epson 6500UB LCD Projector Review


It's always surprising to me to see new projectors hit the market with better and better performance and less and less compromise - and at prices often identical to, or even lower than, just a year

Excellent blacks ; Super low standby power consumption ; 2.1x zoom Fujinon lens ; Quiet

Significant lag during gaming ; 120Hz FineFrame mode unstable with fast motion footage and games ; Limited digital zoom modes

Epson EH-TW5000


Outstanding contrast for an LCD., Phenomenally pure colors., Long-lifetime lamp guarantee., Excellent 24p movie pictures., Versatile installation.

Focusing and LCD pixel-raster too coarse., Weaknesses in scaling of SDTV material.

Give them a round of applause: Epson’s EH-TW5000 pushes the picture-quality bar up to a new level for LCD projectors! It gleams with sensational colors, high motion-clarity, and the best LCD contrast we’ve ever seen. And it gets even better: The device...

Epson PowerLite HC 6500UB Home Theater Projector Review


True 1080P (1920 x 1080) resolution featuring 3LCD projection = stunning images Black levels are amongst the absolute best you’ll find, Out-of-box image quality is well above average, and comprehensive and easy-to-use image adjustment features make it...

For all intents and purposes, the 120 Hz FineFrame technology is an absolute disaster and does nothing to improve the image, making matters much worse, but thankfully you can just turn it off, Projector is a little bigger and heavier than the model it...

If you can ignore and forget that whole 120 Hz FineFrame technology debacle (which shouldn’t be too hard since you can turn it off), the Epson 6500UB will reward you with one of the finest in-class, HD, 1080p home theater experiences you’re likely to...

Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 6500 UB 1080p Home Theater ProjectorReview


Delivering exceptionally deep blacks and a vivid, accurate color palette, Epson's boxy-but-good 6500UB makes the short list of affordable 1080p projectors worthy of your hard-earned coin.

Epson's 6500UB may be boxy, it may be a tad heavy and its frame interpolation mode may not be quite ready for prime time, but that's not going to stop me from calling it a remarkable performer. You'll notice I didn't tack "for the money" onto the end...

All in one solution that should work in most rooms that have at least 14 feet of depth, Saves the time and hassle of investigating separately AV receivers, projectors, speaker systems, and so on., Using the channels, the complete system should be...

Arguably, you could buy individual components and get more bang for the buck (however, if you plan to pay others to install a home theater, it’s probably a bargain., While color and skin tones are really very good, there are a few projectors that can...

A 1080p home theatre projector with great black levels and 100Hz technology.


We like the Epson EH-TW5000. It has a few niggling problems but overall its output is of a very high standard.

DeepBlack system works well and dynamic contrast is fast, 100Hz system smoothes out motion significantly

100Hz technology introduces occasional artefacts

Consumer review by: crotchrider (

This projector is everything and more than I expected.


If you have any thought about 'trading-up', I would suggest that you look no further. For the overall performance, this unit is a winner, even at more than twice the price. Again, I haven't seen it along side another competitor to give it a fair and...

The blacks are deep, the detail is sharp and well defined, and the set-up was 'apple-pie' easy. This unit has to be the value champion in this segment! I would have to see a 'superior' model side-by-side to see the difference. it's hard to imagine

I'm honestly trying, but I can't think of a single one. This is a little unfair since I have nothing to compare it to other than my old 470p Sony 3-gun, and no contest there
