Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 3500


The Epson Home Cinema 3500 projector, for 2D and 3D, offers a bright image along with features that give you significant flexibility as to where to put the projector relative to the screen.

Full 1080p 3D. Works directly with HDMI 1.4a devices like Blu-ray players and cable set-top boxes. Vertical and horizontal lens shift. 1.6x zoom.

Minor image-quality issues in particularly demanding scenes. Long lag time.

If you're looking for a projector for game playing, you'll probably prefer one with a shorter lag time, like the Optoma HD141X. For a home theater or as a substitute for a TV in a family room, however, the Epson Home Cinema 3500 offers the advantage of...

Epson Home Cinema 3500 LCD Projector Review


Epson Home Cinema 3500 LCD Projector Review

Solid picture quality ; Lens shift ; Tremendous light output ; Amazing value ; Easy portability

Optics are a tad soft ; Color accuracy isn’t quite up to the level of more expensive models

Epson Cinema Home 3500 Home Theater Projector Review


Summer is in full swing and you want to throw an amazing outdoor viewing party — this is the natural domain of the projector. We've looked at quite a few pico projectors, but while the convenience of pocket-size portability is nice, you'll be...

Excellent brightness, 1080p resolution, better than average integrated sound, 3D projection

Not very portable

Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 3500 3D LCD Projector Review


Powerful light output with quiet operation and excellent build quality partner with 3D at an attractive price.

Epson puts the “light” in PowerLite; Well suited for brighter environments; Adjustments galore; Includes two pair of 3D glasses

Dynamic range short of true black; Default color tracking errors

Epson Home Cinema 3500 LCD Projector Reviewed


Epson's Home Cinema 3500 sits in the middle of the company's line of 1080p 3LCD projectors and sports a variety of useful features, including 3D capability, 1.6x zoom, lens shifting, integrated speakers, and MHL support. Find out what Adrienne Maxwell...

The Home Cinema 3500 perfectly fulfills its midsized role in the Epson Home Cinema family of 1080p projectors--offering a clear step up in performance from the budget 2030 home entertainment model but falling short of the theater-worthy black level and...

Epson Home Cinema 3500 Projector Review


Epson's Home Cinema 3500 is a mid-range home projector that's designed to provide bright, clear 1080p (and 3D) video without breaking the bank

Very bright for the price ; Vibrant colors ; Includes two pairs of RF active shutter 3D glasses

Super Resolution optional feature makes most images look worse ; Price might be too steep to justify gains for most

Epson’s Home Cinema 3500 delivers where it counts with a projector, in terms of brightness and color brightness in particular, while also offering clarity of image. It also takes up a lot of space, and costs a decent amount for those who might be...

Great for movie nights


I researched a lot of projectors in this price range and I'd say this is the best one. Overall very good product. The one kind of bad thing about it is the quality of the picture with some ambient lighting isn't the best but hey its called "family...

The light cannon!


This projector is great! It's quiet, has a long throw, excellent horizontal and vertical placement, and shoots light out like a cannon. 3D is so bright that it rivals many 3D movies that I have seen in the theater. The contrast ratio looks just O.K. on...

Great upgrade


Replaced my old Panasonic 720p projector. Picture is fantastic on my 10 foot screen. Was worried that it may be too bright for my completely dark theater, but not the case. The 3D viewing is awesome also
