Epson EH-TW8000 3D Projector Review

EPSON EH-TW8000 Full High Definition 3D Home Theatre Projector

Epson have for years been the market leader in projectors as well as in the home theatre market. They have just broken the benchmark with the release of the EH-TW6000 projector which offers 3D home theatre at a reasonable price. They have also just released the high end EH-TW8000 which offers a lot more in terms of features and picture quality at around $3500.

Epson have recognised the need for a projector that can handle a room that hasn't been blacked out and they have equipped the TW8000 with a decent brightness of 2400 lumens. this allows it to handle some light in the room as well as giving you a boost for 3D use. Whenever using a projector in 3D mode the glasses decrease the brightness level, so a brighter projector gives you a massive advantage.

Where the EH-TW8000 really goes to the next level is the contrast level. At a whopping 200,000:1 it offers inky blacks for fantastic shading and will really take a dedicated (dimmed) home theatre room to the next level. The colour reproduction is excellent with the new D9 LCD panel providing you 12bit colour.

Installation is easy with an improved optical zoom of 2.1x giving you the flexibility of having the projector up close or further back and offering a very good degree of adjustment. The TW8000 features optical lens shift rather than keystone on the cheaper models. This means you can have it off centre but won't loose any resolution as with the digital keystone correction.

2D performance was exceptional, with deep black shading great colour and a crisp clear high resolution meant a good detailed image. It offers quiet operation and is bright enough for a lit room though will be louder when you have it on the high brightness mode. In a dim room the TW8000 takes home theatre to the next level with deep black shading and excellent colours. For good 3D performance we found you should have a fairly dim room but the image quality was excellent with a lot more depth to the image than the base models. The glasses look good, feel comfortable and they include 2 pairs on the EH-TW8000 ($99 each). All in all a great projector with a 3 year warranty, a one year warranty on the lamp and at just $299rrp on the lamps is really cheap to run. For a high end theatre room definitely the top choice.
