Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 6500 UB 1080p Home Theater Projector Review

10 August 2009
  • Conclusion: 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 of that sentence.
  • Pros: Rich, deep blacks, Punchy, natural color palette, Extremely sharp, Lens shift / superior install flexibility, Bright, powerful lamp
  • Cons: Frame interpolation mode isn't quite there yet, Passable but imperfect results on 480i jaggie tests, Somewhat slow to lock on to HDMI signal, Auto-iris noise somewhat distracting if nearby, Boxy and boring exterior

  • Cons: Significant lag during gaming, 120Hz FineFrame mode unstable with fast motion footage and games, Limited digital zoom modes

  • Pros: Very good color accuracy post calibration in best mode, LivingRoom mode provides very good color accuracy for a brighter mode, great for HDTV, Sports, and for movies with modest ambient light, Dynamic mode is brighter than all but a very few projectors can produce, Good shadow detail performance,...
  • Cons: Apparent problems with Epson’s frame interpolation scheme, with frequent jerkiness to the image, and “live digital video” look to movies when engaged, Darkest shadow details lost, compared to the projectors best at shadow detail – but ultimately very respectable shadow detail, A third HDMI input ...
