Summary: While Epson's main focus this year seems to be on the higher end, higher-price section of the projection market, its mid-range TW2900 actually turns out to be a really quite exceptional bargain, delivering far more features and football-friendly quality than you've any right to expect for a mere £1,200
Cons: Large chassis; HD could be a touch crisper; colour could be slightly richer; black levels not deep enough.
Conclusion: Excellent features for your money! The build quality also pleases, as does the extremely versatile installation, but Epson’s LCD projector fails to make the most of its potential — its presets, for example, show subtle discolourations. Experts can optimise the colours using the detailed set of picture controls.
Pros: Versatile lens-shift optics., Massive zoom factor., Sharp HD pictures., Full colour-management system.
Cons: Exaggerated colours., Slight colouration in black images., Average in-picture contrast.
Excerpt: Seemingly paying little notice to notions of exterior styling, this is another bulky beast that would be as happy on a shelf of cooling fans and microwaves as it would surrounded by AV kit. Still, it's what's inside that counts, and here you'll find plenty of cutting-edge projection technology. Most noteworthy is perhaps the automatic iris mode, which busies itself constantly with making minute adjustments to your picture so that you see it at its very best.
Pros: Easy set-up, Full HD, bright, vivid colours, good insight, quiet
Cons: Lacks solidity with black levels, a little soft around edges
Conclusion: Eine so tolle Ausstattung, Verarbeitung und Flexibilität gab es selten zu einem so attraktiven Preis. Zwar reizt der scharfe LCD-Projektor Epson EH TW 2900 sein Potenzial in den Voreinstellungen nicht aus und zeigt dort leichte Einfärbungen. Tüftler finden aber nahezu komplette Werkzeuge, um die Farben noch ein wenig zu optimieren. Diese Vorstellung verdient den Testsieg.
