Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 3020

16 May 2013
  • Summary: Feierman agrees, noting that the Epson Home Cinema 3020 comes at a great price for a 3D-capable LCD projector. The fact that it's an LCD projector -- and thus doesn't produce the rainbow effect a small percentage of viewers perceive with DLP projectors -- may be the Epson Home Cinema 3020's greatest distinction in this price range.
  • Pros: Great color, Excellent 3D performance, Lots of brightness
  • Cons: Blacks could be deeper, No lens shift

Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 3020e LCD Projector

Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity

  • Summary: The Highlights My Wish List Epson has always been a value leader with their front-projection models and the 3020e continues that tradition. This is the fourth generation I've reviewed and they just keep getting better and better. Making the wireless HDMI available in a sub $2000 model is another thing that sets them apart. Add to that prodigious light output from only a 230-watt bulb, excellent optics and decent color accuracy; and you have a winning product here.

Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 3020e Review

  • Conclusion: I really enjoyed my time with the Espon PowerLight Home Cinema 3020e. Set up and use was fairly easy. The rear panel connections are clearly labeled and spaced and the top mounted controls are easily accessible if you choose to use them, instead of the remote control. However, the remote control is well-laid out and is backlit, making it easy to use in darkened room.

Expert Review

Projector reviews

  • Conclusion: As a family room projector most owners will find the black levels to be acceptable, and the shadow detail to be rather excellent.  Black levels performance though, is not likely to inspire serious enthusiasts looking to put the HC3020 in a dedicated theater / cave type of room. No one’s going to complain about the shadow detail, but if you are really into black level performance, as I am, you’ll have to weigh this one relative weakness against the many benefits.

Epson projector packs features, ok performance

CNET
4 June 2013
  • Summary: The Epson PowerLite 3020 projector series offers up a decent deal with a sophisticated picture and a couple of unique features.
  • Pros: The Epson PowerLite 3020 offers up decent amounts of shadow detail and black level for a budget-minded projector. It's easy to use and offers a lot of tweaking capabilities. 3D and 24P playback are miles ahead of what a TV at the same price can offer.
  • Cons: WirelessHD (3020e only) is an expensive upgrade and needs clear line of sight to work; colors are a little off compared to the cheaper BenQ W107; black levels come at the expense of a noisy iris motor.
