Review: Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 1080
23 October 2007
Excerpt: At first the picture was a tad dark. But after cranking up the brightness and contrast, it looked every bit as good as any LCD or plasma we tested Ã¢Â¿Â¿ and almost as good as projectors clocking in at many times the price.
Pros: Simple, useful menu system. Excellent video processing, which means a great picture from just about any HD source. Quiet.
Cons: Cream-colored case looks like a relic from an ’80s boardroom. Thankfully, it’ll likely end up ceiling-mounted and out of sight.
Conclusion: I think the first would be that the projector needs to be sensible in how it works – i.e. you shouldn’t have to fight it to get an image playing. The second would be that it must display video of sufficient quality that it doesn’t keep reminding you that you were unable to afford something better.
Pros: Plenty of extra functionality such as lens shift, security slot, control deactivation, etc
Cons: Replacing the air filter can be overlooked and result in degraded performance
