Images looked fine in bright scenes but with dark scenes there was a decidedly washed out look and we wouldn’t recommend wh TW for use in a light controlled dedicated home cinema. In contrast to the standard definition tests the TW performed much better in the high definition tests and with the player set to i the projector correctly deinterlaced and displayed both the video and film resolution ttw3600.
Prices subject to change without notice. So let’s take a look and see how it measures up Detail levels were good and motion was handled smoothly, without the juddering that can blight affordable projectors. Unlike the surprisingly deep blacks on the TW, the blacks on the TW had that dark grey look that we have come to expect from an LCD projector.
It is impressive that Epson includes such comprehensive calibration controls at this price point but it would ey nice to see a more accurate preset for those that are unable to take advantage td3600 the calibration controls.
The other area where the TW was clearly inferior to the TW was with blacks and unlike the surprisingly deep blacks on the TW, the blacks on the TW had that dark grey look that we have come to expect from an LCD projector.
Steve Withers takes a look at Epson’s entry level home cinema projector by Steve Withers Aug 31, at Experience the drama of your favourite movie or the excitement of the big game with an image that is truly larger than life, right there in your own home.
So eu we have managed to take a look at two of the projectors in Epson’s Home Cinema range, the top of the line TW and the mid-range TW With 2, lumens in high brightness mode, the EH-TW delivers brilliant cinema quality viewing. However despite this the Tww3600 was reasonably quiet, especially in ECO mode and we couldn’t hear it when watching normal viewing material.
Running noise, quoted by Espon at 22dB, was also pleasingly low and didn’t prove a distraction even in quiet scenes.
Whilst not having the superior video processing and bigger contrast ratios found on the higher end models, it does include the same comprehensive calibration controls and a claimed brightness of 2, lumens.
All brands and names are trademarks of their respective companies. When it came to standard definition material the TW performed adequately but was somewhat limited by the mediocre video processing. It will be difficult for viewers to hear the Home Cinema EH-TW during operation unless they are sitting with their ears up to the exhaust vent. We have measured better contrast tw36000 from similar projectors.
The setup of the TW was very straight forward and thanks to the three feet it was easy to level the image with the projector screen. However aside from the video processing, the other area where the TW was clearly inferior to the Td3600 was with blacks. Against Average black level response Rival models are more affordable.
This might prove useful if you are planning on using a projector in a room with a lot of ambient light where washed out blacks are to be expected and overall brightness is more important.
When it came to the video deinterlacing tests the results weren’t quite as good with the TW producing jaggies on the rotating line at a less acute angle than we saw with the TW High Performance Cinema Filter — Improved design delivers a wider colour space and superior colour purity 3LCD Technology — 3LCD technology achieves brighter, more natural images and smoother, sharper video playback.
The colours appeared natural and the transitions from black to white were smooth and free of discolouration.
This high level of performance is mainly thanks to the accurate greyscale and colour gamut which form the backbone of any good video image.
Energy consumption was fixed no matter what footage we tested the Epson with. Of critical importance to any p te3600 are image sharpness and detail clarity.
As always with LCD projectors the inability to seal the light path which might result in ‘dust blobs’ where contaminants in the light path are visible in the projected image.
No, create an account now. High quality interconnect cable with 3 RCA colour coded plugs each end. Despite the brighter bulb the TW was reasonably quiet, especially in ECO mode and we couldn’t hear it when watching normal viewing material.
The TW claims a dynamic contrast ratio of 50, The projector did however have no problems displaying mixed film material with scrolling video text and was able to reproduce the dh without any shredding or blurring. The TW also had no problems with 24p and was able to deliver images that were smooth and free of judder.

Fine detail from p Blu-ray movies was rendered accurately and crisply. Of course the brighter the bulb, the greater the heat that is generated and the more cooling that is required. This means that LCD projectors can suffer from ‘dust blobs’ where contaminants in the light path is visible in the projected image. With i material the projector also had no difficulties in showing video text overlaid on film based material and also handled 24p content without any problems.
