New Epson offerings project LCD entertainment

Yours for just under 4,000 GBP. Hey, come back! Image: Epson.

Granted, 1080p high-definition LCD televisions might be all the rage as humble CRT technology gets pushed inexorably towards extinction, but does anyone lovingly recall the days when wall-filling projectors posed the biggest threat to conventional TVs and were seen as the next ‘big’ thing?

Epson is clearly still holding a torch for projection-based entertainment and, while the likes of Samsung and LG enjoy the LCD TV limelight, it has whipped the covers off a whole host of new drool-worthy model variants for its portfolio of sexy LCD home projectors.

Sitting atop the pile shackled to a 3,999 GBP price tag is the EH-TW5500, which relies on Epson’s proprietary D7 3LCD panel technology and a new dual iris design to help it pump out Full HD 1080p performance and, according to Epson, a jaw-dropping dynamic contrast of 200,000:1.

Other noteworthy aspects crammed into the EH-TW5500 include Epson’s acclaimed HQV video processing system, 12-bit video processing, and markedly improved judder reduction thanks to an advanced frame interpolation system.

If you’re keen on making the jump to projection-based entertainment, but the EH-TW5500 is a little beyond your means, then how about the 2,999 GBP TW4400 or the 1,299 GBP TW3500?

At a clear thousand pounds cheaper than the flagship device, the TW4400 still comes with an outstanding dynamic contrast ratio of 130,000:1, Full HD performance, dual iris technology, optical zoom and horizontal and vertical image shifting. 

The TW4400 still too rich for you? Then consider the TW3500, which offers Full HD resolution and a dynamic contrast ratio of (just) 36,000:1 for a substantially cut down price of 1,299 GBP.

Clearly looking to appeal to every possible category of consumer in these currently testing times, Epson’s remaining entrants worthy of consideration arrive in the form of the TW2900 (1,099 GBP for 18,000:1), and the TW450 (649 GBP for 3,000:1).

All of the new Epson LCD projectors are expected to arrive at market this coming November.

What Color is this Dress?
