There’s nothing quite like watching movies at home, free of chair-kicking patrons and $9 ticket fees (plus the popcorn is a fair sight cheaper/better), and now bringing your movies to full glorious frame at home is becoming more accessible. If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a thousand times, you haven’t truly seen Jaws til you’ve seen it jumping off your living room wall. Epson gets it, and is doing their best to bring great in-home projection to bear.
The Epson EMP-TW680 HD Ready Projector is part of the company’s low-to-mid priced home cinema systems, sitting at the higher end of the spectrum with 3LCD technology for great picture quality. Featuring a native 16:9 resolution for movies, the image quality is one of the best in class with a contrast ratio of 10,000:1 and brightness and color modes for perfect projection in any light condition. The unit arrives ready to play with easy hookups to connect to DVD, TV, your cable box, gaming console, PC or digital camera — if it makes an image, the Epson can pick it up and throw it on your wall. Coupled with that surround sound system you spent an arm and a leg on, you’re now armed to completely rile your neighbors — the other night while walking the dogs I saw that a neighbor had set his up in the backyard and was broadcasting the football game on an enormous taut sheet anchored between trees. Oh, the places you and your movies/games/sports will go! The Epson is available over at ProjectorPoint (and a ton of other retailers) for £659.
