Once again it was showing detail down to 18 but not below it which means it is correctly reproducing black whilst maintaining appropriate shadow detail.
However what if you are looking for a slightly cheaper projector that is perhaps a bit brighter? Unlike the surprisingly deep blacks on the TW, the wpson on the TW had that dark grey look that we have come to expect from an LCD projector.
The gradations in colour, which are always a strength of LCD projectors, were equally as impressive and the shadow detail was also good. Picture Performance Whilst the TW might not be perfect it was certainly capable of a very good performance, especially with high definition content. With that in mind, it’s hard to recommend the TW for someone planning to build it into a dedicated cinema room despite its provision of a 12V trigger.
High Performance Cinema Filter A beautiful image requires the best treatment to ensure accurate colour reproduction. A claimed contrast ratio of 50, 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.
Out-of-the-Box Measurements For the purposes of our out-of-the-box measurements we used the ‘Cinema’ preset, selected the 2. Oops, it looks like the system is down. However there were no such problems with high definition material and the resulting images were excellent with plenty of detail and smooth judder free motion from 24p material. Despite the brighter bulb the TW 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. Dynamic contrast was better at 16, See all our projector Best Buys. Finally there is a sub-menu for all the Advanced calibration controls which we will come back to later. Once level it just took a couple of minutes to zoom up the image, then shift it so that it precisely filled the projector screen and focus the image.
It’s decently connected, too: Detail levels were good and motion was handled smoothly, without the juddering that can blight affordable projectors. This was certainly true when using the TW in conjunction with a 2.

The first sub-menu is Image which as the name suggests includes all the controls needed for correctly setting and calibrating the image. Black levels are impressive, too, the digging out detail from darker scenes in which is renders deep, solid black levels faithfully.
A fine performer for the money Projecting the Blu-ray of Inceptionit’s clear that the Epson is very capable. You own this Total 0. Calibrated Measurements For these measurements we used the White Balance control RGB to calibrate the greyscale and we also used the Customisable Gamma to try and correct the gamma curve.
Thank you for signing up! The other area where the TW was td3600 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 epwon come to expect from an LCD projector. Please try again later.
With Toy Story 3 BDcolours had great richness. You can mitigate this problem to a degree by being careful and trying to keep the amount of dust to which the projector is exposed to a minimum but if you get a dust blob it can be very annoying and difficult to remove.
Overall the performance of the Epson TW was very good and this was primarily due to the accurate greyscale and colour gamut after calibration. In the motion adaptive deinterlacing test the performance was also not as good as we would have liked with significant jaggies on the bottom on the three moving lines.
The colours appeared natural and the transitions from black to white were smooth and free of discolouration.
Colour burst In use, the TW delivers a solid but not exceptional picture. Welcome to Epson and keep an eye out for our latest updates and exclusive offers.
Oddly, eppson should pick the 7,K setting to get closest to 6,K, but it looked natural nevertheless. This means that LCD projectors can suffer from ‘dust blobs’ where contaminants in the light path is visible in the projected image. Do you already have an account?
No, create an account now. We have measured better contrast ratios from similar projectors. For Affordable easy eson install good detail, balanced colours, solid black levels.

The TW was certainly capable of lighting up a reasonably large screen but if this is your intention there is the possibility of being able to see pixel structure at a normal viewing distance. On of the reasons that the blacks on the TW are not as impressive as on the TW is that the light output if the bulb is much higher. That said, I can vouch that this Epson is capable of producing an extremely bright picture, so it’s well suited to those whose viewing environment isn’t overly dark.
This was especially true of Freeview broadcasts, although at least there were some noise reduction controls try and clean up the image. Dpson shadow detail was lost, as the TW struggled with the low-lit confines of Ryan Reynold’s submerged coffin.
However it was unfortunate that the out-of-the-box performance was not as good with an over saturated colour ttw3600 and errors in both greyscale tracking and gamma. Equipment supplied by Epson Australia is designed to function in conjunction with genuine Epson consumables and accessories specifically configured for it. This high level of performance is mainly thanks to the accurate greyscale and colour gamut which form the backbone of any good video image.
