Epson’s latest trio of projector home entertainment is set to arrive within the upcoming weeks, and with a budget friendly price tag it looks promising. They include some of the best features found on their higher end models.
The HC 2040 ($799) is a native 1920×1080 3LCD projector with 2D and 3D capability, rated at 2200 lumens. It is basically an improved version of the HC 2030. The contrast rating has been boosted from 15,000:1 to 35,000:1, and quite a bit of the video processing capability of Epson’s more comprehensive home theater models like the HC 5030 have been brought down into this model, including frame interpolation.
The HD 2045 ($849) is the same projector with wireless capabilities integrated.
The HC 740HD ($649) is native 1280×720 and pumps out 3,000 lumens, so may be suitable for family room home entertainment without the need for a dark cave.
None of these are available for purchase yet hence no reviews can be done, but look out for them in full when we are able to get our hands on them.
