Have you been keeping up with all the new models coming out? How about the Epson 2030? Just recently announced, the Epson 2030 is a new projector for their Home Entertainment line up. We just so happened to have a Home Cinema 2030 in house this week – and I wanted to share some thoughts on it!
We did have it set up to a competitor model to see the difference in specs etc. but im not going to mention what it was…
Here is it, setup in our demo room – nice and small, compact design –
The overall performance is great – it has different viewing modes and options for lamp brightness, and the menu was fairly easy to work through…
This picture was in Eco mode, and Cinema viewing – and look how bright it still is! (Image on the right)
So for $999 – you get 1080p, 2D and 3D viewing, 15,000:1 contrast ratio, and one of the latest features that I think is pretty cool – it works with MHL-enabled smartphones, tablets and streaming devices — for instant access to movies, videogames etc.
Now while I would mount this beauty to my ceiling in our movie room, im sure some would want something more portable – and the Epson 2030 would work nicely! It weighs only 6 pounds! Making it an easy choice to have at home or take on the road.
Overall, would I buy the Epson 2030? …Yes – in my opinion this is a great projector, not just for the price, but for what it brings to the table. In fact, I’m debating upgrading our current movie room after seeing it. We’ll see – Christmas is coming …but it might be nice for football season too… did you know that started this week? … you’d have to living on Mars not to know football kicked off this week
Until next time – and as always, remember – friends don’t let friends watch football on tiny little TV’s!
