Epson EH-TW6100 Full HD 3D Projector will replace the older Epson EH-TW6000. It has Epson’s unique 480 hertz frame refresh rate which is twice as fast other 3D projectors. Having more refresh rate helps minimize the “blackout time” between 3D images. In India, it will be priced at Rs 1,30,099. In the UK, it costs about £1083 + VAT (£1,299.60 with VAT)

Review of Epson EH-TW6100 Full HD 3d Projector:

The EH-TW6100 delivers a 40,000:1 contrast ratio and is enhanced by Epson’s 3LCD technology to provide superb quality images. An equally high White and Colour Light Output of up to 2,300 lumens means you can watch content during the day, without sitting in the dark.

  • Perfect picture: 3LCD Full HD technology
  • Very bright output: 2,300 lumens White/Colour Light Output
  • Bright 3D content: 480hz drive
  • User-friendly: Keystone correction
  • Industry standard: Radio Frequency 3D glasses included – Epson RF active shutter 3D glasses are part of the Full HD 3D Glasses Initiative, www.fullhd3dglasses.com

Epson EH-TW6100 Full HD 3D Projector’s 3D content is noticeably bright thanks to Epson’s luminance enhancement technology. A press of a button converts 2D high definition films and video games into 3D, so you can experience even more 3D content.

Epson EH-TW6100 dimensions are 420 x 365 x 137mm (Width x Depth x Height) and weighs 6 kg which obviously are on higher side as compared to their DLP counterparts.
Here I go again in the LCD / DLP technology comparison debate!

I have owned both technology types – LCD and DLP. Being a purist, I personally prefer DLP for the more “film like” look and rich colours. However, I have been blown away by the brightness of colours on Epson EH-TW6100 Full HD 3D Projector.

It Keystone Correction Auto vertical: ±30°, Manual horizontal ±30° and Projection Distance Wide 0.9m – 8.9m (100 inch screen) meaning giving you better flexibility of positioning of the projector vis a vies the screen. For people new to the DLP/LCD technology debate, this gives a major advantage over the DLP. Note that the issue is not with DLP model per se, it’s the technology difference.

However, for home installation if you know the fixed placement of your screen and projector, you would be just as fine with DLP technology projectors. At my home theater installation, I have used a Grandview 120 inches screen (non motorized, but smooth release) with Optoma HD 20 DLP projector and Yamaha RXV 471 receiver. Plus I use a wi-fi enabled media player to play youtube and Netflix directly on the screen. If you are interested in knowing more about how to go about a setting up your own movie theater at home, drop me a line.
