As with the U04, and most of the Epson projector range, the unit is emblazoned in an all-white shell, which I’ve become accustomed to. It doesn’t necessarily blend in with any of my other appliances in the living room, but with its position in my cabinet sitting behind the couches, it doesn’t matter too much. Its compact frame also assists in it being hidden away from view, and even more so when the projector is running. The TW610 is slightly bigger and bulkier than the U04, with the units measuring 302x252x92mm and 297x244x77mm, respectively. In terms of their overall weight, the TW610 has an extra 100g to lug around.
It is worth pointing out, however, that the TW610 does come with a built-in wireless adapter (IEEE 802.11b/g/n), allowing you to connect wirelessly to the unit and stream content from your smartphone. In terms of the connectivity, the addition of the wireless component is the only change. The rest of the connectivity features include a USB 2.0 Type A, USB 2.0 Type B, VGA, x2 HDMI, Composite, MHL, and Cinch audio in.
The only other difference in the two units is the slight change of the front face. While the U04 has a black, plastic grill across the face, with the fan ventilation on the left and lamp on the right, the TW610 has a more conventional white, plastic face, which blends with the rest of the body and also accentuates the area around the lamp, actually resembling the human eye. The rest of the body remains almost exactly the same, from the rubber feet, to the controls, buttons and sliding lens cap.
