EPSON HOME CINEMA 2000 PROJECTOR: This lower cost, online version, an almost identical twin to Epson’s HC2030 sells for under $900. It is a very bright projector with very good color, great warranty. It’s a great choice for the family room!
The Epson Home Cinema 2000 Projector
The brand new Epson Home Cinema 2000 is one of two similar new home entertainment projectors just launched by Epson. This one, which we are only taking a “quick look” at (rather than a full review, like its sibling the 2030) will be sold by online dealers. It is expected to sell for $899. $100 more will get you the Home Cinema 2030, which is brighter (2000 lumens instead of 1800) and has higher contrast (15,000:1 instead of 13,000:1). We published a full, in-depth review the 2030, which is available from retailers, big box houses and smaller dealers.
To get started, I just want to say that the Epson Home Cinema 2000, is a projector that looks great, right out of the box, no muss, no fuss. True, like any projector, it can be improved with adjustment, but unlike many competitors, even if you never change a setting, it’s going to blow you away. It never looks bad. Your friends will be dazzled! Sports fans, in particular, rejoice, but most everyone looking for a bright, a bit above entry level performance projector should be at least a good bit impressed with this Epson Home Cinema 2000. Not only is this Epson Home Cinema 2000 extremely bright, but it has a few tricks up its sleeve. Yes, of course it is both 2D and 3D capable, (sorry no glasses included in the $999 price). The good news is that you can buy Epson’s very light weight RF glasses, and also know that you can find other, less expensive, but compatible glasses available online.
