Competition: win an Epson EH-TW650 projector worth £600!

This month we’ve teamed up with Epson to give away an EH-TW650 Full HD projector, worth £600!

Watching films and TV on a projector is a much more immersive experience than viewing on a TV (even a largescreen model), tablet or smartphone – and as revealed in new research, it is also the perfect way to bring families back together.

In the survey conducted by Epson, 82 per cent of respondents said TV and movie watching accounted for the majority of family leisure time, but over half revealed that it is normal for different members of the family to be viewing content on individual devices at the same time. And while 63 per cent of parents believe a captivating home cinema experience could help bring their families closer together, their current TV-based lounge setup doesn’t offer this.

The answer, of course, is a home cinema projector. Delivering images up to 300 inches, models like Epson’s EH-TW650 offer excellent value for money compared to flatscreen TVs – even though 34 per cent of those surveyed said that 'cost' was putting them off investing in a projector for their living room. In the size versus price battle, projectors win hands down. Spend £600 on a typical 55inch TV and each inch costs you £10.89. For a projector, it could be as little as £1.83 per inch. For a cinematic experience in your own home that everyone can enjoy, a projector is the way to go.

Ready for action
The EH-TW650 we're giving away utilises Epson's proprietary 3LCD imaging technology to create its bigscreen visuals, with a 3,100 Lumens brightness rating ensuring vibrant, colour-rich pictures perfect for a living room setup. It promises longevity, too, with its lamp capable of up to 11 years of movie viewing when the projector is run in its Eco setting.

Its native resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 (Full HD) is ideal for Blu-ray, hi-def TV and console game playback. Dual HDMI inputs are on hand to plug in external sources, with additional connectivity features covering PC hook-up, playback from USB storage or wirelessly from your smart device via the EH-TW650's onboard Wi-Fi.

Getting up and running isn't complicated. The projector's short-throw lens is suited to placement on a coffee table, delivering a 100inch image from around two-and-a-half metres. A 1.2x zoom and automated keystone correction introduce flexibility to help you get your cinematic pictures right where you want them. And weighing just 2.7kg and measuring only 30cm wide, the EH-TW650 can be easily moved around the house, or stored away safely before movie night.

Immersive entertainment
Compact, easy to setup and capable of thrillingly immersive visuals, the EH-TW650 is ready to be the focal point of your living room. If you fancy getting your hands on one, enter the competition here.
