Lit up by laser Lasers are an economical backlight alternative to the old-school halogen bulb. Martin Pipe assesses this slimline wonder

Casio’s XJ-A235 is not a dedicated home cinema projector; it only has 720p (1,280 x 800) resolution, a single HDMI port and lacks professional calibration options, while employing only single-chip DLP technology. Yet this lightbox might pique the interest of shoppers also looking at £1,000 models from the likes of Vivitek and Optoma, because of its cutting-edge lighting under the bonnet.

The EH-LS100 is a pro-AV ultra-short-throw (UST) projector demobbed for consumer use.Similarities with Epson’s straight-laced EB corporate UST projection range, from design through to specification, are obvious. But I’m not complaining. The EH-LS100 is unfeasibly bright and gloriously over-engineered.

Thanks to the Epson EH-LS10000, I can see clearly now the grain is gone. I can literally see all obstacles in my way. Gone are the dark clouds... replaced by perfect shadow detail and absolute blacks. This is laser home cinema, and it’s nothing less than a revolution in bigscreen viewing.

Bright young thing Kevin Gallucci auditions an affordable projector that loves living rooms

Epson is one of the leading projector manufacturers in the world today and offers a five-strong home cinema lineup. The EH-TW3600 is its newest entry-level model, and some way off the flagship RH4000 in terms of specs. For instance, the brand’s Reflective LCD technology is missing here. Still, at only £1,300, this PJ will certainly attract a few buyers.

Although called a 'home projector', Epson's EH-TW490 is compact, weighs only 2.4kg and even arrives with a neat travelling case – in this regard, it looks like it's been designed as much for the travelling salesman as the movie-mad AV enthusiast. Furthermore, the resolution is only 1,280 x 800 (essentially 720p), although connectivity does include HDMI, so cash-strapped BD fans may well be interested.

Unless you’re one of those weird PC gamers who thinks the zenith of gaming is to play exceptionally high-resolution games on tiny screens, you’re probably of the opinion that quality games are best enjoyed on big screens. Especially now that a new generation of consoles is nearly upon us, promising even greater graphical prowess.

Priced at £1,350, Epson’s EH-TW6000 appears a clone of the award-winning EH-TW5900, which can be bought for just £1,000. Despite the price gulf, the two are very similar in specification, yet differ in a couple of key areas.

Epson's TW6100 certainly looks like it means business, and its big, centrally-mounted lens and glossy black finish all smack of a projector with serious home cinema ambitions. Its on-paper specs look very promising as well. In addition to the inevitable Full HD resolution, this LCD-based PJ claims a contrast ratio of 40,000:1, and a high brightness of 2,300 Lumens. The TW6100 also delivers Full HD Active 3D playback, with one pair of rechargeable RF-type 3D glasses included.

Epson makes much of the colour output of its 3LCD projection fleet, and often with good reason – most cast images which glow with Candy Crush vibrancy. The EH-TW6600W is a good example. This latest addition to its home theatre range creates images that compete with LED TVs in terms of kaleidoscopic vibrancy. With this PJ, superheroes appear more heroic and animations more animated. Sackcloth calibration miseries may not approve, but within minutes of installing the projector I was buzzing.

John Archer fires up HDR, SDR and 3D on the latest addition to Epson's '4K Enhancement' LCD projector range

Epson's latest 4K Pro-UHD LCD projector promises serious bang for your buck. For £1,500, the EH-TW7100 claims a maximum brightness of 3,000 nits and contrast ratio of 100,000:1, and image sizes up to 500in. It even packs a Bluetooth output for streaming audio to external speakers, in addition to its onboard 2 x 10W sound system.

This year, projection specialist Epson has rejigged its product lineup to target the bigscreen movie fan who wants to step up from a £1,000 model but isn't ready to enter the competitive mid-range market where Sony and JVC are also trading blows. The result is the EH-TW7200, its 'entry-level' 3D model that retails for approximately £1,900 – a price point that other brands often ignore.

Somehow, Epson’s new EH-TW7300 only costs £2,200. That's despite it being one of only a handful of projectors capable of playing both 4K and high dynamic range sources. Surely such a ground-breaking deal has to be too good to be true?

'Badges? We don't need no (stinking) badges!' So declared Mexican bandit Gold Hat (Alfonso Bedoya) in The Treasure of the Sierra Madre. He clearly wasn't an AV fan. We all love badges. And there's no shortage on Epson's latest projector, the EH-TW7400: 3LCD, 3D, 4K Enhancement, HDR and Pro UHD. The latter is a new one on me. But that's fine. The more the merrier.
