- Higher than normal zoom, long-lasting lamp
- Artefacts on S-Video and composite signals, very vivid colour, loud fan
A flawed but inexpensive projector.
Price$ 1,999.00 (AUD)
The successor to Epson's EMP-TW10, the EMP-TW10H improves on its predecessor's brightness and contrast, but uses the same LCD resolution.
The EMP-TW10H has rounded lines and a silver and white chassis. It has a widescreen resolution of 854 x 480 pixels. This vertical resolution is perfectly matched to material using the US NTSC broadcast standard, but falls short of the 576 lines required by standard definition PAL TV, DVD movies and games consoles. All content has to be rescaled to fit, shedding image definition on the way. Because the EMP-TW10H lacks a powerful image processor, it doesn't do this effectively, and artefacts like moire and interline flicker appeared on composite and S-Video signals (but not on our progressive scan tests).
Colour was also excessively vivid at the projector's default setting, so you'll probably find yourself toning down the saturation. Other irritations include the lack of backlighting on the remote control and a rather high level of fan noise at full brightness mode. Depending on how close you are to the screen (and how sharp your eyes are), you may also spot the lines between the pixels-this is known as the 'flyscreen effect'.
These niggles aside, the EMP-TW10H was pretty quiet in Theatre mode, and offered a respectable level of contrast for an LCD projector when used in a darkened setting. The internal speaker is handy, though unsurprisingly low-powered, and it was easy to set up and operate.

The printer was convenient, produced clear and vibrant images and was very easy to use
I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
