Epson EW-TW8300 review: For those who are setting up a home theatre
Can we bring real big screen entertainment to our homes? Well, this is a question lot of high-end users have been trying to answer with home theatre solutions over the years. But there is something that could well be the ultimate in home entertainment, a 4K projector. The Epson EW-TW8300 is not 4K, but is a home theatre projector that comes close and fulfils all your needs.
When I heard home projector I was expecting something that would not feel out of place in my house. But the Epson EW-TW8300 is a home projector on steroids and people who have humble homes with small living rooms can give this one a miss. In fact, the unit itself was large enough to take up the entire coffee table in my living room. That should give you an idea of the scale we are talking about. This is for those who have a dedicated space for their entertainment needs, more like a theatre and less like a living room.

Well, this is the most easy-to-use projector I have ever tried. It is so easy that you don’t need to fix the keystone, which is usually a pain. There are enough presets to fit your viewing preference and it’s quite easy finding the one that interests you. I was most impressed by the motorised lens adjustment which lets you find the perfect focus using just the remote and not actually touching the projector. That’s another big pain point removed for me.
The projector offers great 3D images enhanced by the active 3D glasses that come in the box. The 2D to 3D conversion offers good depth in the images, though I have over the years started thinking 3D is a once in a month activity at most.

The picture quality is good enough and the lamp powerful enough for you to be able to enjoy a movie at home as if you were at a cinema. Thanks to the lack of options in my small house, I first projected on a red wall in the living room and surprisingly the results were good enough for me to have persisted with the same if needed. However, with a good screen you should be able to count the feathers on a cockatoo from across the room. That is the kind of clarity the 4K enhancement technology brings in. You will be forgiven for believing that you have an actual 4K projector at home.
