Epson EH-TW5300 Projector Overview
The EH-TW5300 is a LCD projector planned on account of home-diversion. Regardless of costing just £580, key components incorporate a high 2,200 lumens of asserted shine, a Full HD determination, a dynamic difference proportion guaranteed to be 35,000:1, MHL cell phone network and 3D playback.
Stylishly, the EH-TW5300 will be superbly at home on an end table. It leaves a generally little impression by projector gauges, and what there is of its case is simple on the eye because of its thrilling casing, adjusted edges and a polished white wrap up.
What sits somewhat awkwardly is the manner by which the silver-metal trim encompassing the focal point is rectified off by the unit’s edging, however you’re kind of diverted from it by the classy specifying of the focal point mount.
A vast vent sits on the left half of the belt, which raises introductory worries about potential light spillage. Cheerfully, for reasons unknown the main thing getting away through this will be warm.
The focal point itself looks promisingly vast for such a moderate projector, while an expansive opening cut in the top board gives access to straightforward and sensibly responsive zoom and center rings.
Swinging to the EH-TW5300’s back, you’ll locate a decent arrangement of associations. Highlights incorporate two HDMIs (one with MHL bolster), a VGA input, a USB 2.0 port, and a composite video input (in spite of the fact that I’d suggest you abstain from utilizing this if at all conceivable).
The USB port can be utilized for associating USB stockpiling gadgets or good advanced cameras for playing slideshows straightforwardly through the projector.
You may be intrigued to realize that there’s a £599 variation on the EH-TW5300, the EH-TW5350, which includes Wi-Fi Direct and Miracast to the availability alternatives, and in addition the capacity to control the projector by means of the Epson iProjector iOS/Android application.
The EH-TW5300 is all around determined for its cash. As we called attention to toward the begin of the audit, it cases to be fit for shunting out a noteworthy 2,200 lumens of shine – in spite of the fact that this drops to 1,500 lumens under the Eco light yield setting. Additionally, Epson is quick to push that this shine applies similarly to shading and white light; there’s no trade off here as you get with match, single-chip DLP innovation because of its shading wheel framework.
While we’re regarding the matter of LCD versus DLP projectors, the EH-TW5300 will be invulnerable to the last’s rainbow impact issues as well – in spite of the fact that the EH-TW5300’s picture can be relied upon to debase more finished its lifetime than has a tendency to be the situation with DLP projectors.
The EH-TW5300’s guaranteed differentiate figure of 35,000:1 is eye-catchingly high for a sub-£600 projector, regardless of the possibility that it’s just accomplished by means of a dynamic iris framework that alters the light yield because of the picture content.
I was likewise struck by the projector’s guaranteed light existence of 7,500 hours (in Economy mode), which is twice as high as the light lives cited by many opponents.
The EH-TW5300 underpins 3D playback in the event that you include a couple of discretionary dynamic shade 3D glasses, and the 3D playback is bolstered by a 480Hz driving framework to lessen crosstalk ghosting clamor.
Maybe the most amazing disclosure on the EH-TW5300 given its cost is a casing introduction processor, intended to figure additional edges of video to expel judder. Regardless of whether this preparing framework ends up being an assistance or an impediment stays to be seen.
One final component to specify here is the incorporation of an inherent speaker. Be that as it may, its mono 5W yield implies it’s probably not going to have the capacity to contend with the shockingly not too bad solid radiated from some of BenQ and Optoma’s most recent projectors.
The zoom and center rings are gotten to through an opening in the top board, and react sensibly precisely to little developments.
Be that as it may, there’s no optical vertical picture move to enable you to lift or lower the picture into the perfect place on your divider or screen. To be reasonable, this isn’t a component you’d ordinarily find on more moderate projectors – in spite of the fact that the £659 BenQ W1110 I as of late tried came with a vertical move.
The EH-TW5300’s on-screen menus figure out how to give a shockingly shifted number of picture setup instruments, including shading administration, a progression of themed presets, Normal and Eco light settings and a two-level Dynamic Iris framework. They even component some video-handling choices including outline insertion, detail improvement, commotion diminishment and MPEG clamor decrease.
The majority of your alignment traps will, for reasons examined in the photo quality area, concentrate on attempting to get more dark level out of the projector. Be that as it may, truly the main helpful choices are to set the light to Eco for anything moving toward dull room conditions, and leave the Auto Iris set to its Normal mode (the Fast mode has a tendency to be excessively frantic and causes a great deal of clamor from the projector’s dynamic iris).
You can take a stab at poking down the brilliance to a level around the mid 40s, in spite of the fact that this tends to influence the shading parity and shadow detail a bit too intensely. The 46 level utilized by the Cinema mode is likely as low as a great many people will need to take the splendor.
Different tips is turn of all clamor lessening handling, in any event when viewing HD, and to utilize the Frame Interpolation framework for wear – and, after its all said and done, just on its Low setting.
