Full HD quality images

The EH-TW6100 is the ideal projector for film enthusiasts, gamers and sports fans who want to watch Full HD content on the big screen in the comfort of their own home. Boasting highend features usually found in top-of-the-range models, the projector offers high definition 2D and 3D viewing that's easy to set up and use.

Epson’s 3LCD technology

The EH-TW6100 delivers a 40,000:1 contrast ratio and is enhanced by Epson’s 3LCD technology to provide superb quality images. An equally high White and Colour Light Output of up to 2,300 lumens means you can watch content during the day, without sitting in the dark.

Easy Set-Up

With five different colour modes and an auto-colour optimiser, you can enjoy your content rather than adjusting the menu settings. You can easily align projections with horizontal and vertical keystone correction to ensure a straight and correct image, and also use the split-screen function to watch two sources at the same time.

Embedded 10W speakers

The front facing ventilation system with low-noise fan means you are not subjected to distracting, uncomfortable hot air while watching content. The two embedded 10W speakers support content, while photos of past holidays and outings can be easily displayed using the slideshow function.

3D Content

3D content is noticeably bright thanks to Epson’s luminance enhancement technology. A simple press of a button converts 2D high definition films and video games into 3D, so you can experience even more 3D content. Thanks to the 3D depth adjustment function, depth perception and image quality is much more enhanced than previous Epson 3D projectors. Featuring a pair of lightweight, rechargeable Radio Frequency (RF) active shutter 3D glasses*2, included with the projector, you can enjoy content without interference. You can keep these industry standard glasses for future upgrades, and use them with other home projector and TV manufacturers.



Can use Samsung active 3d glasses with these projectors which can be bought cheap from amazon or used from webuy.com.

I find these things to be over-priced. Does anybody know of a full HD projector for below £300?
You say it's overpriced, but then ask for one for a pretty ridiculous price? Fact is this is a 3LCD full HD 3D projector from one of the biggest names in the game, at a great price. If you want a cheap, low light output DLP projector then I'm sure you will get one closer to your hopeful price range, but please don't call something overpriced when you clearly dont know much about projectors.

They seem overpriced until you look at the tech inside generally. DLPs have 2 million mirrors in about an inch square for instance each electronically controlled. The bulbs burn at ridiculous temperatures and have to be hand blown out of quartz to survive. Roll on LED projectors and cheaper, smaller DLP chips I say, that'll drop the price.

That said best I can do is £400 for an optoma HD141X. Good luck finding one cheaper
It makes me laugh when people vote cold on items they actually know nothing about ... this should be soaring at this price.
A good deal but still out of my price range unfortunately - heated though
Nice price. Really want but not need....
Is it short throw? Heat added.
Good price for a quality projector. I personally wouldn't have one, the last mid spec Epson 3LCD based projector we had ended up driving me mad with dust contamination within the optics. At least with DLP the light engine is relatively sealed but then again the cheaper examples are prone to rainbow effect (in my opinion even with the dust issues LCD based projectors are superior image wise)

LCD projectors are not the best quality projectors these days, LED laser projectors are much better, run for 20,000 hours, are brighter, quieter, run cooler and use less power. They cost about 400-500 (Casio) and will be cheaper over 5 years than any LCD model. LCD projectors are old technology now and are not being improved on.

Casio Laser hybrid projectors have an incredibly high failure rate and are more orientated to data/office use - you cant really compare them to this Epson.

I agree, LED and Laser based projectors are the future but the Technology isn't quite ready yet. I've owned three 720p LED Projectors, two Optoma's and an LG and they were all disappointing and all had really noticeable rainbow effect.
I have this projector. It's amazing picture but no image shift like I had on my old Panasonic so you can't just plant it anywhere. If you do and you angle the projector then the image is distorted. And you have to adjust (which I did with botch Quigo?? Laser alignment). But size reduced quiet a bit. The one model above (eh-tw6600) that has added image shift. If you plan on putting on a table or on the ceiling and don't have a chandelier then go for it. Beautiful image. High contrast. Oh and you can use Samsung active 3d glasses on it
I got 10 glasses from webuy.com for about £4 each

That is more for PC usage, it's not designed to be used with cable / satellite boxes, blu-ray players, etc.

You really do get what you pay for with these things; if you're not an AV enthusiast then something like the one at the link below is a good starting point. That being said I have the previous model to this, and it suffers from the rainbow effect just like many other projectors in this price point

Personally I would probably fork out the extra money and get the deal the OP has highlighted. Seems very good for the money.
Already have a Hitachi PJTX200 from 11yrs ago and an Optoma 141x but couldn't resist buying this when it was £130 in the recent warehouse sale. It was brand new with a damaged box. Everything inside was still sealed.

Also didn't notice much difference when comparing it to the higher res 141x and it was noticeably brighter meaning I can use it in the daytime with curtains drawn.

Also not seen any rainbows from any of my three projectors.
Still £849.99 direct from Epson - Heat Added!

OP - I hate you now, I think you've cost me £700. In about 2 days I'll love you though

That might be because afaik LED projectors these days are just replacing the bulb with a white LED as a light source. This still gets passed through a colour wheel onto a DLP chip. There are 3DLP set ups which use one DLP chip for each colour but they're far more expensive, like 'take out a loan' expensive.

Not true. I have 75 CASIO Laser LED projectors at work and have had them for between 2-4 years (on a rollout replacement plan.) Had just 2 failures. They are incredibly reliable. Optima are cheap and cheerful, LG are newcomers compared to CASIO. Casio say 20,000 hours life and warranty for 5years to education (3 years for personal and business) I can honestly say they are the best projectors I have installed in my 30+ years in IT industry. They do exactly what they say on the box.

If anyone wants this particular model, not everyone is a casio fanboy, and in comparison to Currys & Epson Online for the same model this is much cheaper ... so I believe it should. Please post link to a Casio LED, I'd be interested to see it before I make a decision ...

Why is this for office use? Where does it say that? Also, what is the difference between office data vs home projector ? Data projector has hdmi and movie mode, so what's the difference ?

Well if somebody thinks projectors are overpriced, then good luck finding 80inch tv for £400
I have HD141X and excellent value for £400, 3d is great too. Also warms up house during cold winter days X) Ok maybe video quality in day time is not the best, but who cares I am at home only in evenings....
But seriously considering to get a short throw projector now as new houses these days are tiny...

Just going by my own experiences, I've seen a number of them with brightness issues, i.e. they've become incredibly dull suddenly and also seen a number of them with DMD failure (white/black dot problem) and pretty much every older example (usually with over 3000hrs+) I've come across has had worn-out cooling fan bearings. Newer models may be more reliable however as I've not dealt with any recent examples. I would imagine these Casio's are far better quality than anything LG or Optoma churn out but you get what you pay for.

Projectors are GREAT for 3D. Blow any TV away!

I had the Epson TW3200 in 2010, served me brilliantly and still going now that I've given it to my parents. Who also enjoy it.

Sounds good. I'm not ready to buy yet but despite some of the comments above I do believe I'll get 1080 for around £300 when I'm ready.

​wait for benq w1080st+ or benq w1400 to go down. my personal choice is benq w1400 but benq w1080st+ has awesome throw distance. they both are award winner in what hifi.
Personally I would stick with a good DLP projector for movies/TV viewing. Gives a slightly softer, more cinema like experience.

Obviously a good price for the product, but for around £400 - £450 you can get a decent DLP. Spend the rest on a decent screen - which will make a bigger improvement in PQ than spending the extra on this.

Most consumer short throw projectors are generally only useful if you're not permanently siting it. They still need to be some distance from the wall/screen to get a decent screen size. So placed almost in the middle of the room, which then leaves the problem of trailing wires etc. There are also ultra short throw projectors, which can be placed very close to the wall and give around 100" screen size - but tend to be more expensive.

So normal throw if you want to permanently place it at the back of the room, ultra short throw if you want to permanently place it at the front of the room or short throw if you want to use it in a temporary situation/move it from place to place.
