I was gonna post this myself, crazy price for this projector.

I got this on black friday and love it.

Not the best blacks, but no rainbow effect. Well worth the money!

LCD = no RBE
DLP = RBE but better colour reproduction, usually better blacks

No glasses included with these (any active shutter RF pair should work) but the 3D is very effective.

Just bought this, as was watching it for a while, looks great. If you want better blacks, people have been sticking a polarising filter over the lens, for movies and removing it for stuff where brightness is more important. Posted myself but you beat me by 30 mins ;-)

Pretty sure there was a better model for £349 last night.

Edit this one, is it better?

not really as only 15000:1 contrast where this one 35k:1. If have enough cash there is also LG minibeam which has 150k:1 contrast and short throw, so easier fitting and less cables

But it has more lumens so isn't that better?
Kinda wish I got the warehouse version last night as it worked out at £315 with prime discount.

Lumens can be better but 2200 is enough for home cinema possibly even daylight...

Whats the running cost like for a projector please? Say watching a 2 hour movie on a average electric tariff on non eco mode? Thanks

Lumens is tricky part as its also related to distance of projector to screen. Also all depends on quality of screen you are using...

Well for this unit I would say if its 300W then around 3hours would be about 1kWh which is around 15pence? then on top you can add sound system, light system, fridge power for keeping cool beer and some tips for your missus for being waitress whilst watching film, this one I will leave to work out to yourselves as every missus have different tips

Surely, as others have pointed out, the LG minibeam's 1000 lumens isnt really enough?

I have EH-TW5350 (the only difference it have Miracast and split screen (? Didn't know that).
Using daily to watch TV series and movies.
The good thing lamp is suppose to last forever and costs only about 60-70£.
For 3d I bought cheapest Samsung 3d glasses (few pounds each) but used 3d just few times.

Good for daily usage.

The bad thing - I can't enjoy cinema that much anymore and prefer watching movies at home.

lumens are only attributed to white light patterns. This is why LCD projectors can get away with lower lumens (white light brightness) because the colour light output will be brighter than that of DLP. If a LCD projector and DLP projector both have 3000 lumen rating, the LCD one will appear brighter (because how often do you have a white screen?)

Partially I agree with what you are saying, but LG minibeam is ultra short throw projector so its only around 30cm from the wall compared to epson which would be around 3 metre away.... So really massive light output not required on LG as there is no benefit... Remember its not all about light its about reflecting it to you.
