but if money were no object, i would go for the lg ust 4k , or the xgimi h2
another reason i love the bigasuo is it only uses about 45 watts electricity.
there is a cheap enough one on amazon i have found, and ive been through about 8 of their cheap ones after pouring over the reviews, and my favourite though its 720p is the bigasuo dvd projector because it plays dvds a rare thing these days , also something called the TOWOND which is definitely the best cheap 'native 1080p' picture ive found . onyl main drawback is it only has one hdmi in, the Bigasuo has two. I got the bigasuo on offer for 48, and paid 99 for the towond.
Only Chineese brands like Blitzwolf, Vankyo. Or you can look for used HD on eBay, but usually such projectors will be fine for maximum one year or less.
Yes, but yellow is usually the colour most printers use the least of, if you have separate cartridges for them. Personally I am happy with my black and white Samsung Laser printer for most things (one of the best deals I got through HUKD, now that prices have doubled or tripled on them) and use Boots etc for the few hard copy photos etc I print
i bought a bundle of these to print off my coldplay tickets, but they were all yellow
If you are a heavy user you can ask them to bung you a couple of extra carts nicely on chat. The cartridges are fairly easy to kill if you print of a bunch pages with a mix of images. It seems carts have shrunk since the hayday of late 90s (lol) remember my dad using a syringe ink refill kit from QVC to fill our printer way back when. That was instant ink, 260ml bottles (y) 🏻 for less than one full price csrtridge.
Works great for me. I rarely print, so am on their free 15 pages per month plan. It sent me a new cartridge way before I needed it. About 3 months ago and I haven't installed it yet...
A lot of people saying that the delivery time on hp instant ink is shocking. Not really "never go without ink"
Don't forget Epson ReadyPrint (y)
When you head clean 12 times to get your black printing right and you red runs out (mad) (mad) (mad) probably used 6 carts worth of ink on head cleaning alone on our old Epson if not more. Praise the lord for hp instant ink and free head cleaning (lol) Trying hp as each cart has a new print head, but alas use instant ink as cheap compatables are not an option.
Screen door effect is disgusting on this, really really bad.
Unless your going to be using it the real bright conditions then Lumens would be fine for this 740. All depends on your setup. I use mine with a shield and it all goes through my AV unit for the audio so 1 hdmi is fine for me...
https://smile.amazon.co.uk/dp/B081L2VBKC/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glc_fabc_PRTGBB40CHRB1R8JS9MJ would be fine
This or the Epson EH-TW750? It’s more expensive, but has more lumens, Wi-fi, Miracast, manual Zoom and 2 x hdmi.
From Epson's site: 24 months Carry-in, Lamp: 36 months or 3,000 h.
Can anyone tell me if I can place the unit 4m away from the screen and get a sharp image?
In that case I'm definitely going to have to find out more about Google TV and how it manages to do this!!!
No, I am using the Bluetooth. The built in speakers are ok but not as good as my Bose :D just really annoyed with the light being cast around the projected image
And you're not using that port, right? You are transferring sound from Google TV to other speakers via Bluetooth?
It arrived today and just tested it. There is an audio out port on the back. The electronic zoom works but there is so much light border around the image it's so annoying. The video testing the lag worked fine, no noticeable lag
Would this be a good deal at £396.30? Epson EH-TW740, Used - Like New, Amazon Warehouse I’m looking for a projector for home cinema use for around this price. Would welcome any recommendations the community may have :)
Many thanks for that. Appreciate you taking the time to respond.
Hi Splatt66, 1) Is the ADF scanning auto duplex? - No, its only Single-sided scan with ADF. 2) Can you confirm this is rear paper feed? - Yes, 30 pages capacity. More info can be found here - https://www.epson.co.uk/products/printers/inkjet-printers/for-home/workforce-wf-2835dwf#specifications
Can someone help with a couple of questions I can't find answers to; 1) is the adf scanning auto duplex? 2) can you confirm this is rear paper feed?
Can we go for the higher range (100 pages) during free trial and then downgrade after trial ? Or can we go for any range & cancel during trial ?

This projector is physically huge. I've had my eye on a 4K projector having had a really great Epson HD for some time. Been waiting for the price on this sleek and compact LG to drop under £1500 : https://www.amazon.co.uk/LG-CineBeam-HU70LS-projector-3840x2160/dp/B07YZRLY4G/ref=sr_1_9?crid=QQHP6NWCB1L8&dchild=1&keywords=lg+hu70la+4k+projector&qid=1614257419&sprefix=LG+HU70LA,aps,276&sr=8-9 Its tiny in comparison with great picture and has some great reviews :
I've been looking at projectors for some time now and it appears they have all gone up in price. I know raw material cost has gone up but the technology has declined so technically these should be cheaper than two years ago when they could be bought for £1299.
Has anyone used readyprint ? The stock ink that came finished in 10-15 pages.. if I register for free trial 3 months can I cancel it during trial period without have to pay ? And then will it be possible to use 3rd party ink?
Bumpity-bump - 7 left online at the moment!
If you don’t do much printing is it still worthwhile? I find traditional inks can run dry as only an occasional print user
If you have missed this deal earlier, this printer is now available to click and collect from Argos. https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/epson-workforce-wf-2835-wireless-inkjet-printer-ps5999-argos-free-click-collect-or-delivery-for-ps395-3690125
Agreed, had mine over two years, only just replaced the cartridges and my kids print loads. Brilliant machines, the only inkjet I would consider.
Thats good to know as I don't think I could stretch to native 4K at anything like current prices!!
No, you can't get a true 4k projector for 1k but from testing out a few the ONLY time I noticed a difference was when literally viewing a benchmark disc. In real life use cases the BenQ W2700 was as good as the much more expensive Sony model that was set up too.
332"? Ridiculous!!! Even if the projector was up to it, which home or office would allow for that? I don't live in a small house and my screen is 122" inch diagonal.... and that's probs using 75%-80% room height. Even at the office, I'm not sure the ceiling height would allow for 332" diagonal. Unless your office is outdoors or an auditorium I don't think 332" is doable, regardless of the quality of the projector??? That said, is 3500 lumens that bad? Seems reasonable to me. If you aren't susceptible to DLP halo effect, then just a little cheaper can be found. But if halo effect is a concern, then 3 chip LCD does cost a bit more. Under those circumstances, the deal seems reasonable? And can you get a true 4K projector for less than £1k? Pixel shift, for sure. But that's a whole other argument...although I'll be tempted when I get access to enough decent 4K material to justify the upgrade.
They're basically the same projector except the TW740 is designed for home use. There's no audio out on the FH06 so you'd need to use an external receiver or equivalent, and if you don't want to spend HOURS on calibrating it the factory presets on the TW740 allow for Bright use with more accurate colours than the FH06.
4K projector prices are VERY slow to come down. By the time they are reasonably priced, my eyes will be too old to notice the difference. (nerd)

Yeah, complete set, loads of ink from the looks of it
Think the black print speed was slower than the same ones in the same series. Rymans have a 2710 for same price. That has a different black capacity per refill and a different print speed. Just lacks the little screen.
Yes, a complete set of refills appear to be between £15-20 in total.
Also guys if anyone is trying to figure out how to extend your warranty to three years, can do here: https://www.epson.co.uk/promotions/extended-warranty
I just purchased an Ecotank 2720 from Currys for £180, and so far it’s seems like a great buy. It came with a full set of inks, which prints on average 4,500 B&W and 7,500 Colour prints which should last 1-2 years depending on useage. Compared to buying the normal Epson inkjet printer: Printer: £60-80 B&W: £180 for the same amount of prints (£20 per cartridge which prints 500 pages) So already you’re making a saving and we haven’t even calculated the colour printing, no brainer if you ask me. Only hurdle is the up front cost.
Can agree on the timescale, we're using an Eco Tank model for business use so very regular printing and the blank refill last us a over a year; it came with a two full sets of black and colour so we'll get over two years out of it. We'll break even after eighteen months of usage compared to buying normal cartridge as we did for our old HP, plus takes a worry away when you need to print and realise we'd already used the spare when printing invoices.
For the simple reason that a full set of XL cartridges cost £77 (at Currys). Yes you can find them elsewhere for around £45, but it only contains enough for 500 black pages and 130 pages in colour, where as this Ecotank comes with four 65m bottles of each colour, which is over 7x the size of the XL black cartridge and 27x the colour ones, enough for 4,500 black pages and 7,500 colour pages.
You buy bottles of ink from the manufacturer and tip them in the tank, it is only £35 or less for a full set of 3x colour 1x black which lasts a very long time depending on use, could be 1-2 years. There might be some generic inks available for cheaper but not really worth the risk since genuine ink is so cheap.

Epson uses piezo print heads which are renowned for blocking. So long as they are used at least once a week they are a lot better than they used to be. If you're still concerned then the canon version is significantly better, their printhead technology is completely different and rarely blocks however the canon printhead generates heat and so cannot be used for any form of sublimation (if you don't know what that is then it's unlikely you'll need that). I need for sublimation so I had no choice.
I have been using this printer for over a year now. No issues yet . But to be honest we print every week. The longest I have not printed for in this printer is 2weeks . You've got me worried now lol
I'm.looking for a new all in one printer with the ink tank system. I'm nervous about going back to an Epson because of the issues around print heads drying up.and clogging as I had with my previous Epson and others are reporting. Are they any better now? I have a HP printer that prints blurred but test prints are perfect.

This is more suited to high volume lower quality printing which is why I purchased it for my daughters uni work (no photos). If you want ecotank and cheaper printing costs if you have high volume then the Epson EcoTank ET-7700 is worth a look but it aint cheap. Which reviewed it and gave 77% but it seems to retail for over £450!!! Pros Very affordable ink costsPrints photos and spreadsheets wellWi-fiAirPrintAutomatic double-sided printingCons Text print quality could be betterCopier is a bit underwhelmingVery expensive
Are the printers with ink bottles cheaper to maintain compared to laser printer? I bought a colour laser printer years ago for £200. Third party replacement cartridges are cheap and I got the full set for around £40 which gives me a yields of around 5000 pages.
My point was more against Epson’s marketing than value of your deal. Many home users do scan a lot so an ADF Duplex Scan is a key feature. Many printers sub £100 have an ADF at least, be it manual to do double sided.
This ain't better than the rest of Inkjet printer all Inkjet do self cleaning so nothing special.....The only thing this make it special is the tank....but then you can get a system which added to your existing Inkjet from eBay....which sit next to your printer.....on eBay search 'Epson ciss' and to set up check YouTube.
I need a good quality printer for photo prints for my business. Would anyone recommend this?
