Epson’s new PowerLite Home Cinema 730HD Projector proves that consumers don’t have to spend a small fortune to own a cinema-style projection system. The cost its what makes it stand out. While other home projectors sell for well over $1,000, the PowerLite Home Cinema 730HD retails at $649.
The 730HD delivers some seriously high-bright output, with 3,000 lumens of color brightness and 3,000 lumens of white brightness, with an absolutely rainbow-free image thanks to the projector’s three-chip 3LCD engine. Its resolution is at 720p, more than enough for a typical home theater.
Setup also promises to be incredibly neophyte friendly, thanks to the 730HD’s 1.2x optical zoom, automatic vertical keystone correction with a range of ±30 degrees, and easy-slide horizontal correction. The projector also feature’s Instant Off technology to ensure that you won’t spend a lot of time sitting around, waiting for it to power up or down.
In addition to HDMI, it also features Component Video, S-Video, and USB Type A and B digital inputs, along with a USB 2.0 port you can use to share photos with the fam. It also includes four pre-set color modes, including a special color mode dedicated to gaming, so you can project up to 300 inches of horizontal image, whether you’re inside or outside.
