Epson Releases Low Budget HD Projector

Posted Mon Sep 21, 2009 at 06:00 AM PDT by

Espon, fresh off of the release of several higher end projectors at CEDIA last week, has announced the release of their newest, most economically priceded, HD projector.

With a price of only $749, consumers are going to be giving this Epson projector some serious thought over the holiday season. The Epson Home Cinema 705HD boasts 2,500 lumens of light output, meaning that a dedicated home theater room isn’t as necessary; this projector will function in a wide variety of lighting conditions.

The 705 HD utilizes Epson’s three chip 3LCD technology and an energy efficient E-TORL lamp. Simple enough for the average consumer to set up, the Epson 705 HD does have one drawback: 720p resolution.

While certainly better than standard definition, 720p stretched out over a large area is less than appealing to the discerning HD enthusiast.

Epson’s Home Cinema 705HD will be available in October for an estimated price of $749.
