Epson Releases Low Budget HD Projector

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

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.
