Bottomline: The Epson EH-TW8200 produces natural colors, offers theater experience at home and has abundance of features. If you're looking for a powerful home theater projector that is great for both 2D and 3D videos, this could be the right choice.

If you want to have theatrical experience at home then the Epson EH-TW8200 can make it possible for you. The 3D and Full HD home projector is equipped with 3LCD and C2 fine technology. It has contrast ratios of up to 6,00,000:1 for the movies and gaming experience. You can also convert the 2D content easily into 3D with it. This projector is made for home entertainment, people who love to enjoy movies and games on the big screen with deep, dark blacks and vivid color. The unit is fairly large and not suited to carry around, but meant to be securely mounted.

Setting up the giant
Setting up the projector is quite easy, thanks to its 2.1x optical zoom and the manual lens shift. You can easily move the image up/down, and left/right using the lens shift button located on the top without physically moving the projector. The front panels houses an air intake/exhaust that keeps it cool during the operations, making it usable even in tight space without worrying about ventilation or overheating.

The high-end THX-certified projector has 2 HDMI ports, AV and a VGA ports. You can connect your PC, laptop or other supported device to mirror the screen. On the top are the optical lens shift controls that allow the lens to be adjusted horizontally and vertically. But one has to take care of the projection distance.

Theatrical experience at home
Epson EH-TW8200 uses 3LCD technology which enhances resolution of the image blurred by the enlargement processing screen. The device comes with seven preset color modes with optimized color and brightness (luminance) to suit the viewing including Dynamic, Living room, Natural, Cinema, 3D Dynamic and 3D Cinema. It also has some interesting key features such as Frame interpolation technology, Picture-in Picture, Electric lens shutter etc.

It comes with multiple picture modes that lets you get started right away. Playing videos, PPTs, games and other contents on the projector was a pleasure with a wide color gamut, no visible aberrations and no ghosting. The unit comes with a 3D glass so that you can enjoy 3D contents. The 3D glasses has a rechargeable in-built battery. You can pair it by simply pressing a button on it.

The EH-TW8200 is capable of projecting anywhere between 30″-300″ inches. While playing the content you just need to adjust the lens position depending on distance. The projector is equipped with the Lamp Boost Technology that helps you to project images and videos clearly even in a dull background too. The 2400 lumens lamp provide clear and detailed video/image quality.

We played full HD and 3D movies on it while testing the projector, the overall experience was quite satisfactory. 2D to 3D conversion also works fine, though a little muffling was there. The EH-TW8200 is compatible with all types of contents in most formats. The projector is quite silent and you may barely notice its sound when the projector is running.
