OK, my thanks to the folks at Epson America, marketing, for putting together this handy-dandy list that now cross references current US and EU Epson projectors, so you all can keep things straight – which has always been a challenge. Here ya go:
I’ll trust Epson to have gotten this right, but if anyone finds a flaw…
US EU (and many other parts of the word, too).
HC 8350 = EH-TW3600
HC 8345 = EH-TW3200 (??? on the HC8345 – I’m trying to find out! -art)
HC 8500 = EH-TW4400 (Actually TW4400 has lower contrast ratio, but this is what they carry that is essentially comparable.)
PC 9500 = EH-TW5500
HC 705 = TW450
MM 62 = DM3 (Actually, this is the same as MovieMate60. Other countries did not replace the MM60 DVD combo, with the MovieMate 62.)
MM 85HD = N/A (art’s note: Too bad, EU, this is a cool 720p all-in-one)
HC 21000 = N/A (since the EU doesn’t have the Home / Pro dual line, they have the 31000)
PC 31000 = EH-R2000
Epson did not send me the equivalent to the PC61000, but a reader did let me know that its the
PC 61000 = EH-R4000 (has the 1M:1 contrast ratio).
OK, people – save this info, bookmark this page… I plan to not be able to memorize this info, which means I’ll still mostly be talking US model projectors when I write. -art
