Epson Home Cinema 720 Projector: Cons

October 5, 2008
  • A bit noisy (audibly) in brighter modes (though typical of DLP projectors)
  • Living room mode needs major work (adjusting) for good colors
  • Black levels are not as good as most of the competition
  • To replace lamp, you'll have to unmount projector if ceiling mounted
  • Pixel structure more visible than the DLP competition and also the Panasonic PT-AX200U
  • Not quite as film-like as much of the competition

Epson Home Cinema 720 Projector: Typical Capabilities

  • Lamp life
  • Types and quantities of inputs
  • Physical size
  • Control panel
  • Overall performance for black levels and shadow detail combined

Epson Home Cinema 720 Summary: The Bottom Line

The HC720 is priced right, has the warranty and support everyone wishes their projector came with, and overall, is an excellent projector. It's primary strengths are brightness, sharpness, and rich colors, and while it makes for a good projector for movies, those seeking perfection will look elsewhere. On the other hand, those who are looking for a great, all around projector, that will provide good movie watching and great sports and TV viewing, should have the Epson right around the top of their short list.

This Epson is destined to be a top selling projector with wide appeal, and solid performance and deservedly so. The Home Cinema 720 rates our Hot Product Award, for the reasons a projector should strive for; appeal to a large segment of the buying public, and some real strengths, notably (again), brightness, rich color, placement flexibility, and a crisp looking image.

Nicely done, Epson!
