Epson Home Cinema 3010 Projector Overview
This Epson Home Cinema 3010 takes affordable performance, and value, to a new level. Epson may be almost a year late with their 3D capable home theater projectors, but in this case, well worth the wait.
The Home Cinema 3010 - or HC3010, is a $1599 3D capable projector that uses 3LCD technology. I would definitely say that this is a projector designed for the family room, the bonus room, or take it out in the backyard for a movie. The thing is, you can put it in your theater too, as it is competent competition for the few projectors around its price, that are more designed for a home theater than a family room.
It's just loaded with features, even if missing one or two from last year's Home Cinema 8350, which remains in the lineup. You'll find a long, and detailed overview of many of those features, including 3D abilities, split screen, and USB slideshows, further down this page.
I want to say at this point, that, overall, I thought the recently reviewed Optoma HD33 to be a breakthrough projector, and it was, in terms of 3D for $1499. Well, as you will read here, Epson is raising the bar. Not to sell the HD33 short (it has some impressive strengths), but the Epson just puts a whole lot more into their box, for essentially the same price.
The Home Cinema 3010, and the Home Cinema 3010e both receive our Hot Product award. Read on!
