Epson Home Theater Projectors – EU and US Projector Equivalents


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…

Epson Projectors:

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 =
HC 705 =
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 =

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
