Epson PowerLite Cinema 550 LCD Projector Review

This site has moved to AVReport.com

Home Theater Magazine reviews Epson PowerLite Cinema 550 720p LCD Projector. It is impressive to note outstanding black levels of this projector and smoth gradation of quantization ramp that reflects in very good reproduction of HD and DVD sources. Due to auto iris feature, contrast ratio in Theater mode was measured at whopping 3,927:1 which is better than what Epson claims in the spec.
Here is a list of other features that make this projector stand out in the crowd:
  • Vertical and horizontal lens-shift options
  • Average 3:2 pulldown ( compared to almost none for Sanyo PLV-Z4 and Panasonic PT-AE900 )
  • Accepts 1080p signal - something most high-enders lack as of today, making this projector future-proof
  • Loads of picture adjustments. If you are a tweaker - PowerLite 550 is for you.
  • Inexpensive - MSRP $2500 with even less street price
