Introduction to the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 5010e LCD Projector

For several years now, Epson has been the undisputed leader in the LCD projector market. They took a technology that seemed forever destined for boardrooms and churches and improved it gradually, until it became hard to tell apart from high-end LCoS and DLP designs. Enthusiasts who would have never considered an LCD are now taking a serious look at Epson's offerings.

By simply offering solid, well-designed products that perform above their price point, Epson has earned their place at the top of the heap. As the purveyors of 3LCD technology, they have color accuracy and contrast levels worthy of the finest home theaters. Each year, the black levels get a little blacker, the light output gets a little brighter and the color gets a little more accurate. After several generations of projectors, the 5010e and its brethren have achieved top performance while keeping the price firmly within reach of most of us.
