Conclusions about the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 5010e LCD Projector

The Highlights

  • Built-in 3D sync emitter
  • Excellent value

My Wish List

  • A motorized focus control would make precise setup easier

This is now the fourth generation of Epson LCD projector I've worked with since I started reviewing. Each one has been better than its predecessor. The 5010e sets a standard for value and performance. By all measurements, this projector is very accurate and provides all the necessary controls to achieve that accuracy. Light output is beyond expectations for this price point. The addition of wireless HDMI and 3D put it even more over the top. I expect at least some fear among Epson's competitors. I'm confident that their efforts will simply up the game for everyone. I can't wait to see what everyone has at CEDIA later this year! For now, the PowerLite Home Cinema 5010e comes with my highest recommendation.
