About

Epson 3700 — Bright and Contrast, Large-Zoom Full HD Projector with 3D

Epson 3700

If you’re a movie buff and like large screens, you cannot miss the Epson Home Cinema 3700 review. This projector offers high brightness and color consistency, deep blacks and whites, screen up to 180 inches, and more. It can be placed in a variety of locations thanks to its flexible keystone regulation parameters (both vertical and horizontal positioning can be adjusted) and the large zoom capability.

The projector isn’t fitted with the direct wireless protocols but supports the streaming dongles. It integrates good speakers with loud performance, while the noise of the device itself can be bothersome in the silent environment.

Design

The Epson Home Cinema 3700 is bulky and heavy. It’s 6.4 inches tall, 16.1 inches wide, and 12 inches deep. The 15.2lbs of weight don’t provide for the high portability of this unit. To hold this weight and size well, the projector has two regulated feet in the front, and a single non-regulated one in the back.

The shape of the device is rounded, with the black-rimmed front panel and the regulated lens with the manual zoom regulation. On top, there are two dials defining the vertical and horizontal lens adjustment, and a set of operation buttons. On the rear panel, there are HDMI, USB, PC connections, and the audio out port. The Epson 3700 remote has a standard design, with white buttons grouped on the black surface.

Features

The projector integrates the 3LCD technology, backed up by the 3,000-lumens lamp lasting from 2,500 to 5,000 hours. The brightness is equal for whites and colors. The native resolution of the Epson – Home Cinema 3700 makes 1920x1080, with 2 million pixels present on the screen. The Epson Image Enhancement Technology provides the Super-resolution effect. The color reproduction comprises of over 1 billion shades while the dynamic contrast makes 70,000:1. The 3D playback is supported.

The zoom settings allow for 1.6x manual zoom, the keystone regulation enables 60% vertical and 24% horizontal correction. The screen size varies from 30 to 300 inches. The 110-inch display is available from 10.5ft. The Epson 3700 throw distance varies between 3.2- and 26.2ft.

The input lag for this model makes 28ms. Connections include two HDMI 1.4a ports (one MHL-enabled), three USB ports (including type-A, service USB, optical HDMI power), PC input, and audio output. Wireless streaming is supported via the relevant devices.

The projector produces 35 dB noise. It’s equipped with the two stereo speakers rated at 10W each.

Performance

The projector has a diverse menu with multiple adjustment options including the regulation of the color output. There are two modes available for 3D format and five for 2D. The image parameters can be tweaked in each mode.

The contrast image with deep saturated blacks and plenty of detail, warm solid whites, and non-smudged grays is typical for each mode. The color vividness varies between the modes from the natural hues to the sharply highlighted peaks, without the rainbow effects. Usually, the brightness of the display is even in a well-lit room.

Last but not least to mention in the Epson 3700 review is the high-quality Full HD streaming and screen sharing via the MHL and the streaming devices. The input lag is unnoticeable. The integrated speakers feature distinct bass and are quite loud for a small or middle-sized room.
