Epson LS100: Transportable TV Substitution with 4000 ANSI Lumens

Epson Home Cinema LS100

The Epson LS100 review reveals that this ultra short-throw projector is positioned as an alternative to traditional TV. It means that you should choose the quality sources (1920×1080 Full HD and 3840×2160 Ultra HD). The insufficient-quality sources with low bitrate will create artifacts, noise, and other unpleasant things, which can spoil the whole impression.

Design

The device has average dimensions (19.4 x 17.2 x 7.4 inches) and weighs 24.3 pounds, but it still belongs to the transportable units. If necessary, the projector can be easily carried from room to room. The connector panel is located on the left rear side. The panel is covered by a removable lid. There’s a built-in control panel on the right side, which is rather useful in case you lose your remote. The model is equipped with 3 HDMI ports and can be integrated into your home media network using the LAN connector or an optional Wi-Fi adapter. The Epson Home Cinema LS100 review demonstrates that the unit is endowed with a built-in speaker system (16W mono) and you can connect sound sources to it (there is a 3.5mm audio input jack).

Features

The Epson Home Cinema LS100 has a high brightness level (4000 ANSI lumens) and this indicator allows you to successfully use the device in a living room filled with sunlight. The latest Epson matrixes (3LCD system) with a resolution of 1920x1200 in combination with a unique laser light source (that is able to dynamically vary brightness) provide a truly cinematic contrast level – 2.500.000: 1, which fully displays all the nuances of the play of light and shadow. It has a lifespan of about 30.000 hours, so there’s no need to periodically change the lamp as in an average projector.

Performance

The Epson Home Cinema LS100 laser projector mounting should be performed on a table, directly in front of the screen (in contrast to the traditional long-throw projectors, which should be located close to the rear wall of the room or under the ceiling). The Epson LS100 is designed for use in a living room or apartment with natural light, so it is brighter but not rich in contrast like classic home theater projectors. A dark-gray border around the image is noticeable even in a dimly lit room. Moreover, the horizontal stripes, when viewing widescreen content, differ from the screen color. Vivid scenes pleased me with believability, the accuracy of shades, and smooth color transitions. The rainbow effect is absent and there’s an ability to manually adjust the gamma to draw out shadows when needed. The Normal power consumption mode makes the projector operate at maximum brightness and the noise level is noticeable in quiet movie scenes, but it is easy to get used to it. The Quiet mode greatly reduces the noise, but the brightness drops to 66% of the maximum.
