John, you call this a budget projector and sure looking at some of the other projector reviews on here it is cheap, but I look around websites and see them going for under £500. What is the difference between such "cheap" projectors and this one?

For me I don't even have a TV, know nothing about HD and all these £1000+ projectors seem to be for purists that want a proper "home cinema experience". I've been content enough watching things on my computer, but I would love to plug a projector into my computer/laptop and display a film on the wall whenever I rent a DVD or download a movie. I'm sure for my needs something much simpler would be fine, but I don't know enough about projectors to know what suits my needs; anyone make a suggestion on something £300-500 for that? I won't do this often enough to justify any more than that, maybe I just need to scour eBay for something like this, but last years model.

Thank you John for this review. It's not easy to find review on this TW2900...

And it's even more difficult to understand the differences between the epson TW2900 and the TW 3500 !

I have two questions about that :

- As far as I know, the only technical difference is contrast and Lumens. Could you confirm ?

- If true (and not a marketing thing), are those differences very significant ? Could you see the difference if you're a basic user ?

Thank for your opinion about that. I already ask in forum and others places, but no one seems to be able to respond...

Just purchased a brand new Epson eh-tw2900 3lcd projector and while displaying a grey background image I noticed areas of areas of purple and green haze over the surface of the image, visibile both when connecting my laptop with an s-vga and s-video.

What could be the source of this?
