Epson dims the lights, spotlights a new home theater projector

Jan 6, 2009

Do you love your home theater setup?  Do you sit at work all day, counting down the minutes until you can go home and watch a movie?  Are you thinking about your home theater right now?  So is Epson.  They want to be a part of it, and as a result, they've announced a new home theater projector - the PowerLite Home Cinema 6500 UB.

The 6500 UB hopes to tempt you by offering up a native 1920x1080 resolution plus a 75,000:1 contrast ratio.  The projector's bulb shines at a bright, hot 1,600 lumens and the lens packs a 2.1x zoom ratio.  If you want to try the 6500 UB on the side, don't worry, it can keep quiet - the projector's fan is a quiet 22 dB.

The PowerLite Home Cinema 6500 UB will cost around $3,000 when it hits retail, but no official release date is known yet.  You'll have some time to figure out whether or not it's right for you.
