Since good things come to those who wait (or pre-order
), we're thrilled to see our patience has paid off while waiting for Epson's EMP-TW1000
to head stateside. As predicted, the svelte new projector rocks the PowerLite moniker, while maintaining the bevy of impressive specs and curvaceous design. Beneath the hood of the PowerLite Pro Cinema 1080 is Epson's own C2 Fine 1080p 3LCD
chips, OptiCinema optics, E-TORL lamp, an AccuCinema lens, and "Absolute Black Technology" which provides a 12,000:1 contrast ratio. While you won't be able to grab this US-bound beauty until next January, you can use all this extra time to start pinching those pennies, as this bad boy will run you $4,999 when it finally lands.
