It looks like those not willing to settle for anything less than 1080p
in a projector will soon have a slightly more bearable option at their disposal, with Epson
today announcing its 3LCD PowerLite Home Cinema 1080, apparently the first projector of its kind to hit the $3,000 mark. In addition to that desirable 1920 x 1080 resolution, the projector also boasts an impressive 12,000:1 contrast ratio, along with the requisite HDMI 1.3 connectivity, and Epson's trademark "AccuCinema" lens system. All of which would seem to put it squarely in line with Epson's pricier 1080p PowerLite Pro Cinema
projector released earlier this year. Unfortunately, it looks like we'll have to wait for the official unveiling next week to actually get a look at the thing, although it won't be long after that before you can get your hands on it, with the projector set to be available from all the usual suspects sometime in April.
