Epson Home Theatre EH-TW6250 review: Bright gaming

Epson EH-TW6250

If I had plenty of wall space at home, the S$1,899 Epson Home Theatre EH-TW6250 Smart Gaming Projector would make a great addition. This 2,800-lumens projector comes with built-in Android TV, and has pretty decent latency for gaming — with just 20ms input lag.

Quick specs

  • 2,800 lumens at 1,920 x 1,080 pixels, 4K with pixel shift
  • Screen sizes from 40- to 500-inch
  • 10W speakers

We don't really review projectors much, because to be honest, they are pretty niche (though we make an exception for smaller projectors). Not everyone has the space at home for one, though. And most places where you can put a projector, you're probably better off with a TV. Still, the EH-TW6250 is perfect if you want to turn a wall into a gaming spot, and don't want to use a TV to keep your pristine wall clear of stuff. Alternatively, if you have a really big wall, you can use the projector to become a humongous display that would otherwise cost a lot more. Epson says the projector can go up to 500 inches, but I have nowhere to test this. But I did get a very comfortable 60-inch projection that looked bright, crisp and vibrant. Colours were great, too.

Setting up the EH-TW6250 is pretty simple. Just pluck in the Android TV module (if it's not in), adjust the feet to the right angles, power on, pair the remote and you're set. The bundled remote works for both Android TV, and the projector features. If you need to adjust the projection, the sliders are all handily located at the top. They are really easy to tweak. You can choose from four video modes: Dynamic, Natural, Cinema, and Vivid. I mostly stuck with Dynamic, it just looked better to my eyes. I also tested gaming by using the Genki Covert Dock to link the Nintendo Switch to the projector's sole HDMI port. There wasn't any noticeable input lag during my Hades run.

If you're planning to use this to replace your TV, the lack of HDMI ports may be a deal breaker. If you're plugging in a console, you'll have to make do with the projector's 10W speakers or use a Bluetooth speaker. They are fine, but I much prefer having an eARC soundbar like the Sonos Beam 2 or the Apple HomePods. Another thing to note is that while Epson calls the EH-TW6250 a 4K projector, its native resolution is actually 1080p. Instead, the projector uses pixel shift technology (two overlapping 1080p images) to create a 4K image. However this isn't recognised by apps like Netflix, which detects the projector as HD. But the projected video looks sharp, and clear enough to me.

The Epson Home Theatre EH-TW6250 is a pretty good projector that packs bright scenes, and great colours. It's also a great way to play games on a big screen. Get it from Shopee or Lazada.
