The EH-TW6100 delivers a 40,000:1 contrast ratio and is enhanced by Epson’s 3LCD technology to provide superb quality images. An equally high White and Colour Light Output of up to 2,300 lumens means you can watch content during the day, without sitting in the dark.
With five different colour modes and an auto-colour optimiser, you can enjoy your content rather than adjusting the menu settings. You can easily align projections with horizontal and vertical keystone correction to ensure a straight and correct image, and also use the split-screen function to watch two sources at the same time.
The front facing ventilation system with low-noise fan means you are not subjected to distracting, uncomfortable hot air while watching content. The two embedded 10W speakers support content, while photos of past holidays and outings can be easily displayed using the slideshow function.
3D content is noticeably bright thanks to Epson’s luminance enhancement technology. A simple press of a button converts 2D high definition films and video games into 3D, so you can experience even more 3D content. Thanks to the 3D depth adjustment function, depth perception and image quality is much more enhanced than previous Epson 3D projectors. Featuring a pair of lightweight, rechargeable Radio Frequency (RF) active shutter 3D glasses, included with the projector, you can enjoy content without interference. You can keep these industry standard glasses for future upgrades, and use them with other home projector and TV manufacturers.
Bring the power of 3D right to your living room with the EH-TW6100. Immerse yourself in eye popping 3D adventures, 2300 lumens colour and white light output, Full HD, 1080p performance and a remarkable contrast ratio of up to 40,000:1.

Epson's TW6100 certainly looks like it means business, and its big, centrally-mounted lens and glossy black finish all smack of a projector with serious home cinema ambitions. Its on-paper specs look very promising as well. In addition to the inevitable Full HD resolution, this LCD-based PJ claims a contrast ratio of 40,000:1, and a high brightness of 2,300 Lumens. The TW6100 also delivers Full HD Active 3D playback, with one pair of rechargeable RF-type 3D glasses included.
Tucked away within the Epson's menus, meanwhile, are such up-market features as multiple settings for a built-in dynamic iris system (used to deliver optimum contrast at all times), colour management tools, gamma and colour temperature controls, and a resolution booster.
The healthy 1.6x optical zoom offered by the TW6100’s lens arrangement makes it easier to adapt to your room layout. Yet unfortunately it doesn’t offer vertical image shift - a feature I would really expect on a £1,200 projector. A nifty slider on the projector’s top enables speedy adjustment of the image’s keystone settings, but using this will, of course, destroy the pixel-for-pixel purity of a Full HD source.
Epson TW6100W - Design
Aside from the aforementioned wireless HD video transmission (which we’ll cover in more detail in a moment), the only difference between the TW6100W we have here and the TW6100 is that the former wears white while the cheaper model wears black. Both models enjoy the same attractive if surprisingly (for its price level) large design, complete with pleasingly subtle curves, bold grilles either side of the centrally mounted lens, and an engaging glossy finish. In short, you can leave either of the TW6100 models in a prominent position in a typical living room without it ruining your decor.
‘Hard’ connections on both projectors include two HDMIs, a composite input, a component video input, a D-Sub PC input, an RS-232 port for system integration, and even audio ports to support a built-in 2x10W speaker system. We would never advocate that you use this in any but the most casual of circumstances, though, as the audio produced sounds puny versus the size of the pictures you’re watching, while also sounding dislocated from the on-screen action.
Epson TW6100W - WirelessHD System
The WirelessHD system you get with the TW6100W is an improvement over the system that debuted on last year’s Epson projectors, in that the transmitter offers five HDMI inputs compared to the single input found on last year's range (making it a handy HDMI switchbox). In addition, the receiver is built into the projector rather than being an external item.
As with the original system, the latest WirelessHD engine can still deliver cable-free Full HD 2D and 3D images from your sources to the projector. During a week of rigorous testing we didn't suffering so much as a single dropped connection.
While this is obviously a great help for most people, the WirelessHD system does suffer from a couple of flaws. First and worst, our tests discovered that the WirelessHD system adds a delay in picture reproduction of around 60ms compared to using a normal HDMI cable. This is high enough to make the Wi-Fi option more or less a non-starter for serious video game fans.
The other issue is that we never managed to get the WirelessHD transmitter to work well in conjunction with an Onkyo SR508 receiver. In fact, it didn’t want to see outputs from the receiver at all. We can’t say how widespread with other receivers this problem might be, but we’d be surprised if the SR508 was the only affected model.
