If you are one of the millions of Americans who can’t seem to find a large enough TV for movies, a home theatre projector would the answer. Projectors come in a wide range of prices: as low as $79.99 at Walmart or as much as three thousand dollars for one of Sony’s HD projectors. In this article, I will compare two home theatre projectors that differ greatly in price and range of capabilities.
The price difference is caused by each of the projector’s pixel density and resolution. Sony’s HD SXRD projector has a resolution size of 1920×1080, 1,800 lumens brightness, and is 3D compatible. The Epson Powerlite X27 comes with LCD display technology, has a brightness of 2700 lumens, and promises 10,000 hours of lamp usage.
If you had an HD SXRD, you could project a screen display size ranging between 40 and 300 inches. While specifics on the display screen size of the Epson could not be found on Walmart’s website, one review stated that it “can still be used if necessary by classroom size of fewer than 30 students.”
Epson’s X27 does have a higher level of brightness; this would make it more suitable for use in brighter lighting than the HD SXRD. Although, the 1800 lumens shining through the HD SXRD is still bright enough for most situations when you be using a projector in your home.
Sony puts some sophisticated technology in the SXRD although it’s not for those on a tight budget.
