Re: Epson TW-2000 (PRO UB) review

Just watched Tarzan on DVD... Wonderful colors! Even my hectic daughter started at the screen for about 30 min and stayed still . I'll play that movie again!!

PS: UB and PS3 combo is absolutely fantastic. I am as impressed by the PS3 as by the projector!

I will post some screenshots of BD material soon!

Re: Epson TW-2000 (PRO UB) review

Good news! I have bought the latest Sony DCS-W300 digital camera to have a more accurate representation of the pics! With time I will replace the shots I took above with better ones from my cam.
I have played with the settings (and saved them) until I had the nearest look to what is on the screen....well on my computer.

I have also upgraded to Blu-ray and hope to take some shots soon...

Re: Epson TW-2000 (PRO UB) review

The 1080UB is on my radar as my next PJ, although it is still more $ than I care to spend, so I will have to limp along with my AX100 for the time being......
Problem is this bulb has 2600 hrs, and my backup has about 2100 !!
I use the PJ for everything, so it's on quite a bit......I really hate it when I fall asleep without setting the timer!!

Buying more cheap stuff to get better sound is like challenging a dragon with a pocket knife.

hI muzz,

This FP is great. You may wait a bit until prices drop.

Thumbs up Re: Epson TW-2000 (PRO UB) review

I've read alot about it, this thread, and the large one at another location, and it sure seems like you guys enjoy it that's for sure.

I know YOU are at least!!

Prices should come down soon, as it's pretty much still MSRP minus the 200 rebate.

Always something Ahmed!! ARRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH

Re: Epson TW-2000 (PRO UB) review

OK Muzz! I have not much time. But I'll show 2 BD pics taken with my new cam. The first one is brighter than normal (auto setting). The second one is much more accurate (manual settings) with my computer brightness turned all the way up.

Re: Epson TW-2000 (PRO UB) review

By the way. Looking back at the pictures taken with my old camera in page one of this thread makes me uncomfortable. Quality is way too bad.
After my exams, I'll do all these shots again with my new cam and replace the older ones...

Re: Epson TW-2000 (PRO UB) review

Hello and Happy new year everybody!
And yes it's me again and I thought I'd wish the best for every buddy here for 2012!

Just some updates... my TW-2000 (PRO-UB) has had a horizontal line in the middle of the picture just before the end of warranty (my luck). I had the engine (MB and optical system) entirely replaced. The picture is good again but suddenly the IRIS failed... so again I'm waiting for another new engine. What bothers me is the new engine (with the IRIS that failed) has pretty NO convergence problem! I hope the next one will be likewise!

Let me here from you guys!

Hi Ahmed and welcome back.. It has been a long break!!

Isn't it always the way that things go wrong just outside of the warranty!
I hoped you get it all fixed OK..
