The more budget-friendly of the two high-end projectors launched today, the Epson EH-R1000 home entertainment projector will come in any colour you want, as long as it is white. It boasts a dynamic contrast ratio of 500,000 : 1 when auto-iris is turned on, or 25,000 : 1 when the feature is turned off.
However, what lurks under the R4000 is a different story: while the R1000 is only capable of a dynamic contrast ratio of up to 500,000 : 1, the R4000 takes the crown by delivering a jaw-dropping contrast ratio of up to 1,000,000 : 1.
Both the R1000 and R4000 home entertainment projectors will be available for sale locally by February next year. And if you have been conveniently ignoring the “high-end” words we have been slotting in throughout the article, now might be a good time to take notice of them. That is because the projectors will set you back a very pretty penny (S$6,999 and S$9,999 for the R1000 and R4000 respectively), so those interested in getting one next year might probably want to start fattening up their piggy banks now.
