Epson Home Cinema 2200 Review

Most projectors promise amazing picture quality, but not all deliver. Annoying rainbows, blurred details, and dim colors can all ruin your viewing experience. Not all projectors are designed for easy installation and operating some models is a complicated process.

The Epson Home Cinema 2200 promises that it delivers on both image quality and ease of setup. It’s also a good choice for gamers and anyone else that wants to turn their living room into a home theater. While the advertising sounds great, it’s always a good idea to take a closer look before taking the Epson 2200 home. (>>> Check current price on Amazon)

Image Quality

The Epson 2200 home cinema projector doesn’t comprise when it comes to picture quality. The projector is designed to produce stunningly bright, crisp, clear images. It’s a true 3LCD projector so you’ll enjoy an immersive viewing experience. Colors are vivid and true-to-life, thanks to the 3-chip technology.

A dynamic contrast of 35,000:1 ensures crisp whites and deep blacks. Ambient lighting isn’t a problem with 2,700 lumens. The projector is also named best-in-class for color brightness. With full HD 1080p resolution and 4K compatibility, you’ll find it difficult to back to watching movies and shows on your TV.

Pros

  • Bright, crisp colors in ambient lighting
  • Smooth, detailed images
  • Flexible installation
  • Dynamic contrast ratio
  • Virtually silent cooling fan

Cons

  • The small internal speakers produce a tinny sound that is often distorted at higher volume levels.
  • The projector does not come with automatic shutoff which can shorten the lamp life if it’s frequently left on when hot in use.

Ease of Installation and Set-Up

The Epson 2200 is a compact projector, weighing 7.9 lbs. You won’t strain a muscle pulling the projector out of the box. You will need between 8 to 10 feet of space if you have to throw a 100” on-screen image.

With both horizontal and vertical keystone adjustment, along with manual zoom and focus, it’s a breeze to align images. It also allows for a more flexible installation. If you’re having trouble centering images, you can take advantage of the geometric correction function.

The last thing you want is to have problems operating the projector when you want to relax with a movie or game. The 2200 home cinema projector comes with a built-in Android operating system, and a simple to navigate TV interface. With an included remote and Google Voice Assist, you won’t have any problems operating the projector.

You can also take advantage of four color modes so onscreen images appear exactly how you want. Multiple ports and streaming capabilities make the projector a breeze to use.

Consumer Impressions

Consumer impressions are overwhelmingly favorable, especially concerning image brightness and clarity. Ambient lighting isn’t a concern, and customers love the four adjustable color modes. Its relative lightweight is also appreciated, along with how easy it is to install the projector. The only complaints are about the small internal speakers. Audio quality is still comparable to the speakers found in most TVs.

Conclusion

There is a lot to like about the Epson Home Cinema 2200 projector. It’s relatively lightweight, comes with a flexible installation, and is a breeze to use. Even first-time projector owners won’t have any trouble setting the projector up. With the remote and Google Assist, you can operate it from your couch.

Where the 2200 home cinema projector excels is with image quality. The projector delivers on its promise of producing bright, crisp, vivid pictures frame by frame. Once you get used to watching movies and programs with the projector, your home TV may become obsolete.
