Epson Home Cinema 1060 vs Optoma HD27

Outstanding quality projector for the price must meet all your expectations. It's high time to compare what is better Epson 1060 or Optoma HD27. Whether you expect good productivity for sports watching or game playing – these two units are about to satisfy any your visual wish.

Perfectness is reachable with such giants as Epson and Optoma projects. Although the HD27’s recommended distance for usual 100” screen it is far less than it was for the Epson.

The one thing, I do miss is the 12V Trigger input on the EPSON projector - which I like on the OPTOMA family. The benefit of having that is that you do not have to use the separate remotes for the Screen and the Projector - but I guess you gain some and you lose some.

If color reproduction is important for you (sure it is) so there is an interesting fact Epson 1060 has 1.07 billion of colors, while 1073.4 is the number for Optoma HD27 coloring. Is it impressing? In comparison to Optoma HD27, Epson Home Cinema does not have audio output. The soundbar can`t be connected to Epson 1060 via Bluetooth, but you can to output sound to external speakers by connecting them directly to the video equipment or computer you have connected to the Epson Home Cinema 1060.

Epson Home Cinema 1060 pros & cons

Pros of Epson Home Cinema 1060:
  • The picture is bright, but not over-saturated or washed out.
  • Bright output 3,000 lumens or higher.
  • For sound, it has an AUX out to connect to a sound system.
  • This model is that the main output lens is tucked in deep the unit, which makes viewing the screen comfortable to your eyes because you do not get that bright side view light in your view like with projectors with the main out lens sticking out the body frame.
Cons of Epson Home Cinema 1060:
  • The email configuration (over Wi-Fi) does not allow domain names, you need to use IP addresses because the projector evidently does not support DNS lookup.
