Luckily I had the opportunity to test Epson 1060 vs 2030 and I’d like to share my thoughts on these home cinema’s to help you choose the right one.
Epson 1060 has 3,100 lumens which make the visuals quite impressing and the colors seemed to be very accurate. Epson 1060 works well under sunlight, the picture wasn’t blurred and the quality of the projection didn’t decrease at all. Moreover, I didn’t notice any rainbow effect which is quite common for the most home cinemas.
I didn’t notice any lagging while projecting the image during the gameplay.
Epson has an amazing feature which is an additional MHL output, so I could connect my tablet and my phone to the projector.
Now I’d like to compare Epson 2030 vs 1060.
Epson 2030 has a smaller amount of lumens, so the visuals are not as bright in comparison with Epson 1060. Yet the quality of the image is still good, and I have used the “Fine picture” mode which makes the visuals even more detailed. The key feature is that this projector has a 3D viewing option, which is great because I’m a big fan of 3D movies, although the glasses must be purchased separately.
Both devices have efficient cooling system which leads to irritating noise, but this issue can be resolved with the Eco mode, and both work well during the day and night. Epson 1060 has more lumens and the picture that it projects is a lot brighter versus 2030. Epson 1060 has better visual and sound quality but lacks 3D viewing option and necessary modes for better performance, which are present in 2030.
If you prefer a powerful device with better image quality, then it’s better to pick Epson 1060. But if you want a more versatile device with specific modes for gaming and you‘re a fan of 3D movies, then it’s better to choose Epson 2030.
