Christmas Gadget Wishlist: EPSON 30s Home Theater Projector

I spent the long weekend with the EPSON Philippines team for a regional business conference. As an observer, I was witness to the launching of EPSON’s new solutions business unit that basically consisted of POS solutions, small to medium business projectors, and of course, their printers.


Amidst the array of hardware solutions, one particular product caught my eye – the EPSON 30s Home Theater Projector, which is targeted towards consumers who want to set up an affordable home theater system in their living room. The 30s is very affordable for what it is, at a mere P36,000 to P40,000.00. Standard projectors usually set you back by around P60,000.00 and above. As a plus – this model comes with a built in DVD/CD player!

Definitely something I would love to have lying around the house because of its small form factor (it looks like a sub woofer – see [photo above).

For the more hard core users, you may want to avail of the 3LCD projectors with wireless 802.11g connectivity, or their network projectors that can push 3 screens wide simultaneously – useful for the discerning Excel spreadsheet.

I learned something about projectors. The home theater projectors are more suited to playing video. Although the enterprise projectors can also achieve the same feature, video motion projection from these types of projectors is not advisable.

I’d love to hook one up with the Wii. All you need is a wall. And there are always four in every room 🙂
