Epson EH-TW7400 3LCD Projector Review & Comments

Thanks for the review Steve - been keen to hear about this one. Think I'll be more inclined to go for the 9400 rather than 7400 for the black form factor, better contrast as well as being able to handle 4k/60.

You said that the USB port at the back was for the wireless LAN? What's that used for?

There were some folks that managed to get this sub-£1000 on Black friday, an absolute bargain !!!

So it seems this Epson hasn't change much since the 7300 which I owned for a month. :D
Nice BIG and bright machine with advanced features, but the 'blacks' and shadow details were very poor.

The bright scenes and colours are all fine, but when it comes to dark... well that's probably the worst i even seen on a projector. :(

I've got the 9300 and the only niggle I have is not being able to save screen blanking positions in the memory. In all other respects it's an absolute bargain.

Can you share what customized gamma settings you used to achieve a gamma of 2.4 for SDR content?

Can you please comment on 3D performance?

Phil did get a pair of glasses with the TW7300 he reviewed last year, and if you take a look at the review you'll see he wasn't that impressed. Since the two are almost identical, I doubt there's been much of an improvement with the TW7400.

Sorry, I didn't make a note and the projector has gone back now.

Would the room and screen not affect the settings?
You're right, the room, the screen, and the lamp would all have an effect. That's why using someone else's settings is not something I'd recommend.

Take it you’ve never seen one of those DLP 4K e-shifters yet. :D

So what would be the best JVC at this price point which is superior in terms of the blacks? And how would it stack up against the 7400 in respect to other features?

you mentioned that "needs to be in the Cinema preset with contrast set to maximum for the best HDR results."
Later on you mention that the cinema mode gives the least contrast, which makes me wonder, why is it then need to be in that mode?
And what is the reason to set contrast to maximum? is that some specific thing that needs to be done for HDR calibration?
