Epson TW9400 Review – 4K High-end Projector

There is no other home theater projector that compares to the Epson EH-TW9400 or Epson Pro Cinema 6050UB. The single-chip DLP devices that compete with this three-chip LCD variant have rainbow artifacts because they don’t have a color wheel. This projector is therefore capable of producing images that are vivid, finely detailed, and exquisitely saturated. Additionally, this device has a low input lag, HDR10 support, and even 3D (if that still floats your boat). It is a fantastic all-arounder.

With completely motorized lens adjustments and a lens memory for those utilizing a scope ratio (2.35:1) screen, Epson offers a number of high-end capabilities that are not only missing from competing projectors but also unavailable on others costing more than twice as much. The menus are easy to use, but if you’d need a professional calibration, there are ISF controls as well. An LCD projector’s light path isn’t sealed, thus it’s important to have a motorized lens cover to keep dust out of the projector’s lens.

Our Verdict


The Epson EH-SDR TW9400’s and HDR performance can’t currently be matched without spending thousands of pounds more, despite the fact that it isn’t a real 4K projector. In fact, it may be the best projector deal of the year.

Price and Availability

Price and Availability

In comparison to the competition, the Epson EH-TW9400 is larger and features a sturdy chassis with rounded edges. The pricing and build quality are a reflection of the economies of scale offered to the biggest projector manufacturer in the world. The matte black finish of the TW9400, which has dimensions of 520 x 450 x 193mm (WxDxH) and weighs 11kg, makes it more appropriate for specialized installations. Air intake and exhaust vents are on either side of a high-quality lens in the center. To shield the lens assembly from dust, an electronic lens cover opens when the power is on and closes once the power is turned off. This is critical because LCD projectors lack a sealed light path, which increases the possibility of airborne dirt accumulating and producing the dreaded “dust blobs.”

While you might use a white wall and install the TW9400 on a stand or the ceiling, a screen will provide the finest image quality. Simple setup is made possible by motorized lens controls that enable shift, focus, and zoom changes. Depending on the form of your screen, these can be saved using the lens memory and enable the development of unique aspect ratios between 1.78:1 and 2.35:1.

Picture Quality

Picture Quality

It offers the best HDR performance as long as you’re prepared to play about with the Epson EH-HDR TW9400’s settings. Its ability to convey at least a feeling of HDR’s wider light spectrum without making the image’s average brightness level unacceptably low is crucial to its effectiveness. It is true that the TW9400’s “average” HDR photographs show less of the whole light spectrum the brighter you set the brightness. But for a projector in the middle of the price range, this is a totally reasonable compromise. And the Epson EH-TW9400 is the only projector I’ve seen for the same price that makes this compromise work properly. In conclusion, HDR photos don’t look as dull and inferior to SDR photos as they do on more budget HDR projectors.

The EH-TW9400 produces visuals that are astonishingly bright, contrast-rich, and colorful without being overly burdened by heat or fan noise. The only major problem I can truly find with it is the continual work needed to always get the best out of its tremendous HDR talents, with the variety of drastically varied content that’s available. Some people will desire the sharper 4K effect of XPR DLP and native 4K competition. But if you put in some effort, you can make it sing with practically anything you want to throw at it. And that is what really counts.

    A solid product among the best in this price range

    By Harsh Agrawal 

    Overall Experience:

    Amazing brightness, however the upscaling falls short. High cost but 1080p native resolution. It’s great to watch videos in 4K or 1080p, but not in 720p or lower resolution. Excellent build quality and plastics, but the weight is excessive. the lens is created in Japan, however the product is made in China. No sound production and just 3500 hours on the bulb.
