The Epson EH-TW9300W is an elegant projector that (nearly) offers 4K image for a price that is clearly a lot lower than true 4K-models. Epson’s pixel shifting technology works remarkably well, and with video images most people will have trouble seeing the difference between this projector and a native 4K projector. Aside from that, the TW9300W has an excellent motorized lens with a wide zoom- and shift range as well as the possibility to save different lens settings as a preset. Especially for users that are working with a constant height-screen this is a big advantage.
We are also positive about the gradient and colour quality of the projector. When using the correct image settings the projector shows a beautiful picture, that can even be fine-tuned in great detail if you so desire.
Unfortunately we are less enthusiastic about the HDR-modes of the projector. Based on our experience, a connected HDR-source will not always be able to actually send an HDR-signal to the projector. We are not yet sure about the cause of this issue, but it might be due to the limitations of the hdmi-chip in the projector. Add to that the fact that the HDR-effect is limited with consumer projectors, which also means this Epson model, because of the relatively low light levels- this means that HDR has less impact than when compared with televisions. That said, the projector is capable to show the wider colour space of HDR-signals correctly, which does mean that there is an added advantage in that regard.
In short the Epson EH-TW9300W is an excellent projector. The average price of 3500 is quite high, but the regular TW9300, that comes without wireless hdmi-sender, offers the same functionality and image quality and is a more affordable alternative at a price of 3000. The problems in regard to the (HDR) signal compatibility means that we decided to not give the TW9300W an award.
