The Epson EH-TW5210 is a 3D ready, home cinema projector that is aimed at a home user instead of a business and is in the same range as the previously reviewed Epson EH-TW5350. The only bid difference between the two projectors is the features and a couple of tech specs but these differences make up £100 with the EH-TW5210 priced at £499 and the EH-TW5350 costing £599.
From the get go the two projectors look exactly the same, the both come in the rounded white glossy casing with the rear of the projector sitting much higher than the front side, making it look like it is slanting downwards from the front. Left to the lens is the fan exhaust which pushes out all the heat from the bulb as well as a secondary air vent on to the right of the lens.
Design wise, the EH-TW range is a nice looking projector, in a market where projectors are normally rectangular and dull colours, Epson have made a projector which will sit nicely in ones home and match a lot of modern room designs if you purchase your units etc from places like Ikea.
Exactly like the TW5350, the EH-TW5210 has a range of different set up aids which are bundled with the projector, on top is a range of buttons which help set the keystone control and a manual focus slider to get picture sharpness at the right distance away from your wall. Underneath the projector is a drop down leg that helps angle the projector upwards as well as legs on the rear which screw down to create the right angle for different surface levels. With the remote control you control the keystone as well as a handy tool that shows a blue rectangle grid to get the picture sitting correctly, useful for pointing the projector at an angle if you can not have it facing directly.
