Epson LS500 Reviews

Home theater perfection!

By Dan
Rated 5 out of 5

The Epson LS500 arrives in a box that is approximately 8 x 2 feet - be prepared for it to ship via a large truck! The packaging is huge to protect the screen (rolled) and frame from damage. Assembly of the screen was involved, but straight-forward as long as the instructions are followed. I found watching videos of the screen assembly to be helpful prior to tackling the project - if you're not handy, have somebody else do it - creasing or damaging the screen would be a permanent and expensive error. Given that the unit must sit a precise distance from the wall, furniture choices matter. Too tall of a cabinet will limit screen placement, as the image is projected several inches above the top of the unit as well. Epson has an on-screen display guide that indicates placement of the screen once the unit is powered on. I would hesitate to mount this on a table or cabinet if it's likely to get bumped or moved - any movement of the projector is immediately noticed on screen, and takes a bit to realign. Once roughly aligned, the unit can be adjusted digitally for vertical and horizontal alignment, and 'blanking' allows trimming of the image in any direction. The image is superb when watching HD content, on par or better than the traditional 4K tv upstairs. After tweaking color and sharpness settings, I find the picture to be crisp and warm. I opted to pair the unit with a 4K Apple TV, and Sonos surround system to deliver auditory thunder, but it became necessary to use an optical converter to connect the Epson ARC port to the Sonos optical port. I've had no issues with the unit after two months - my only minor complaint is that the fan noise is noticeable on the projector if listening to audio quietly. This is the ultimate setup for sports or 4K movies!

Reinvents the home theater

So, the first thing you want to know about the Epson EpiqVision Ultra LS500 Laser Projection TV - 120" is that it is not a traditional projector – it is way better. In fact, it is not even fair to the Epson to compare it to traditional projectors. Traditional projectors like the one my family uses in our home theater require an almost perfectly dark room to operate. The Epson EpiqVision Ultra LS500 can operate in practically any light. We have our Epson EqipVision setup on a wall opposite 24 feet of floor to ceiling windows and adjacent to a wall with an eight-foot patio door and the picture Epson produces in the room on a clear blue day is better than a flat screen TV. For example, there is no reflection of the bright outdoor light as you would see with a flat screen TV and the image is clear and bright. Epson marketing photos show the EpiqVision in a bright room adjacent to windows, and I must admit I was dubious but sure enough the Epson EpiqVision produces a clear, bright image even in a bright room. Plus, the picture is good from nearly every angle, Epson says 178 degrees and I can’t argue with them as everywhere in the room the picture looks great. We have had the Epson EpiqVision Ultra LS500 Laser Projection TV setup for about a week and absolutely love the device. Let me count the reasons: 1. Super bright picture with incredibly high picture quality. My photos were taken in the middle of the day, and you can see that the picture quality is incredible. Black is dark, not a shade of grey absolutely amazing. 2. Built-in stereo sound. Most projectors will have a single speaker if they have sound at all, the Epson has dual speakers facing the viewers and they sound great. If that doesn’t meet your audio needs, you can connect to a Bluetooth speaker or use the audio out or HDMI ports to connect to an amplifier 3. AndroidTV is makes for a truly smart TV. SmartTV’s have been around for a long time but AndroidTV is far superior as you can now install any application available in the Android Play Store and you are not prohibited the the apps that the TV manufacture has adopted. Our experience with flat screen TV’s is you have only a limited number of apps that are available for your TV. AndroidTV has a massive marketplace for video, audio, infotainment, and games 4. Easy to setup. My husband and I took a time lapse video of the screen setup, and it took less than 20 minutes to unbox and setup the projection screen 5. The projector and screen are perfect for 4K movies: We have tried Netflix, and Disney + and the video quality is amazing. 6. Perfectly matched for gaming: My son connected his Xbox One S to it for a 10- foot Fortnite match – what a blast! We even connected our old Wii and played double tennis – the huge screen makes it all that more fun. A note regarding installing the screen. Epson provides hardware for installing the screen permanently to a wall with up to 8 bolts. This would be fine in a dedicated home theater room but for those that do not want to put holes in their walls we discovered a solution – 3M Command Strips. We purchased 10 7.5-pound Jumbo Utility Hooks and placed eight at the top of the screen and two at the bottom. It took less than 3 minutes to hang the screen on the wall. No need for drilling holes, easy to reposition the screen higher, lower, or side-to-side, and gives you the freedom to move the screen to another room without any hassle. If Epson’s product people read this, try it for your self the 3M hooks work perfect. We had planned on using the projector in our home theater room that was built in the mid 2000’s. Problem for us was that we had no power outlets on the wall at the front of the room, and all of our cables were pulled back to an amplifier in the back of the room. For us to use the EpiqVision in our home theater we would have had to upgrade the audio system in the room and bury the electrical cord along a wall. (A project for my husband some other day!) The beauty is that we found that there is another way to watch movies where we don’t have to be stuck in a dark room like mushrooms. I will close with this, technology has evolved how we consume content. The need for dedicated dark home theater room for a cinematic experience is dulled when a smart phones, tablets, and flat screen TV’s can bring just about any movie you. The Epson EpiqVision LS500 brings the home theater out of the windowless basement and allows you to have a big screen experience in just about any room you have the room. This is a review for the Epson EpiqVision Ultra LS500 Short Throw Laser projector that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.

Great value for the price tag!

I've been using this projector for more than 6 months and I am very happy with my purchase. Overall this is a really good (A-) product for the money. The only downside (why A- versus A+) to the product is cabinet requirements and how far the projector must be from the projector screen to achieve the 120", and the level of difficulty (lots of patience required here) to get the image perfectly aligned within the projector screen (especially when you want the projector in a specific location on the wall!) without any bleeding of the image onto the wall or letterboxing on the screen. However, not a terrible cabinet to wall layout, but nevertheless the proportions are aesthetically not grade A especially since a good fitting cabinet with the right proportions is expensive (~3-4k) or requires a custom media console / cabinet job . The projector screen is included with the purchase which is great. The projector screen is easy to assemble and mount on the wall. Connectivity with the projector is trivial via HDMI, including getting CEC HDMI (from my Apple TV via my Marantz AVR) working and getting enhanced 4K running. The brightness, image resolution, and handling of fast motion without pixelation is high quality and I would argue at the entry of the prosumer level. I have (to friends) and would continue to highly recommend this product.

Best replacement for traditional TV

One of the best addon to your livein room. The good part with this one compared to 5040 is that you hardly find a difference compared to a 4K TV. Crisp images, Works just out of the box and to add a 4K google TV dongle along with a 120" projector screen inclusive which are top class.

The One and Only LS500 !!!

I received my Epson LS500 more than a month ago. Be prepared to receive a huge box at home! Very well packed comes the 120” screen and projector. I personally watched some very good Epson videos (available on YouTube) to learn how to set it up. Projector installation is straight forward but for the screen, you will need some time. Not so difficult to set up, but I would recommend doing it with some help. In my case I had some issues with the installation as my wall wasn’t big enough for the 120” screen, so I had to do some adjustments and sacrifice a couple of tension springs to make it work, and it did. It was worth every minute after I was done. I think it is important to notice that the projector needs to sit at a not small distance from the wall so finding the proper furniture can be a bit challenging. I added a picture with the corresponding distances depending on the size of the projection you want. The fine tuning of the projected image on the screen is crucial. I was initially a bit frustrated trying to focus the top corners of the screen (specially letters). This was my first experience with an Ultra Short Throw so I learned that I was demanding something that was physically hard to achieve because of the angle of projection and how vertical you can get your screen to be. Once you put a movie on you will never notice this issue as your attention goes towards the center of the screen and the focus is as uniform as you need. I did spend some time playing around with Keystone and corner adjustment for fitting the image precisely in the screen. At the end of the day I restore it to factory settings and just blanked up a portion of the top screen where I was having some overspray. Picture brightness is just incredible. I placed the projector in a space with some windows that let natural light in plus ceiling led lights. Image brightness and quality are impressive even with all lights on. The absorbing light screen (UST ALR screen) does a fantastic job with this. I tested the projector for almost a month without the screen, shooting just on a plain white wall. I loved it, but I could notice that with natural light the image brightness was not enough. However, I have to say it was still surprising how good the picture quality is. The level of contrast and brightness just makes you forget you are using a projector. With lights on, the black level suffers making it no so not good for dark scenes and shadows. That’s the compromise of having a nice picture with ambient light. With lights off, the contrast ratio improves considerably. Projector comes with an Android TV stick that you can install in a hidden compartment in the projector. I had some issues as I couldn’t watch live sports on Hulu, but I updated the system software and Hulu app and it worked like a breeze. Just for fun I tested with and Amazon Fire TV stick, which also fits perfectly inside the front compartment and works no problem. It also comes with 2 remote controls one for both projector and the Android TV and the other just for the Epson Android TV stick in case you decide to use it with another device. In color modes and image adjustments I’m just using factory default parameters. Bright Cinema color mode works OK for me. For sports, I sometimes switch to Dynamic mode to pump up brightness. On the cons side, the incorporated speakers are just not at the level of the rest that the projector provides. I recommend you make sure you have a proper audio system to connect to this machine before even turning it ON otherwise it won’t be fair for the projector. Epson is very upfront about this, and I am very glad I knew this ahead of time. I would qualify this product as a full experience. The image quality is just the best I have seen from a projector, the 120-inch screen size makes you feel like you are in the movie and it does make a big difference compared to any “big” Led or Oled screens available in the market. I would highly recommend the product, just make sure you have enough space for it, and make sure you pair it with a good sound system and enjoy!!!

Great Product

I had the previous LS100 and compared to the LS500, this device s smaller and also the image a little bit at the same distance, but the image is nicer, richer in colors and brighter. Excellent product, excellent service from B&H too.
