PowerLite L730U Front

Announced back in February, Epson has now released eight new 3LCD projectors that take aim at the needs of businesses and schools reopening from the pandemic. The new PowerLite series of projectors—the L520W, L520U, L530U, L630U, L630SU, L635SU, L730U, and L735U—are designed for use in business, entertainment, and classroom environments. They use a laser light engine that lasts for up to 20,000 hours in Normal and Quiet modes (up to 30,000 hours in Extended mode). They have a native WUXGA resolution (1920x1200) and accept 4K signals except for the entry level L520W which is a WXGA (1280x800) projector. All eight models support a 16:10 aspect ratio.

The projectors light output ranges from 5,200 to 7,000 lumens—5,200 for the L500 series, 6,200 for the L630U, 6,000 for the L630SU and L635SU, and 7,000 for the L700 series. The L630SU and L635SU are short throw models with a 1.35x optical zoom and throw ratio range of 0.85 to 1.07 that can project images up to a 200 inch diagonal (see the Epson L630SU ProjectorCentral Projection Calculator for detailed short-throw distance measurements). The other six are long throw with a 1.6x optical zoom and 1.38 to 2.24 throw ratio. Their maximum image size is a 500 inch diagonal, except the L520W which is limited to 280 inches. The ProjectorCentral Projection Calculator for the L735U can help you determine if any of the long-throw projections can fit your space.

All but the L520W and L520U also include an HDMI out and built-in 5GHz wireless Ethernet (which is an optional accessory on the L520s).

Does this mean that we may see some home laser projectors from Epson soon ? I don't want to spend $3,000 plus for the LG HU810P or the JVC NZ3b when I sit 15 feet from a 96 inch screen and can get away with maybe something like the Epson Pro EX1000 .

We have no advance info from Epson on any upcoming models at this time, and nothing specific on a new generation laser HT projector.

No 7kLumens short throw models? Seems odd it's only an option for 6k.
