PROS

  • The LS1000's laser light engine has a significantly longer life span than regular UHP lamps, which are usually rated for only 3,000 hours.
  • Epson's laser-driven projector delivers deep black levels and excellent contrast.
  • The LS1000's ability to accept 4K input signals and display Digital Cinema P3 color space lends it a measure of future-readiness.

CONS

  • Epson's faux-4K feature doesn't provide any improvement in picture detail over standard 1080p HD.
  • At $8,000, the LS1000 is pricey compared with its competition.
  • The LS1000's Dynamic Contrast feature can reduce shadow detail in images.
The Epson PowerLite Pro Cinema LS1000's laser light engine gives it one serious advantage over regular lamp-driven projectors in that you don't have to worry about replacing a bulb after every 3,000 hours of use. Beyond that, it delivers powerful contrast, satisfying brightness and accurate color. While the LS1000 is capable of accepting and displaying 4K video input signals, the psuedo-4K images it displays can’t compete with the real thing. Pricey, but--depending on your preferences--worth it.
