The new Epson EH-TW9200 LPE features a new and improved filter according to this review:
http://translate.google.se/translate?hl=sv&sl=de&tl=en&prev=_dd&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.cine4home.de%2Ftests%2Fprojektoren%2FEpson_TW9200%2FTW9200_Test_Preview.htm

The new LPE filter should also be backward compatible with older models. From what the review states the upgrade should be sold separately. In europe anyway...

The 9200 model is the equivalent to 5030 in the U.S.

Sought these filters myself and found a dealer in Germany that can ship these filters. Thought I should share this since it seems so hard to get them in the U.S. Send an enquiry by email to info at winnings.de for more info. The filters are not on the standard web pages, you need to contact winnings.de directly.

just saw the link that UdoG provided for the EH-TW9100 settings for the LPE filter and there are differences between this and the older version of the projector.

I'll be putting one of these up for sale in the next few days - I'm in Ireland, but will have family home for Christmas so could get it to the US that way, or can post it directly in any event.

I assume theres a For Sale forum on here.

So what does this filter exactly do? I've been reading the thread but probably don't understand it entirely.

Is it mainly made for the PJ to be used in Dynamic mode?
It enhances image contrast and black levels?
How does it affect image brightness/lumens? Does it decrease the amount of light hitting the screen?

Thanks!

The first post sort of details the use.

Basically, some owners need more lumens for their larger screens, projector to screen distance or just want an overall brighter image.
I believe the filter actually amplifies the light output while providing color accuracy/correction.

In Dynamic mode, the brightness is there but the color can not be tuned to accurate specifications.
This is were the filter comes in to play.

From the first post:
Quote:
You run the PJ in Dynamic with a few adjustments listed in the instructions. Supposedly, you get over 1200 color correct lumens--in ECO lamp mode. Over 1600 in Normal lamp.

The filter doesn't actually amplify the light output, it just allows you to correct Dynamic mode to a more accurate color. THX or Natural mode without the filter is still more color accurate, but significantly less bright. Dynamic mode with the filter does give you 1100-1200 lumens in ECO lamp mode. It also has a higher native contrast than THX/Natural mode. So, THX mode: Outstanding color and excellent color. Dynamic with the LPE filter: Very good color, outstanding native contrast and brightness.

Based on that review, i'm confused why shouldn't i try and get the 5030 filter and install it on my 5010 since it's backwards compatible? Seems like the newer filter is better or was it designed with the contrast ratio of the 5030 in mind? I'm a bit confused.

Thanks

paolo,
I think that the case of the new TW9200W is absolutely the same as the original TW9000 and the only difference is in the default settings for the CMS ... and probably the colors of the internal filters but since they offer a dedicated LPE filter for the TW9200 for the same price as the one for TW9000 you can get that.

Have you tried to paint the screen with the same color? I did with white paint mixed with acrylic pure magenta tint.

It corrects the color in the same way and with the advantages with reflected light of an not white (gray) screen.

In darkness the screen is not seen as pink/ magenta. So does work

I have a question regarding the TW9200 filter. I bought one off eBay. Is there any way I can tell if the filter I received is actually the one for TW9200? There is nothing on the filter itself that specifies which version it is. Thanks.

5010 owners, How are your units holding up after 200 hours? Plan to upgrade soon? I'm going to purchase a used 5010. What price should I expect to pay with couple hundred hours on the lamp?

I have one of these filters that I no longer need. It seems like these things are almost impossible to find in the US, so feel free to shoot me a PM if you're interested.
