Expect more
Open up the possibilities to bigger and more exciting home entertainment while keeping your home stylish, without a black screen permanently on the wall. The EH-LS500B is distinctive in its discreet design, its visual performance and its ability to project from close to the display area. It’s easy to set up, delivers a great picture in bright rooms and offers great value with a long-life laser light source.


The big screen experience
Watch 4K content with this stylish and affordable 4K PRO-UHD1 projector. It can be placed very close to the projection area, while creating a 65″ to 130″ image. You can enjoy watching supersized content, without compromising on the look and feel of your home.


Stream content easily
Plug and play or stream 4K1 content via HDMI using your preferred streaming device. This projector has three HDMI inputs, two built-in 10w speakers and room to store a streaming device in a hidden bay at the front. Control the projector using either the included remote control or the iProjection app.


The complete picture
With a high brightness of 4,000 lumens and an incredible contrast ratio of 2,500,000:1, this projector delivers vivid, lifelike content and defined shadow detail with deeper blacks. Epson’s 3LCD technology means its projectors have up to three times brighter colours, than comparable 1-chip DLP projectors2. The Detail Enhancement technology delivers sharp and smooth images, ensuring you don’t miss a moment of the action.


See beyond resolution
With Epson’s 4K PRO-UHD1 projectors, you get a holistic approach to image performance over and above the ability to receive, process and project 4K1 content. Great images are the result of a combination of technologies coming together, including equal colour and white brightness, 3LCD technology, contrast control, HDR10 and colour processing.


Understanding ultra-short-throw
Epson’s ultra-short-throw (UST) projectors can be placed a few centimetres away from the display, which gives much more flexibility as to where the projector is placed. This is different to most standard or long-throw projectors, which generally need to be placed several metres away.


Enjoy up to ten years  of movies
Watch a movie every day on the big screen for the next ten years  thanks to its incredibly long-life laser light source that minimises replacements. Epson projectors are known for their reliability, so you don’t have to worry about missing a minute of your favourite film, game or programme.


Brighter, vivid projection
White brightness alone cannot bring the true colours you see everyday to life. The 3LCD technology found in Epson’s projectors delivers an equally high white and Colour Light Output (CLO), so that you can experience vivid and lifelike images.


Flicker-free images
1-chip and LED projectors can be subject to the ‘rainbow effect’, which describes how some people can see a disruptive flicker in fast-moving images. Ensuring smooth images, Epson’s projectors use 3LCD technology, which means that the ‘rainbow effect’ can never occur.

  • often receives training directly from manufacturer representatives and shares that expertise with you.
  • provides  support for all the products they sell.

  • buys directly from big brand manufacturers and guarantee you buy NZ new, (no grey imports or parallel imports).

The Internet is an incredibly convenient information source and a wonderful way to find savings on the products you want. Protect yourself online by buying from authorized dealers, with genuine feedback and reputations.


A price too good to be true, usually is.
If you’ve ever searched for a product on a shopping engine (such as Priceme/Pricespy) you may have asked yourself, “Why are some stores charging so much less than other stores?”

Our customers often share these stories with us, so we thought we would share a few with you, in hopes that you don’t fall prey to any of these unscrupulous sales tactics.

  • Goods may be grey market/parallel imported. They may state that the product includes the manufacturer warranty, but not tell you that the warranty is valid only in Europe, Japan, or South America, and NOT in NZ.
  • You may be asked to buy an expensive extended warranty. In many cases if you do not purchase the warranty, your purchase will be denied. (The product is now out of stock, your card does not go through, etc.)
  • Included parts may be sold to you separately. Some resellers will open boxes and charge extra for parts that are normally included by the manufacturer.
  • Hidden charges which don’t show up until your credit card statement arrives, these charges only show up when your credit card statement is sent to you.
  • When something goes wrong, faulty, late delivery, doesn’t matter how many times you try to email, they don’t get back.
  • There are so many scamming online sellers today, “buyer beware” protect yourself!


Think you have a better price from someone in NZ (authorised dealer)? Call us, we’ll see what we can do.


Concerned About Fraud?
The internet has become a more popular source for online shopping, regrettably we have seen more and more instances of fraud affecting online shoppers. Companies trading under many  different names, loading warranties and charging for them as extras when often they are included from the manufacturer. Parallel imports or personal imports where the NZ supplier refuses to repair when things go wrong is often alarming to the unsuspecting purchaser. Inflated freight charges, customs and GST at the border are often forgotten as a buyer is tempted by a lower price. Constantly we hear all these stories, once bitten it’s all to late looking for that refund or replacement. The stories are outrageous at times, customers from Trademe and ebay with no place to turn, time consuming and very frustrating…


So how do you protect yourself from online fraud?

  • Buy from an authorized reseller. If you are at all suspicious, contact the manufacturer directly and ask if a company is authorized to sell their products.
  • Make sure you get a company invoice with GST clearly marked.
  • Make sure you buy from someone who has a phone number and an address on their website, not a P.O.Box number
  • Read customer feedback, you can usually tell if it’s genuine or not.

We hope that you will become our next happy customer. And we promise to offer you superior service before, during and after your purchase.
