Episode 1400

David from Pasadena, CA
Brother Laser Printer

David wants a good Wi-Fi home printer. Leo says that Epson makes a great color printer. Brother makes a good laser printer that's very inexpensive. Those are the two top choices for Leo.

He also has an Apple TV and wants to know if he'll have to upgrade his Apple TV to get Amazon Prime. Leo says no, it's just an app and it will appear in a firmware update or he can download it.

What All-in-One Printer should I buy?

Episode 1387

Benny from Pasadena, CA
Epson WorkForce 3620

Benny is looking for a wireless all-in-one printer with fax. Leo says that the fax wouldn't be wireless, obviously. Leo recommends the Epson Workforce Pro. Canon also makes good All-in-One. He can actually get an all-in-one for under $100, the Epson Workforce 3620 is around $120 quite often. But he should remember that the ink is going to cost him.

What printer should I buy?

Episode 1363

Taj from Oregon
Epson EcoTank

Taj likes the idea of the new Epson EcoTank Printer. Is it worth the money, though? Leo says it absolutely is. It costs more up front, but he'll get 2 years of ink with it.

Do all Epson printers have that feature? Leo says no. Taj will have to look at what features each printer has. Not all are wireless or come with 2 years of ink. The wireless feature is great because he could scan to the cloud. The Epson EcoTank printer, while admittedly an advertiser, has some really great features.

What large format printer do I need for large prints?

Episode 1339

Billy from Marina del Rey, CA
Epson SureColor F6200 Printer

Billy wants a really huge printer to make a 50" print. Would a plotter do? Leo says no. Those are for architectural drawings. Billy will want a large format printer and those are very expensive. It would be better to go to a service to have this done. If he wants to buy one, Epson is the place to go. Leo suggests the Epson Sure Color F6200, and it costs $6500.

What projector should I get for my attic?

Episode 1327

JC from Mississippi
Epson Home Cinema 3100 Full HD 1080p 3LCD Projector

JC wants to know if there are HDR projectors available. Scott says there are, but they're lagging behind TVs. That'll change over time.

JC wants to put a projector and screen in his attic. Scott says he doesn't need anything really fancy, and Epson has a great home cinema projector. The Epson Home Cinema 3100 is $1300 and projects in 1080p really nicely. There's also the 3700 and 3900 for a few hundred more. Other brands include BenQ and Optima.

What do I need to create a cool media room?

Diego from Fullerton, CA

Episode 1301

Leo says it depends on his budget, but he'll need a big screen TV, and it's always a larger screen than you would think. If it's a media room, then a projector will likely be a better choice and he can go with as large of a screen as he wants. Projectors can range from $2,000 to $4,000 from Epson, to hundreds of thousands from Ronco. Then there's the screen itself.

He'll also want a Dolby Atmos compatible home theater system. Diego should check out AVSForum for more.
