LAS VEGAS -- Epson has announced one of its most affordable projectors yet in the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 600, which features a high 3,000-lumen brightness and a sub-$400 price tag.

The Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 600 is a 3LCD projector that the company says is suitable for backyard movies and even gaming with a dedicated "Game" mode -- hopefully with correspondingly low lag times.

The projector features built-in sound and will permit some flexibility in placement with auto vertical correction and a horizontal image correction slider.

As a modern projector the PowerLite includes two HDMI ports but it tips the hat to the legacy crowd with component, composite and RGB.

The Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 600 projector will be available in the US from mid-January 2015 for $379. Look for more information on CNET.com soon, and click here to see all CNET's CES coverage.
