currently very little information on the unit as Epson is still changing the specifications and naming schemes

First spotted in early September 2008 at CEDIA, the PowerLite Home Cinema 6500 UB is a high end high definition projector by Epson designed for home theaters. Featuring 3LCD display technology, a 200W E-TORL lamp, a Silicon Optix Reon-X video processor and a brightness rating of 1600 ANSI lumens, the 6500 UB can display a full 1080p resolution (1920 x 1280) at a quiet 22dB. While its performance has been said to be very similar to the more expensive 7500 UB, the 6500 UB does not come with a second bulb or stand. Available in time for the holidays, the price of the Home Cinema 6500 UB slipped to $3000 in early January 2009.
