Summary: Excellent brightness & color. My intent was to show videos & art photography, so I need high dynamic range to preserve detail in shadows and highlights. The projector provides it, in both normal and ECO modes, during the day in rooms with big windows. I do find it helpful to dim flourescent task lighting. Howver, the darks in photo are not really dark, as you expect them to be on a high-quality monitor.
Excerpt: Bottom Line: 1. Buy yourself a high speed HDMI cable. 2. Convert your presentations using the Epson software & carry on a USB drive in case of emergency (assumes you run Windows). And a printed copy of the presentation for you to follow along. 3. If you plan to network the projector, save yourself a lot of setup by buying the Epson USB networking drive. 4. Do this and you have a winning combination for an outstanding portable projector.Pros: 1. Small.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy to use, Great picture quality, See Comments Above, See My Comments Below, Small Footprint
Summary: I did a lot of research before making a final selection for purchase. This projector, as well as others in its family line, were highly rated for lots of reasons. And I concur with all of them. Great resolution, bright display, easy to use, compact, etc. The common negative feedback I saw was that the fan was loud. Someone equated it to a hair dryer when in "normal" mode. I find the fan to be completely acceptable, not loud at all in the "normal" mode.
Summary: This is a great projector. Items of note: For single use, many will probably be fine putting projector in eco mode to hush the fan. The fan noise likely will not be a factor for larger presentations. Also the display is much brighter when out of eco mode. The slide on the lens effectively mutes the display in eco mode and normal mode. The slide in eco mode almost sounds as if the projector has been turned off, not so in normal mode.
