Summary: This good value LCD beamer's versatility is stunted only by its 4:3 images
Pros: Brightness, Portability, Usability, Image alignment options, We like its small, portable size and its punchy, bright and accurate images, too. The icing is the noise, or lack of; the EB-X11 produces an average of just 65 decibels in operation on full brightness, but it reduces to 57 decibels in Eco mode. Talking of noise, the built-in speaker is absolutely great - it goes to a high volume without distorting, and has a lot more range than we had expected.
Cons: 4:3 shape, USB slot only reads photos, Low resolution, Poor built-in speakers, No Wi-Fi or networking options, The lack of HDMI is understandable on a data-centric projector, but it is a shame the EB-X11 can't play video files stored on a USB thumb-drive. We're also missing the lens shift levers that Epson often fits its projectors with, and which make off-centre placement much easier. Video isn't what this projector excels at, though it doesn't claim to.
Excerpt: The Epson EB-X11 is designed for the education sector, and it's pretty specialised. It's amazingly bright, with a 2,600 lumens lamp, and has a 1,024x768 resolution, so it's more suited to presentations than HD films. It has some advanced features too, such as a USB connection that can send both video and audio to the projector and let you use the projector's remote control to control your PC's cursor.
