Excerpt: Price : 1299,99$ I like: Screen Fit technology, the small size, the installation in a few seconds, the wireless connectivity. I don’t like: Noisy, less powerful loud-speaker. The Epson PowerLite 1775 is a projector with impressive features, an installation in a few seconds and a convenient size to carry (the case is …
Summary: This product works perfectly with the usb cable, I could not use it wirelessly (which was the advantage of this model) because the wireless LAN module and the USB connection key did not arrive.
Summary: I purchased an Epson refurbished 1775w projector for the Fit to Screen function. It didn't work. I spent a couple hours on the phone with the technician. He sent me another one and I returned the first one. The second one didn't even turn on - the overheat light came on immediately and no light came out of it. I had a camera repair technician there that day so he tried it on his computer. I spent an hour with Epson tech support and they sent me another one.
Summary: I used this projector for the first time in a workshop this last week-end. Although it did what it needed to do, I couldn't get the remote to work even though I reset it several times. I had to keep going back and manually advance the slides which disrupted the flow of the presentation.
Summary: Used to give safety training across the US at sites as varied as hotel rooms to equipment control rooms. Great bright view without turning off lights and able to set up close to screen/wall. Very quiet, too.
Summary: The 1775W is an excellent projector overall, but it has a disappointingly poor audio speaker that is weak and has poor frequency response outside the mid (vocal) range. Except for this, it is an exceptional piece of gear. Just route your audio to some external speakers. It is small, light, has all the basic hookups, two wifi modes, Multiple USB modes (computer, flash drive, device, camera, etc.), VGA, HDMI, RCA Video/Audio.
Summary: This is one awesome projector. Works well in dimly lighted rooms (no need to turn off the lights). If I could fix one thing on it that would be the noise level. But, the fan's gotta run and this is an issue with every other projector I've used. If you can get over the sound of the fan, you'll love this projector. The size and half the weight of a big-city telephone book (remember those?).
Summary: I provide IT support for a large organization (over 20K total staff) and I directly support a division of approx 1,000 staff. We purchased one of these after I researched projectors. I personally LOVED this projector and would have rated it 5 stars but for two small things that were deal-breakers for our organization but may not be for yours. Deal breaker 1) Wireless only worked if we turned off our firewall - a no no as far as our Security group is concerned.
Summary: The Epson 1775W is a wireless high-resolution projector (also works with HDMI, USB, or VGA) that fits comfortably in a computer bag along with a MacBook. On a Mac you don't even need the USB key plugged in to the Mac. It just works across the wireless network and downloaded connection software. They are working on an update for Lion but it works great on Snow Leopard and HDMI and VGA will work fine on a Lion Mac in the interim.
