Great home theater projector for under $400

Summary: I have only had it for a few days, but it is awesome. The picture is very crisp. And I am just projecting it onto my wall right now, while I'm waiting for my screen to arrive. I have it in my media room, which has no windows, so i don't really know what it would look like in lighted conditions. I will expand on my review once i get the receiver and screen set up.
Summary: Good quality picture in dark to low light. If using outside will definitely need shade. Love the item. The only complaint is with the sound quality. If you want good sound you need speakers to connect to your source.
Summary: This Epson V11H475220 PowerLite Home Cinema 707 Gold Edition projector will work well as a portable entertainment hub, but the name is a little misleading as I would not consider this unit optimal as a "gold edition home cinema" anything. The build quality of this device is solid. The outer shell is durable enough and I didn't think the buttons were excessively loose.
High quality lower tier projector, excellent travel companion.

Summary: If you're looking for a lower tier projector (which means 720p / compact, but not mini-size) then this Epson is worth looking at for a buy. Yes, 720p is considered quite old and archaic in this current world of standard 1080p and upcoming 4k resolutions that will be all the rage in 2014/2015, but it's decent enough when considering it's still better than DVD quality, and many of us still use that format.
Summary: It's been some time since I've tried out a video projector and all I can say is wow things have improved massively. With epson's power lite 707 you get movie quality visuals at 720p at an amazing price. The unit itself is smaller than I was expecting, but as is common with projectors at this price point, the projecting lens is offset to the right (to the left when mounted) and so I placed it slightly on the right so my screen could be smack in the center of the room...
Summary: Projectors have made tremendous leaps the past few years. Gone are the days when they are small suitcase sized boxes you have to mount on the ceiling only to get a low resolution, washed out picture. For the price of this, this is an excellent projector for the price that is a capable sports day big screen, movie night home theater. It isn't really meant to be the center of a media entertainment system, it's meant to project.
Summary: Works great at the office. The best thing about this projector is the wide screen aspect ration. With out old project people thought they needed glasses. The resolution for this one is much better that our previous projector. On the top of the unit, there is a wheel that you can spin that changes the angle of viewing, so if you cannot place the project such that it faces the wall directly, you can move the lens so that it looks flat on the wall.
Summary: I own quite a bit of high end audio and video but this is my first projector. It is a very compact unit and is light in weight. I found it very easy to setup and use right out of the box. The brightness of the bulb, color and resolution are outstanding. The reality 720p is real HD even though most think they must have 1080p. 720p gives one a beautiful picture. I found it very easy to adjust the picture in terms of vertical and horizontal angles.
Summary: The Epson product line consists of 118 projectors (seriously!) - ranging from from home cinema to business and educational applications. Its home cinema line begins with the budget PowerLite Home Cinema series, and extends up to the pro-grade PowerLite Pro Cinema family. This particular unit falls towards the lower end of the budget offerings. As a result, my expectations were not particularly high. Unfortunately, the 707 met my expectations.
