Summary: I bought this as my living room TV in a small apartment. It's freakin AWESOME. You do have to pull the curtains if you want to watch in the middle of the day, but that's to be expected with a projector.
Pros: Great projector for the price 720p resolution Bright enough (for a projector) Decent bulb life -- I got 4300 hours over 3 years. New bulbs are cheap. Throw ratio was perfect for my needs -- I had some trouble finding one with this ratio. GIves a screen slightly over 100" at 12'
Cons: Not 1080p Can't watch in full sunlight Bulb life a bit below expectation
Summary: Bought this unit after months of planning and reading hoping all would work out...and it has not let me down! 1080p costs were out of my range so wanted 720p HD and the picture quality is very good. Not 55" LED good but very good non the less.
Summary: Bought this to replace a 5 year old Panasonic that was failing. Not only is it brighter, but it cost half as much. The bulb has a longer projected life and costs less as well. Although I was leaning towards a 1080 HD this time around, the picture quality is fine.
Summary: I bought through amazon, works perfect right out of the box. Brightness is amazing, picture quality is great, can't distinguish the difference with 1080p. Only one drawback I noticed when you do internet video streaming (you tube etc) once in a while picture disappears and comes back in 5-10...
Summary: After a huge amount of research, I bought this projector with high hopes that I had finally found my first satisfactory entry into the world of projection home theater "on the cheap" -- while prices continue to settle in this technology.
Summary: At first I had projector on my coffee table and the image was terrible but I found this was due to it automatically keystoning to make image appear "straight". After mounting on my ceiling the Image was great, I had made a custom screen myself from Carl's place.
Summary: I did get an extra discount on this by purchasing during Newegg's 'Black November' sale; the price I paid was around $550. But if you're in the market for a low cost HD projector and this model has the right throw ratio, buy it.
Pros: Excellent little projector. Great price; great picture. I've had it just over a week now and am using it in my apartment. Projecting onto a plain white wall, with the projector sitting on a table right beside my couch. Distance from projector to the wall is around nine feet; the image projected i...
Cons: As mentioned, I have the projector sitting right beside me; on Eco mode the fan noise is audible but not at all problematic. With Eco mode off though the fan gets pretty loud; but being in an apartment I can't put the audio too loud so there's not much to drown it out. Image is slightly dimmer on...
Summary: First of all, I don't know what the negative reviews on this projector are talking about. They said the picture wasn't clear. That's what the focus ring is for. They said the sound was poor. Projectors aren't supposed to have good sound; get an external set of speakers. On to my review.
Summary: As a happy owner of the 705 going on four years, I can say with full confidence that the 710 is a great upgrade. Epson makes quality products and backs them up with fantastic, speedy, and courteous customer service. I will continue buying and recommending Epson for years to come.
