170" = more than 9x the size of a 50" HDTV

igen "igen", Amazon
27 November 2013
  • Summary: Mine is bigger than yours. Yeah, you read that right. How big is your TV? 50"? 60"? Maybe 75" if you really splurged? Well, just for comparison, my 170" screen gives me a larger picture than a 3x3 grid of 50" TVs. That's more than 9x the screen size of the most common "big screen" TVs. When I was going to replace my old 24" tube TV, I had a few options and didn't like any of them.

A great projector for outdoor movies!

  • Summary: Great product. We borrowed an Epson 5200 over the summer for outdoor movies, and this is a great step up. More screen size settings, much brighter, and easily projects HUGE.

Great product, great value. I highly recommend it.

  • Summary: This projector rules. The ceiling mounting process (and the tweaking of the yaw/pitch of the actual mount) was a project, but totally worth it. This met my technical requirements and for $500 it was a GREAT deal compared to many 2500+ lumen HD projectors. I highly recommend it.

Excellent Projector

Ted St. George, Amazon

  • Summary: Although it is more than two years old now, my lamp is still exceptionally bright, and the colors are vivid. This is an excellent projector, especially for those looking to have a "budget" home theatre.

How long will it last?

warren lee wainwright, Amazon
27 December 2010
  • Summary: I was lucky enough to purchase this unit some 6 years ago. It is paired with a Onkyo 605 B. I couldn't be happier with this product. It does alot of stuff. My main focus is How long will it produce a picture. The replacement bulbs are expensive. I bought a service agreement to cover 5 years of service from GE. To be honest this unit is so reliable. I didn't even need the service contract. I never used it.

Great Projector for the Money!

bortomatic, Ebay
7 December 2010
  • Summary: What a great projector for the money. Not sure how a 1080P projector could be that much better. Watched Avatar last night on bluray and was blown away. Had an old projector previously that doesn't come close. I plan to use this projector for both work and play. It is bright enough that I know powerpoint presentations will be visible even in a lighted room. Picture is awesome with bluray connected using hdmi.

Great for the money

RLJ, J&R
22 January 2010
  • Summary: Great projector for the price. I took advantage of the free bulb rebate from Epson available up through 1/31/10. Picture does require some tweaking out of the box, but plenty of options to make adjustments. As stated in a previous review, the on-board de-interlacer is not very powerful as a good amount of artifacts can be seen. This, however, goes away if you let the source do the up/down scaling instead of the projector.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Set Up, Lightweight
  • Cons: De-interlacer

  • Summary: Personal Experience [Had the projector for 8 months] Picture is very bright in 'dynamic' mode, very usable for a 10ft wide image on a flat painted wall in a well lit room, but colors are unnaturally saturated--perfectly acceptable for daytime viewing, though. In a darkened room, the other modes like 'natural', or 'theatre' trade away that brightness for greatly improved color. Black levels and (ANSI-type) contrast are good, but not quite DLP good.

Great Sub-[$]projector

Legaltenor, J&R
16 December 2009
  • Summary: Great projector. Excellent picture, plenty bright --- even on the subdued Theater 1 setting which is best for viewing movies in a dark/semi-dark room. Did lots of research in deciding between the Panasonic AX-200 and this Epson, but in the end the better Epson warranty and some reported problems with the Panny at the AV Forums site convinced us to go with the Epson.
  • Pros: Durable, Good Focus, Powerful, Sharp Picture
  • Cons: On-Screen Menu Navigation
