Reviews and Problems with Epson PowerLite Presenter
Showing 1-4 of 4
Not so great for business
7 December 2011
Summary: This projector works fine for playing dvd/movies, but not for powerpoint presentations from dvd or thumb-drive. It sounds good: "just put in your dvd or thumb-drive", but doens't work well with those items. It will only play a powerpoint from a laptop. I've had to break out my 10 yr old Toshiba several times just to play a powerpoint.
Summary: First of all, this machine does not play powerpoint without converting the powerpoint before you use it, either on a thumb drive or dvd. I bought this specifically for powerpoint and video presentations and now I have to convert everything before it can be used. I usually just get out my 10 yr old Toshiba to use because the "old technology" of that does not require conversion. I guess it would be fine for showing purchased dvd movies but not much else.
Summary: While I eventually got past the stumbling block of incorrect or insufficient instructions and the projector will now do what I needed, it took two days of playing with and experimentation by someone who is familiar with projectors and computers. Unsure I wish to repeat the process and would not recommend to someone with no technical background. Quick Setup instructions were vague in details.
Summary: The image had a halo around it and the keystone not only straightened the sides of the image, but shortened the vertical size considerably. We have an Optoma DV11 which seems to be highly superior except for lumen output.
