Very Good Projector

R. Toro "Tech Junkie", Amazon
19 July 2013
  • Summary: This is a very good projector, considering its age (it is an old model at this point, according to Amazon it came out in 2005). I used it primarily for business presentations, for which it works great. More recently, I have been using it to stream Netflix and DVD movies on our wall at home.

Great Item

  • Summary: I love this device! My wife and I decided to forgo other presents and buy ourselves this and a screen for Christmas this year, and it has been wonderful. Easy setup and use, beautiful picture, and multiple connections make for a versatile product.
  • Pros: Good picture, ease of setup/use, connections, and especially, price.
  • Cons: sound, remote, not much else.

I am happy

  • Summary: I have no regrets for making this purchase. Plus everyone that walks in to my living room thinks it's awesome too.
  • Pros: I have this hooked up with a 15pin d-sub connector with component video to my directTV HD satelitte receiver. I have it mounted upside down on the celing far back enough to have a 96" screen. For this purpose it is AWESOME. The picture is beautiful. It supports 480i 480p 720p and 1080i At the 480...
  • Cons: The only thing I don't like about this projector is the fact that it only has a digital zoom. If you can't live with that don't buy this projector.

Great Projector

Edward F., Newegg
8 March 2006
  • Summary: I initially used a composite cable and was not all that impressed by the image quality. Tried with the VGA cable and was AMAZED! Beautiful image even in a lit room.
  • Pros: Bright image (even looks good on plain white wall), great color, multiple connection choices.
  • Cons: Built-in sound (video games) is a bit on the weak side, but I didn't buy it for the sound.

Great projector

Anonymous, Newegg
8 March 2006
  • Summary: For the money, this beats going out and buying a big screen TV.
  • Pros: I just got this and WOW. Price is a big plus on this but I could not believe the great performance of this projector. It's not really for home theater use but that's what I use it for and the quality of the picture is great. The remote included has so many features just like a TV and more. You ca...
  • Cons: You can hear the cooling fan but hey, I have a 300watt surround sound with dolby running so who cares about the fan. There is the screen door effect but you have to be close to really notice it.

An excellent projector

  • Pros: This projector is bright even set at low brightness. Don't let the cheap price fool you the picture quality exceeds more expensive brands. Combine this with surround sound and you have an excellent home theater system. At the time I purchased this epson was giving a projector screen free as a reb...
  • Cons: Hate watching a regular size tv now.

  • Pros: Great picture...Bright colors even when room is not dark. I project a 10' diag. picture and it is GREAT!!! An exelent choice for the price.I use the low wattage setting to save the lamp and it is plenty bright. Good job Epson and NEW EGG for a super fast delivery!! I chose Fed-Ex.
  • Cons: White scenes seem a bit washed out. Over-all it is hard to report any con's.

A little limited

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: I think it will probably get mounted in a room at the church. If it’s mounted the correct distance you don’t have to worry about zooming at all. And we’ll get another LCD Projector has a few more features. :)
  • Pros: It has a nice heavy duty (as LCD Projectors go) case. Nice brightness for smaller presentations.
  • Cons: NO Optical Zoom :( I was very disappointed with this and had never seen it before, but it uses a digital zoom it actually resizes the images on the LCD itself reducing the total resolution. Not a very good portable projector unless you have a cart and a lot of room to zoom by moving the projector...

  • Pros: This is a good starter projector for the novice. It is very easy to use and has a good picture that works just about anywhere its dark. I have enjoyed having a 300 inch LCD display without having to pay thousands for a TV.
  • Cons: THe pixel is a little low, but the picture wtill is good enough.

Much better than you would expect

Amazon
19 January 2006
  • Summary: I put off purchasing this projector for about six months, as I was not convinced that I would be happy with the picture quality of a $700 projector. I finally decided to take a chance and ordered it a couple of weeks ago. I am extremely happy I did.
