Summary: I bought this projector to do Power Point presentations. It is really excellent. As others have noted, this projector has many of the features that are found on more expensive models. It can be connected to a variety of computer, video, and audio sources to display presentations, movies, or other images, with our without sound. It is small and light weight. I really appreciate that it does not need a warm up time.
Terrible Resolution -not sure why this gets such good ratings

Summary: I bought this in part due to good ratings and name brand. I use it for business meetings to put financials up from a dell laptop and the resolution is so poor we can not read the numbers. Called Epson and they said it is a lower end model with low screen resolution. So why does it cost $400 then? Too late to return to Amazon so will have to sell on E bay. Might be fine for putting up photos but not good for text.
Summary: there's no way to route the audio to external speakers (at least not that I could find from the manual and a few hours of searching online). This, for me, was a deal breaker since I usually use this outside in the back yard for movie nights and have a pair of computer speakers with sub that I hook up. I had to order the ViewSonic PJD5134, which has been awesome and is right around the same price.
Summary: I really like the look and feel; the weight of the product. We mounted it on the ceiling and it's been a breeze to use. We use it for projecting power points; demos and videos for Brain-O-Magic.
