Summary: The Epson VS Series VS315W 3LCD Projector 2800 Lumens is a nice little projector. It is very handy and easy to carry, move, and use. There is an easy to use remote that allows you to operate the projector from wherever you need to be in the room. I think the best thing about this projector is that it is small and easy to set up and use. However, I wish it had a carrying case to protect it.
Summary: I use a projector for small group instruction in a small room. I tested the with an older IBM laptop. I hooked up the cable and it was good to go. Then I tried out a iPad 2 using the appropriate dongle and again it worked perfectly. The image was bright and clear in the small room that I would typically be using. It couldn't have been easier to use.
Excerpt: Staples website said USB cable was included, but it was not. Spoke to Epson and they said it does NOT come with it. Brought my own USB cable, but it was far too slow for video. I had to use the other cables, which means I now have to buy speakers as well.USB cable also requires a download onto the computer.Also took a long time to get the software to work. I had to call customer service, who were very helpful, and then download it from the website.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good definition, Light weight, No cool down necessary, Wide screen
Lower end projector but be sure you read the specs

Summary: I actually have worked with EPSON units with similar specifications to the VS315W with regards to inputs and outputs, and find this a very comfortable personal fit. If I were to gauge the market for this I would push it toward people who are not early adopters and probably are using 3 or 4 year old computers, DVD players (heck, even VHS players), and don't depend upon high quality sound. People with older equipment (me) will like this projector most.
Summary: The Epson VS Series VS315W 3LCD Projector 2800 Lumens is a nice projector to use for school projects or work presentations. I used my projector for a PowerPoint Presentation and it was amazing no hassle or fuss. I used the adapter cord to plug it into my laptop and it allowed me to watch videos, Youtube, and any other websites you want to put on your projector.
Pick another Epson model, EX7210 if you want to watch movies or EX3210 if you just need a projector.

Summary: First of all, this line of Epson projectors are great, but this particular one has some issues that make me suggest you buy one of the other Epsons, depending upon your needs. I am not sure what niche this Epson was meant to fit. I have been using it along with the EX7210 and the EX3210 (see these for specific reviews) in my classrooms.

Summary: Epson has a long history making quality projectors and this one is no exception. It is very bright, lightweight, and is probably one of the easier units on the market to actually set up and use. But that ease comes with a few trade-offs. The most notable feature is the auto-keystone adjustment that keeps the output square and flat to the projection surface with minimal effort.
Summary: Does it ever bother you when an otherwise terrific product lacks the one feature that would make it an amazingly terrific product? Andy Rooney probably asked that very question, but if he did he didn't have this projector in mind. This 2600 lumen projector with a 16:9 screen aspect ratio would seem perfect for most business and personal presentations.
