Summary: Back in the dark ages televisions were 4:3 ratios of horizontal pixels to vertical pixels. In those days televisions were also made of vaccuum tubes, weight hundreds of pounds, and you rented movies on VHS (or Betamax). After everything started to get digitized screen resolutions changed to a more movie friendly 16:9 "widescreen".
Excerpt: One of the best on the market for presentations because of features XGA, brightness in lumens for color, size, and price range. You can make presentations using a USB memory card ( without a computer) for PowerPoint as long as it's save as an image file and of course other picture image files. It will work for video but if you need high quality you would want to consider a higher end Epson with better than XGA quality. Sound quality adequate but not high end.
Pros: value, Features, Quiet, Easy to Use, Design, Performance
Ok for slideshows, but better available at price point

Summary: Epson's VS330 isn't a bad projector for business use and is really aimed at slideshow presentations. It's lacking a couple of things that imply some cheapness in the manufacturing process, though, and there are both better resolution models that don't omit those features and ultraportable models from other manufacturers available at its price point. 3 stars. The "VS" denotes Epson's "Value Series", and there are definite design decisions here that reflect that.
For General Purpose, This is an Excellent LCD Projector!

Summary: If your home, church, or business needs a great quality LCD Projector yet that will not break your bank, this Epson VS330 is it. Since there are some excellent technical reviews on Amazon, I will just dwell on actual use of it at home. 1. BUILD. The plastic casing while light, is not weak. It is sturdy. It will withstand normal bumps on the tables and things. Casing is tight. That is, you will not see loose parts or areas. Nicely put together. 2. EASY TO USE.
Summary: Straight to the point. This projector is great because it is Compact Versatile connectivity - USB type B and A, HDMI, VGA-in, three RCAs Light-weight Great brightness Clear picture Easy horizontal and vertical correction The major con I find is - Speakers - if you want to turn up the volume over half of what is available on the machine, then you will get to hear some buzzing along with it.
Summary: All their useless marketing aside ("colors 3x brighter with Epson!"), you just want to know one thing: is this the best projector for my money? Having tried a number of projectors in this price range, here's a rundown of your best options: (all prices at time of writing) $330: This, the Epson VS230. Amazing for the price. Bright enough for lit rooms.
