Amazing color brightness for brilliant image quality
With today’s high-definition content, you want your movies to appear with show-stopping quality in both darkened home theaters and brighter environments. One brightness measurement (lumens) is not enough. Look for both high color brightness and high white brightness to have a truly impressive image.
High color brightness also enables an even better image for larger screen sizes and for a larger variety of screen materials. Without sufficient color brightness, images may be muddy, soft and lose detail, even in a dark room. If not provided, be sure to ask for a projector’s color brightness specification. Get consistent, true-to-life color with Epson projectors, whether you’re watching movies, playing video games, or watching a family slideshow.

There are a couple bonuses that come with the projector. One is built in speakers that are actually loud enough to be heard in a meeting room. The amplifier in the unit will over-drive the speakers so you'll need to balance volume and clarity, but within a reasonable range it does pretty well, for meeting use. I'd say it's the equivalent of a $40-50 set of external computer audio monitors. For home theater use, you will probably want to connect it to a higher quality system.
Connectivity is the other special feature. I plugged in my iPod Touch and ran a photo slideshow with music. It just worked. There's a slide-out tray that has an iPod/iPad/iPhone jack. The tray easily holds my wife's iPad with no strain.
Next, I connected my laptop with a USB cable. Again, it just worked. I then tried it from a HDMI cable, then a RGB cable. All worked off my MacBook. No problem with Apple products that I can see. It also supports composite cables, which I used from our DVD player. There are the expected audio out ports too. It will also show photos or video off a USB thumb drive.Read more ›
The MegaPlex is very easy to set up. I didn't have to refer to the documentation. I just plugged it into my Asus Transformer (tablet) and it immediately worked. The first thing I did was view some of my favorite Youtube videos to get a feel for the basics of this machine. The videos looked nice projected onto my white wall despite the poor picture quality of most Youtube videos.
Next, I ran a slide show of my pictures. I had to adjust the brightness a little since some of my pictures were dark. Adjusting the brightness fixed the issue and my pictures looked great. Again, it was fun to see my pictures up on such a huge screen. I can't wait to show off my next vacation pictures this way.
The MegaPlex seems to work with a variety of electronics that have HDMI outputs. I don't have an iThing of any sort, so I wasn't able to test that function. However, my Asus Transformer was able to output 720p with the MegaPlex and the picture looked nice. When I plugged my Asus into the MegaPlex, the MegaPlex took over the sound. The MegaPlex has decent speakers for a projector. The speaker is on the back of the MegaPlex, so you probably won't want to use it as your main speaker if you connect this to a TV and watch movies, but it works well for Youtube videos and such.
The controls on the unit make it easy to size the image to your liking. You can make the image large or small depending on the amount of viewing space you have available. For now, I have been using my wall and making the image as large as possible.Read more ›
The Box and Build quality:
The projector came packed well in styrofoam and a neat cardboard liftout handle. Extras came in a sealed cardboard box. The projector itself is all plastic with a side carrying handle that snaps shut when not needed. The sliding lens cap is built into the projector. The unit is "portable" and light with a convenient carry handle but you would need a pretty large and padded backpack to carry this thing around in a bag. My only complaint with the build quality is that they use a pliable plastic mesh over the speakers. It would have been better to use a metal grill for durability and true protection of the speakers, but it's a minor point. The remote is slim and has nice illuminated buttons.
Well, first off, if you have Apple products, you're going to love this projector with it's easy to use rear pop out port. Apple stuff fits easily, and the projector comes with a tape on stand to help stabilize iPads. Obviously, if you're going to use Apple products, this thing cannot be mounted upside down like home theater projectors are mounted or else your Apple device might enjoy a nice trip from the ceiling to the floor. From the specs, you can read what connections are available. Standing out is the option to use a USB port (type A and B are both accepted).Read more ›

This thing is amazing. Yeah, it's 720p, but that's still HD, and when you have a projector that can get as big as 300 inches around $500, I wouldn't complain. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Brett H. Pokorny
