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.

At this price, I feel the product falls short in three areas:
1. No carrying case? Sheesh ... even a cheap one would be better than nothing. Safely lugging it around with a power cable and remote clearly needs a bag, why make me find one that doesn't fit just right? If you are going to use a "handle" instead of a bag, then it needs internal compartments to hold the power cord and remote so they don't get separated. It is inexcusable at any price to not to include a carrying case for a product that is clearly designed to be portable.
2. The product is not HD (not even 720i) ... at 480 pixels of resolution, it is standard DVD quality, and in today's market; at this price tag, it should be HD.
3. The speakers could/should be higher quality. Bose has proven (many years ago) that big sound can come in small packages. 10 watts of sound just isn't loud enough for an audience of more than 5 - again this greatly detracts for its overall ability to serve as as a one solution portable device.
So far, I have used it with my iPad, iPhone and my daughter's iPod Touch. I have used Netflix and streamed video from Amazon. Later today, I'll connect the Wii, and I am confident that I'll be just as thrilled.
Things I love and/or are better than the barebones projectors that I use at work:
- charging my iPad/iPhone while using is a huge convenience. I wish I had one of these at school, so I wouldn't have to bother with extra cords/adapters.
- built in speaker is, as another described, good quality & great volume. I have a set of Altec Lansings with a woofer that I like better, so I have them hooked up for TV/movie-watching. The built-ins would be fine for anything else that I want to do, and are better than what I have at work.
- Being able to have so much flexibility with image adjustment is FABULOUS. I don't know what the correct term for this is, but you can project on an angle (like NOT from the center of the room, like from the side) and simply slide a lever to adjust the image into a perfect rectangle. That is really great in a home, or a crowded classroom, when one simply can't setup dead center.
- it is a little heavy for carrying, but what projector of this size/features isn't? The handle is nice and I don't mind that there isn't a carrying case. Personally, I don't like the carrying cases that I have seen in other projectors. They don't provide much protection, and I'd rather just be very careful with the projector, while using its handle.Read more ›
I then got on the internet, went to YouTube and opened a video there and projected it from my iPad through the Epson MegaPlex. It was fun.
The picture quality is excellent, and at 2200 lumens the brightness works well. I had it in my office with the light on and there wasn't any distortion from the overhead light with the projection. The clarity was great. So, then I went to a classroom and tried it in there. It gave me good size from the front desk to the wall behind that. If I turned off half of the lights it was even better, if I turned off all the lights it was amazing.
I also found that the quick set up guide was well written, it walked me through the steps of setting the product up, installing the iPad holder onto the projector and getting everything fired up and started.
I then moved on to looking at the user manual. It was well laid out, the table of contents was easy to read and got me to where I needed to go quickly and easily so that I could find the answers to the questions I had. The Problem Solving section is well done and will answer most questions. If you can't find your answer in the manual it then on Page 72 gives you further directions on where to go to solve your issue.Read more ›
