And, remember that old carousel slide projector for family viewing of vacation slides?

Project videos and play songs from your favorite playlists on your Apple iPod. You may also view images from an HD cable or satellite TV receiver, HD DVR or HD camcorder using the HDMI video connection. The Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 705HD also doubles as a business projector for presentations — just connect through the VGA port to your computer.

I've never written an Amazon review before, but I've learned a lot about projectors over the past couple weeks, and thought I should share.

As prices have been coming down, I finally decide to get a projector. 720p was plenty good for me. After reading plenty of reviews here and the various projector websites out there I narrowed my search down to the Optoma HD66 and the Epson 705HD, both going for +/- $650 at the time of this writing, and both highly rated.

A bit about me - I'm not a projector or electronics nut, but I do appreciate knowing that I have the best (or better) of what's out there when I do buy things of significant $$$. Male, early 30's. Don't watch any TV, just the occasional movie at home.

After much fuss, I decided to order the Epson. It seemed to have more features, had longer bulb life, and in the end I figured since I'm no projector connoisseur I would be more than impressed with its performance. However, I was not blown away enough, so I ordered the Optoma. I am keeping the Optoma, and returning the Epson. I tested both using a connection to my old Mac Powerbook G4 laptop, projecting onto a white wall painted matte white.

Here is what I learned:

Epson 705HD:

-LCD technology really does display "little pixels" that are visible if you are up close. Not really a big deal with a movie where things are moving all the time.
-Significantly brighter than the Optoma.
-Better designed box, integrated lense "cap" that slides, easier to use adjustable legs, more friendly packaging/manuel, carrying case. Basically you get the feeling that Epson put some thought into its product. Feels more name brand and consumer friendly.

I would like to comment on the notion that the Epson HD 705 projects grainy images and lacks adequate black levels. I suspect that the real culprit is the source material or DVD player because I have played regular DVD, HD, and Blue Ray movies through the 705 and they all looked fine. The source material was familar to me, and if anything they looked as sharp on a 80 inch projector screen than on my smaller LCD television. Last week I used the Spears & Munsil calibration disk ( a must to get your LCD or Projector calibrated correctly ) to adjust contrast and brightness ( the factory settings on the 705 are much too high ) and the blacks are now very black; in fact the entire picture quality has improved across the board. My DVD players were the Oppo ( standard definition) and the Panasonic B60 ( Blue Ray). I couldn't be happier with this projector and the wonderful images.

I have owned this unit for a couple of months now and overall I'm very pleased with it.

I would urge you to read the review here: [...]

This is an exhaustive review, that I read (and was published after I bought the product) but I think it is a very fair and accurate assessment of this projector.

The basic rundown is, If you are looking for a cheap (in projector terms) and very bright home projector that can easily double as lightweight business projector, this is your man. The picture in our light controlled Home Theatre is very very good, its actually pretty sharp for a 720p unit and the color reproduction is great.

The one, downside is the black levels. The blacks, aren't that black and you will notice this more than you would normally as the projector is actually a WXGA resolution (1280 x 768) so you will get a light band above and below the 720p display of a home theatre picture (I mostly watch Blu-ray discs through a PS3). In real use, this hasn't been an issue, the color and overall picture quality are so good that you just won't notice/care. If you watch Bladerunner everyday, the black levels might, just might be an issue for you. Otherwise, don't worry, you won't be disappointed by this projector.

Of course, if you do use this as a business projector, then the full WXGA resolution will be used by your computer (I have used it with my MacBook Pro) and again, the picture is great and the super bright picture is great in meeting rooms where the ambient light levels are high.

You can't really fault this projector, at the [...] price point, its a great value, especially with the 2yr warranty that Epson gives you and the supposed long lamp life. I'm very pleased with its performance.

I have been saving my money for a long time to buy a widescreen HD projector. I started with a SHARP office projector and upgraded to my previous setup which was an XGA Epson Powerlite 130c because my other one just didnt have enough lumens. My old Epson powerlite is almost as bright as this one, but it was great because it was 2200 lumens and i could watch it in the daytime. Well I bought this one for the same reason

Pros: It does exactly what its supposed to, which is to deliver my high def gaming and stream Hulu and Blu ray from my Girlfriends laptop. I paired mine up with an 11' 16:9 matte Da-Lite projector screen and it looks gorgeous all day all night. I really like how much you can zoom your picture size so i can watch all aspect ratios without moving it from its ceiling mount that i bought from amazon for 30 bucks. I don't know what the guy on the bottom of the screen is talking about because I love how detailed and lush everything looks even with all my lights on and windows open in the middle of the day. I would recommend this projector to anyone especially for people who are tired of watching their projector in a cave. These days I need the best of both worlds for High contrast Cinema and high brightness gaming and this unit delivers.

Cons: i noticed a slight "screen door" affect but every pixel is filled with color and light so I cant complain compared to the other projectors i sent back.
