Review by Nick

Really happy with this projector. Image quality could be better but I guess you get what you pay for. Lamp lasted for 2500 hours but managed to get a new one really cheap from

Review by CEE

It is a good pictured screen colors are decent and the brightness for the price is very good and remarkeably bright.

Any Problems: The projector is a good unit but the legs are to be desired. On ecenter front support is at time frustrating and rather fragile. Makes not so sturdy in some elevated spots.

Review by snoopy

The unit is fairly light and feels like a small drop could do a lot of damage (now we shouldn't be dropping projectors in any case, but you get my point). Aside from this, the unit maintains a solid image, short throw and good brightness. The colour depth isnt there, but with such a low contrast, what would you expect. The figure 8 power is fantastic if you suffer from ground loop issues with other devices (which I have suffered) - figure 8 does not earth, so no grounding issues like other IEC ports. Good support from Epson too as I bought two units with an offer to get a free lamp each. I forgot to claim it, but they let me have the lamps late - kudos to Epson! The remote works well and 'quickly' (some projectors and cheap electronic devices have remotes that require you to hold for buttons for 1 or 2 seconds before anything is done) - this is not the case here. Very reliable For its price, it is good unit with bright picture and USB support on top of everything else Ive mentioned. 7.5/10

Any Problems: Had 2 units for 1year+ and no problems to date.
