A few weeks ago, we reviewed the excellent Optoma EP716 in the SVGA shootout. Now, following closely on its heels comes the Optoma EP719, an XGA business projector that retains the EP716's small form factor and low weight. At street prices around $1000, the EP719 offers a lot more resolution for a small price increase, and is an attractive option for both education settings and portable presentation use.
