Optoma EP770
Portable XGA Projector

Bill Livolsi, May 3, 2007

Portable projectors are often a lesson in compromise. A very bright projector is versatile but heavy, while a very light projector is portable, but less flexible.

Enter the Optoma EP770, a 3000 lumen XGA projector weighing in at 5.3 pounds. This diminutive projector has something for everyone: monitor loop-through for educators, high lumen output and low weight for travelers, good color and contrast for photographers, and a reasonable price tag. The EP770 is a steal at just $1299.
