Great value

 

I bought this as my living room TV in a small apartment. It's freakin AWESOME. You do have to pull the curtains if you want to watch in the middle of the day, but that's to be expected with a projector. At night it's great; early morning it's dim but...

Great projector for the price 720p resolution Bright enough (for a projector) Decent bulb life -- I got 4300 hours over 3 years. New bulbs are cheap. Throw ratio was perfect for my needs -- I had some trouble finding one with this ratio. GIves a screen...

Not 1080p Can't watch in full sunlight Bulb life a bit below expectation

Good budget projector

 

At first I had projector on my coffee table and the image was terrible but I found this was due to it automatically keystoning to make image appear "straight". After mounting on my ceiling the Image was great, I had made a custom screen myself from...

Excellent after a week

 

I did get an extra discount on this by purchasing during Newegg's 'Black November' sale; the price I paid was around $550. But if you're in the market for a low cost HD projector and this model has the right throw ratio, buy it.

Excellent little projector. Great price; great picture. I've had it just over a week now and am using it in my apartment. Projecting onto a plain white wall, with the projector sitting on a table right beside my couch. Distance from projector to the...

As mentioned, I have the projector sitting right beside me; on Eco mode the fan noise is audible but not at all problematic. With Eco mode off though the fan gets pretty loud; but being in an apartment I can't put the audio too loud so there's not much...

Epson 93+ - Nice Unit !!

 

The casing is a lighter plastic than my previous Epson product. I can feel the give of the casing when I pick it up in several areas when doing a one-hand pickup...I tend to be a bit more cautious when lifting the 93+ off a desk/stand.

This unit has been reliable since unpacking. Nice bright display which is easy to view against a white wall in a florescent lighted classroom. Sound level is minimal, thus doesn't interfere with my age-old hearing during Q&A ; A big plus is the ability...

The 93+ unit must be "on" to pass a video signal through to an attached LCD monitor. Previous Epson projector could be "off" and pass video through from an attached computer. Not a deal breaker, but annoying when projector standby status times out when...

Bright and Functional

 

From the first power up this machine has functioned well. In our home theater setting, it produces a 6x6 view and is very bright in the daylight, so that windows that once were draped are now left open. It is very easy to operate.

Great Projector

 

This is a nice projector that I have found is light and bright wich are two important things when it comes to buying a projector . I have also found that when playing louder content on the built in speaker it does not raddle wich can be very annoying...

Satisfactory

 

Overall we are quite satisfied with the projector. First we tested it by connecting it to the laptop to see how well it worked as a data projector and found it to be quite good. Then we connected it to our Blu-Ray player and watched a DVD movie. The...
