Epson Powerlite S4 Projector Review - Overview


The S4 LCD projector offers plenty of performance, especially considering there are only a couple of projectors on the market, that sell for less. The combination of an extremely bright image with excellent colors, a great remote and menu layout,...

Extremely bright for the price

Lack of a zoom lens. Epson's eZoom does slightly degrade the image quality, mostly noticeable on small text, compared to an optical zoom lens

Looks good


Nice, bright picture.

I assumed component video meant the red, green and blue inputs, but it's actually through the monitor cable.
