Expert review by : Art Feierman (

Epson Powerlite S6


The Powerlite S6 mainly differs from the W6 and S6 projectors in that it is an SVGA (800 x 600) projector. It is the same size and shape as the W6 and 78, weighing in at 6 pounds, just slightly less than the 78?s 6.2 pounds. At 2200 lumens, the S6...

I am very happy I made this purchase. The small, light weight design makes it easy to carry on business trips. This projector also seems brighter than others I have used at twice the price.

Light weight, easy setup, very bright for a projector at this price

Audio system is weak. 1 watt speaker is not strong enough for ''movie night

Good value projector


You can change the bulb and the filter without having to unmount the projector from the ceiling.

Easy to use, good picture for the price. I hook it up to Directv, Playstation and DVD player and they all look amazing. Flexible picture image. Long bulb life

Only one component(VGA) input. No HDMI or DVI. Kinda bland looking

Outstanding performance and value


Outstanding performance: I am currently projecting an image over 120 inches (diagonal). The image is bright, very sharp and crisp. The very high contrast ratio generates excellent blacks and very clear "low light" scenes in movies, etc.

Sharp Picture, Easy To Setup, Good Focus
