Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 705HD


Compact & bright projector that produces a lot of light, but lackluster color performance.

The Epson 705HD is a compelling package for the user who needs a powerful projector in a compact package. It has enough light output to illuminate a medium sized screen and is small enough to fit into a carry-on bag. While the fan is somewhat noisy and...

Not Happy


While on one hand, this is sort of the name of the game when it comes to playing with projectors, on the other, I'd expect a 200 bulb to work properly.

Quick change-out, just a few screws. The lamp assembly just snaps in where the old one went

My unit very quickly developed a large, vertical red line on the left side of the projection. It still works, but once you notice it, it's hard to not see it. Pretty rough for a $200 purchase

Had this for 3 years and used it as my tv.


Died last night but it was so awesome that I am writing a review and getting a replacement bulb. True HD with great colours. I had it calibrated and my movies were like in the cinema. It did over 3000 hrs in eco mode. Definitely worth the money.

Great Buy! Value & Performance!


I've had this projector for nearly 2 years now, and I think only now will I have to think about getting a new bulb. Granted I don't have a TV subscription and use only for streaming sports, movies and gaming, it still seems to have lasted quite some...

My experience with 705HD Projector


My first experience with the projector was puzzling. I have one lap top with Windows XP and another one with Windows 7 operating system. I followed the manual but to no avail. Thanks to your friendly and capable tech support everything is now in a...
