I’m not a digital geek so you won’t get a thorough overview from me. To make up for that i have taken plenty of photos to go alongside my review. I’m a casual console gamer and i love watching movies so when this became available on the vine i was keen to get started. It arrived in a very sturdy well packed box. The power cable is about a meter long so it gave me enough cable length to set it up where i wanted it to be. If you’re anything like me i read the manual last 😝. It was very easy to use from the start. When i switched it on the demo setting was active and it showed a really big and extremely clear image on my wall. The room looks dark in the photo but it wasn’t dark in the room. I was impressed with how clear it is.
Bright and clear image even in daylight. Runs very quietly with minimal noise interference from the projector fan. The resolution appears far better than i expected from such a small unit and makes this little projector a bargain. Running this from an apple tv 4k box, everything installed and linked first time.
Epson laser projectorthis is my first laser projector and i very much like it. What i like…bright clear picture even if the room is not dark, it is easy to forget you are watching a projectorloud built in speaker – best projector sound i’ve ever heard. Simple hdmi connection – one hdmi socket, no messing. Low running cost – laser light source uses a lot less electricity than standard halide lampsvery long lamp life – 10 years quiet operation – hardly any noiseinstant on/off, no cooling required. Quick corner function for usual install locationsi am no newcomer when it comes to projectors, up until recently i was a professional av (audio visual) technician & club vj from the early eighties to 2015, and now i run a video production company, so i have seen the lot when it comes to projecting video & computer graphics. I’ve owned many lcd & dlp projectors of assorted types, (and some 3 gun ones) from the standard compact business/home projectors up to large auditorium projectors with replaceable lenses and very high brightness using several lamps filled with rare gasses. But this is my first projector powered by the light of a laser. I am using it with a hdmi adaptor for my ipad so i can use iplayer, youtube etc. But i will get a firestick for it soon. Epson have always produced good quality projectors, the models i owned always worked very well so i had high expectations of this projector and they have been met & a little exceeded.
Cons:the zoom reduces the resolution. I was hoping this would be a replacement for my 4 year old philips screeneo 720p but its not. The projector has to sit in the middle of the room or the picture is across 3 walls. If i use the zoom to scale it down it reduces the resolution. I know this because i counted the pixels across a ‘o’ in the word ‘zoom’ on the zoom menu. I was easily able to count the pixels because it is like an old style crt tv with a black grid between each pixel. Really similar to my m18(vankyo v600) and about the same quality nearly. Unlike my screeneo which is a dlp led which does not have a black grid or any gaps between pixels. The epson is really bright and can be used in non direct daylight.
Really clear image and colour, quick and easy to use, great indoors and out.
