    "The Epson EX9200 Pro is one of the best home theater projectors under $1,000. First of all, the picture is HD quality and very bright. Second, the projector weighs less than 6 pounds, which is quite light for this sort of thing in my experience. Third, the price comes in at just under $734, which is well under the $1,000 budget I had allocated. Finally, it's held up with no technical issues after one year of regular use. This projector gets my highest recommendation."

I think this offers users the mobility they need in terms of its size. I can definitely see this device being outshined by more expensive models, but for the price you can't really beat it."

This device is about the best one I've ever used, although it can be somewhat confusing at first figuring out all the options it offers. Once I cleared that hurdle, however, I quickly realized I'll never want to use a different projector than this one."

I am tech savvy and was able to find something he would love that he did not know he wanted. This is the best gift-giving success story I have had with him."
