    Great colors, a high resolution, and stunning brightness (in both 2D and 3D) make this the best under 1000$ projector from Epson. It's a great entry-level projector.

    "I think this is a great choice for a video projector. It works with a cable box or a streaming device like a Roku or Chromecast - anything MHL enabled. It does have some lag on video games, but for TV and movies it is great. You can use a screen you buy or just paint on on the wall. There is a small learning curve, but it is well worth it!"

    "I use this portable projector at work because I often need to present to clients. I really love how powerful the 3000-lumen projector is - I don't often get a dedicated screening room in which to work, and contracts depend on presented work looking good! This is incredibly easy to set-up and use, which is good as I can't keep clients waiting while I play tech support. This is a great system!"

    "I remember when I was in school I always got excited when the teacher would pull down the shade on the blackboard and turn the lights out. That means we were watching slides or videos. It was a great time because we didn't have to do classwork for a little while we just got to see exciting things on the projector."
