Bright LCD Projector

 

One of the huge reasons other than low price that I considered this projector was the replacement lamp cost. My other Mitsubishi bulbs are $400+ while the Epson S5 MSRP bulb is $199! Bottom line the projector is really bright, affordable and great for...

At first I was hesitant of buying this since it's svga and had no other reviews. But I'm glad I did. The application for this projector is for a church in a multi-purpose environment. This projector is extremely bright. It's perfect for videos and...

The projector is extremely light, great for traveling. One thing I'm worried about is the plastic casing feels "fisher-price" like. My projector is mounted up in the ceiling so I'm not too worried about it in my scenario. Also the remote control is...
