Epson Powerlite S4 Projector Review - Overview

 

The S4 LCD projector offers plenty of performance, especially considering there are only a couple of projectors on the market, that sell for less. The combination of an extremely bright image with excellent colors, a great remote and menu layout,...

Extremely bright for the price

Lack of a zoom lens. Epson's eZoom does slightly degrade the image quality, mostly noticeable on small text, compared to an optical zoom lens

Looks good

 

Nice, bright picture.

I assumed component video meant the red, green and blue inputs, but it's actually through the monitor cable.

Great Projector!

 

Great, bright picture.

800X600, not ideal resolution but it's all about viewing distance.

Amazing quality!!!!

 

I have the older version of this the S3, but it is practically the same thing.

There are no cons directly.
