Optoma EP727 review


A simple projector with a love for game consoles

DLP Chip ; Great image quality

Native 4:3 ; Lower resolution than most

A great little projector that can handle films as well as it can office documents and a bit of a bargain to boot

Optoma EP727 review


Optoma's EP727 is the joint-smallest projector, along with Panasonic's PT-LB51NTEA. At 2kg it weighs slightly more, but it's still light enough to be carried easily.

Optoma EP727


This $700 projector is less than 5 pounds but is loaded with high-end features.

Very attractive price ; Full-featured remote control ; Great contrast ratio ; Relatively light weight for budget model

Confusing remote control buttons/menu ; Lacks RCA-style video connector
