Sony VPL-EX3

 

What exactly is Sony doing so right? There have been some hardware misses, of course - we shudder whenever we think of its painful DRM-ridden MP3 players - but this projector is a sign of everything that is right with the electronics giant

Crisp visuals, Stays cool

Fan is noisy, Not the best for HD

This projector provides an impressive performance at a reasonable price

So far so good

 

This lamp has been working well. I have only been using it for two weeks though so we will see how it goes. So far the image is bright and no discoloration is visible.

Best bang for buck on GENUINE Sony lamp

 

Great price, genuine Sony lamp, good packaging (but be sure to still use some canned air on the projector itself), [...] One thing that keeps me from rating this 5 stars: warranty period. Lamp life is supposed to be 2K-3K hours but the average house...

Product Specifications

Priced to bring excellent brightness and advanced features within reach. It is ideal for a number of applications, especially for education and small - medium business. The control panel is located on the top of the unit and features large user-friendly keys for quick and easy setup. And, maintenance is made easy with Sony's synchronized lamp replacement and filter cleaning at 3000 hours. It allows presenters to display a transcription of the audio portion from video sources to provide interpretive information to viewers who wish to access it. The VPL-ES7 accepts a wide variety of input signals from standard to high definition including composite video, S-Video and analog RGB/component via an HD D-sub 15-pin connector. No need to turn out the lights! The VPL-ES7 delivers a color light output of 2000 lumens, bright enough to be clearly seen in normal room lighting. Listeners can take notes and follow along with handouts. Password protection helps prevent unauthorized usage. The control panels can be locked preventing inadvertent or unauthorized adjustments. And there's even a Kensington -style lock port for physical locking. Highly portable could mean easily lost, but Sony built in features to protect you. Simply turn off the projector, unplug the power cord and GO! In today's fast pace world, you have to keep moving! The VPL-ES7 displays an 80 inch image from approx. 8 feet away. Get the bigger picture even in a small classroom or cozy conference room!
