3x Brighter Colors with Epson

Brilliant image quality requires high color brightness (color light output), and Epson 3LCD projectors have 3x Brighter Colors than leading competitive projectors.

One brightness measurement (lumens) is not enough. A projector‘s specification needs to show both high color brightness and high white brightness. If color brightness is lower than white brightness, images may be dark, dull and lose detail. If not provided, be sure to ask for a projector’s color brightness specification.

Get consistent, true-to-life color with Epson, whether you’re projecting images with deep, dark colors or a white screen with text.

4Worth the purchase. Just remember that you dont get great speakers or audio out jack.
By alexander
It truly is a great projector. The weight, size, dimensions, the whole bit. The bag, remote, cables. Just really worth every penny. I didn't give it a fifth star for two reasons. It automatically transfers the audio to the projector when you use the hdmi cable and the speaker is worse than a laptop speaker, I mean it works and its decent, just not good for quiet moments in movies or presentations. Second, when you use USB instead of hdmi, even in presentations, theres choppy lag. So make sure to use the hdmi cable and go through your computer settings to disable other devices from rerouting the sound from your computer to another device. Once you disable that, your laptop speakers will carry the sound or whatever speakers you have hooked up to them. :)
Really odd that the manufacturer didn't make the audio jack that is on the projector and audio out. Instead its an audio in, considering the mild loudness of the built in speakers.

3Epson Powerlite 1761W projector from Amazon
By Mrs. May I
I paid $699 which is the price that came up when I did a search by item name. Two days later, I'm researching set up and see a price on CNET. The exact item is now $664.69 That would ordinarily NOT make me a happy Amazon buyer, except that when I called Amazon, they refunded the difference. Way to go, Amazon!

As to the projector itself: Wireless setup is a pain and instructions overall are confusing. I bought the more expensive model especially for the wireless; so I'm going to have to call tech support to see if they can get that set up for me. I'll update if I get that resolved.

Again, the instructions are obtuse and if I hadn't had experience with other projectors, I would have given up; but otherwise it was actually easy to set up with cables. Both cables supplied (USB and VGA -- it does not come with an HDMI cable) worked fine. But the software for the USB connection is funky and did not play well with my Mac Air. At first it said I needed to use the "disconnect" from the dropdown menu--and then that option disappeared the second time I turned it on.

The machine runs uncomfortably hot, making it not such a quick "put away" as advertised. I had to wait quite a while for it to cool down before I felt OK about putting it in its case. The case just barely fits in an "under the seat carry on" bag. I would think Epson would have paid attention to something like that for business users who obviously buy this lightweight projector for travel.

I bought it only because it is lightweight for traveling. And for the weight, it does a fine job and is fairly affordable.

4Working very well, and I will purchase more of these as needed.
By Razer
There are many great reviews on here already that cover this product very well so I will be brief. I have had this now for a couple of months and purchased based on the reviews here, and elsewhere, that praised it. I am very happy with it, and as this is used in a conference area many people use it and they too are very pleased. This is a great upgrade from our old unit, and the features work as advertised for us anyway.

Great focus and sharpness on our screen, and the brightness is great. We have used it several times now with all the lights on in the room where the old unit required dimming the lights to see at all.

Only major oddity is the wireless adapter having to be installed by you. Yes, it's dead simple but still odd to have to do it. Wireless setup could be easier, but then again it is a projector so I'm not sure what you could do to make it really easy? I had no issues but many of my other users would never have figured it out.

Wireless projection has been tested from Android and iOS users successfully, no surprises there so far.

In the end, we are very pleased and I would recommend this projector to others.

EDIT - 2/27/14 - I've now had this in service for over 6 months and it is still working very well. It is still surprising the users at how sharp and bright it is compared to our old unit. I just connected this to an Apple TV this week and spent some time tweaking it and playing with 1080P video on it and it really looked great. Good enough in fact that I'd already purchased a 70" TV to install in the conference room for the Apple TV to connect to, and now we're not going to do that as the projector works plenty well. Now I have to figure out what to do with a 70" TV, but I'm sure I'll come up with something!
