This Epson Pro projector is without a doubt the best projector I've ever used. It's extremely bright, with excellent picture quality. It has a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels so you can use it to watch full HD (1920 x 1080) content. The aspect ratio is 16:10 but it supports the correct display of 16:9 sources by adding thin black bars at the top and bottom. It's a 3LCD projector and the color is VERY vivid. Black levels aren't perfectly black, but are pretty good and are about the best you'll find at this price point.There are 5 picture/color modes that you can easily cycle through using a button on the remote: Presentation, Cinema, sRGB (best for computer sources), Blackboard (intended for use on a green chalkboard), and Dynamic (best for video games). They are all subtly different, so you can just quickly cycle through them and see what looks best for any given application. Dynamic is the brightest.This thing is BRIGHT, so you can use it in a lit room. Obivously, the darker the room, the better the image will look, but if you're doing a presentation in a light room, the image will be plenty visible. Lamp life is rated at 6,000 hours, which is pretty good. It has an ""ECO"" mode that extends lamp life to 10,000 hours. The lamp is user-replaceable and replacement lamps (ELPLP96, model #V13H010L96) can be ordered from Epson for $49, which is very reasonable. The lamp contains mercury, so be careful of how you dispose of it.The downside to the bright light is that it gets very hot, so there is a LOUD fan blowing constantly to keep the light from overheating. So if you're thinking of getting this for a living room to watch movies, it probably won't work for you because the fan would be too annoying. If you want to use this for movies, you'll need a setup where you can be sitting away from this projector. Epson rates the fan noise at 37dB, or 26dB in ECO mode.ECO mode is worth a try because you might find it still is plenty bright, and it cuts down fan noise some and extends lamp life.Keep in mind this projector is intended more for office/school use than for home theatre. The picture is excellent and it makes a great theatre projector, but there are limitations; mainly, there is no audio out, which could be a problem depending on your setup. If you want to use something like a Roku or Apple TV that sends audio through HDMI, there's no way to get audio out of this projector to some external speakers unless you buy a separate HDMI picture/audio splitter.The built-in 2W speaker is very weak. It's a mono speaker that has unpleasant distortion at high volumes. It's about as good as cheap laptop computer speakers. So, you'll definitely want external speakers for any situation where you need serious volume.It comes with a custom-fitted soft padded carrying case with a carrying strap, which is a really great thing to include.The remote control takes two AA batteries. Two Toshiba-brand batteries are included in the box.Interestingly, it has a ""High Altitude"" mode in case you use this at an altitude of higher than 4921 feet. I'm at about 4500 feet so I just narrowly escaped this mode, but for you mile-high city types, keep this in mind. The manual says that it helps to regulate the internal temperature properly.The projector is rated at 298W, so it's pretty power-hungry. ECO mode cuts this down to 219W.If you want a powerful, bright projector with an excellent picture, this is a great choice as long as you understand its limitations. I'd say its the best picture quality you can get at this price point.
