    Absolutely love it.σσ>7wow.cc/EpsonProjector?ㅇ picture is fantastic speaker works ok but I have it hooked up to surround sound so it doesnt matter. I could not be happier with it. Its bright enough to have the lights on and sunlight and still see the picture. Of course it washes out some what but still very visible.

    I would have liked to learn more about the sound quality on this. I see when you have it set up outside you do not use additional speakers. Is is loud enough if you did a movie in the yard to hear the movie? Please review the sound. Thank you

    I'm very interested in this projector because of the awesome specs and cheap price, but I was really looking for 16:9 aspect ratio. I am trying to figure out if this has a widescreen option or some other way to not have just 4:3? Thanks!

    I did my research on a couple of sites and chose this projector as the best 3D capable 1080p projector for less than $1000

    Very nice review man. Thanks for your time. I am concerned about the fan noise. What is the difference between the ECO-mode and the normal mode with regards fan noise and image quality? Thankss 🙂

    Thanks for watching. Great question, just went back and looked – no, no audio out, which is a con. If you want to hook up to speakers, you will need to use the audio out on your source device.

    Nothing you could do from the Epson, but I guess you could run the audio from your source to a wireless device and then sync that with the sound bar. Sorry, not sure how that would work,

    Hey Austin, thanks for watching. In our testing, we did not do a great deal of smaller fonts, so can't comment about how clear it would be with smaller fonts. I can say on larger fonts, like title for a movie or name overlays, it did look great.

    Hi Tiffany, thanks for watching. There definitely is a fan that is blowing, but I guess I would not call it overly loud. You hear it before you start your movie, but once the movie is going, I don't really hear the fan. Hope that helps.
