Recently I had the opportunity to check out one of Epson’s newest multimedia projector models—the EX71 ($749)—which is the flagship model in a line that also includes the EX51 ($649) and the EX31 ($549). I was excited to put the EX71 through the wringer and test all of its cool and useful features. I was especially interested in testing out the EX71’s high definition capabilities and 16:10 widescreen WXGA resolution.
The Epson EX71 is marketed as a business multimedia projector ideal for presentations, slide shows, PowerPoint and traveling. Aside from testing out this unit in those key areas, I also wanted to test out its image quality and overall ease of use when viewing movies, TV shows and HD content.
I must say that I was impressed with many aspects of the EX71, and it lived up to my expectations time and time again. What more would you expect from the top-selling projector brand worldwide?
Unboxing my EX71 review unit, I found the following items:
· EX71 Projector
· Power cable
· VGA computer cable
· USB cable
· Soft carrying case
· Remote control
· User manual CD/Quick setup guide
(Note: Your unit’s contents may vary from my review unit)
The EX71 included everything I needed—short of a projector screen—to set up the projector quickly and easily. Once unboxed, I began “playing around” with the projector just to see how easy it was to use before opening up the manual/quick start guide for assistance. I was pleasantly surprised with the EX71’s ease-of-use and simple design, but more on that later…
