One of Epsonís newest multimedia projectors for 2011 is the EX7200, which is a widescreen-compatible model designed primarily for business use. However, its high definition (HD) capabilities make it ideal for home theater use as well Ė it can be ceiling, wall or table-mounted.
As with most other Epson projectors Iíve tested in recent years, the EX7200 is extremely easy to set up and use. Plug-and-play functionality makes it quick and easy to have a business presentation setup in less than a minute. And the fast start-up and shut-down times are a welcome addition in the EX7200 as well; older projectors have a cooling down period and often long wait times to power up, but not this projector.

The Epson EX7200 offers a design that is similar to other projectors in the EX-lineup. Itís relatively small in size, at about 12 x 9 x 3 (WxLxH) inches. Its casing is an attractive piano black glossy finish that would look nice mounted on the ceiling or a wall. The controls are located conveniently on the top of the unit, and they are pretty straightforward; anyone with any bit of technical knowledge will have no problem getting this thing fired up and running without the need for the setup manual.
The lens features a manual open/close door along with screen size and focus adjusters near the front of the projector. These adjusters are pretty sensitive, although I found that to be plus, not a negative. A riser retracts from the bottom of the projector if you need to tilt it up a few inches for tabletop use. All of the connections and buttons are nicely labeled with large, easy-to-read lettering.
The remote control is nice to have. It offers all of the same options that the on-board controls do, but itís a more convenient option for presentations, movies or other situations where you may not have easy access to the projector controls. You can use the remote as a pointer Ė sort of like a laser pointer Ė during a presentation, but itís not very useful. Itís slow and only moves as you push the arrow buttons on the remote.
