It was better than I expected for the price
July 5, 2017
It works exactly as a cheap projector should. It was better than I expected for the price. If you are some kind of quality nut - this isnt for you. It is just a cheap projector. Its held up well and it does its job.
not bad for a back yard kids movie night out

For 60 bucks, not bad for a back yard kids movie night out...
Wow. I should of get this long ago!!
January 16, 2017
I love this. So much fun to watch even tho it's not high res but i can careless, what you expect for something under 80 buck, take a little to adjust but once you got it. Look great my kids love to watch it all the times and this will accept pretty much every format you drow at it. Includes HDMI port, USB port and SD card Slot AV out Headphones jack out. Buy it you will not disappointed!!
Great small form factor projector.

Lit up my bedroom for a movie night, had the whole family tackling the bed and relaxing. Life sized Angry Birds was colorful, clear and bright.Great little projector.The only draw back is that the sound, while adequate for presentations and such, is very tinny. I had to have a receiver to make the most of it.

January 2, 2017
For being a sixty dollar projector, this thing is pretty awesome. You can find some comparable ones in the price range but i have not had any issues with this. It does require a dark room, So day use is limited to maybe a basement, I use it with my laptop, HDMI cable, and Bluetooth speaker (controlled by laptop) and it impresses all who see it.
Very nice little projector for the money!
January 28, 2016
I didn’t need this projector because I already own an LG PA70G LED projector. I bought this cheap Chinese projector anyway because it was on sale for only $66.39 free shipping!Performance is poor comparing it against any of my other projectors. However, I did not expect high performance from this $66 projector. I paid $1000 for my first projector (InFocus X1) 14 years ago. This little Chinese LED projector actually outperforms that ancient X1 projector. Also, with USB media playback features, this makes one tidy little portable unit when traveling. This will be fantastic for our next California trip.I am planning on also creating a miniature kids movie theater for my daughter and her friends. Since the fan on this projector is LOUD, I will have to build it into some sort of sound proof enclosure with an opening just for the image to exit.Very nice little projector for the money!
Excellent, great luminosity
October 15, 2016
Excellent, great luminosity, no signs of wearing it, which for a refurbished projector means that it was very well taken cared off, easy to navigate, came with all accessories, even the batteries.
-Great deal of Lumens (3000 True lumens) great deal on a lighten environment.
-No scratches nor dims
-All original accessories and bag
-Wide connectivity options
-UI user friendly
-Remote has a verified 40ft range front and back.
The only thing that it was a little disappointing was the fact that the screen is not a perfect square, top left corner is a bit out of square which is kind of uncomfortable for the one that notices it, it is very slight but it's there
Other thoughts: beside the con, it can be worked around, simply zoom out and make the edge overlap the black edge of the screen, play a bit with the lifter knobs and position of the projector and it's fairly unnoticeable.
January 23, 2016
great projector.. did exactly what I wanted it for. I really like being able to plug in a thumb drive full of JPeg files and run thru them like a tray of slides.
plug it into an HP windows 10 lap top and project the screen on the wall .. works perfect.
December 9, 2015
Just got it 2 days ago. Easy set up don't require any adjustments unless you need to adjust your picture display to fit the screen no unneeded set up. The instruction guide to the point not a lot of unnecessary talk. Excellent quality view. Shows good when lights on and in dark room. Light weight, nice carrying case. When delivered also contained 2 cords to use HDMI and USB. Packaged well. Remote is good it has a pointer haven't used it yet. I also bought the Epson Duet 80 inch Projector Screen and the picture displays very good on the screen. EXCEPTIONAL QUALITY Glad i got it. For the price i think i got a winner when i look at some of the more pricier Projectors i am trying to figure out what more they can offer than this one. I primarily purchased the Projector for presentations but it also work well with videos. Will add screenshots to show some viewing.
October 24, 2015
Awesome projector for the price!! Image is very bright, and clear! We now have a home theater which is really cool!
Exactly what I needed
December 14, 2013
Works great, bright display, easy to connect and use. I use this for conferences and the room does not have to be pitch black to be able to see the projections.

Great for the price
January 10, 2017
Really like it. Use it outside and works great. Kind of temperamental to get adjusted but once adjusted it is nice picture. Only issue is the fan is loud and volume is weak
Need to black out room
November 2, 2016
For the price you cannot beat it! you do lose quality when you make the size of the display bigger. does not work well in light based rooms. You really need to black out the room to get a good quality.
But it's pretty good considering
October 9, 2016
You get what you pay for. But it's pretty good considering.
Bang for your buck
March 20, 2016
I was pretty nervous while waiting for this to arrive, after reading a few of the reviews. But I am very happy with the quality of this product. As with any projector you will need to spend a few days testing it out to get the settings just right for your environment. I've had this for about a week now, and I think I've got it to its optimal settings. I don't recommend hanging it from the ceiling, as the corners of the screen tend to get a bit blurry. At 1080i, I had to drop the digital sharpness dramatically in order to remove the ghost-haize. However, at 720p everything comes in crisp and clear. I had to mess with the color, brightness, and contrast a lot to find a balance that works. It is set up in my basement and projecting onto a home made screen I made from a handful of clips and 2 while disposable table cloths. At 100" top left corner to bottom right corner, the image looks great! I've used it to watch Netflix and play PS3 and Xbox 360, and there is less HDMI-delay than on my regular LCD TV. At 720p the games look great, but without dropping the sharpness 1080i has a lot of haize, but this could be because I'm using a 50 foot HDMI cable. I have 2 dimmable LED bulbs between my couch and the screen, and ever very dark games (IE Alien Isolation) are still very playable with the bulbs at low light. I also have tested with my sim-racing rig, and Forza is a blast with a nearly full 90° viewing angle. Gran Turismo looks great too! I wouldn't consider this projector for any kind of professional gaming, but it is excellent for casual to moderate gamers.The fan, as other have mentioned, is a bit loud, but is easy to ignore. If you are heavily bothered by fan noise, I recommend utilizing the internal audio on the projector along with an external stereo, as the internal audio when balanced with external stereo can easily mask the fan noise. With the projector positioned just behind my couch, I can easily plug a pair of headphones into it without issue. In fact, I use a set of TurtleBeaches that use USB to amplify the audio, and the audio ports are conveniently placed right next to the USB ports.While this may not be a top of the line projector, with automatic focus and brightness, with a little love you can make this projector an awesome, and cheap, addition to your home theater experience. If you love tuning your media devices to your liking, this is the piece for you.
Pro: everything. Con: sound.
November 11, 2015
This is absolutely unbeatable for the price. It's a little dim and the sound quality leaves much to be desired, but it has decent enough resolution which is the most important thing. I hooked my amazon fire stick TV into the HDMI port and powered it from the USB port on the projector and it works flawlessly! I definitely suggest speakers to go with it.

Good for parties
A good tool.
January 23, 2017
Works perfectly, good to take around to speaking engagements. At first I thought the connection to my laptop would be problematic and the first time, I spent an hour getting it to work correctly, but once I figure it out, it was okay. I haven't tried it with other sourced than a laptop. My only wish was that it would be easier to use all the options and set up faster.
Great entry-level projector!
November 30, 2015
I went back and forth as this was my first projector. I finally decided on this one for the amazing price as well as the fact that I work with this model regularly at work and was satisfed with its easy-to-use ability. Having now gotten it, I can say that I am very pleased with my decision and have begun watching many Christmas movies for the season on it. As other customers said, ıt ıs sometimes a little loud the fan, but thats not a problem as you kind of need external speakers for proper volume so thats soon lost in better sound quality. Thus far we have had no problems with it, though I would recommend getting a ceiling mount to save yourself the pain of constantly adjusting it to fit the wall. We have two cats who we are nervous about leaving it around at night, and having that overhead mount would have been nice.

My initial experience with this projector was very poor. Upon delivery the FedEx guy DROPPED the box at my feet so I could sign for it. Upon opening the box and setting up the projector I got an error which read “Error in Auto Iris – Contact Nearest Epson Service Center”…….FANTASTIC! Apparently the rough treatment of the box knocked the light source out of alignment which rendered the projector useless. I can’t blame the FedEx guy too much because the box was the basic Amazon box with no indicators that the box did indeed contain fragile material. I immediately contacted the Epson service center and was informed my projector was still under warranty (of course it was, five minutes out of the box it better be!) A new projector arrived 2 days later in 100% working order with clear indications on the box that a sensitive projector was enclosed and “fragile” was expressly indicated. The exchange process was simple with prepaid shipping for the return.
NOW, about the projector. Background for my intended use for said projector: I work for a law firm and we use the projector at meetings to display PowerPoint presentations and at trial to display documents used as evidence/exhibits. This is not my first projector. I was pleasantly surprised and pleased with the easy setup and immediate connection when using the USB cord. I projected onto a dark grey wall in our conference room and all colors were easily discernible with a clear image. Focusing and leveling are simple with easy to use controls. When you slide the shutter closed in front of the lens the light powers off and goes into what I would call a “rest mode” – this does not shut down the projector. As soon as you slide the shutter open the lamp kicks back on. This is a helpful feature because if left on for long periods of time the projector does get hot. Instead of turning the projector completely off, the “rest mode” allows the unit to cool down while not in use. The remote is possibly the BEST function of the projector. Instead of manually controlling from my laptop I can now click through slides from presentation mode while I’m standing at a podium or in the front of the room. The remote also has a zoom feature, which makes it easy to zoom in on key material on a displayed document. I understand that it has wireless capabilities and that is definitely a plus I will attempt before my next trial. Projector came with a padded carrying case, remote and necessary cords. Overall a good purchase for the price compared to other more expensive models. I would recommend this product, just watch for your delivery guy and try to prevent any dropping of your box.

Using this with a projector screen, i have clear video even in bright light. The auido is not good though, and it has no connection for external speakers
Good machine; poor product description.
November 16, 2013
I received it yesterday and used it for a presentation today. LIghtweight, very strong, clear light, adjustable tilt on lens as well as adjustable feet and plastic prop. The description doesn't say that it includes a carrying case but it does. The remote runs the machine(batteries included), but instead of a laser pointer it shows a double arrow onscreen which is clumsily operated with the arrow keys. I purchased a laser pointer to use instead. For today's lecture, which was to a small group, I projected onto a dry-erase board so that I could use marker on the images. It worked well. It can also project clearly at a distance on a wall or larger screen. It doesn't come with the wireless key; you have to purchase it seperately. It was a good thing that today's setup allowed me to connect my laptop closeby. Except for the lack of product disclosure above (I bought another carrying case, since it was bundled with the laptop and I assumed there wasn't one. Now I have to return the case and pay $9 for shipping!), it worked well for what I needed.

1000 Lumens? It sure doesn't look like it.
March 27, 2017
Basically, it's loud, dim, and not quite what I expected. It needs to be very dark to get a watchable image. It's basically a kids toy.
October 30, 2016
Difficult to set up due to lack of English instruction
February 2, 2016
Its good for the price, the bottom of the screen is blurry when its projecting buts thats all
November 8, 2015
It's a good value for the money. Not for home theater or movies. Best for digital decor use & office presentations.
The projected images look great.
October 1, 2015
My only criticism is that is is loud and hot (it's basically a little heater with blower and all). Are all projectors this loud and hot? I suppose it's all those lumens. The projected images look great.
I got some discoloration after having this on all day ...
September 28, 2015
I got some discoloration after having this on all day for a conference. This has never happened before. I think it overheated. The next time I use it I will prop the legs up so the bottom can breath. We just had it flat on the table and it needed air.
April 7, 2015
The description is very misleading. You have to buy the extra $80 wireless adapter if you want to use an IPAD or other swirls device. I ordered that extra part still wouldn't work with Apple, had to buy Apple TV before the system would work wirelessly with IPAD. Very disappointed, took extra $200 to do what it was claimed to be able to do. Projector is good, but don't bel;eve their description of capabilities.
Functional but not real adaptable
March 27, 2014
The projecter doesn't adapt to fit the screen. You have to physically move it forward or back to fit the screen. It is relatively quiet, and doesn't need to cool off like old models.

Need to be pitch black dark.
January 12, 2016
This is a very low end projector. It's definitely not a high def. You will need near black to see things little clear. I'm waiting on a No Moon night with all the lights off.
December 17, 2015
The brightness is OK; the image is visible at day. BUT The fan is too loud. No zoom function. The Keystone is limited.TIPS. Use only the INPUT button to change the input source.I will update more later.
April 10, 2015
Only used this for one day and had to send it back. I guess you get what you pay for (and this is inexpensive), but the image quality is very poor.
I use this to project financial projections in an office setting, and you could barely make out the numbers being projected.
January 7, 2015
I did not recieved remote control and instructional cd with this package
February 17, 2014
The Espson EX3220 was east to set up and operate, and it was certainly bright enough for a lighted room -- just as advertised. However, the resolution was not that great when viewing a standard Power Point slide blown up large enough for 20 or more people in a room to see. I returned the model and bought the EX5220 for about $95 more. I've shown two presentations now with this upgraded model and am very satisfied with the resolution of the EX5220 over the EX3220.
February 2, 2014
I bought this projector for movies at home but my wall space is only seven feet wide so the projector would have to sit in the center of the room to fit the screen, or use the electronic zoom which made the picture smaller but left a foot wide halo around the picture. Also the image looks like it has a screen door across it. I decided on a much higher resolution projector and am happy with the change. I did end up spending almost double though.
Poor image quality.
December 12, 2013
The quality of the image was poor. I shouldn't have expected too much considering it has a native resolution of 800x600. The bag that came with it was cheap. If that was sold separately I would have never purchased it. I probably would have kept it for a "throw around" projector to use for block parties, but the projector casts a light around the image. For example, if your screen is 92" and you fill the screen with the image, the projector will cast light that would fit on a screen of 150" +. In other words, there will be a boxed area of light around the image. I found this annoying as it nearly lit the room up and you could see silhouettes in it.
Long story short, returned it within an hour of receiving it.

Stay away. This product arrived defective. Would not stay on more that 10 minutes.
DO NOT BUY.
January 25, 2016
This projector is horrible. Definitely not as crisp as the other reviews say. It says 1080p, false, only 480. if you go any more than 50 inch, you will start to see the pixels. Majority of the screen is blurry, only about 10% in the center is clear. I played Family guy as a test run, all the characters outlines were fuzzy, which gave me a headache after 5 mins.I got the Qumi q5 about a year ago, only 720p for 300$. if you want a cheap projector look into that. That goes up to 90" super crisp and clear.
Pain working with seller. Don't fall for the price. Quality not at all reasonable .
December 30, 2015
The product is not good. It does not focus properly. And they have worst return policy. I have been sending all information and asking them to refund. And each time the support team responds with more information. Seems they are not interested to refund.
Don't waste your time.
November 15, 2015
Everything seemed to be going great, I had it connected to my dvd player, then I popped in a dvd and all I got was the blue screen of death. I could hear my movie playing on my surround sound, but the projector remained unresponsive. Don't waste your time, at least with this seller.

Horrible picture quality. Very pixellated and blurred. I am returning the item.
Stopped working after 2 months.
February 20, 2014
I bought this in Dec and started using it. Initially it was just great, however lately after using it for a month, the projector started acting crazy. It gets stuck after using for an hour or so and I have to reboot it and also I see that the corners of the image displayed goes black. I am not really happy with the product and I feel i wasted my money :( !!!!
