    IMPRESSIVE!!!

    Posted
    Hollie

    This is a review for the Epson EX3260 Projector that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review. I honestly couldn't be more pleased with the Epson EX3260 Projector! First off, I would just like to state that I am in no way technically savvy. While I do use complicated machinery and electronics in my line of work, I admit that I usually have an assistant that sets them up and leads me through the basic operations. With that being said, I was beyond impressed with how easy the setup of the Epson EX3260 was. The directions were clear and the illustrations provided made it practically impossible to make a mistake. I alone had this projector set up and running in minutes. The ports (HDMI, USB, Computer) are clearly labeled so you're not searching for what cord goes where. I absolutely love that multiple video devices (tablets, smartphones, digital cameras, flash drives) are able to be connected (*may require downloading an app or using an additional adapter). This makes it so convenient to project whatever info/multi media that I need without having to download it all to my computer. Another incredible feature that has made the projector a real pleasure to operate is the remote. You can pretty much control everything you need to from it - source selection, menu, home screen etc. And you don't have to be standing right in front of the projector either. You can freely move about the room while operating the remote. Perhaps the most impressive feature of the Epson EX3260 is the quality of the images. The resolution and the color brightness absolutely blew me away! My old projector was grainy & blurry and the colors just ran together. The Epson EX3260 projects sharp, bright, crystal clear images that I have never before seen with a projector. Having both high color brightness and high white brightness truly makes a world of difference! It's really quite amazing! The quick access keys on the top of the projector along with foot release button located in the front just under the lens make it so easy to perform adjustments without have to move the projector at all. Those days of propping the projector up on a book or two to get it aligned correctly with the screen are finally gone! The sound quality was really good - obviously you would need to connect speakers/surround sound if you were projecting in a really large space but for the average size meeting room, the sound is perfectly audible. I also was very pleased that there was no lag time between slides making my presentations flow properly and effortlessly. This projector is also lightweight and completely portable. It comes with a really nice, durable carrying case making ideal for on-the-go, quality presentations! All in all, the Epson EX3260 is a solid projector that lives up to it's claims! It is lightweight & easily portable while projecting images with color and brightness that are nothing short of excellent! I have used mine for general power point presentations at work, for projecting graphs and quarterly reports at church council meetings and even used it to put on fun slide show for my parents 50th wedding anniversary. With all of these applications coming off successful and professional, I've really upped my game in the presentation field! I am going to use it this Summer to show some outdoor movies for the neighborhood which should be really exciting! And while there are some advanced features available that I haven't even mentioned yet, like setting up a wireless connection or projecting from multiple computers, I intend to explore every awesome thing this projector is capable of and I'm confident that they will be just as impressive as what I've already seen! And as for the price point, it's less expensive than what I would expect for the impressive quality and comprehensive functionality. The Epson EX3260 is highly deserving of my Five Star rating!

    Bright Readable Picture / Basic Features

    If you are looking for a projector only focused on image projection then this product is for you. However if you wish to have more functionality I would recommend going with the upgraded model. It is easy to tell this is the lower end model as it lacks a lot of features and does not include WiFi adapter for wireless connection. Pros: Includes both HDMI and USB cable Bright High Contrast Color Auto Focus / Lense Protector Easily Menu Navigation Easy Button / Controller Navigation Energy Save System Includes a nice carrying case Cons: Software Epson Projector Management Utility v5.10 Not Included CD only contains manuals No Audio Cable Included Wireless LAN module is not included with the EX3260 Cost of Bulb Replacement Software: The software CD is pretty much a waste and is Epson's way to push you to register the device. Once you insert the CD it prompt to install software however is very misleading. It only installs a manual then pulls up a register online with a 10% off promotion. After completion it then provides a link to their website to install the actual software. I would recommend to save you the time, do not use the CD and go directly to their site to install the software. The software itself is very basic, it provides more of a monitoring option and shows what is being displayed. I found myself just using the Windows 10 MS built in feature to display onto the projector. The features may be limited compared to competitors at same price however the features that are provided work great. The ECO settings allow for customization of light Optimization , sleep mode / sleep timer standby Mode, etc. This is a nice feature to allow it to self power down to save the light bulb. The Power Consumption menu pretty much allows you to enable or disable the ECO settings. The Keystone help correcting the corners of the projected screen to make it even on uneven surfaces. It is a nice option instead of trying to continually move the unit itself. The Color Mode allows you to change between presets: Dynamic / Presentation / Cinema / sRGB / Blackboard. The Menu allows full access to all the features available the system. The additional item is Network which allows you to switch between LAN or wireless setup. However if you do not have a wireless adapter the wireless will allow you to setup however will not work. The Help on the menu helps with network setup however does not go into much more details. Overall this is a nice projector that included a carry case which was a nice touch. However if looking for a more functional device would recommend investing in the higher end model.

    Excellent Projector Features and Price Point

    The Epson EX3260 is a middle of the line business projector cost-wise but not function-wise. It is very bright (3,300 lumens of equal color and white brightness) and has easy to adjust skew, using settings or just using the slider on top – I liked using the slider. The price point for this business projector is very nice, it has comparable brightness, clarity and functionality with projectors costing 5 times as much. It is rugged and very well designed. Although it is billed as a business projector, you can show Youtube videos etc. with very nice quality. It comes with USB, VGA and power cables and also a support bracket for a wireless USB key (but the USB Wireless Key is a $90 option: ELPAP10). Wireless connectivity is not really necessary as you can connect your laptop via HDMI or USB for audio/video. You can also plug in a USB thumb drive with photos and do a slideshow. This unit does have its own internal speaker which is convenient. I purchased and used an HDMI cable and I thought the picture quality was better than with the USB cable. The remote is super useful and I found myself using it more than touching the projector on-board controls including power off/on. It also has a pointer which is an arrow that you move via the remote joystick - I would have preferred a laser pointer; but it is okay. It has an easily extendable foot to allow the user to raise the projector without putting a book or something under the projector. The Quick Guide that comes with the projector is probably all you need to use all the functions. However, there are extensive manuals to download if you like all the details – beautiful documentation, you can download the doc’s using the included CD. You don’t need to install any drivers with Windows 10, it will detect and load the software needed. If you plan to buy the wireless key and use that instead of a cable to make connections, you will need to download and run the Epson iProjection app, which you can find on their website, but not on the provided CD, which I did find a bit of a distraction, the correct Apps should be on the included CD, you can always update the software if needed. You can also focus and zoom via mechanical or via the remote. The image in a bright room is perfect but there are many adjustments to enhance the image for any lighting environment. I ran it from a laptop with USB and HDMI. I thought the HDMI handled short videos better but either is great for Powerpoint presentations. I also tried a USB directly attached to the projector and the photos came up brilliant – very nice. The GUI interface used by selecting ‘Menu’ from the remote or the projector buttons is well thought out and effective. One thing I found especially useful is that you can reset the configuration via selection on the menu. This projector is not DLP it uses the much brighter and better color matching due to its 3LCD technology – wonderful. I really loved this projector which also comes with a great protective carrying case that can store the projector, power cables and also your USB and HDMI cables – really rugged case with carrying strap. I would recommend this projector for home use or business use. It has great technology and functionality.

    Very Good Entry Level Projector

    The Epson EX3260 is a good, entry-level projector that is good for use for on-the-road or ad-hoc presentations. It features a very bright bulb with a good throw distance, and I found the projection was quite good in a bright room with lots of windows & outside light. The device features standard inputs for VGA, HDMI, and component cable (with audio), but no “aux” or headphone-style audio in, so for presentations with sound that you wish to play thru the projector you’ll need to use the HDMI option, which isn’t a problem for most major laptops nowadays. It includes a standard VGA cable as well as a USB cable for connecting to the computer to allow you to use the projector remote to control your presentations. And as with every other device on the market, an HDMI cable is NOT included. There are quick access buttons on the top of the device for controlling top-to-bottom keystone, but has a slider that allows you to control the left-to-right keystone. The slider is really nice, as a quick way to adjust the keystone without the annoying menus, and would have liked to see a top-to-bottom keystone slider, as well since that is usually the keystone adjustment you need to make more often (it’s like they thought backwards on this). You can also control zoom, source, and access the menu with the buttons on the top. This is a watered-down version of the Pro EX7260, so there are menu options & remote options referencing WiFi or wireless projection, which is only available out-of-the-box with the EX7260. To allow for wireless projection with the EX3260 you will need to purchase a separate WiFi card, which looks to run about $100. NOTE: The EX3260 comes with a tray to hold the card in place once installed but doesn’t actually tell you what that part is, so don’t just trash it if you intend on purchasing the WiFi card (I don’t know if the card purchase also includes a tray, so better to be safe & keep the part). The device also includes a nylon padded case with strap to carry the device around with you. The one major limitation remains the SVGA resolution, which is a max of 800x600. With most laptops running in the 1920x1080 range, it makes it a challenge to project much other than a PowerPoint since anything shown in a real screen (for example, projecting Microsoft Project to show a time line) causes the text to look blurry & garbled. Switching your laptop to only project to the projector will dumb the laptop down to 800x600, which then projects clearly and sharply on the screen, but with the obvious limitation of screen size once down to 800x600. Bottom line is that this is a good projector to take with you for onsite or ad-hoc presentations. If you’re looking for something to mount & be able to do more with, you may want to consider a projector with a higher resolution. But if PowerPoint is your primary use for the device, it’s a great choice.

    For a quick, lightweight, bright and simple presentation projector the Epson EX3260 is great for any environment. This 3300 lumen projector punches through just about any room lighting and provides vibrant colors. Multiple input options to include HDMI, VGA, RCA and USB make it simple to connect to a computer or other video devices. The projector automatically corrects keystone when it is tilted but does provide manual vertical and horizontal keystone settings for getting the picture as squared as you want it. It has a built in speaker that is enough to be heard in a small room but does tend to give a vibration sound at high volumes. A carrying case is provided so that you can easily pack it up and take it like a laptop bag. The power down is almost instant compared to some projectors that require a cool down period, so quick to pack back up. This model is only SVGA (800x600) and small text and fine details will be lost, just think original style monitors with large icons and font. It plays video just fine though and presentations with 14+ font still look legible on a 120” screen. The EX3260 also has all the menu settings of the pro model, such as split image and wireless network, but they are not available on this model. However, a separate wireless module can be added to the USB to make it wireless. There is manual focus and zoom option to get the the best size out of your image as well as a digital zoom feature to get up to 4x zoom on the image displayed within the boundaries of the screen. If you need a bright, colorful image on a wall, up to 360” which is more than enough to cover the wall of a two story building, this projector can do it. If you are looking to have high resolution, such as reading this review on your wall, this is not the projector. However, usually as you get higher in resolution you begin lose brightness, so it depends on what you you need.

    The EPSON EX series is a great line of portable office projectors... They're packing the 3LCD technology from EPSON so brightness and colors are excellent and throw is good for a projector in this range. The projector comes with a great carrying case and everything you need to take it on the road with you - Whether its portability for field meetings, or its the roaming projector around the office, its well-equipped and geared up for on-the-go, high quality presentation work. The EX3260 I reviewed also has a slot for optional wireless adapter - This would enable Intel WiDi or Miracast capabilities, enabling wireless projection, so if thats an interesting upgrade to you, it should be considered in this model, as this is the first portable projector I've seen to support WiDi... That said my only complaint is that the native resolution of this device is so low... 1024x768 should be a standard for these projectors, so having a native 800x600 made configuration difficult, and the output a bit sloppy. Its also hard with some business machines to get them to scale properly at that resolution, and the emulated resolutions didn't look that great, but the even color and brightness more than makes up for it. On the sound front the speaker (mono) was clear and loud and would lend itself well to replacing the audio source on full AV presentations where laptop speakers just won't cut it. Some laptops though, like the later MacBook Pros, the HP Spectre series, as well as a few others, would fare just as well as this speaker, and offer some semblance of stereo sound. Case durability seemed to be a strong focus of the product team, as this unit feels solid but not heavy. Its large enough that its usefulness goes beyond its portable use case, but only for limited scenarios due to the resolution limits above. All in all an adequate portable rig for the price, and EPSONs quality, peripheral and bulb availability, as well as sleek styling, position this as a good choice.

    Great Portable Projector for Business Use

    Posted
    JimN

    This is a review for the Epson EX3260 Projector that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review. This projector is really great for those who need to have a presentation projector while traveling. It's resolution (800x600) is adequate for spreadsheets and powerpoints. You can also watch videos too. I tried playing some games with it but in my opinion the resolution is too low for any real gaming. For my purposes, this projector has been excellent. It has 3300 lumen brightness which is perfect for office use. It's very portable and even comes with a carrying bag. The projector was a quick off function so its able to instantly turn off when you're done with it and it doesn't need to keep the bulb fan running for several minutes after you turn it off like other projectors. It also comes with everything you need to get started using it. USB cable, VGA cable, remote control w/batteries, and power cable. With the included remote control the projector is very easy to use. You can make adjustments using the remote or directly on the projector itself. I really like that it has USB Plug 'n Play. With that I can plug in a computer via USB then install drivers that are available directly from the projector. After that, my laptop instantly recognises the projector and begins to extend my desktop to it. They've made it really easy, no need for any install CDs. One thing that took me awhile to figure out was that wireless LAN connection is optional and you must buy an additional module to take advantage of this connection method. Picture quality is very good also. The picture is vibrant and the contrast is very good. I also appreciate that the bulb life is so great also. Its up to 10,000 hours while on ECO mode. Gives me some peace of mind that I'll be able to use it for a long time. I would definently recommend this projector!

    Epson Projector that doesn’t disappoint

    Posted
    Kariel

    This was my first time ever owning or using a projector. I was very excited to test out this product because I own my own company and periodically we do meetings where I need to display information for my team and I to review and discuss. I also love to use projectors for personal use at home, whenever we have gatherings. This projector is a great way to be able to view pictures of past and recent memories, trips, parties, or whatever other information you want to share with family. The picture and quality that this projector exudes was impressive. It’s amazing that such a relatively small and lightweight device can display such clear, viewable, quality material. When searching for a projector to purchase, it was important to find one that was portable to be able to travel with, since I travel a lot for work and sometimes have to bring along with me. Another amazing thing that I was really impressed by, was how convenient it was to view on any surface. I currently don’t own a projector screen so I utilized a few different services to test out this product on. We used to this projector on our white walls, a bedroom sheet, and even on a white poster board! All in all, with using these three different surfaces, I had success and I was highly impressed by the clarity and quality that the projector exuded. We watched movies during the daytime and that still didn’t have any negative effect on this powerful projector! During our business meeting, we could clearly hear the volume through the speaker, and the picture was visible in our large conference room. I only have positive remarks and comments for this product. If you are looking to purchase a well-made projector, this is definitely the one! “This is a review for the Epson EX3260 Projector that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review."

    I do quite a bit of presenting with my job - and have access to a variety of projectors and displays to use. It is fitting to compare this with the others. Right off the top, I must admit I love the fact that it comes with a bag and it easy to carry! It ranks higher than many of the older projectors I use, and it's smaller size would make my choice to drag around with me when I go mobile! For the price (as it's the lower end of the pricing spectrum for projectors), this unit throws a nice bright image. Image quality and coloring are very good - just have a nice bright white wall or screen to use it with. It's not BluRay quality, but perfect for presentations or graphics (I like to test with detailed Visio Network diagrams). There are lots of input as pictured - the full size HDMI is a welcome option. It does have a speaker, but it's a projector speaker. If you have a booming presentation with embedded audio, hook that up to the room speaker system to get a more "full" effect. Overall - very happy with the project. Whether it's displaying your child's Graduation pictures in your garage, projecting to your church up to 350 feet away, or showing a presentation, demo, etc to your business - this unit is portable, fairly quiet and super easy to setup.

    This is the second Epson projector I've put into use in my office. We use it for a variety of individual and group settings including reviewing CAD drawings, PDFs and digital slideshow presentations. The Epson EX3260 offers SVGA-quality images, including a 16:9 ratio not stated in the specs. The images are good, though (not surprisingly) static images will pixelate at around 12' projection distances and beyond. We tested in dark, windowless rooms and a daytime space with two large windows diagonally located. The latter environment is not at all ideal (again, no surprise here) but the Epson does offer enough brightness and contrast setting range to render the images legible. We were pleased to see a range of connections: VGA, Composite Video/Audio (RCA), USB (audio and video!), HDMI and Wireless LAN! It's super-easy to set-up thanks to controls on both the unit and remote control. Tweaks are easy with a series of on-screen menus. The included speaker is loud enough for most offices and small-medium size conference rooms. Ours was tested in a 12x18 space and received no complaints. Finally, someone got wise and included a nice black nylon carring bag with a strap. Good touch.

    Great Projector

    This is my second Epson Projector in the EX family (I also have the EX3240). We use projectors constantly in a large classroom like setting. The projector provides a bright clear, clean display even in a partially lit room. The image quality is decent with a SVGA res of 800x600. The unit is portable, lightweight, and as I found out with this unit, can withstand a rough environment, thanks to the padded carry case that is included. Multiple sources can be used so that the projector can display split screens. We even uploaded our logo in the projectors memory so that it can be shown whenever the unit is powered up and between videos. The EX3260 has multiple inputs ensuring that whatever you want to project can be projected, however, the unit has no audio out jack and the built in speaker is sub-par making it difficult to provide a full enriching experience. It has a built in pointer, great transitions and zoom features which help during a presentation. I encourage you to utilize the ECO power consumption mode as it saves power, bulb life, and the difference is barely noticeable. This is a great projector for everyday use, has great brightness, easy to use, I would have given it more stars but the lack of an audio jack and its sub-par built in speaker make it difficult for me to do so. I recommend this unit and think it is definitely suitable for smaller to mid size rooms. This is a review for the Epson EX3260 Projector that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.

    Excellent Projector for Large Rooms

    The Epson EX-3260 projector is an excellent choice for presentations in large rooms. While it is a basic projector it excels at what it's supposed to, projecting a bright, clean and crisp image on the screen. I tested the projector in a well-lit large room. The room can accommodate about 200 people and has a fair amount of natural light. In the "Normal" (vs. ECO) mode, the projected image was clear and bright with decent contrast. One simple feature that I really like and have not seen before is a mechanical SIDE keystone lever that is located on the top just behind the lens. Just like a top or bottom keystone, this side keystone lever adjusts the image quickly and easily when the projector is not perfectly aligned with the screen. Rather than having to physically move the projector itself, this side keystone lever can compensate for a little misalignment which I found to be far easier than messing with the projector itself. Setup was simple and easy. I was skeptical of how well the USB connection would work and if other software would be necessary. But I simply plugged in the projector and my Windows 10 PC installed the necessary drivers and that was it. The remote works well and can even advance slide presentations on the computer, if the computer is connected by USB. I was surprised that the remote seemed to be able to control the projector from any angle and it was not necessary to be directly in line with the front or back sensor. The projector does have a small speaker. The sound quality is not very good but hey, this isn't meant for good quality sound. I am very pleased with this projector.

    The Epson - EX3260 SVGA 3LCD Projector - White is a lightweight portable projector that was impressive right after opening the box. I first noticed the cute briefcase that the projector was packed into. It is waterproof and comes with an adjustable shoulder strap. I tried connecting the Epson - EX3260 SVGA 3LCD Projector - White to my Dell laptop with its USB cable and its VGA cable. Once I connected the Epson - EX3260 SVGA 3LCD Projector - White to my Dell laptop, installation began of the Epson USB projector drivers. I could not get the computers’ screen to project with the USB cable. Only the computers cursor arrow was projected. Using the VGA cable gave more positive results. My computer screen was projected completely. All Microsoft Office components (Word, Excel, Power point, etc.) are projected clearly with no bleeding of colors or fuzziness of lines. The instructions are simple to read and after a short period of time, I had basic understanding of how to use the remote control and the projector buttons to operate certain functions. The picture is bright, clear, and very sharp. There are controls to make adjustments to the projected image. There is no bleeding of colors or dragging of images, by use of the projector. As a projector, it does create heat, but I do hear an exhaust fan inside. It has plugs for connecting every mainstream video device, to get a variety of usage from it. The volume is decent enough to fill an average size room. There is also a CD for viewing the full manual and registration of the projector. This is a great addition to any mobile audio/video entertainment setup.

    Great Portable Projector

    This is a review for the Epson EX3260 Projector that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review. As a prequel - I usually deal with home theater projectors being in the custom integration business. This is a review of a test product I received. I got this to be able to take with me, a true portable system. I have a portable screen I can hang with 3M strips and I use this for when I'm on the road. As far as quality goes, this is made for presentation/business presentations, so standard SVGA (800x600) is usually perfect. My screen is 100" and an be blurry if displayed over the entire screen. It also depends on seating. Ideally you should be at minimum of 20 feet (at the 100" size) otherwise it can tend to be pixelated. The projector is bright! When first setting up I had it aimed at my ceiling, next to my light and it was still completely visible, that is quite impressive. Of course a projector always looks better in darkness, so with the lights off, I put it in Eco mode. It's still plenty bright, and you'll get the recommended bulb usage. It has plenty of inputs, HDMI, VGA, Composite, you can hook up just about anything you need to this. The speakers are actually not horrible, of course, a receiver and speakers will always be better. But for it's purposes it is completely usable. It came with is own carrying back which was pretty cool. Overall, I'm extremely satisfied with the projector and it will make a great projector to carry on my business trips.

    Overall i have been impressed with the functionality of this projector. I have used sever different types of projectors for work but i always come back to this brand. Other projectors seems to be 3 or 4 times the size of this unit and put out less. Even thought this projector does not have wireless capability, thats ok. I was not expecting all of the bells and whistles to be built into this product. It is more than sufficient to light up a conference room that seats 20 people with its 3300 lumens. One feature that i loved about this projector is how quiet it is. Other untis i have used at work sound like a rocket taking off. This one "warms up" in 5 seconds and is whisper quiet while running fill speed. Plug ins are standard, 2 usb, hdmi... all you need. Comes with a carrying case to make checking the product in/out a breeze too! All in all this is a very sturdy projector that is whisper quiet and deliver a vivid product even in well lit rooms.

    This is a review for the Epson EX3260 Projector that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review. I have had spent some time using the Epson EX3260 for my small business and general home use. Here are my thoughts regarding this product: It was very quick and easy to unpackage this product. One of the first things I noticed was the multiple video port options offered. There is a VGA computer port, HDMI port, USB square port, and a USB flat port (used for flash drives and cameras). I was able to easily connect my computer to the projector without any issues. I often work with printers and multiple computers so connecting this was a breeze. After connecting, I was blow away by the brightness (3,300 lumens) and clarity of the picture projected. I only used still images when using this product for my business. I used this to present products to some of my clients. Some of the products I show have very small text but the clarity offered by this Epson projector made reading this text not a problem at all. I also used the Epson EX3260 for home use. I connected this to a mobile device(video) and PS4 (gaming). The video quality is good in my opinion for a projector but is a little impractical for gaming. Overall I would highly recommend this product for business and home use. It's versatile connection options and video quality make this one of the best projectors I have ever used.

    This is a review for the Epson EX3260 Projector that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review. Its a nicely built ,portable projector with impressive brightness. it comes with a carrying bag, USB AtoB cable,VGA cable, remote control with batteries and a power cable. Its very easy and quick to setup, I was able to connect to my laptop with the VGA cable and PC with HDMI and I was really impressed with the amazing quality this small thing can project eveb during the day time with some light in the room. I played few videos from youtube. Then I tried playing with the settings and figured out that the WIFI is an option with addon adapter. I swapped the HDMI cable with Amazon fire TV to test some family pictures,videos and games. The projector has an in built speaker which is OK for a small room ,and was able to play the videos for our daughters, and the gaming experience is not that great. The brightness of images is really amazing,they are sharp. The next day I had to do a power point presentation, I used this one instead of my other projector, the remote is very convenient which has a built in pointer I used it for several days at home office for presentations,videos and images. Overall , I like this very much, its a very nice projector with amazing video,sharp images and great presentation quality for the given price.

    The Epson EX3260 is a very good all around projector. I have used it now in a couple of different ways. First, I used it at work for a general presentation and it was very simple to get setup and worked flawlessly while going through my PowerPoint slides. Nothing special about it, the colors were accurate and bright, there was no lag so really no surprises. Next I used it to with my laptop via an HDMI connection and projected it onto a wall. This was a lot of fun. I hadn’t used a project for this before but watching an NBA basketball game on a large wall was excellent. The sound leave a bit to be desired but for a business projector, was perfectly fine. I can work around that by using separate speakers or a sound bar. From a hardware perspective, I do feel that the housing could be just a little thicker to make it feel more stable but then this would add weight. It weighs about 5.5 lbs per the documentation so I assume anything more may make it much less portable. The buttons on the device all feel good and not like they will break easily. They are all flush so won’t get caught on anything. The remote and its buttons are solid with all the same options as the device itself and then some. All around I really like this and using it in various ways. Can’t wait til it’s warm outside and we do some movies for the kids against the garage!

    Simple Review: This is a great projector for doing little presentations and if you have a similar situation needed than it's a great projector for you. UN-Simple Review: I enjoy getting things included in the box. First getting the cables like VGA and even a carrying case are small addons yes... but it shows the company is going a little above and beyond which I appreciate. I wish they provided an HDMI but small issue on an overall great experience so far. Performance is good for low lit rooms so if you cant darken the area or doing it in a store enviroment than it can be a little bit tricky. Though I'm just using this on a wall most of the time with nothing else and it easily takes care of my needs here. One little gripe I have and it's a small one is about the upside down HDMI port. Some of my HDMI cables are those hard to turn kind and this can be annoying when your trying to plug in your laptop or other source to it. If you are hoping to use this as a home theater projector I would say maybe at night you could get away with it. Don't be expecting any crazy screen quality just good quality which is amazing when you compare how small it is. Overall its a great little portable projector for a buisness need or I would even go as far as a little projector in a bedroom.

    Projectors have come a long way in the past 10 years or so. Gone is the day of the hot bulbs with low brightness on high priced heavy machines. The Epson EX3260 exemplifies the trend of smaller, lighter and brighter. This projector has low cost but multiple connectivity options, good colors and excellent brightness. However, the first thing to remember about the Epson EX3260 is it is a solid business class projector, it is not designed for home theater. The projector is perfectly competent for presentations and standard videos - the text is clean, bright and readable under most conditions. It is not high definition and you will definitely notice it if you play movies. You have your choice of 5 connectivity options. Yes, 5. There are ports for HDMI, USB, S-video , component and the standard SVGA connector. There is a 6th option for wireless connectivity but you need to purchase the adapter. Included in the box is a USB cable and VGA cable but no HMDI. I tried all three options and all worked . However, there was some judder when playing video through the USB. I probably would only use that option as back up. There is a speaker but it is very weak an only designed for smaller rooms. At the $450 list price, I consider the Epson EX3260a good value and recommend it.
