    ======= Summary ======= The Epson EX 9220 projector is a great machine~! It offers great image quality for both data and video and even the audio is pretty decent & loud. It is easy to carry around (~6 lbs), easy to setup and use, and offers many connectivity options. High quality all-around. ======= Design & Build-Quality ======= The Epson EX 9220 comes in a shiny black plastic casing with smooth round edges all around. It is sleek-looking and business-like, fitting in appropriately and naturally inside a conference room, a classroom, or even as part of one's living room. All the buttons are black with white-colored lettering that visually pops out for quick identification. It is a solid-looking machine that exudes quality. Weighing around 6 lbs, it is easy enough to hold and carry with just one hand. Epson provides a carrying case with one large pouch for the cables and other accessories. The case is not very well-padded and is of just mediocre quality. ======= Connectivity Options & Control ======= All the important connectivity options are present - USB-B, USB-A, HDMI, VGA, and RCA video & audio. Also supported are MHL and Wifi. I connected the projector to my laptop using a HDMI cable and the connection was quickly made and it remained stable. I also added the projector to my home Wifi by going into Settings & typing in the Wifi password using the remote controller. One can use a QR code as well to setup the wireless connection. Afterwards, I connected the projector to my Galaxy S8+ smartphone to use Screen Mirroring and it was seamless and smooth. There are several ways to control the projector - via the buttons on top of the projector, via the included remote control, and via the Epson iProjection app. Out of the three options, I liked using the remote controller the best. The button layout is intuitive and was easy to find what I was looking for. The buttons are soft and rubbery and feels just like your ordinary TV remote controller. ======= Image Quality for Data ======= With 3600 Lumens for white brightness and 1080P clarity, all the graphics and texts came out superbly. With PowerPoint projected on a white wall and with all the lights on inside the room, the slides came out very crisp, sharp, and detailed. The images and letters did not wash out or fade away. Even at the edges, everything was vibrant and clear. Zooming in multiple times (manual optical zoom, not digital) cannot make the Epson EX 9220 falter either - the letters retained their clarity and there were no blurriness or distortion. I was especially impressed with the whites (please see picture). The white came out so white and clean. This is a seriously good presentation machine. ======= Image Quality for Video ======= When testing for video, I played 1080P music videos from YouTube (Wifi screen mirroring from my phone) as well as a movie I had locally saved on my laptop (HDMI cable). In both cases, the video was crisp, finely detailed, and the color saturation and range were excellent. The colors were rich, well-saturated, and vibrant. The blacks came out really nicely as well. Although the EX 9220 is not marketed for home theater, it still offers great quality for video media playback. Within Settings, image quality can be further fine-tuned for one's specific preference and taste. There are numerous options such as Color Mode (Presentation, Dynamic, Cinema, sRGB, and Blackboard), Brightness, Contrast, Color Saturation, Tint, Sharpness, Color Temperature, Image Enhancement (noise reduction), and Auto Iris (automatic image optimization based on brightness of projected content). The 2-watt speaker was surprisingly pretty good as well. The vocals came through loud and clear and the musical dynamic range was pretty decent. Of course the bass is weak but that is expected from a projector. What is important is that even when set at the maximum volume level of 10, the sound didn't distort nor crackle. The sound quality remained good. ======= Software ======= Epson makes available several software tools & utilities for the EX 9220. Either from the CD inside the box or from their website, you can download Windows apps such as the Epson Projector Management Utility and iProjecton for Windows. From the Google or Apple store, you can also download the iProjection app, which can turn your smartphone into a remote controller for the projector as well as making Screen Mirroring possible. All the apps installed fine and made connection to the projector easily and stably. ======= So is it any good? ======= Yes, very good~!! Whether for data and presentations or to play some occassional movies or music videos, the Epson EX 9220 is a very capable and highly competent machine. It is very easy to setup, offers great features, and is very simple and intuitive to use. It's definitely a high-quality product from Epson.

    Epson Pro EX9220 (Model H846A) 1080p Wireless 3LCD Multimedia Projector--Black You Can Present w/Confidence w/This Solid Business Projector--From Boardroom to Conference Room to Classroom FUNCTION While Epson & others make projectors designed for movies/cinema & general home entertainment, this projector is meant primarily, if not exclusively, for business use. It shines when used for PowerPoint presentations & brings life to videos, photos, slides, documents, webpages, charts, diagrams, graphs, graphics, & other images. SETUP Out of the box, we were able to set up the projector & get started very quickly. The included manual/guides on CD were very helpful. OUR USAGE Most of our projector usage doesn’t incl. built-in audio, as we promote discussion, Q&A, & as much interaction as possible during our presentations. Thus, we mostly used the USB cable option vs. HDMI in our initial test runs. Of course, the projector has HDMI & VGA ports, as well as wireless options. We did test the speaker & found it to be very basic. We would choose to run the sound thru our laptop or media player for audio presentations unless presenting in a small room. The PC-free option will be very helpful for us in many cases, allowing us to simply plug in a USB stick & leave the laptop back at the office. While there are many adjustments you can make to get your image just right, we found that we needed only a few tweaks to obtain a sharp display. The projector is lightweight & easy to manage. It also comes w/a padded carry case. SUMMARY Overall, we were impressed w/the remarkably sharp image projection & excellent color quality, even in a semi-lighted environment. The brightness (3,600 lumens) is stunning, & the remote is simple & easy to use. The unit is highly portable; it provides several user-friendly connectivity & mirroring options; & setup is fast & easy. We’d be very comfortable using this projector in a formal boardroom presentation, a classroom environment, or a conference room setting--whether large or small.

    Outstanding Projector For Work/Road

    I am going to start off this review by stating that I have a TON of experience with LCD projectors. I used them in the Air Force (actually I used both projectors and old slide projectors), I used them in may days working in sales, I used them every day during my years as a high school teacher, and I use them every week at least with my job as an educator at a presidential library. So, I have seen the gamut from dim little projectors that were hard to see even in a completely dark room to ones that would probably scorch your retina if you were to look directly into the lens. That being said, it also made me cocky enough to think that I could just do everything right out of the box without looking at any of the literature and while that is 90% true, I found out that I was missing out on some really cool features which I will detail a little later in this review. Previous to using the EX 9220, we used the EX1751 which is a great little projector and is incredibly portable. It will remain our go-to for when we have to hop on a plane and travel to a conference. The EX 9220 is going to be our mainstay for here at the Library as well as on the road in the local area. The extra thousand lumens (3600) and the increased resolution (1920x1200 v. 1024x768) and the native 16:10 resolution v. 4:3 makes this such an easy projector to use straight out of the box. My work laptop is a Samsung Notebook 9 Pro and when I plugged in the HDMI cable and fired up the projector, I saw the nicest display I have seen from a portable projector (we have some brand new beasts in our auditorium that are phenomenal but they are the size of a suitcase). I tried projecting with both the lights at full blast and ranges all the way down to complete darkness and the Epson EX9220 did an outstanding job holding up against some pretty harsh light in one of our classrooms. It was really cool to see the projector automatically take care of the vertical keystone effect within seconds of being turned on and taking care of horizontal keystone is easy with buttons that are right there on top of the machine so you don't have to dig into any menus (always a plus - I prefer more buttons rather than menus). When you do have to dig into menus, the Epson has a very nice home screen and easy to understand advanced menus. It is easy to do everything with either the controls on the projector or even better, the remote. It was incredibly easy to switch inputs, color settings, resolution, screen ratios, and even the lan settings. But this is where I could have used even just a casual glance at the documentation. The software you need for your mobile devices and your laptop if you want to project wirelessly from either needs to be set up in advance and you need to make sure that you have the right one (that is where I screwed up). I did casual searches in the app store on my iPhone and found the Epson iProjection app rather easy. Once I figured out that you have two options for linking your device and making sure that I had it set to do the QR code (which is the easiest), it was a breeze to start projecting pictures, video, and files from my iPhone. It would seem that it is probably even easier if you have a device that supports Miracast, but Apple doesn't. You can use AirPlay with the projector but you have to plug in an AppleTV to the projector and send it through that, but if you have that available, it is indeed and option. Where the software got a bit confusing is when I was looking for the equivalent of that projection software for my Windows PC. A quick Google search came up with a bunch of options but none of them ended up being the right one. I ended up just going to the Epson website and looking at the support page for the EX9220 and there was the whole packet of software waiting for me, sometimes going straight to the source is just easier than a Google search. That software package installed iProjection ver.2.2 (I didn't think they would call the PC software iProjection), Projection Management ver.5.00, and the USB drive projection software. Once I had those loaded up, turned on the wifi for the projector and put my computer on that network, it was easy as pie since the projector throws up a code and I was instantly in and my desktop popped right up on the screen with zero lag. You also have the ability to have up to four computers all projecting up there so this has some serious workgroup potential (it also gives me some ideas for future lesson presentations...hmmmmmm). I am extremely happy with the Epson EX9220, once I overcame my cockiness and just read the instructions, I was straight within minutes. But if you don't need to do wireless (and to be frank, I probably won't use the wireless all that much but it is nice to have), you can be up and running within seconds of turning this thing on for the first time. Can't ask for any better equipment than that when it just works straight from the box with no hassle. As a final note, this is a work projector. Would it do a good job as an entertainment projector? Perhaps, if you have an extremely dark room, but in a regular home, probably not so much. You would be better served with one of the projectors the Epson makes specifically for home theaters. If you need this for work or in the field, you will be well served by the Epson EX9220, loaded with features, easy to use, and a decent price.

    When I write a review I typically start by listing out what's good and what's bad in a notepad then go from there. In this case, I started my list and quickly realized I couldn't come up with much of anything for the "bad" column. I mean, there's not much more you could ask for in a projector: Only weighs about 5lbs. Portable. 1920x1200 WUXGA resolution. Two HDMI ports, including one MHL. Comes with carrying case, USB cable, VGA Wireless LAN (Wifi) included. Extremely bright lamp. Seriously, can see well in a lighted room. 10,000+ hours on the lamp before you have to replace it. Can mute both video and sound with a lens cover. Not a DLP projector, so no rainbow effect. Did I mention it's bright? Ok, so there is ONE thing that's bad...the speaker. Just a little 2W mono speaker...it does not sound good. But honestly, it's a bonus, most projectors don't even come with speakers. The first thing you will notice when turning on this projector is how bright the lamp is. The advertised 3600 lumens do not disappoint. I realized after I got the projector that I didn't have an HDMI adapter for either my Windows or Macbook Pro (both only have USB-C) so my only option was the USB connection (through a USB-C to USB-A adapter). Honestly, I didn't think it would work that well but for the most part it worked fine. Both Mac and Windows installed the software without a hitch and was playing both audio and video on the screen in front of me. Now, there was a bit of lag...it would't work well to watch a video but in a pinch it works. As an added benefit you can also control the mouse with the projector's remote. Now I know this is not a projector marketed for cinema or video games, but I wanted to at least test the HDMI connection so I hooked up my PS4 and let the kids play some of their games. Let me say I was pleasantly surprised. It looked fantastic and I even had to take the controller and verify that there was no perceived lag. They had loaded a pinball game which would be very hard to play if there was any lag at all. Finally, I don't even know how it works but the projector showed up in the screen list on my Android tablet and within a few seconds I was screen mirroring wirelessly. There was some slight lag but I would expect that from a wifi connection. Overall, this is a fantastic projector that can be used for almost anything you might need it for!

    Excellent viewing for a sub-$1000 projector

    As a Best Buy Technical Insider Network member, I received the Epson Pro EX9220 for free in exchange for an unbiased review. For a sub-$1,000 projector, this device will literally outshine most other projectors you may have used over the past several years. At 3,500 lumens, for this price point, you're not going to find many projectors that are brighter. In my view, when considering projectors, while dot pitch is certainly important (and can be measured in terms of the highest resolution/ratio that the projector can handle -- in this case, 1080p HD 16:9 format), what is significantly more important is the luminosity, or lumens. This number makes the determination of exactly how much darkness you'd need to fully see a projected image. In this case, the Epson Pro EX9220 has no problems in displaying images/videos in a fully-lit room. As a test, I projected mine in a room in my house where the windows were not covered and the wall wasn't fully white for a background -- and yet there were no issues at all in projecting HD-level images and video. In the dark, the projection simply becomes that much more vivid. This is a "pro" projector, and hence it's technically rated to handle business-type applications; if you're shooting for presentations and other media where fonts must project correctly, this device is definitely for you. However, if you're looking for a device that can handle the latest 1080p-formatted movie, I'd say stick with this device -- it handles anything thrown at it quite easily. In fact, we're now looking at fully replacing our very nice television with this device -- that's how much we enjoyed the projections. Physically, the device is smaller, making it something easy to handle and transport -- it even comes with its own carrying bag. It's light, weighing in at approximately 5 pounds. Its ports include USB-A, USB-B, Left/Right Audio and Video RCA outputs, VGA input, as well as two HDMI inputs. Further, there is a capability of performing "split-screen," where two different inputs can be projected side-by-side. The device is height-adjustable, and contains a handful of anti-keystoning adjusters for optimal projection viewing. Its on-board menu allows for device parameter granularity. There's also a user-replaceable air-intake filter next to the lens housing. The only negative I can see (and I would not reduce the number of stars for this) is that the only cables that come with the device are a USB and VGA cable; you must supply your own HDMI or RCA cables. If you have a source that can feed into the projector and it's up to 1080p, this device should have no issues displaying it, and you should be able to tweak the video to your liking, if factory settings aren't optimal. This is an excellent project for any of your viewing needs.

    A portable projector loaded with many options

    Opening up the box, you will find a lightweight carrying case with strap, the projector unit, power cord, USB cable connector, HDMI cable connector, remote and 2 AA batteries. The non-electronic items include a Quick Setup guide (with handy support telephone numbers for phone consulting) in English and French, CD ROM with links to the manuals and product registration, Declaration of Conformity, Extra Care Road Service (coverage of replacing a nonfunctional unit. This service runs concurrently with the basic warranty. Once the warranty runs out, you can choose continue the same coverage for a fee.), discount offer on Epson products, and a welcoming note. While a carrying case was a nice touch, this one is not particularly durable or able to provide ample support if dropped or knocked around while traveling. Though there is the ability to hook up to the projector via a VGA and audio cable, those cables are not included. I started working on connecting the projecting to my work and home laptops. I was able to quickly hook up one computer using the VGA connector. It took me longer to set up the other computer wirelessly. My first challenge was checking out what was on the CD-ROM without a CD ROM drive on my newer laptop. Luckily, I had an external DVD player that I could hook up. For those of you the same situation, don’t bother. It is just the product registration process and the manuals which can easily be accessed online and downloaded. The wireless LAN module is not needed for the Pro EX9220 since the wireless functionality is built-in in this model. That was very convenient! The first step you need to take to hook up the project wirelessly is to install the Epson iProjection (Windows/Mac) software on the computer from which you will project. After a lot of fruitless searching, I found success at https://epson.com/Support/Projectors/EX-Series/Epson-Pro-EX9220/s/SPT_V11H846020#drivers. Here you can download utilities, apps, admin tools, and manuals. There is a FAQ that is helpful, particularly to solve issues. Additionally, registration and contact information is found here. The manual walked me through the process using the remote for the settings. One all hooked up and turned on, the projector worked like any other (power button, menu, source, keystone, zoom/focus ring, etc.). It projects 3-30 feet and the bulb can last between 6,000-10,000 hours. But there are a TON of additional options: You can also set up a wireless connection using a Quick Wireless Connection USB Key (Windows only). You can connect a digital camera, USB flash drive or USB storage device to the USB-A port and use the PC Free feature. Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) Connectivity allows you to project images and videos from your smart devices (smartphone, tablet, etc) using Miracast technology (called screen mirroring). Plug into HDMI2/MHL port. You can recharge your device while viewing and use the remote to control smart device. The feature to present from a mobile device is available using the iProtection app and a QR code that is displayed on the projector screen. You can set up password protection. While I appreciate many of the wonderful options this projector offers, I can’t say that I understand or will use each one of them. The aspects that I found most valuable for the short period of time that I used it is that it is a versatile projector that is portable (weighs 6 lbs), that projects amazingly clear, bright and vivid images, and that can hook up to my laptop wireless allowing me to position my laptop anywhere in the room. If you are looking for just some of the options listed above, this is the model for you.

    WARNING: HDMI cable needed for MacBookPro OS 10.13

    Posted
    ConsultantPresenter

    This is a review for the Epson Pro EX9220 Wireless Projector that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review. I'm not a tech person but I frequently work in groups and give presentations to groups of 3-20 people at their places of business. This projector is great for my needs. It's lightweight, has good audio, excellent projection quality, and is very modifiable. The remote control is intuitive and easy to use. It even has functions to "Freeze" the display so you can mess around on your computer while the rest of the group looks at whatever they were already looking at. Additionally it has an "A/V Mute" function so if you're you're projecting sensitive information you can quickly hide it simply by pushing a single button and the projector immediately goes dark. It's pretty slick. I'm really looking forward to using this projector for consulting work with non-profits who frequently run on very small budgets. Having a portable, easy-to-use, quality projection set-up will make presentations much more professional and will undoubtedly have a positive impact on my reputation with clients. The challenging part for me was getting the projector set-up. I spent more than 3 hours from start to finish before I was able to successfully project my desktop display. I use a MacBookPro running OS 10.13.4 at time of install. The projector comes with a USB-A to USB-B cable, and a VGA cable and with the standard adaptor for my Mac that plugs into a USB-C port, I tried to use the USB cable. The Epson USB Display installer is not compatible with my OS, and after one failed install attempt I called Epson tech support. I was on the phone with Epson for 36 minutes and we tried multiple times to install/uninstall the USB Display driver to enable use of the USB cable, including changing firewall settings and restarting the computer multiple times. Eventually Epson tech support advised me that it wasn't an Epson software issue and that I should call Apple as it likely had something to do with the settings. I phoned Apple and spoke with a very helpful support person who suggested we do screen sharing. We were on the phone for about 45 minutes, attempting to figure out how to get the USB to work, and ultimately she advised that I try an HDMI/HDMI or HDMI/Thunderbolt cable. So off to the Apple store I went, and luckily the HDMI/HDMI worked on the first try. I was lucky to get a very competent and curious tech support person at Apple who tried everything and had a great attitude and ulitmately suggested something that worked. Overall I'm happy that it works well, but it would've been helpful to know upfront that the USB Display Installer wasn't compatible with my version of MacOS, as there was conflicting information on the Epson Website. More troubling, the Epson support person didn't even mention 32-bit versus 64-bit or even ask about the different cables. It would've saved me a lot of time and frustration had the projector had an HDMI/HDMI cable. Another solution would be to include that troubleshooting tip on the Quick Setup guide so I (non tech-savvy person) would know to bypass the USB display installer if it was a problem and go straight to an alternate cable.

    Great image quality but only adequate software

    Projectors are something that I usually feel mixed about. While I've tried several in the past, I've usually come to the conclusion that I greatly prefer using TVs or fixed projection systems for presentations, since they'll give a better image and require less tinkering with to get set up. But since not everywhere has these things, I've always had to keep on on hand anyway. The Epson EX9220 is definitely the favorite one I've used so far. It's reasonably lightweight, runs quiet on eco mode, and much to my surprise really does manage to give image and color quality that's near DLP levels despite relying on LCD projection. It's very bright as well, working in full daylight on both screens and walls. But it hasn't exactly managed to convince me that it's better than a wall mounted screen yet. Ultimately, the best and worst thing about this projector might just be the sheer number of features it has. It has ports for just about everything, a variety of color modes to help you project it on a wide array of different surfaces, wireless connectivity, and plenty of options for different setup configurations. And this is great. I particularly like the ability to quickly cast presentations straight off my cell phone if I need to, as that's one less thing I need to carry if I'm already making space for the projector. I was also rather pleased with the expanded 120 lines of vertical resolution - though presenters should probably remember that if they want to make full use of it they'll likely have to design for a 16x10 aspect ratio instead of the 16x9 their laptop most likely has. And keystone correction has been handled with a slider right behind the focus ring which lets you quickly adjust the image to at least roughly match whatever you're showing it on. But the flipside to this is that the user interface you get to control all these features is extremely complicated. Unlike some units where I was able to work out exactly what I needed to do within a few minutes of browsing through the menus, I spent ten minutes feeling my way around the menus trying to find the exact setting I needed to get it to do what I wanted before giving up and going through the online instruction manual. After about a half hour of additional tinkering I had most of it down, but I'll admit that were I tasked with supporting this thing as a member of an IT department, I'd be somewhat concerned about the number of service requests this thing would generate. In the end though, so long as you know that you're buying a feature-rich and complicated projector, I really don't think a poor interface design should send you looking elsewhere. And this would be absolutely fantastic for a permanent mount, where you can fiddle with all the settings once and then never worry about them again. Everything that a data projector should be able to do this thing does very well, even on the reduced power "eco mode." All in all, I'm very happy with its performance.

    Very Easy To Use! Great Picture. Light Weight.

    Super happy with this projector! I often do training sessions in rented spaces. Their equipment is often outdated or complicated to use so I got in the habit of bringing a backup so that there were no “technical difficulties” to embarrass my team. I had purchased a less expensive generic as a back-up and as the adage goes, you get what you pay for. After receiving my Epson 9220, there was no comparison. This Epson was so easy to set up and focus. I had it up and running from the box in less than 15 minutes. Now that I've played around with it, the set-up time from arrival to presentation is less than 5. Literally plug it in, turn it on and focus the screen. The WiFi connection between the projector and my phone/tablet is almost immediate. There is independent sound on the projector but the spaces I use are often large so I have a Bluetooth speaker that I use instead. In a standard classroom-sized room, the on-board speaker would work great. I have yet to test the picture quality limit size but I have used this on a 100” space of a (yellow) wall and a 250” hanging screen to great satisfaction. The picture is bright enough to still be seen in a fully lit room. I have started using this projector as my go-to rather than my back-up and my presentations go so much smoother for it! Because of the sturdy shipping, light-weight product, convenient and PADDED carrying case, quick set-up and 100% portability of this product, I am completely impressed. Plus I get the name of Epson backing this product. This is the Cadillac of projectors with every option available and easy to access. I would have paid full price for this item but this happens to be a review for the Epson EX9220 Portable Projector that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.

    Disclaimer - I am a long-time DLP user and have not been too impressed with LCD projectors when comparing head-to-head in the past. I am happy to say that I am very impressed by this projector. When run against even the best of my school's DLP projectors, it performs very well. I have used DLP almost exclusively because of the great price to feature value, I have found them very hard to beat. It looks like I am going to have to change that stance as this projector comes in at a very good price and has all the features I expect with a couple more added in! The manual horizontal keystone correction is a great feature for quickly setting things up if you can't be directly lined up. I also like the built-in lens cover which can be useful when transporting between classes or meetings. The setup was very easy and in only a few minutes I had it running along side my existing projector and was able to get some very good comparison tests. The brightness compares very well to my 3600 lumen DLP that I use regularly. The contrast is also very comparable with deep blacks and good colors. As I said earlier, I am a bit biased after using both LCD and DLP and having problems with getting the same quality at anywhere near the same price. Epson has generally been a bit overpriced in my opinion, but this projector has finally brought them into line with what I expect and has a great feature set for the price. The included dual HDMI ports are a requirement for me when setting up a classroom so that I can have a Chromecast as well as a HDMI for a laptop or desktop computer. Some of the other features include split-screen mode, ability to control using the Epson iPresentation app and a built-in QR code to connect with mobile and other devices. I'm looking forward to running this for a long-term experience to see how it performs but I have high hopes for it given my initial impression and a few hours use so far. I am looking forward to using the built-in Miracast feature as well as spending more time with some of the other features. I can already think of uses for the split-screen mode! Wireless setup was a bit odd using the remote control to input information, but once done, it was easy to use. I like that there is built-in WiFi instead of having to add an adapter like some other models. I can tell it is going to take some time to figure out all the ways the features can be used! I can easily recommend this for anyone looking for an LCD projector with a great set of features and a lightweight case with strap and room for cables and the remote inside.

    PREFACE: The Epson Pro EX9220 is designed to give your presentations the WINNING EDGE with the highest color & white brightness levels & tack sharp images. Surprisingly, with all of the input choices, mirror capability & a loaded remote, I simply plugged in an HDMI cable, turned on my source, slid the projector lens door open & pressed Power. In about 20 seconds, the Pro 9220 had automatically selected my input & there was a sunning image with sound! This is the easiest projector to set up I have ever used! LIKES: 1- BRIGHT Color & White Images show high contrast, even in a brightly lit room!! 3,600 rated lumens color & white brightness. 2- Razor Sharp images with extraordinary detail: 1080p+ WUXGA resolution: (1920 x 1200) offers 4.5x more resolution than SVGA for full HD 1080p content. 3- Near silent operation (37dB in Normal Power Consumption mode; 28dB in ECO mode). 4- Built-in air filter with onboard indicator when it needs cleaning. 5- Lightweight, easy to carry: 6.17 #. 6- Deeply padded carry bag is included with a shoulder strap! 7- Very attractive design. This projector sets you apart from other presenters with it's professional appearance, even when it is turned off. 8- Built-in 2 Watt Monaural Speaker. 9- A myriad of inputs: USB / 2 HDMI jacks / VGA Video Port / Wireless / Mirror Input / Video / Audio R / L jacks. 10- Wireless Screen Mirroring: using Miracast (Android / windows 8.1+; iOS requires airplay). 11- Wireless - built to project from your tablet, laptop, or smartphone with no wires, enabling full mobility form the presenter! 12- Small Modern Profile: 11.9" W x 9.8" D x 3.4" H. 13- Remote operates with a 20 foot range. DISLIKES 1- The built-in speaker is small & naturally has a very limited frequency response. An external speaker jack would enable connection to a sound system in an auditorium. If your input source has an external audio jack, that is the best way to port sound to an external amplified speaker system. Unfortunately, my input source (Amazon Fire TV) does NOT have an external audio output & I am stuck with the limited audio from the projector speaker. 2- Adding Bluetooth would also enable porting sound to external speakers. CONCLUSION: The Epson Pro EX9220 Projector can transform your mundane submission to a professional presentation with stunning visual appeal that will long be remembered. It earns my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!

    Very impressed with the Projector

    This my review of the Epson Pro EX9220 Wireless multimedia projector. The projector arrived in a plain brown, efficiently packaged box. My box had a significant sized dent, on the bottom of the box, underneath the area where the word "LENS" is located. The dent had me a little worried. I found the projector safely packed and undamaged in the included padded case. The included padded case is just “okay”. It is not of the best quality, but it is usable. It’s probably better suited as a storage bag or dust cover. Also, included in the box was a quick setup guide, a CD disk, a remote control with batteries, a power cord, a usb a/b cable, and a VGA cable. No HDMI cable! That was disappointing. An HDMI cable, should be the one cable that is included. The build quality of the Epson Pro EX9220 projector is very good! It has a cool carbon fiber look. The plastic feels sturdy and of good quality. I connected the Projector to a newer Dell Latitude laptop, with my own HDMI cable. The Projector by default is set to automatically find an input source. It found the laptop signal and displayed it in seconds. All the buttons on the top of the projector are large and easy to read. The remote has a nice layout. The entire projector is very intuitive to use. It has 5 pre-programed color modes. The picture is outstanding! Great colors! The built-in speaker has decent sound quality and gets moderately loud. Unfortunately, I do not have a cd drive bay, and had to copy over the CD disk content to my laptop, to install the optional software. It would be nice to get rid of the CD disk and supply the optional software and registration program on a USB drive. I installed the optional "USB display" drivers and the "iprojection" software. The "iprojection" software allows you to connect to the Epson Pro EX9220 Wireless LAN. It is very cool! It displayed content very smoothly and with very little lag. That was testing it with the “Matrix RELOADED - Chateau Fight Scene”. This projector is aptly named - multimedia projector. I could connect both video and audio to the Epson Pro EX9220 using USB, HDMI, and Wireless LAN. There is also a phone app and a quick connect QR Code. It has one button split screen, zoom, freeze, and A/V mute. Overall, I am very impressed with the Projector. 4 1/2 stars. This is a review for the Epson Pro EX9220 Wireless Projector that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.

    It's a very nice projector. I like the sleek Piano Black like color. The Projector has an incredible picture quality to it and it's incredibly bright and crisp. I was able to test it through various tasks. The 1920x1200 Resolution is quite nice and makes using it for work related tasks helpful with that little bit of added vertical real-estate. I tested it by using it with an iMac using Thunderbolt to HDMI and it worked fine for me without issue. It was nice to be able to use it for work as another added display. I also tested it with watching some video's through Netflix, and also with a bit of Gaming through a PS4. The projector performed admirably with both. I didn't put a lot of time in optimizing the picture for these tests and just used the preset for Dynamic through the PS4, and presentation was perfect for work. It does have a few quirks, and one of those is the fan. It can get incredibly loud when the projector gets warm and is used for long periods. In a much larger room, and from a further distance it likely will not be a problem. My other issue with it is using it closer to a wall/screen it does not project very wide at close range. If I had to estimate at about 3-4 back, you'd end up with the equivalent of a 32-36" display. From further back of course, having a 10-15' view is not a problem from much further back. I do wish it was a bit quieter, but in a cooler room, I very much doubt you will hear it get very loud. Sadly the few days I was able to test, they were much warmer days and my AC couldn't keep up with the heat those days. Honestly for the price, and the performance, you're going to be incredibly pleased with it. I can't wait to be able to use it a lot more.

    Excellent Compact Projector

    “This is a review for the Epson Pro EX9220 Wireless Projector that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review." The Epson EX9200 Pro WUXGA 3LCD Projector is excellent! Very high resolution and very good color rendition, high resolution for showing images with fine detail. I can project large and detailed design drawings to review for projects I am working on. This projector is light enough to carry easily and bright enough for a small to midsize room. This is especially important as I need to be able to set up a meeting anywhere on the road and this projector is perfect for pop up meetings at Job sites or board room. The compact size allows me to take it with me to setup design reviews and construction drawing markups fast. Gone are the days of the rainbow effect that really gave projectors a bad name. The three-chip LCD technology has really improved picture quality tenfold. Another cool feature is that when I am done with my presentation I can just turn it off and unplug it immediately without needing to wait for a cool down cycle like older projectors. The Setup is pretty much standard, with a manual focus and manual 1.2x zoom. Image inputs are all on the back panel, with two HDMI ports, one VGA port for a computer or component video, and a composite video port. In addition, one of the HDMI ports supports MHL, and there's a USB Type A port for reading files directly from a USB memory key and a USB Type B port for both direct USB display and controlling the computer mouse from the projector remote. There's also built-in Wi-Fi for wireless connections. The price for this compact is very reasonable for the quality of picture produced. I highly recommend this projector.

    Not exactly user-friendly

    As a projector, this works great, but I didn't really want this model for the quality of the picture; I wanted to take advantage of the wireless capabilities. Those work as well, but they aren't what I would call user-friendly. First of all, to connect to a wireless network, you have to manually enter the network SSID through an onscreen keyboard. That means manually selecting each letter with the up, down, left, and right arrows on the remote, which creates numerous opportunities for error. How hard would it be to list available networks? Evidently too hard for the guys who programmed this machine. Secondly, you can project content from your iPhone or iPad, but only through the associated app. That app will pull in content from cloud services like Dropbox (Good!), but it won't play Keynote presentations (Bad!). Oh, and you can also do screen mirroring, but only on devices that support Miracast (sorry Apple fans). There is a very nifty feature that lets the app find the projector by looking at a QR code that the projector displays, so once you've got it on the network, the rest of the pairing goes quickly. However, getting it on the network in the first place is so clunky, that doesn't feel like much relief. So overall, good projector, but if you're buying it for the wireless capabilities, be prepared for a few technical hurdles.

    I have had this for a few days now and I am pretty impressed with the overall performance of this projector. It is lightweight, ultra portable and has some great features built into it. It comes with the projector, VGA cable, USB Cable, remote control and a bag to store it all in. This thing has a built in wireless module that you can use to broadcast media from your tablet, phone or computer. It works will in rooms that are well lit as well as dark rooms because of the 3600 lumens it projects. This projector is ideal for use with presentations, but can be used for video playback, but you will experience some lag in the playback. I played a PowerPoint presentation that had a video that I downloaded from YouTube and there was a noticeable lag in the playback. There are manual adjustments to sharpen and widen the picture, automatic and manual keystone correction and great 1080p resolution. I was also happy to see that it worked well my MacBook. The instructions tell you how to make this operable on a Mac and it was pretty simple. It also has a speaker built in to the unit, which really doesn't play audio all that loud, but you do have the option of using an HDMI cable or audio cables to output the sound to some speakers or stereo receiver. All in all, this is a very good projector and I would certainly recommend it.

    I chose this projector over others because of the higher color and white lumens. I wanted to be able to watch in lighted rooms without much loss in picture quality. This projector did not disappoint. I was watching TV via SlingBox/Chromecast on my medium grey wall in my kitchen with about a 100" diagonal screen around 5pm while making dinner. My kitchen is on the west side of the house, and I have a 6' slider glass door that was open, so there was plenty of sunlight coming in, and the picture looked phenomenal. I'm really looking forward to taking this projector camping and watching movies on the side of my 30' camper. The kids are going to love it. I could also see myself projecting onto my garage door and watching football or hockey while having a bonfire and a refreshing beverage. A couple of things to note: There is no "audio out" on this projector. I bought an HDMI audio extractor/splitter to allow me to connect to an AUX port on a portable speaker, this was a game changer as far as sound goes, because the speaker on the projector is not that good. The fan is louder than I expected or care for, but there is an option to put the projector into "ECO" mode and then you can barely hear the fan, but you take a performance hit on brightness. If you use an audio splitter like I mentioned earlier, you could easily overpower the fan noise with a portable speaker.

    The Epson EX9220 wireless projector performs exceptionally and is perfect for any office, meeting or individual with data projection needs. This projector also works well for projecting video and high quality graphics however it’s not quite a home cinema projector, make sure to get one of those if that is what you are looking for. The image quality is sharp and the colors are vivid with a high range of color and accuracy. I’ve projected a variety of documents, photos and video from both my laptop and cellphone and have not been disappointed. You do have to download the Epson iProjection app or have Miracast capability to project wirelessly and do screen mirroring but everything worked well for me after a little bit of reading and set-up. The lamp is very bright and the picture can be seen well with the lights on in the room. The built-in speakers sound good but I actually ended up linking to a nice external bluetooth speaker from my device for a couple projects that required a better sound quality. The projector comes with a couple different connection cables, the remote and a lightweight carrying bag for portability. The projector, cables and remote all fit in the provided bag. The projector itself is also lightweight, about 6 lbs, and is easily moved and positioned for an impromptu meeting in a room with no projector. I definitely recommend this projector to anyone who needs a new, high quality, data projector with a variety of connection capabilities.

    The Epson Pro EX9220 1080p Wireless 3LCD Projector is a lightweight, easy to use, and easy to carry projector. Operating at 3600 lumens, this projector can work really well even in rooms that are fully lit. Even though this projector is made for business use and can handle such functions with extreme ease, this projector can also be used in an entertainment/home setting for personal use. Setting up the projector for use is simple and straightforward. Even from the first moment that you unbox the projector, you can be up and running in just a few minutes. As long as you have all the necessary cables to connect the projector to your computer or a multimedia device. You can also connect to the projector via Wi-Fi when connected to the same wireless network and it works with the same quality that you would expect when physically connected to the projector. One of the other features that this projector has that is quite uncommon in most other projectors is the fact that it has a built-in speaker. Now granted, the built-in speaker isn't going to handle all of your audio needs but it is great to have in a pinch and would only recommend using the speaker in a small room or when people are near the projector. If the projector is hanging from the ceiling, it would be best to have some other means of providing the audio for your presentation or multimedia needs.

    I have always wanted a projector so I finally got the Epson Pro EX9220. I have to say for the price point I am blown away at the quality and features this projector offers. I wanted a projector that was portable so I could move around at home, and office locations. Setup was an absolute snap and I was up in running in minutes. I used it on both a Projection screen and a wall at office, and both had crisp bright video footage. This Projector has both dual HDMI and USB ports so it makes for easy setup, and the USB is great to connect a portable hard drive. Also the Epson Pro EX9220 has a feature called Multicast which allows for you to cast photos easily from a device. The EX9220 has 3600 lumens and 1920x1080 resolution and its bright and very clear. This projector is perfect for making presentations at office and the compact size makes it easy to move around. Also has a built in speaker which is fine for an office room when doing presentations. The fan noise is acceptable and much quieter than others I have tried in the past. Overall I am very impressed, and again for the price point its an amzing value!! “This is a review for the Epson Pro EX9220 Wireless Projector that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review."
