Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 700 Projector Review

The Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 700 is one of the company’s many home theater projectors. This model features 2000 ANSI lumens, a 2000:1 contrast ratio, and WXGA (1280 x 800) resolution. Recently, Chip Chick was able to release her review of this projector. The first thing she noticed was the unbelievable low retail price. The 700 is priced at a very affordable $799. The connection panel and light weight design were both sufficiently adequate for the reviewer and thought that Epson did a nice job with those two aspects. She also liked the inclusion of a USB port and a SD card reader for added portability and easy control. Epson claims that the 700 is one of their brightest home theater models and during the review it lived up to that statement. Even with the lights turned on, the 700 was capable of display a bright and clear image on the screen. The writer really liked the fact that this projector could support HD content. However, while displaying normal video content, the writer noticed visible jaggedness. Another problem that was observed was that the projector would upscale and photos or video that was viewed through the SD card slot. This upscaling effect really deteriorates the image quality. Another slight problem the writer noticed was that the projector produced a lot of noticeable noise, while running, that could be distracting. The final comment the writer made was, “Epson’s 3LCD technology promises sharper and brighter images as well as true-to-life images with vivid color – and this tech really does shine with the PowerLite Home Cinema 700. Overall, the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 700 is not meant to be a high end home theater component but rather an affordable family oriented projector that doesn’t sacrifice on important features or picture quality. Since its pretty portable, you can move it from room to room for different purposes (as long as you dont mount it). So you can easily have the kids use it to play video games in the basement and then later on in the day you can bring it upstairs to show grandma and grandpa photos from your vacation. We imagine that the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 700 would also make a great projector for small businesses to use for presentations.”
