Epson PowerLite 1775W Projector Review
Great performance and wonderful features in an impressively compact package.
The Optoma HD20 costs $100 more (MSRP) than the Epson PowerLite 1775W, but its performance is inconsistent. For people who need to make presentations on the go, the Epson PowerLite 1775W's excellent brightness is the only real factor worth considering. The other major differences were the Optoma's superior color and throw. Still, home theater enthusiasts who can deal with the Epson's limited connectivity and imperfect color temperature might find it a better value that's better able to stand up to ambient light.
