Noise

The Epson PowerLite 1775W is not the quietest projector we've reviewed. In a room with an ambient noise of 37.9 dB, the noise increased to 50.5 dB when the projector is turned on. However, if you operate the projector in "Eco" mode, which dims the lamp, the exhaust fan can calm down a little.

Heat

A lot of heat is kicked out from the Epson PowerLite 1775W, despite its compact size. The intake air measured 76.8 degrees (F) and a whopping 178.2 degrees (F) on the way out. If you reduce the power down to Eco mode, the exhaust cooled to 143.6 degrees (F).

Power Consumption

The Epson PowerLite 1775W requires roughly the same amount of power as similarly priced projectors we've reviewed. You can see in the chart below just how much money you can save by putting the projector in Eco mode.
