Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 705HD
Compact & bright projector that produces a lot of light, but lackluster color performance.
The Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 705HD is a small, compact LCD projector that has a clean, simple design. It also comes with a carrying case.
The stand of the 705HD allows for adjustment of the viewing angle by both raising and lowering the front and back of the projector body. It also has standard VESA mounting screws on the bottom which allow for wall or ceiling mounting. No wall/ceiling mount is included.
The 705HD uses a 200 Watt UHE (Ultra High Efficiency) lamp that has a lifespan of up to 4000 or 500 hours (in Normal and Eco modes). It is user replaceable, and a new lamp costs about $200.
Remote Control Tour
The small remote control that comes with the projector allows for full control of the projector, but cannot control other devices
In the Box
As well as the projector, you get:
*Component to VGA adapter
*CD-ROM that includes the full manual as a PDF
Not included are any video or audio cables, which is a bit annoying.
The 705HD is very portable: we weighed the combination of the projector, cables and carrying case at 5.5lbs, and it is a pretty small and compact combination.
The 705HD is a simple projector to set up: plug in, connect the source, power on, select source and you are off. The Auto Keystone feature uses a level in the projector to set the adjustment for the projection angle, and we found that this did an effective job. This can be overridden if required, though, and the keystone can be adjusted to 30 degrees either up or down.
The 705HD has a clean, straightforward look that is more about functionality than aesthetics. But the shiny white case would certainly not look out of place in a modern office filled with shiny laptops and white walls.
