The Epson Presenter has a lot of great features, but the one that makes you look twice is its built in DVD player. The DVD player is full-featured and even has Dolby Digital and DTS surround sound processors that offer an immersive audio image even if you're just using the 2 built-in 10W speakers. Of course you can use external speakers too.
To complement its sound output capabilities the Presenter has a microphone jack so you can narrate your presentations. (You supply the microphone.)
Epson didn't skimp on the projector either. It boasts 2500 ISO lumens at a 3000:1 contrast ratio. That's enough projection power to fill a medium to large room even if you can't present in movie theater darkness.
Versatility seems to have been the watchword of the Presenter's designers. In addition to 720p and 1080i high definition it can accept video in the NTSC, PAL and SECAM international formats. The power supply is equally versatile. It can accept juice from 100-240VAC at 50/60 Hz.
The Presenter also features auto and manual keystone correction that can extend as far as ±30°.Its two USB inputs allow you to present directly from your computer or to display JPEG photos and listen to MP3 or WMA music. Not only is all this power and versatility available at a surprisingly affordable price, the Presenter is inexpensive to operate. Use it in Eco mode, and the life of Epson's bright and energy-efficient E-TORL lamp extends from a very respectable 4000 hours to a very uncommon 5000 hours. Fan noise drops from a low 33 dB to a whispering 29 dB.
