Epson recently released several new projectors into its PowerLite, BrightLink, and Home Cinema series, and these new releases seemingly have something for everyone. Starting with the only new Home Cinema release, the LS100 features 1920 x 1200 native resolution, which is more than enough for your Full HD Blu-ray Discs, and 4000 lumens of brightness from its laser light source help overcome ambient light in most in-home installations. Its 0.27 to 0.37:1 throw ratio means you can place it very close to your screen or wall (just 15.9 to 30.7") and get image sizes ranging from 70 to 130". HDMI, VGA, and composite video inputs offer your choice of connectivity options for both new and legacy equipment.
The lone new BrightLink model, the 710Ui, also features an ultra-short-throw ratio, 0.22 to 0.37:1, providing 70.4 to 100" images at very close range. Like the LS100, this model also sports 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) resolution and 4000 lumens of brightness from a laser light source, but it differs from the Home Cinema series in that it has interactive features, making it more suitable for use in classrooms and boardrooms. You can interact with it through the two included interactive pens or simply by touch. A traditional remote control is included, as is a wall mount for right-out-of-the-box installation.
Epson expanded its PowerLite series by four: the PowerLite 107 and PowerLite 108 both offer XGA 1024 x 768 resolution for viewing detailed images and data, but the 107 outputs 3500 lumens of brightness while the 108 will handle ambient light a bit better with its 3700 lumens of brightness. The PowerLite 2042 also offers XGA resolution, but considerably higher brightness with a 4400-lumen output. The PowerLite 2142W provides higher resolution at WXGA (1280 x 800), but with slightly less brightness at 4200 lumens.
