5Easy to use, great picture, nice size. As a novice in projectors, this is easy and very nice
By Ross
Got the projector out of the box, plugged it in to the wall, turned it on and hooked it up to my computer. Within a ten minutes of receiving it I had YouTube 15 ft wide on my wall.

Watched the Warriors/Spurs game on it with an HD Stream last night. It was beautiful.

Highly recommend this product based only on the first few days of owning it.

5The Epson VS240 vs Epson EX3240
By Bob Feeser
VS is value series of Epson projectors. The EX series has a wider array of choices reaching into the additional models that give you a true 1080p or greater image. This new VS240 gives you 3000 color lumens, and 3000 lumens of white brightness. The comparable projector in the EX series gives you 3200 in each of those areas, a negligible difference. However the EX 3240 costs about 25% more than the VS value series. The 800 x 600 resolution is the same, and it has all of the same inputs. They are both SVGA 3LCD projectors. Like I said the only difference I can see is the additional 200 lumens of light.

The difference between 3000 lumens and only 800 lumens in some of the economy projectors is pretty great, but an only 200 lumens difference out of 3000, nah not a big deal. The EX does weigh 8.8 pounds and the VS only weighs 8.0 pounds. They both measure exactly 14.5 x 13.8 x 6.2 so the difference in weight although marginal can’t be due to size. Looks to me they are both in the same exact white plastic case, same exact button controls/features on top, with the only difference is that the VS has a black front name plate panel and the EX is white. Since the VS does not include a carrying case, and the EX 3240 does, I have to conclude that is the 8 tenth of a pound difference between the two. So as far as I can tell they are the same projector with a minor difference in lumens. However with the difference in lumens, at least some of the components have to be different.

A few notes about quality of picture etc. 800 x 600 resolution is good for projecting movies on the wall especially in darker rooms, but if you are planning to use this to surf the web, the resolution is such that smaller text like those found on desktop icons cannot be easily read. You can zoom in with the remote control making them larger but for computing this is impractical.

If you are using this for a presentation using Power Point in MSFT Office having larger fonts would be fine. Bottom line though is for text reading you should go for one of the high resolution models. Now for watching TV/movies it does a really nice job. However after going from a tube TV to high def LCD’s and LED’s or plasma this is a step back in time to VGA. Even being fed with a 1080p source through an HDMI cable it is still 800 x 600.

The exciting thing is that you can project a huge image on the wall, and that gives you that movie theatre experience. The picture looks like that. The colors are incredibly true and accurate, and it is wonderfully bright.

I haven’t seen it yet but I am really excited about the EX with the 1920 x 1200 resolution model. The Epson Home Cinema 5030UB 1080p is even more exciting but at an exacting price. To think of watching a movie in high def projected onto a drop down 120” screen is very exciting to me. No cluttering up the room with a huge TV and even the screen disappears into a small tube mounted on the ceiling. Check out the current number one seller here at Amazon that currently sells for a little over a hundred dollars. With these Epson EX projectors the 1080p models are twice the money though.

It’s amazing how the price of projectors like all electronics keeps coming down. They are smaller, faster, slicker, and now pretty amazing for such a small amount of money. I purposely didn’t go through all of the features because they are very well covered in detail by the manufacturer on this page. Hope this helps.

5Pretty, pretty, pretty good!
By Joseph
Read reviews and picked Epson. Small, compact, and I hook it up to my Mac and watch movies on my walls. I just ordered a screen for backyard movies and I also ordered Pioneer speakers to hook up to my Mac when I use my projector. The speakers are much better than the audio on the projector, because they are speakers.
The projector shoots out hot air and I felt it blow out and warm up the space next to the projector. On a warm day sitting next to the projector you need a fan. On a cold day the warmth would be welcomed. I like the remote control. The picture is nice. The fan is a tad noisy but you don't notice it unless you are really OCD and fixate on other noises. The picture is nice and you can rotate the picture to get it squared up. For the price I am glad I bought the Epson!
