Epson Powerlite 76C LCD Projector Review

Epson Powerlite 76C LCD Projector

Want to take your presentations, movies, video games, and television programs to the next level? The Epson PowerLite 76C can take you there. Fill your home, office, or classroom with glorious, larger-than-life images using this affordable 5.7-pound projector. The projector, which features 1024 x 768 (XGA) resolution, delivers 2000 lumens so you can experience all your entertainment with oversized images that surpass even big-screen TVs. On top all that, the small, unobtrusive 76C is designed for whisper-quiet operation, making your experience all the more enjoyable.

Take a closer look at the PowerLite S3's functions.

Epson 3LCD technology ensures accurate color and remarkable saturation, even in well-lit rooms. Plus, specialized color modes mean you get the most vibrant images, whatever the situation, and solid state technology allows the unit to operate without a moving color wheel. Accurate color registration makes your images rainbow-free for crisp, detailed video and still images. Smooth video playback means that onscreen action sequences come alive. And best of all, the 76C makes setup a breeze. The projector also features a time-saving instant off feature--no cooldown is required.

Great for Presentations
Because the S3 is so light, you can take it anywhere, making it ideal for presenters on the go. The instant off feature lets you turn off the projector and unplug it immediately--then you're off to your next presentation. Epson 3LCD technology consistently delivers vibrant images and rich color saturation, plus a deep, extensive gray scale for precision detail--even subtle gradations are visible. There's a USB port for mouse and keyboard connectivity, and a brightness control function is provided for various settings to extend lamp life and provide more cost effective operation. There's even an included soft carry case.

Video Magic
Not just for presenters, the 76C shines in the living room, too. The projector's smooth video playback makes onscreen action come alive. It offers a big-screen performance in 4:3 or 16:9 modes, making it easy to enjoy DVDs or video games with amazing color and detail. It's even HDTV-ready, and it supports supports 480i, 480p, 720p, and 1080i formats. The S3's analog connections include video-RGB, composite video, S-video, component video (via video-RGB), and audio RCA.

Easy Setup and Maintenance
To make setup easier, a source search function automatically displays the connected input source(s) and switches instantly between various sources. With the included full-featured remote control you can easily switch sources, control presentation functions, and more. Plus, the projector has a four-second startup time to avoid presentation delays and reduce pre-presentation jitters. Color-coded cables make connectivity easy for first-time users. Lastly, 30-degree keystone correction offers greater positioning flexibility without any distortion.

Maintaining the 76C is a breeze, too. Conveniently placed lamp and air filters are designed for easy, affordable changes, even when the projector is ceiling-mounted. A front-mounted fan quickly cools the projector, especially in high-altitude locations. The 76C ships with a two-year limited warranty, plus a 90-day lamp warranty for added dependability. During the duration of the two-year limited warranty, the Epson Road Service program provides a replacement projector, typically within 24 hours. The warranty is good in over 45 countries and Epson supplies a toll-free support line.

What's in the Box
PowerLite 76c multimedia projector, power cable, remote control with batteries, computer cable, user's manual on CD-ROM, quick setup poster, and soft carrying case.

Customer Review: Excellent!!

I've been using it for 3 weeks now (12-13 movies), and I am very happy with my choice. Good quality, extremely clear picture and I've been projecting it straight to an off-white wall. Low brightness level has been enough for me.

It's not very light though, but it is portable.

I would highly recommend it.

Customer Review: Excellent Projector

I recently purchased the Epson 76c. I use it for watching DVD's and television. I havent't used it with a computer. The DVD player is connected with an S-video cable and the television (cable box) is connected with RCA cable. I can't give the unit 5 stars because I don't really have any way to compare it with other projectors. The stores around here that sell projectors don't have them on display like the big screen TV's. The advantages of a projector are obvious; small size, large picture, cost ($1,000 vs. $2,000 or more for big screen TV). The projector bulb does need to be replaced every 2000 to 3000 hours at cost of around $300. I have the projector down the basement where it is fairly dark. I originally projected the image on a wall. I experimented with different types of paint and found that flat white is about the best. DO NOT use gloss white paint!

Later I purchased an inexpensive screen that is slightly better than a white wall. The controls on the 76c are very easy to use. Several features that I like on the unit include the two different light settings; the low setting is for dark rooms(like my basement) and the high setting is for well lit rooms. Also, the low setting will extend bulb life. There are two rings on the projector, one for focus and one for image size. If you go with a projector, make sure you get one with XGA resolution(1024 x 768) (like the 76c) which has almost twice the pixels as SVGA (800 x 600).
