Epson PowerLite S3 Review

Epson PowerLite S3 LCD Projector

Want to take your presentations, movies, video games, and television programs to the next level? The Epson PowerLite S3 can take you there. Fill your home, office, or classroom with glorious, larger-than-life images using this affordable 5.6-pound projector. The projector, which features 800 x 600 (SVGA) resolution, delivers 1600 lumens so you can experience all your entertainment with oversized images that surpass even big-screen TVs.

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 smooth video playback means that onscreen action sequences come alive. And best of all, the PowerLite S3 makes setup a breeze. The projector also features a time-saving instant off feature.

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 also a USB port for mouse and keyboard connectivity, as well as an included soft carry case.

Video Magic
Not just for presenters, the S3 shines in the living room, too. Just switch the projector from presentation mode to theater mode, and suddenly, you've got an amazing home theater. The S3's smooth video playback makes onscreen action come alive. It offers a big-screen performance that makes it easy to enjoy DVDs or video games with amazing color and detail. It's even HDTV-ready, and you can select both traditional and widescreen formats (4:3/16:9). Plus, you can choose the photo mode for viewing digital slideshows. This mode offers black-and-white enhancement levels to view more detail, even in over- and under-exposed images. Finally, game mode enhances darker images, giving you a better gaming experience. The S3's analog connections include video-RGB, composite video, S-video, component video (via video-RGB), and audio RCA.

Easy Setup and Maintenance
With the included full-featured remote control you can easily switch sources, control presentation functions, and more. Plus, the projector has a five-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 S3 is a breeze, too. Conveniently placed lamp and air filters are designed for easy, affordable changes, even when the projector is ceiling-mounted. A built-in high-speed fan quickly cools the projector, especially in high-altitude locations. The S3 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 S3 multimedia Projector, power cable, remote control with batteries, computer cable (mini-D-sub 15pin), user's manual on CD-ROM, quick setup poster, and soft carrying case.

Customer Review: A good home theater projector

I bought the S3 a month or so ago after a lengthy search process. My goal was to get a projector for watching DVDs. The image is bright and clear. 1,600 lumens gives you a good picture even with substantial ambient light. I use a 92" high-gain screen, and a projection distance of around 13'. At that distance, 92" is about as small as the image can get.

I would prefer that the zoom was manual rather than digital, but image quality does not suffer much at all with the DVDs.

Overall, our family is very pleased with this projector.

Customer Review: Better than expected

I have used the S3 FOR 70 HRS. AND FOUND IT WORKS FINE. I have played many DVD with no problems. I play 14 local stations thru a digital receiver and then thru the S3. which makes bad news more acceptable. I recommend this projector.
