The name Epson is definitely not new to the Consumer Electronics market, a matter of fact the very first printer I used was made by Epson, you know those dot matrix printers, yeah and it was quite reliable that’s why the minute we received the Epson EX7200 Multimedia Projector we knew it was a good product. Epson just released this Projector in early September to its EX-Series and is targeted at Business-oriented users. We have been playing around with the EX7200 for the past two weeks and we must admit that we are impressed with our findings.
The first thing that really wowed us it how easy it is to setup the EX7200. On the listing of specifications its says USB Plug & Play but didn’t really believe until we plugged on the VGA Cable and connect to a PC in the office and there is was, we could see the computer’s display being projected on the wall without the need to navigate the menu. If you are connecting without the VGA Cable, using its USB port its just as easy. There is also a Another great feature that is targeted at business-users is its capability to project Images and documents directly from any USB Flash Drive or external Hard Drive. Image that you are in a meeting and just before its time to make your presentation, you realize that your notebook is not operating as it should be, just plug your USB Flash Drive in and start your presentation using the infared Remote Control.
The Epson EX7200 is a lightweight projector, and Epson thought about that and added a nice carrying bag so you don’t have to worry about finding an ideal bag to carry the device while traveling, It is just ideal for the traveling Business Man or Small Office uses. Other than viewing Powerpoint documents from a USB storage device, the EX7200 also comes with an HDMI port that allows you to connect a Blu-ray player or high-end DVD player with just one cable, that will certainly boost your multimedia presentation with a high-resolution projection. You can even connect a regular DVD player using its component, composite or S-Video port and that’s what we like, it offers multiple connectivity options.
Other great specs of the Epson EX7200 Multimedia Projector includes its ability to project images ranging from 33-inches up to 320-inches from 3-feet to 35.7-feet away, it has an Instant On and Instant Off feature which allows quick use of the projector without cool down wait time or damage to the lamp. Epson also added their exclusive E-TORL lamp technology which offers a fair enough 5000 hours of lamp life when you operate the projector in economy mode. Probably you didn’t see the specifications that you require from a Business-oriented Projector so you can go to the Epson EX7200 Product Page to see what we have missed or you can even find it for sale on Amazon where it retails for a mere $700.
