PowerLite Home Cinema 705HD 720p 3LCD Projector
Still going strong
I purchased this projector as a Christmas Gift for myself in 2009 and after 3 years it's still going strong. I only had 1 minor issue with it.
After owning it for about 2 or 3 months, the front leveling leg stopped operating correctly. I called Epson and the person I spoke to was very friendly and advised me to ship it back for a replacement. I was told to keep my present Projector until the replacement arrived. Once the replacement arrived (which was shipped next day air) it included a postage paid shipping tag for FedEx.
I have never come close of dealing with a company that stands behind their product half as well as Epson does, and a two year warranty at that!!!! When the day comes where this Projector needs replaced I will look no further than Epson. I have recommended many friends to purchase an Epson Projector if they want to get the most out of their Money.
Thank you once again for your excellent service.

Great Buy! Value & Performance!
I've had this projector for nearly 2 years now, and I think only now will I have to think about getting a new bulb. Granted I don't have a TV subscription and use only for streaming sports, movies and gaming, it still seems to have lasted quite some time. I love this projector. Highly recommended especially for your first one.
Pros: Great color, size, easy to set up, multiple inputs, settings that help control how the screen is set up so you have placement options. Relatively small, pretty lightweight.
Cons: after 1.5 yrs the fan was a bit louder than before. Newer units may have more connectivity options, but this one has enough! When the unit is tilted severely, the sharpness of the picture varies from top to bottom a little, but nearly unnoticeable.

Great picture quality especially when hooked up to my blue ray player. I connect a boxee box and my antenna to this via a HD tuner and picture is great. I have friends who are wowed by my big screen (projected on a wall - 15 x 8)
Main con is no audio out for home theater. You have to change audio output to each device you connect to.

Powerlite Home Cinema 705HD 720p 3LCD projector
After using this projector for 7 month in my classes it failed. I called for technical support and the very next day I got the replacement at the door of my house. For what more can you asks?
Simple, problem solved efficiently. This projector and the service fulfilled all my expectations.

The fan is a little loud, however when you are watching a movie or playing the Wii you would never notice it. The projector does put off a lot of heat also, but it is no more than a typical projector. The picture is GREAT! I have the projector showing a 10' 8" diagonal picture and it looks crystal clear (I am also using a HDMI cable). I have recommended to several people to purchase the 705HD, great projector for the money.

My experience with 705HD Projector
My first experience with the projector was puzzling. I have one lap top with Windows XP and another one with Windows 7 operating system.
I followed the manual but to no avail. Thanks to your friendly and capable tech support everything is now in a working order.

This thing is so awesome... for less than I would spend on a 55" or plus size big screen TV... I've got a picture that fills up an entire white wall in my apartment. I can say I've got my neighbor totally jealous... we watch LA Kings games and its just freaking amazing. It was super easy to set up too... within minutes I had it feeding out the picture from my computer with an HDMI cable... next step with be a surround sound package! I couldn't be any happier with this product... I'm one happy dude.

I've had one for about 2 years now. It has survived a move from Alaska to Hawaii and sees a lot of use. Still on the original bulb too. Perfect device for my setup and use.
The only thing the proector does that bugs me is this little beep noise when it's on. Every 2-3 seconds a low-volume beep comes from it. It doesn't come from the speaker, instead it seems to come from the device itself. Any volume level higher than talking drowns it out however.

Does the job!
I bought this show videos and slides in the Psychology courses I teach and I am very pleased. Set up is easy and quick and the picture is perfect even when I don't have a screen.
