- Bright lamp, long life lamp, low RRP
- Audible fan noise, unresponsive remote control
Excellent portable projector, providing bright images, even at its largest zoom
Price$ 3,699.00 (AUD)
The EMP-765 is Epson's latest portable projector and includes an ultra-bright lamp as well as 802.11g network capabilities, a feature not seen in any other model. Users with sensitive eyes are often dissuaded by DLP enabled projectors, as the rainbow effect, present in some single chip DLP projectors can be very distracting. To counter this, the EMP-765 employs a 3-LCD system, similar to the system found in the Panasonic PT-AE700E
The first thing users will notice is the compact design of the EMP-765. Weighing 1.8 Kg and 276 x 193 x 70 mm, this projector could be easily carried between home and office. Also included is an auto key-stoning feature, which automatically adjusts the width and height properties of the projection to appear straight. Automated features have made this one of the easiest projectors we have ever had to set up. Plug in a video source, select the input and hit the image adjustment option and you're away.
A couple of other unique and impressive features include the onboard 802.11g network card and USB/Media card reader. The wireless network feature allows the projector to connect to other 802.11 devices and project without a computer. This was slightly daunting to set up, but quick read of the manual had us projecting a word document off a remotely connected wireless computer. This can similarly be done for applications such as Microsoft Powerpoint, allowing complete computer free presentations. The remote control has a joystick style mouse interface, which allows presentations to be navigated through the remote. This was actually an annoying feature, as mouse control was very inaccurate which could look clumsy in front of an audience.
The EMP-765 provides excellent colour, resolution and image quality. Images were bright up to the largest zoom image (up to 300"), and this can be attributed to the 2500 ANSI lumen bulb within. Running in the highest intensity mode resulted in the fan running constantly, and at 35 dB, it is quite noticeable. The dull whir of the internal fan could prove to be distracting when watching movies with a near silent soundtrack. Otherwise, the projector provided a pleasant viewing experience, computer input was clear and defined, and the screen-door effect was non existent.
Users looking for a portable projector, capable of projecting in ambient lit conditions should seriously consider the Epson EMP-765. We had a good experience in terms of setting the projector up, and displaying high resolution images. While this does come at an RRP considerably higher than other portable projector's we have reviewed, such as Mitsubishi's XD110U , the additional features make this a suitable compromise.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
I rate the printer as a 5 out of 5 stars as it has been able to fit seamlessly into my busy and mobile lifestyle.
It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.
