Epson has quite an impressive selection of projectors designed for different applicatons. However, sometimes you need one machine to fit all sorts of scenarios. The Epson PowerLite 1776W can be here, there, and pretty much anywhere—because it’s portable.
Made for the mobile warrior, the 1776W is just 3.8 pounds and 1.7 inches tall, making it pretty easy to transport. It’s compact, but can add an HD image to any roompretty easily.
Epson has given the 1776W a native WXGA (1280-by-800) resolution. It can deliver those images from a variety of sources, including Mac and PC computers. Of course, you can go PC-free and/or ditch all of the extra cables, since the unit has wireless 802.11 b/g/n LAN card capabilities. It even has a USB port so you can plug in an external memory device.
Other features include 3,000 lumens of brightness, an HDMI jack, and a pair of USB ports. It has automatic keystone correction for easy placement and the Screen Fit feature to fill the screen size you’re using without having to tweak too much. There are also plenty of convenience features, such as Instant Off, a sleep mode, and a 1.2x optical zoom.
Packing a lamp that promises up to 4,000 hours of playback, Epson is selling the PowerLite 1776W projector now, with an MSRP of $1,099.
