Customer feedback:

1. I am a neophyte when it comes to using overhead projectors, but took a chance on this one. I was able to use the USB cord (included) to do a power presentation for a meeting, only 24 hours after the projector arrived. It was truly "plug & play." A few days later, I needed to present a video clip to an audience. When I checked it out, I discovered that in videos, the USB cord was inadequate. So, I tried the "external monitor" cord (also included) and the situation was quickly resolved!
There were no worries about buying the right cords to connect anything, and there was no problem in getting it set up. It works well in a "dimly lit room." It has a nice feature that turns off the light (but not the projector) when the front cover is closed, and it is "instantly cool" after turned off. Besides the cords, it comes with its own carrying case and a cd with a manual to install on your computer.

2. I really like the features and user interface that Epson models use. Pretty easy to use and learn right out of the box, I didn't even look at the manual. This unit does have a USB connection for your computer, but I used the vga cable that came with the unit, and s-video for playing games/dvd's etc. Nice, bright picture, good contrast. Fairly quiet as projectors go. Warms up fast and instant power down. Comes with a remote and various cables (usb, vga, vga to component adaptor).
In my opinion, this is the best VALUE XGA projector for the price. Sure you can find some entry level projectors in the $400 range, but they are native SVGA, not XGA. That makes a big difference when hooking up your computer or video games.
