- 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.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.
This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.
It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.
As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.
This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
