Epson BrightLink 436Wi Projector: Color
Epson has never had a problem with image quality and nothing has changed with the Epson 436Wi. Being an LCD projector, it naturally reproduces color very accurately. Reds look truly red, and yellows pop without the muddy look that a DLP projector often produces. That is not say DLP projectors have come a long way, but out of the box, LCD generally reproduce color more accurately.
Epson has made colors more brilliant by using a light engine that is able to push light output for color to its rated 3000 lumens. This however was not tested in this review, so I can't claim with any measurements the validity of that statement. Visually, the colors are excellent.
Epson BrightLink 436Wi Projector: Video Performance
The Epson BrightLink 436Wi was not designed to compete with home theater projectors, but the image quality is very nice. The projector is definitely well suited to be used as a tool in a classroom environment where video training might be what the projector is used for most often. Its ability to handle high definition signals, both component video or, HDMI, are not exactly unique, but the video quality was sharp and the contrast ratio of 3000:1 allowed it to produce some pretty decent black levels. If you were to show some darker films, this projector can handle the job, and provide enough shadow detail.
