The Epson PowerLite 2265U provides a very bright, sharp image with very good out-of-the-box color accuracy when operated in the best available picture mode. It is easy to set up with its 1.6:1 zoom lens plus keystone correction adjustments. With the brightest mode offering 5000+ lumens and more accurate picture modes with 4000+ lumens, this is one bright portable projector. Even the brightest, Dynamic, picture mode should provide acceptable picture quality for most business/education users needing maximum light output when using this projector in a conference room or classroom with moderately bright lighting. The projector's 'Cinema' picture mode produced very good colors with natural skin tones, when using the factory default settings. The projector offers full user accessible adjustments allowing calibration of the color temperature across the grey scale as well as a Color Management System and gamma adjustments to enable a full calibration for those cases where maximum picture quality is needed.
The projector can be either table mounted or ceiling mounted and is small enough to be considered a portable projector that could easily be moved between classrooms or conference rooms, but certainly larger and heavier than some less bright portable models.
This is a WUXGA resolution (1920 x 1200) projector with a 16 x 10 aspect ratio, so it offers the highest resolution you will find in a mainstream business or education projector. The high native resolution combined with good focus across the full image results in business or classroom presentations being displayed with excellent readability and also with photo or native 1080p HD video content looking very sharp.
With a list price of just under $2300, the PowerLite 2265U is more expensive than most portable business/education projectors, including other models sold by Epson. That extra cost gets you substantially more light output, higher resolution and great built-in network support as compared to typical $1000 +/- portable models. The genuine Epson ELPLP95 replacement lamp retails for just $129, which when combined with its very long rated live (5000 hours at full power), should keep maintenance costs for this projector to a minimum. Epson's warranty is among the best in the industry with a rapid replacement program.
Overall a really good, high performance business/education projector offering an extensive feature set. That's why it received our Hot Product Award.
