Epson PowerLite 435w Projector: Bottom Line
he Epson PowerLite 435 has proven to be a real performer in the ever growing, short throw class, of projectors. With its 3000 lumen brightness rating and its measured brightness of 2639 lumens, the 435w has more than enough power to handle just about any environment you could present in. Aside from presenting in pure daylight, this projector can handle any situation. The fact that you can mount the projector so close to the screen and achieve a large image make it ideal as a interactive projector. The 435w can also be made interactive with an add-on module as well.
The contrast ratio, being 3000:1, does give it an advantage in terms of video, but it is no match for a dedicated home theater projector. The image quality when showing video from a HDMI source was sharp, distinct and vibrant. Very impressive. It also had an excellent picture when showing small, 10pt or smaller text.
The projector is wireless and can also be networked. The wireless connectivity is only possible via an add-on module that is not included with the projector. However, there is a built-in RJ-45 jack to connect the projector to the network. Also, you will find a RS-232 input for command and control via a serial cable.
