The Epson PowerLite 99W is a compact Classroom projector offering a very bright image and features well suited to the typical classroom environment. It projects a very sharp image, with its native 1280 x 800 resolution, and offers picture modes providing good color accuracy. While the PowerLite 99W is not a Pico or Pocket class of projector, it is a compact unit making it easy to move between classrooms (or conference rooms), when it has not been permanently mounted. With a retail price of $749 and a relatively long 5,000 lamp life (in normal mode), it provides an economical solution for the education market. The PowerLite 99W is one model within a series Epson's PowerLite 9x line of classroom projectors that starts with the entry-level model PowerLite 97, which sells for $200 less than the PowerLite 99W reviewed here.
We wish to thank Epson America for sponsoring this year's Best Classroom Projectors report, in which this projector is considered.
