The Pro Cinema G6550WU comes in a near white finish. So does the Powerlite Pro version. Relative to its brightness and to having interchangeable lenses, it is relatively small, although there are smaller. Canon's WUX6000 comes to mind as the smallest in this class. This Epson weighs in at only 21.5 pounds with standard zoom lens. The projector measures just under 20 inches wide, and less than 16 inches deep.
The manual zoom lens is center mounted, which, if nothing else, keeps the calculations for having the projector correctly aligned when mounting, just a bit easier.
Large exhausts are located on either side. There's also the button for releasing the interchangeable lenses. There's a front IR sensor for the remote, (and a second one on the top and back), that wraps along those two surfaces.
The standard zoom lens has a tremendous amount of range, as it's a 1.8:1 zoom. For those wanting more information on the six lenses, go to the last page of this review, and click for the data sheet, which does have that lens information. The NL version (without the standard zoom lens), is $400 less.
The lenses are a manual affair, so that you focus by the outer barrel, and there is a ring with tabs for rotating to zoom in and out.
There's a single foot below, in the front, and two screw thread adjustable feet in the rear for a three point stance.
Moving to the top, find the two round lens shift dials, one for vertical, and one for horizontal shift. That pretty much covers it for the top. It's the back, where the rest of the action is.
Looking at the back of the G6550WU, all the inputs and connectors - and there are quite a few of them - are on the left side.
When considering all these inputs, don't forget, there's also a wireless wifi module option for the G6550WU, but it plugs in out of sight, in the filter compartment on the side. The projector also has the ability to use a USB key to quickly set up communication with multiple computers.
Let's check out that control panel first.
