Mitsubishi ES-100 and EX-100 projector Review

Mitsubishi offers two almost identical portable ColorView DLP projectors designed for the business and education marketplaces; the ES100, a 2000 lumen SVGA resolution 6.5 pound projector, and the EX100 projector, identical, except in that it is higher resolution, with native XGA (1024×768 resolution). As an added bonus, these twin Mitsubishi projectors have a bit more styling than the usual rectangular box we are so used to seeing. They both come with a soft lightly padded carry bag.

Both projectors are rated 2000 lumens in full power mode and 1600 lumens in economy mode. Lamp life is 2000 hours in full power and 3000 in economy.


Neither projector can be considered “entry level” although the pricing on both is only a hundred or two more than lower performing and often feature (and performance) stripped down entry level projectors. Some of those features, include: two computer inputs, and a monitor out, as well as multiple audio inputs and variable audio out (a big feature in the education market). More on that later. In addition, Mitsubishi offers one of the best warranties in the industry.

One of the key things that sets these two apart from much of the competition is the feature set provided, relative to the weight of the projectors. There are plenty of 9 pound models with all the inputs and outputs the Mitsubishi EX100 and ES100 projectors offer, but once you start looking at smaller and lighter models, that changes.
