Epson PowerLite 9100i Projector Review


Need razor-sharp resolution without sacrificing performance or portability? With clarity and brightness significantly greater than others in its class, the Epson 9100i (EMP-9100) was designed to eliminate those crucial moments when mistaking a three for an eight could cost you thousands of dollars. By combining 2400 lumens with spectacular 1280 x 1024 resolution, all in a convenient 18.3 lb package, this projector provides sharp, vivd images, at the office or on the go.

You already know Epson for our world class image quality printers. And you’ve probably used our innovative LCD technology in cell phones, PDAs, and camcorders. What you might not know is that we are also the world leader in LCD projector technology. Our three-LCD design delivers dazzling colors across the screen while a 300:1 contrast ratio makes even the finest print easy to read.

With its broader video connectivity, Digital Visual Interface (DVI), and other high performance features, the EPSON Powerlite 9100i gives you the flexibility to conduct any presentation with confidence and convenience. Best of all, it offers exceptional brightness that exceeds other SXGA models comparable in size and weight.
