Epson EX3220: Solid Remote and Enduring Lamps Life

Epson EX3220

The Epson EX3220 has enough resolution (native 800 x 600) to perform the presentations made in classrooms and business meetings or watch some movies at home. It doesn’t heat up quickly and produces a low noise (37dB), which is typical for most projectors like this (considering size, aspect ratio (4:3), and power consumption (283W).

Design

The Epson EX3220 review from an aesthetic standpoint has a glossy panel that gives the body some elegance and protection against fingerprints. Its dimension is 9 x 11.6 x 3.1 inches. The lens is large and behind it, on the top panel, the shift rings are located. They are placed symmetrically to the lens and do not attract attention. After reaching the limiting position, the further attempt to rotate them is accompanied by a characteristic crackle. The device has an HDMI, VGA input, RCA, and USB; moreover, all of them are located on the rear side and work seamlessly.

Features

The Epson EX3220 SVGA 3 LCD projector emits amazing colors, which are more realistic when compared with classic DLP projectors. The images look natural and the color palette doesn’t contain shades of excessive and unrealistic brightness. This model comes with a lamp, which is able to work for 5000 (Normal mode) and 6000 hours (Eco mode), which is a good indicator of efficiency and allows you not to worry about the need to replace the detail. The projector is equipped with the standard universal Epson remote control that comes with many home and office models. It’s solid, thoughtful, and compact. The entire inscriptions are greatly visible on the buttons. The Epson EX3220 manual contains information about setting up, using, and adjusting.

Performance

The EX3220 Android USB thumb drive can be easily hooked up to the device for video, presentations, and photos demonstrating. There’s no rainbow effect. Whether you are watching movies, sports, or animation, you get excellent colors simply due to its high brightness (color and white brightness is 3000 lumens). However, this projector is not designed to work in dark rooms. In the dark, the device produces an image that has noticeably less contrast, compared with classic DLP projectors. Two integrated speakers (2W) are loud enough to enjoy the sound but only on a mid-level loudness, as I hear some cracking sounds while listening to music at maximum volume. It’s better to purchase an amplifier in order to fully enjoy the variety of audio content.
