Is that the only projector u have done a review on, could u recommend something else or is that the best thus far?

temax says:

Very nice review man. Thanks for your time. I am concerned about the fan noise. What is the difference between the ECO-mode and the normal mode with regards fan noise and image quality? Thankss 🙂

Hey Austin, thanks for watching. In our testing, we did not do a great deal of smaller fonts, so can’t comment about how clear it would be with smaller fonts. I can say on larger fonts, like title for a movie or name overlays, it did look great.

Raj Mehta says:

Does it have audio out for sound system and sub-boffer.

Shane Miller says:

Never mind I had to set the settings on my ps3 hell yeah its super clear sound vary loud 2 ans its only on 2 % and the sony volume is on 3.

hotyricky says:

Does it have audio out on the projector?

Kelvin T says:

I’m thinking to connect it with a sound bar. Is there anyway that I could do it wirelessly?

Razex says:

stupid little camera

James009 says:

James009 says:

emtambulance201 says:

Can you mount this to a ceiling upside down?

ojh224200 says:

Able to play 3D movies?

Why not? says:

There is a smaller one called the cyclops mini projector it’s on amazon and its pocket size

Raj Mehta says:

Is it easy to mount on ceiling?

Toy, Gadget and Product Reviews by Dad Does says:

Nothing you could do from the Epson, but I guess you could run the audio from your source to a wireless device and then sync that with the sound bar. Sorry, not sure how that would work,

chiripo69 says:

Good luck

CHI CHEN says:

Hi, can you show the video quality by playing blu-ray movie? Thank you very much.

Shane Miller says:

My volume dont work its makes a loud sound what does that mean I just got it from Walmart it works fine with the picture and everything and my kick stand is broken 2

Melandro de la Cuz says:

Nice and Funny Review! Love it!

Ralph Benedict Dela Cruz says:

how does the projector emit sound

Toy, Gadget and Product Reviews by Dad Does says:

Hi Tiffany, thanks for watching. There definitely is a fan that is blowing, but I guess I would not call it overly loud. You hear it before you start your movie, but once the movie is going, I don’t really hear the fan. Hope that helps.

Austin Roberts says:

Does it look good displaying text? I am trying to find a projector that is good with media and text.

Melbourne Shorts says:

Nice review mate!!

sajid ullah says:


Richard Daugird says:

I just got one of these today at a pawn shop, I could read text just fine.

Kiera McCurdy says:

I’m very interested in this projector because of the awesome specs and cheap price, but I was really looking for 16:9 aspect ratio. I am trying to figure out if this has a widescreen option or some other way to not have just 4:3? Thanks!

Ainsley Spence says:

~Epson PowerLite 99WH LCD Projector – HDTV Get it here!

Toy, Gadget and Product Reviews by Dad Does says:

Thanks for watching. Great question, just went back and looked – no, no audio out, which is a con. If you want to hook up to speakers, you will need to use the audio out on your source device.

brandon james says:

im putting together a small home theater on a tight budget. would you recommend this projector for  cinamatic viewing?

Toy, Gadget and Product Reviews by Dad Does says:

Thanks for watching!

menchu baring says:

I did my research on a couple of sites and chose this projector as the best 3D capable 1080p projector for less than $1000

Toy, Gadget and Product Reviews by Dad Does says:

I don’t believe it can.

xxxkahunaxxx says:

great real world vids!!! love it!!!

Jennifer Hollstein-Dorey says:

I would have liked to learn more about the sound quality on this. I see when you have it set up outside you do not use additional speakers. Is is loud enough if you did a movie in the yard to hear the movie? Please review the sound. Thank you 

Tomas Teran says:
