EPSON EB-X04 Projector

Sooner or later, projector with XGA resolution will become the mainstream for general use, either data or multimedia purpose. Epson continue to apply market segmentation by marketing two models of 1024×768 pixels projectors with different price tag. The EB-X04 is the model with cheaper price.

If the projection are always conducted with interference of ambient lights and stray lights (e.g. classroom, lecture hall, outdoor usage), one can consider other XGA projectors with more brightness output, such as Epson EB-X31, BenQ MX528 or Optoma X341.
