The Optoma EW330 is one of the company’s newest business projectors. This model features 2200 ANSI lumens, a 2000:1 contrast ratio, and WXGA (1280 x 800) resolution with a 16:10 aspect ratio. Recently, a reviewer from LAPTOP released their hands on experience with this little projector. Shortly after opening the box, the writer noticed that the projector was a lot smaller than expected. The EW330 measures only 8.1” x 2.5” x 6.1” (W x H x D) and weighs less than three lbs. Connecting and setting up the projector takes little time and is fairly simple to do. The only problem is that the writer thought the remote control had too many buttons. He stated that the remote had 24 buttons in total and most of them only performed minuscule tasks. The projector was stated to have an impressive brightness, but the fact that there are up to 5 different brightness modes add some confusion to this feature. However, even with the projector’s problems, the writer concluded by stating, “If you’re looking for a widescreen projector that travels well, the Optoma EW330—which can be found for as low as $899 online—is a great choice. It’s light enough to go anywhere, and bright enough to handle most rooms. Our Editors’ Choice pick in this category is the $999 Casio XJ-S43W, because it presents a bigger and brighter image for just $100 more and has a slimmer (but heavier) design. Nevertheless, the EW330 is a great buy.” [via LAPTOP ]
