The Epson EX9200 Projector Redefines Classy


Hi Folks,
    Over the past weekend, I've had the pleasure of testing out one of Epson's top-of-the-line Projection units, the EX9200 Pro Wireless WUXGA 3LCD Projector. I can hear a whole segment of you saying, "finally". I know who you are, and the functionality you desire, along with that of many other folks out there, was the focus of this very review. We're going to take baby steps, as there is a lot to cover here, but I thank many of you for your E-mails, telling me you prefer how I did the last review, by adding in the relevant specs as we go, so we'll stick with that. Our journey will take us through Compatibility and Set-Up, Ease of Use, Quality, Portability, and then we'll go over some additional cool factors and wrap it all together for you.

  With these times the way they are, everything starts with the mobile phone, so after unboxing the projector, I got my mobile connected to the projector. All I needed to do was scan one of those little  QR codes and I was connected. The setup was pretty straightforward I got it up and running fast, with a fast coffee break in-between. Seriously, within a few minutes, everything was connected up. Now, all of the connectors are on the back panel of the projector, which keeps up with the need to manipulate the device during the presentation. A very important and quite handy feature is that it does support HDMI ports, which should be standard for most Projection units now, but a quick scan online does not show not all Manufacturers are at that point yet. Odd. Additionally, it will connect to your laptop, PC, or if you have a Mac to connect directly. If you have a standard USB port in your system, it will connect to them. Cables such as the USB cable is included in the box. It's basically USB plug and play compatible with your PC or your Mac (as long as it has the interfaces on it, as mine did, for testing),Overall, there's plenty of compatibility built into the EX9200,and it shows Epson really did their homework on this one. This unit also has a VGA port, RCA and Composite video ports, some of these name you may be familiar with from having an older television or an older VCR unit, however, they still come in quite handy for folks that may have equipment not 100% up to today's standards, and this can prevent an "Oops" moment when a visiting client wants to attach a vintage laptop to the projector! Additionally, the system has built-in Wi-Fi for wireless connections to your tablet, etc. As far as from the Compatibility and Set-up, this gets an A-Plus...Straight Out of the Box,  no mess no fuss, simple as pie. Here are some related setup and compatibility specs:

   As for ease-of-use, anything that gets you up and about it doesn't keep you strapped down is a good thing nowadays. This particular projector is no exception to that. The ability of the EX9200 to utilize Wireless Technology allows you the ease and freedom to move around anywhere within your conference room, for example. Additionally, another great feature that makes your day that much easier is the fact that you can take videos and share them directly from your phone or tablet or laptop, because the EX9200 supports MHL enabled devices (including Chromecast, which is very useful, since a lot of folks use that in today's world. There is also a Remote Control, to further enhance your experience,  and which allows you to move freely about your conference room. The control is intuitive, and is in-line with Epson's Straight-forward End-User facing dialogue/language. Here are some specs related to usage/ease of usage:

Remote Control

   Now, before I jump into the quality, I'm almost positive that many of you do not have friends with light meters. But I'm the head geek here, so I do, and I contacted my friend who has one and we were able to verify the amount of lumens, or the brightness of the projector, as we came within a 3% range of the quantity of lumens stated in the documentation. Very impressive! So, basically the quality of any projector is really based around the brightness and the balance between the light, white light and the color light. This unique balance is what helps bring high resolution images. Interesting story; I'm an avid collector of coins and baseball cards, as many of you know my CardboardandCoins.com website. So basically, I spent quite some time using the different connections and settings while looking over coins. One coin I had up was really a mess (you cannot clean them...it's taboo in coin collecting). That particular coin was always impossible to read, even at 60x power, however, once projected as an image I took of the coin, I was able to make out all features of the coin that I never saw before. Albeit a small image I used, the projector really went to work on it, because the writing on the coin was equivalent at that point to 3 or 4 point printing. Not normally visible across a room, but this shows a tight system with incredible eye for detail.

   As for video quality, Aces all-around. The best part was streaming and not seeing the quality compromised by any means, as I switched Mode -to -Mode. I also experienced the joy of new eye-sight once again in being able to read small print on the projection at small sizes.  Once again, I'm still pretty shocked as I was able to see such small detail with just black and white in earlier testing with whitish background. Basically, the winning Factor here for Epson is D3 LCD3 technology that they used in their projection system that makes it so robust and so incredible and brings everything to life right in front of your very eyes. Now, some pretty detailed specs for you regarding the quality of this protector:

   Some folks need to travel to client sites for their work, and quite often, then need to give a presentation when on site. If the client does not have a projector, your presentation could turn into something evil, but when you have a projector that weighs under 6 lbs, and also comes with its own carrying case, all options are on the table for a successful presentation. Should you decide to mount the unit in your office, the unit is not going to bend brackets and require special braces or hinges, as it just does not weigh that much. Also, in terms of the Unit's exterior, it's a space-saver and a very sleek-looking unit.
Some related Specs:
Including feet: 11.7" x 9.6" x 3.2" (W x D x H)
Excluding feet: 11.7" x 9.6" x 3.0" (W x D x H)
Weight: 5.7 lb (2.4 kg)

   I wanted to share with you something very cool that I noticed about the projector, which was the ability to create a split screen, allowing you to see images from two different sources, and you can jump back and forth between the images with one button. It's pretty cool if you're trying to demonstrate two different perspectives or two different items at the same time to a room. I think that just the fact that it's so lightweight and versatile, and the resolution is so high, and it's extremely bright are all wonderful factors, and I won't mention to you again how impressed I was seeing the detail on that coin, but I have to say that was really the selling point for me! Now, if you run a Sports Card Shop, for example, and let's say you were looking to have a protection unit going and images or video streaming in high resolution, this should certainly be a projector for you. If you are a Realtor, for example, if you are the host in the targeted client seminar, you may want to jump back and forth between a couple of properties to have a high-resolution image cast for them.

   In summary, I'd just like to say that it was a pleasure testing with all of you. I, personally, was not aware of the true high-resolution, high level of brightness, the easy compatibility, and all the wonderful features that would be available. The EX9200 projector is certainly a unit that you would be proud of in an office to own and use in front of clients and it shows that you are Cutting Edge and ahead of the Curve and it is also efficient, in that it does not require too much in the form of user intervention, aside from the person operating the projector. With the benefits you derive from using the EX9200, I can only hope that it brings you scores of new business and clients.

Rent to Own Indicator and Our Public Speaking Promo Video

Hi All,
   Happy Wednesday to all of you. I have to say that I was so amazed with the reported increase in housing prices, that I Tweeted, "Home Prices Up 5 Months in a Row...Really? Anyone want to help establish a "Rent to Own" Indicator?"

After Tweeting this, I realized a few things that I need to clarify:
1) Not everyone is on Twitter. If you are, you can follow @homerunhomes, and
2) Please don't mistake the Tweet from yesterday as a sarcastic one.

    I would really like to see a Rent to Own/Lease Option indicator (inventory based ?). The only problem that I see outside of actually compiling such an indicator is that it might involve some Government entities a little bit more that what is actually required. What are your thoughts on this? I'm sure there are some strong opinions about this.

   OK, so as the second half of the title suggests ("Public Speaking Promo Video"), we have recorded our Public Speaking intro video right here in the office. Our original announcement about Public Speaking appearances (on Real Estate Investing, Rent to Own Homes, Motivational Techniques, and Business Tips that I have learned along the way while growing the business), can be seen in this Blog Post: http://blogging.lease2buy.com/2010/09/public-speaking-on-rent-to-own-finally.html

   Since the video is quite large, it has been uploaded to YouTube, and can be viewed at this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9sMr5BY09Pc

   In the next few days, it will also be available on our Public Speaking Page at http://www.lease2buy.com/speak.php



Thank for reading.
Have a Great Day, and Happy Rent to Owning !!!
