Build quality and value for your money.
-The Epson Powerlite S5 projector is very good value for money. It is a well-built machine that is genuinely worth every penny.
Other comments
-Despite its bulky outlook, the Epson Powerlite S5 projector is still portable. I have used it for Home video projections, presentations at school and at work. I have also done experimental projections with it in various locations. This makes the Epson Powerlite S5 projector a fun product to have when sharing photos with family or experimenting in art. It comes highly recommended for a reasonable budget and a need for flexibility between the home and the office.

The Epson Powerlite S5 is therefore a great acquisition for the home and the office. There will be no need to wait for the Technician to "hook you up". With its plug and play capability, the Epson Powerlite S5 will give movie watching at home a totally different feel and at the same time give your presentations that professional look.

It is also the ideal projector for Art students who do installations and presentation in a school environment in that it is sturdy and also comes with a mid-range price tag.Loss or damage cannot be compared to the financial ramifications this would have for a higher end product.
