Earlier I’ve done a review on the Epson Projector EH-TW550, today, I’m going to share the review of another Espon projector model, EB-X18 which SAFRA has got me to review.

So what’s the difference between the 2?  The EH-TW550 is of a slighter higher end which allows 3D viewing experience while the EB-X18 is designed to be affordable yet comprehensive.
The EB-X18 is designed with a white a and glossy chasis, which most people felt that it looks more chic and trendy.  At a weight of 2.4kg only, it offers better mobility than the EH-TW550 which weighs approx 2.7Kg. 
With 3,000lm color light output and 10,000:1 contrast, you can present beautiful images with added clarity even down the finest details, without the need to worry about ambient light levels.

The EB-X18 has also taken into consideration for people with colour blind vision, using colour schemes that can be easily identified and distinguished; as such, functions on the projector’s remote control, control panel and LED lights can be easily seen, enabling everyone to operate the projector with ease.

With the two height-adjustable feet at the back and a height-adjustable kickstand at the front, the EB-X18 is easy to set up.  The Horizontal / Vertical keystone feature allows you to adjust the alignment of the projection with ease, be it whatever the angle of the projector may be.

Another cool feature of the EB-X18, is that it is compatible with Wi-Fi connection where one can easily transfer images from PC / Laptop with the optional ELPAP07 wireless module. The iProjection application allows you to display images and files from your smart devices, and allows usage of touch-screen operations, such as flicking to turn pages and pinching to zoom in or out which is convenient solution for smart projection.

With the built-in HDMI terminal, high quality images and music can be transmitted with a breeze. Even images projected from a SVGA model will appear crisp and clear With the digital connection. In additional, the USB Display function makes it possible to connect to a Windows & Mac PC via a USB cable instead of an RGB cable. It is also possible to view a jpeg/bmp/png/gif file without a PC just by inserting a USB memory device.

One highlight of the projector is that its projector optics uses lead-free lenses, and the unpainted chasis does not contain chlorine or bromine in the flame retardants used in the plastic housing, make EB-X18 environment friendly.  In addition, there is Eco functions that helps reducing the power consumption. The projector will enter into super low brightness setting if no signal is detected after 5 minutes; lamp wattage will drop by 70% during this standby mode, making it an eco-friendly choice. 

 
As an overall, I like the Epson EB-X18 being eco-friendly and user-friendly, and best, it is reasonably priced, which makes it pocket-friendly too!
