Epson just dropped a slew of projectors on the market, I’ve got three press release here about all of them and they’re ranging from $500 up to $2200. For $500 you can get the decently spec’d PowerLite S9 that features USB Plug-n-Play, SVGA resolution and 2500 Lumens brightness. They’ve also got four more in the PowerLite series that are super-slim and ultra-portable that are more aimed at professionals who need to take them on the go, pricing start under $1000 with varying resolution and luminosity. To round things off they’ve got the new BrightLink 450Wi which is an interactive projector for businesses that features 2500 Lumens, and EXGA resolution, it’s actually a projector and pen combination.
