  • Excellent budget projector
    Reviewed by Wishkid - November 18, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This Epson Cinema 880 is very well built, easy to setup and has a great sharp image for a 1080p resolution and is bright. Once you get it out of the box you will notice how light this thing is meaning that yes it could be portable. I love the remote controller. It is very easy to use. There's not that many connectors in the back it only has 1 HDMI, 2 USB and 1 audio out. I connected my PS4 and started playing FIFA and I did not experience any lag during my game play, neither online. I didn’t feel any disadvantages for lag video. This is only a 1080p not a 4K but for the price this thing handles images very well and with a little noise not bad. One thing that I did notice within 30 mins of use my room felt a little hot and my AC was at 70 degrees. I turned my wall into a little huge screen, I really felt like I was in the movie theater. Watching the Mandalorian on this size screen was fantastic. Note that my wall was not fully white and the image was still crisp. I can just imagine how good it will look with an actual projector screen which I am planning to get soon. I would recommend this projector for the value, brightness, sharp image, compact, well built, and easy setup. In the box you get the projector, remote with batteries, power cable and manual.

  • My First Time using a Projector
    Reviewed by anagnt05 - July 1, 2021

    my first time using a projector When I received the email from Epson to test one of their projectors I was super excited, since I was going to have the experience of being the first time to use a projector, and what better if it is with Epson, if I have tried a lot of their products and not I can complain they are of excellent quality and super recommended. One of the things that I liked a lot is its easy configuration, we can adjust the language to which it is easier for us to understand, I love the option of connecting via WIFI I imagine that many in this time will be given in the same way. The image was amazing even in broad daylight. The 3300 lumens really make a big difference no matter the lighting, you can still see it vividly! The fan is very quiet and not distracting and its compact size. I plugged in an HDMI cable to allow me to switch between inputs and avoid having to unplug and plug things in. The projector comes with a remote control that can do all the image adjustments, make the image clear, and zoom. The image can be sharpened by using the focus ring on the projector. The image is clear and sharp, I was quite impressed with the image quality. I must say that this Epson Home Cinema 880 1080p projector is a must have. If you like a sharp image and easy setup, this is it. You can configure this projector to work from your computer and mobile device. I arrive just in time to use it at my baby shower and to be able to entertain family and friends.

  • Bright/vivid image, quiet fan, lacking inputs
    Reviewed by ReviewedByPhil - December 1, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We use a projector as our main TV in our living room and this Epson Home Cinema 880 is replacing our current 1080p LED projector. The first thing we noticed is that the Epson’s 3LCD display generates a much brighter image than our previous projector, so at 3300 lumens, it is bright enough to be seen clearly during the day and with some lights on (indoors). The clarity of the image is also super sharp and crisp all the way to the edges of the screen with no vignetting at the corners. The projector has a built-in spring-loaded front foot for pitching the image upward and two adjustable leveling feet at the back, but these couldn’t go high enough to get the image where we needed it from where the projector was placed. Since the image was too high, we had to pitch the projector at a downward angle by putting a book under the back side of the unit. The automatic keystone for both vertical and horizontal skew correction worked okay sometimes depending how we positioned the projector, but I did have to manually adjust it to get it perfectly square. I like that the sliding lens cover also acts as an A/V mute switch and cuts off the audio and switches off the lamp, helping to preserve the lamp life when not in use. You can also extend the lamp’s usable hours from 6000 to 12000 hours by setting the projector to ECO mode, which we primarily use and the image is still pretty bright and clear though contrast suffers a bit. I had no problem getting the image dimensions up to a 100 inch diagonal, which is the size of the PVC screen we use in the living room. It was actually a little too big for the screen where we have the projector placed, so we use the digital “e-zoom” to zoom out and make the image smaller to fit the screen’s borders. You can also digitally zoom in, but note that there is no physical zooming capability so the projected “area” always stays the same size and the image scales within that. The picture also looked great on our outdoor 120 inch screen when we used it for outdoor movie night, and the image was unaffected by the light cast on the screen from the fire pit. The focus wheel behind the lens is smooth and easy to adjust incrementally, so you can get the clearest image possible (at larger projection sizes you’ll be able to discern individual pixels; the max is 320 inches). The fan noise when set to ‘cinema’ or ‘game’ modes in ECO mode is pretty quiet, even though the projector still puts out a ton of heat. The fan only gets constantly loud if you set it to ‘bright cinema’ (good for day time viewing) or ‘dynamic’ color settings. The one other noise factor that we noticed when using the projector is that occasionally there are moments of clicking/grinding that sound like they are coming from the around the lens. We think it’s from the ‘Dynamic Iris’ setting which tries to adjust the brightness on the fly based on the content as this noise happens whenever we change scenes, screens, or apps on the screen. The onboard internal mono speaker for this projector also isn’t very impressive. It is serviceable if you’re traveling and want to pack light, but it isn’t going to give you a cinema quality experience to go with the awesome picture. For that, I recommend you plug in an external speaker, sound bar, or even headphones into the AUX audio out port. The analog AUX is the only audio output option, though it can be converted to RCA using an adapter (not included); I would have preferred an optical audio output or Bluetooth for connecting an external speaker. This unit is also lacking on the input side with a single USB-A and a single HDMI port for input. We’re constantly pulling HDMI cables out to plug something else in so we may consider getting and HDMI switch to bridge this gap. You can also connect a computer to the projector using the USB-B port, though you will have to install the Espon USB Display software to use this port. One thing that did disappoint me was that the USB-A port doesn’t have sufficient power output to power the FireTV streaming stick; we had to run a long USB cable from the FireTV to a wall outlet instead of being able to use the USB port right on the projector. While I did read that this projector supports wireless connections for projection, monitoring, and control via remote, it requires a separate Wireless LAN module, that’s not included in the box. The unit has IR receivers in the front and back so you can use the remote control from either side of the projector. The remote looks a bit complicated, but all the buttons are clearly labeled and each set of keys help you quickly access common functions, like brightness, color mode, and keystone, without making you dig through the projector’s on-screen menus. However, it’s not backlit so can be hard to see in the dark. If you don’t have the remote handy, you can also use the buttons on top of the projector. Overall, the projector’s image quality and brightness is its main highlight. The unit is easy to use and set up, and the mediocre sound can be mitigated using an external speaker. Despite the lack of multiple inputs and underpowered USB port, you can still make due by simply working around these shortcomings, so they’re not show stoppers.

  • Wow! Compact , simple to use and crisp clear video
    Reviewed by dfortuna - June 30, 2021

    Wow absolutely loving this Projector. Got the Epson Cinema 880 to try and first off love the compact size. I replaced it with my old projector and it’s about half the size of my old one. The resolution is amazing and I immediately noticed a difference. The 3,300 lumens really help give off a crisp 1080 image. Comes with everything you need to get started projector, power cable , remote and batteries. I also noticed it turns on much quicker then my old projector and the blacks and colors are very vivid. Also for the price point it’s a great bargain for what you get. So far I’m really enjoy it and made my movie watching experience much better. I have mine hooked to a home theater setup but it goes have a built in speaker if you want to take portable and the size makes it easy to transport. “This is a review for the Epson Home Cinema 880 1080p projector that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.”
