National Movie Night is June 10, which gave Epson a great excuse to promote “epic projector deals to create a movie-going experience at home.” We liked a few of the models currently on sale, including the 720p(now $800, or $200 off) and 1080p (now $900, or $100 off) mini laser projectors. They are on sale until June 5 on Amazon and with updating the EF-100 later in June.
Geoff Morrison, who reviewed the EF-100 for CNET, thought it was a bit pricey for what it offered, despite being a fan of laser-powered projectors. The same goes for the EF-12, which he rated slightly higher. Both are quite compact and have built-in streaming with Android TV as well as built-in speakers that produce sound. Despite its small drawbacks, the EF-12 made our list ofas the “best compact laser projector”.
Morrison’s quick take on the EF-12: “The EF-12 is a very portable little projector that’s very similar to the Anker Nebula Pro and BenQ GS50, but fits a slightly different niche It’s easy to carry around and doubles as a Bluetooth speaker, but unlike those two it can’t run on a battery – it requires AC power. created by Epson’s “MicroLaser Array projection technology. Yes, laser beams, which deliver a brighter image than LED-based models like the Nebula and GS50.”
