Epson EF-12 review

The Epson EF-12 is a handy all-round projector for indoors or outdoors, and what it lacks in power it makes up in convenience

Digital Camera World Verdict

This is a great all-round projector for home and garden use. There’s no battery, so you can’t take it camping but there are enough input options to make it usable wherever you can find a power outlet. While the picture isn’t quite as cinematic as more traditional machines, it’s easily bright and bold enough to enjoy videos and stills in most environments. If the feature set fits, then it will do the job very nicely.
