Rated 4 out of 5 by Matt Would get 5 stars, but...
A: This thing needs to be bluetooth, or something. If I'm doing a remote presentation, I can't always ask the password to the location's router. I can always wire it up, but that sucks.
B: The audio situation is a disgrace. Why can I not just plug a heap set of computer speakers/etc into it?
C. In the middle of a presentation the other day, my remote decided to not work anymore, but only for the page-forward/back function, which is the only function I need it to perform. Also, the forward/back button on the remote is on the worst possible spot. In general, the remote sucks really, really bad. I am none too pleased with it.
Other than those things, it's great. Powerful enough, great size for travel. I really ike it. If they update it with my gripes fixed, I'll definitely buy one; especially if they can make it even more compact.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Stonewall Excellent portable projector
I bought the Powerlite 1761W for power point presentations to clients and referral sources in conference rooms and class rooms. It is amazingly light and easy to carry, set up and pack up. It produces a very crisp, HD image. My team is totally satisfied and even the least techy members use it with confidence. We do not mess with the focus adjustments, it adjusts perfectly on its own. Three surprises. One, the carry bag is not sturdy looking and is not quite big enough to hold the projector, cables and accessories. I am surprised Epson put its logo on a bag that is so poorly matched to the product. Two, although touted as wireless, it has no wireless connection to my laptop (I was thinking blue tooth), only a wireless connection to my office LAN, not what I expected from reading the product description. Three, although it came with USB and VGA cables my laptop has no VGA port and the USB cable produced a "No signal" message, so I called tech support. I learned the USB cable is not for a laptop connection and I should get a HDMI cable (which did not come with the projector). Tech support told me to just disregard all of the written instructions that come with the projector and let the product run itself. They were right. Tech support was very accessible and responsive and supportive, and the HDMI cable totally worked and made me very happy with the projector.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mathew Kurian Powerlite Projectr 1761W Weak Audio
Projector is very good but the audio is very bad, one port is there written as audio but no in/out sound is coming.
Try to find out how the audio can be amplified

Rated 5 out of 5 by OldAcez PowerLite 1761W - An Excellent Choice
I use my new Epson PowerLite 1761W to make presentations from my MacBook to incarcerated youth.
The presentations range from short skits in mpeg format, to Power Points of various kinds.
The quick & easy wireless set up is wonderful! Plus the modern technology that automatically adjusts the shape of the wall projection keeps viewing from distortion!
I highly recommend this projector to anyone needing a compact, wireless HD projector!

Good controls, good projection, adapts to any angle when connected to a laptop.
But ... I can't use it with Windows RT in my wife's tablet, this is what brought me to this page.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Consultant WIFI Projector
I needed a projector that I could use with all my devices and NOT have to plug them in. As a consultant, I needed a light weight, easily portable projector for various activities in all kinds of settings. This is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Yogo Great product so far
Bright, sharp image though does require dimmed ambient light. An excellent balance of portability with image quality and the convenience features I need such as zoom, auto keystone correction, remote control, cable versatility, wireless network connectivity, at a price point that seems reasonable for all this technology.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ron Great portable projector
This is a great projector for the price. 1.5 pounds lighter than most of the competition and only half as high. The wireless connection was easy to setup and works great. Projected bulb life is a little low but then so is the replacement bulb price.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Local Boy Epson 1761w projector
I just purchased this projector and could Not connect to wifi.
When I contacted Epson, they referred me to their website to download the driver. Thats a problem as I followed their brief instructions.
After downloading the driver, the projector appears to be working fine.
However, after turning off the projector, the motor (not lamp) seems to get burning HOT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Freedome2 Great projector!!!
Got this projector to play movies at home and take it with me on my camping trips, don't have words to say how happy me and my family are with this product...
Image looks great, very clear!!
Haven't be able to connected it wirelessly, set up is a little bit complicated it but will call tech support, speaker not to loud but this is not important to us because we have a sorround system.
Overall very satisfied with this product and will definitely recommend it.
