Epson Projector 1705 opinions

882 8
I'm looking for an Epson projector model number 1705 as this unit has a usb slot so I could put a,flash drive in it. I see them on eBay starting at $75. I used the atmosfearfx digital projector which was more than fine for my window Hollusion for Halloween but now looking for a bit more clarity and more lumens 2200 for my Christmas window projections. Is anyone familiar with this unit? The seller seems to get these projectors often, he says he cleans them up and sells them.

I don't want to deal with a laptop, DVD player, as I don't have either, or computer, etc.... Just plug and play. And this seemed the easiest

Cutting out the additional equipment would be great, but that's not what that USB does. The projector doesn't have any capability for independently running movie files. The USB port allows you to connect an additional computer and project that computer's screen through the projector.

There are two usb type a is for a,flash drive.
I think chaoscat may be right. I don't see anything in the PDF manual that states it will directly play files from a USB flash drive. It shows that "A" port as a way to connect compatible cameras etc. I could be wrong but these projectors typically don't have hardware/firmware for decoding video files, they simply project what the source is inputting.
