5 Reasons For

Just Released Four Months Ago

This projector has only been on the market for four months. Newer data projectors like this one are likely to have better features.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other comparable spec projectors that were launched in the last year, the EIKI EK-401W has a built-in speaker.

Other data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to look at include cheaper projectors such as the Optoma GT5500 ($1,701.69).

It is worth considering other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the EIKI EK-400X, or the Epson EH-TW6700W.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The EK-401W supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) data projector, which is the most common resolution supported by comparable spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the EK-401W. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this data projector. This EIKI multimedia projector also support graphics resolutions of 800 x 600 (SVGA), 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+). Across all recently released comparable spec projectors the worst resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The EK-401W has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the latest projectors. Most of the projectors that were released around the same time as the EK-401W only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, however this projector has three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

The EIKI EK-401W is a two HDMI port data projector.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The EIKI EK-401W does not support 3D image projection, unlike most of the other similar spec projectors that came out in the last year which support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support 3D image projection to this multimedia projector and we think the Optoma GT5500 ($1,701.69) which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The EK-401W does not support Full HD projection, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other new comparable spec projectors also do not support Full HD projection.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Optoma GT5500 ($1,701.69), or the Benq CH100 ($1,020.99) which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most projectors that came out around the same time as the EK-401W do not support WiFi connectivity. The EIKI EK-401W is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Offset

When compared to other projectors that have been available for the last year that we have assessed, the offset of the EIKI EK-401W of only 11.3 percent is one of the smallest. The smallest offset of projectors that were released around the same time as the EK-401W is 11% and the biggest is 150%.

Chart Edit

Very Slow Dot Clock Scanning Frequency

The average dot clock scanning frequency of multimedia projectors that have been on the market for the last year is 160MHz, and the dot clock scanning frequencies range from 150MHz to 170MHz. At only 150 megahertz, the EIKI EK-401W has a quite slow dot clock scanning frequency compared to most of the other new similar spec multimedia projectors.

Chart Edit

Only One Audio in Port

The EK-401W is a one audio in port data projector.

3 Other reasons to consider the EIKI EK-401W

Average Projector Brightness

At 4,600 ANSI lumens, the EK-401W has a fairly typical projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for around the same time as the EK-401W.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to look at the EIKI EK-402U (4,700 ANSI lumens), or the Viewsonic PRO9510L ($1,499.99) (6,200 ANSI lumens).

Average Noise Level

The EK-401W has a pretty typical noise level (35 decibels) compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that came out in the last 12 months.

Other data projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the EK-400X (35dB), or the EK-402U (35dB) both from EIKI or the Viewsonic PRO8510L ($1,349.99) (33dB).

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the EK-401W is WXGA (1280x800). That's 51% less resolution than the most frequently found native projector resolution of 1080p (1920x1080).
