9 Reasons For

Good Brand

10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors built by Epson have good ratings on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all multimedia projectors (not just 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors) and found that Epson also has good ratings across its entire range.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Epson 98H has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Epson 98H is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this projector). This Epson data projector also support graphics resolutions of 1366 x 768, 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). The worst resolution of all 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the 98H is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

At 10,000 hours, the Epson 98H has a quite long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the 98H. Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released one year ago the service life of lamp in economic mode range from 3,500h to 30,000h.

Chart Edit

Two Audio in Ports

The Epson 98H is a two audio in port projector. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the 98H have between one and two audio in ports.

Chart Edit

Two USB 2.0 Ports

The Epson 98H is a two USB 2.0 port data projector.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on data projectors of a similar age and type to it.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Transfer Rate

This projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data transfer rate, which is the most frequently found ethernet LAN data transfer rate on 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Narrow

The average width of projectors of this age and spec is 350mm. With a width of only 295 millimeters, the Epson 98H is one of the narrower similar spec multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the 98H amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Epson 98H does not support 3D image projection, unlike most of the other projectors of this age and spec which support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type support Full HD projection, however the Epson 98H does not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the 98H do not support WiFi connectivity. The Epson 98H is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the Epson EX7235 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Quite Loud Noise Level

At 37 decibels, the Epson 98H has a fairly loud noise level compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the 98H. The quietest noise level of projectors of this age and spec is 27dB and the loudest is 47dB.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 37dB noise level projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the PowerLite X27 ($419.99), or the 965H ($840.74) both from Epson.

This projector was released over a year ago.

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Epson 98H has a relatively average projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the 98H.

There are a number of other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available that you might want to look at including the Epson PowerLite W29 ($572.99), or the Acer X152H which has better reviews.

If you would prefer a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the CP-CX301WN (3,100 ANSI lumens), or the CPX3041WN ($751.78) (3,200 ANSI lumens) both from Hitachi or the Ricoh PJ WX2240 ($550.98) (3,100 ANSI lumens).
