8 Reasons For

Two Industry Awards

PC Mag decided that this projector was superb and gave it their "Editor's Choice" award.

Projectorcentral.com gave this data projector a "Highly Rated" award.

Good Expert Reviews

Based on three expert reviews from sites including PC Mag, projectorcentral.com and pcworld.pl the average expert rating of this projector is 85%.

Epson Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

On average Epson 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good reviews compared to other manufacturers as do all projectors produced by Epson.

Good Technical Features

One customer who bought the Epson BrightLink 485Wi concluded that it had good features. Pcmag.com mentioned on PC Mag four years ago “Among its more interesting features are automatic calibration”.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The BrightLink 485Wi has a built-in speaker. Most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the BrightLink 485Wi also have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker to this data projector and we think because of it's better review score, the NEC NP-M271X[plb_1525269_price], the Optoma TW610STi[plb_1749808_price], and the Epson BrightLink 436Wi[plb_1875520_price] is also worth considering.

This projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many projectors of this age and type.

Chart Edit

Fairly High RMS Rated Power

The BrightLink 485Wi has a quite high RMS rated power (16 Watts) compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been available for more than two years. The lowest RMS rated power of comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the BrightLink 485Wi is 0.5W and the highest is 20W.

100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many multimedia projectors of this age and spec.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The BrightLink 485Wi does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the BrightLink 485Wi also do not support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Optoma TW610STi[plb_1749808_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The BrightLink 485Wi does not support Full HD projection, although this is within the context that most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the BrightLink 485Wi also do not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support Full HD projection to this projector and we think the Infocus IN3118[plb_2221772_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the BrightLink 485Wi do not support WiFi connectivity. The Epson BrightLink 485Wi is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Epson BrightLink 436Wi[plb_1875520_price] which is also higher rated.

Very Small Digital Zoom

Across all the similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the BrightLink 485Wi the digital zooms range from 1.3x to 4x. With a digital zoom of only 1.35 times zoom factor, the Epson BrightLink 485Wi has one of the smaller digital zooms amongst similar spec data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

At only 4,000 hours, the BrightLink 485Wi has a fairly short service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the BrightLink 485Wi. 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago have service life of lamp in economic mode of between 230h and 20,000h.

3 Other reasons to consider the Epson BrightLink 485Wi

Released Over Four Years Ago

This projector was released over four years ago.

Average Noise Level

At 35 decibels, the BrightLink 485Wi has a fairly standard noise level compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for a similar time to the BrightLink 485Wi.

Data projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth considering include the NEC UM330[plb_1525062_price] (28dB).

Average Projector Brightness

The Epson BrightLink 485Wi has a pretty average projector brightness (3,100 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for around the same time as the BrightLink 485Wi.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 3,100 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available including the Optoma TW610STi[plb_1749808_price] which has better reviews.

If you want a multimedia projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Infocus IN3118[plb_2221772_price] (3,600 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.
