Epson Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Acer X1311[plb_1374828_price], the Epson PowerLite 1262W[plb_2223781_price], and the NEC NP-M402X[plb_2341229_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the BrightLink 585WI+ do not support 3D image projection. The BrightLink 585WI+ is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the X1111[pl_1377014_price], or the P1500[pl_1569835_price] both from Acer or the NEC NP-M332[plb_2358438_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The BrightLink 585WI+ does not support Full HD projection, although this is within the context that most of the other data projectors of a similar age and type to the BrightLink 585WI+ also do not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Acer X1311[plb_1374828_price], the Panasonic PT-DS12[plb_2000150_price], or the Elmo BOXi T-350[plb_2615013_price].

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as the BrightLink 585WI+, the BrightLink 585WI+ does not support WiFi connectivity.

Alternative data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might want to consider include the PowerLite 1222[pl_2225031_price], or the 1985WU[pl_2785330_price] both from Epson or the Benq W1500[plb_1561671_price].

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

At only 4,000 hours, the BrightLink 585WI+ has a quite short service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the BrightLink 585WI+. Projectors that have been available for a similar time to the BrightLink 585WI+ have service life of lamp in economic mode of between 3,500h and 30,000h.

Chart Edit
