The lamp service lives of projectors that were launched around the same time as the EB-4550 range from 2,000h to 5,000h, and the average lamp service life is 3,400h.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most projectors of this type and age do not support Full HD projection. The EB-4550 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

Other projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might want to consider include the Benq W1060 which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most projectors of a comparable spec and age to the EB-4550 do not support 3D image projection. The EB-4550 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the PowerLite W16 ($849.00), the Z8455WUNL, or the PowerLite W16SK ($1,885.16) all from Epson which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
