9 Reasons For

Epson Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

We checked 735 owner and expert reviews for Epson multimedia projectors and found that on average Epson has good ratings compared to other manufacturers. We also found that Epson has good ratings specifically within its 16000:1 contrast ratio projectors range.

Supports WiFi Connectivity

The Epson EB-520 supports WiFi connectivity, which is unusual. Most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age do not support WiFi connectivity.

There are a number of alternative projectors which support WiFi connectivity currently available which you might also want to consider including the Epson EB-535W[plb_2780308_price] which has better reviews; or the Epson EB-530[plb_2785737_price] which is cheaper.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Epson EB-520 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 16000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the EB-520.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Acer H7550BD[plb_3186332_price], or the Epson EB-535W[plb_2780308_price] which has better reviews; or the Epson EB-530[plb_2785737_price] which is cheaper.

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Epson EB-520 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the 16000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the EB-520. This Epson projector is a three VGA (D-Sub) port projector compared to most of the 16000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released one year ago which only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

With a service life of lamp in economic mode of 10,000 hours, the Epson EB-520 has a fairly long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec. The shortest service life of lamp in economic mode of projectors that have been available for around the same time as the EB-520 is 6,000h and the longest is 10,000h.

Chart Edit

Fairly High RMS Rated Power

The RMS rated power of 16000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the EB-520 range from 10W to 16W, and the average RMS rated power is 13W. With an RMS rated power of 16 Watts, the Epson EB-520 has one of the higher RMS rated power amongst similar spec multimedia projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Lamp Service Life

The Epson EB-520 has one of the longer lamp service lives (5,000 hours) amongst data projectors of this age. The lamp service lives of 16000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than a year range from 4,000h to 5,000h, and the average lamp service life is 4,600h.

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 commonly found ethernet LAN data transfer rate on 16000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than a year.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

The noise levels in economy mode of data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the EB-520 range from 28dB to 33dB. At only 28 decibels, the Epson EB-520 has a quite quiet noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the EB-520.

10 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Epson EB-520 does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other data projectors of this age and type 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 H7550BD[pl_3186332_price], or the H7550ST[pl_3837015_price] both from Acer.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most data projectors of a similar age and spec to the EB-520 do not support Full HD projection. The Epson EB-520 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the H7550BD[pl_3186332_price], or the H7550ST[pl_3837015_price] both from Acer which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the Epson EB-520 has one of the dimmer projector brightness amongst multimedia projectors of this age. The dimmest projector brightness of projectors of this age and spec is 300 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 3,400 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 2,600 ANSI lumens.

If you want a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the Acer H7550BD[plb_3186332_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated); or the Epson EB-530[plb_2785737_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens and cheaper).
