7 Reasons For

Good Brand

Epson is one of the superior projector manufacturers according to average reviews from experts and users, and Epson also has good reviews for its 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Epson EB-945 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other data projectors of this spec and age.

There are a number of alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might want to look at including the Benq MH680[plb_1998672_price] which has better reviews; or the NEC L102[plb_2226819_price] which is cheaper.

We compared all the other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this data projector and we think the Epson EB-570[plb_2237069_price] is also worth considering.

Supports Two Video Colour Modes

The Epson EB-945 has a greater number of video colour modes than most 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as it. This Epson projector supports a Dynamic video colour mode, which is the most commonly supported video colour mode supported by 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the EB-945. The video colour mode "sRGB" is also supported by this multimedia projector.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Epson EB-945 is a three VGA (D-Sub) port multimedia projector. Most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the EB-945 have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Two Component Video in Ports

The Epson EB-945 is a two component video in port projector.

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

With an RMS rated power of 16 Watts, the Epson EB-945 has a fairly high RMS rated power compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the EB-945. The RMS rated power of projectors of a comparable spec and age to the EB-945 range from 1W to 20W.

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 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to it.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most comparable spec data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the EB-945 do not support 3D image projection. The Epson EB-945 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection including the MH680[pl_1998672_price], or the TH682[pl_2448398_price] both from Benq.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Epson EB-945 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that came out around the same time as the EB-945 also do not support Full HD projection.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might also want to look at including the NEC L102[plb_2226819_price]; or the MH680[pl_1998672_price], or the TH682[pl_2448398_price] both from Benq.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Epson EB-945 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the EB-945 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Lamp Power

With a lamp power of only 200 Watts, the Epson EB-945 has one of the smaller lamp power amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age. Across all the projectors of this type and age the lamp power range from 15W to 470W.

5 Other reasons to consider the Epson EB-945

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when Epson released the EB-945.

Average Noise Level

The Epson EB-945 has a relatively standard noise level (37 decibels) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the EB-945.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 37dB noise level data projectors currently available including the Epson EB-X24[plb_2017451_price] which has better reviews; or the EB-X25[pl_2017455_price], or the EB-955W[pl_2017457_price] both from Epson which is cheaper.

1024 X 768 (XGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Epson EB-945 is 1024 x 768 (XGA). That's over two times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution supported by 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Epson EB-945 has a fairly standard projector brightness compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the EB-945.

We compared all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors to this projector and we think a cheaper projector such as the Epson EB-955W[plb_2017457_price] or you might consider a better rated projector such as the Benq MH680[plb_1998672_price] are also worth considering.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth looking at include the Panasonic PT-TW340E[plb_3140214_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens) which is also cheaper.
