12 Reasons For

Epson Has Good Multimedia Projector Reviews

On average Epson 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good reviews as do all multimedia projectors produced by Epson.

Supports WiFi Connectivity

Unlike most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the EB-U04 which do not support WiFi connectivity, the Epson EB-U04 supports WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative multimedia projectors which support WiFi connectivity currently available including a cheaper multimedia projector such as the Epson EB-W31 or you might consider a higher rated multimedia projector such as the Epson EB-W32.

We compared this data projector to all the other data projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the Epson EB-U32 is also worth considering.

Supports Full HD Projection

Unlike most of the other data projectors that were launched more than a year ago which do not support Full HD projection, the Epson EB-U04 supports Full HD projection.

Alternative data projectors which support Full HD projection currently available which you might also want to look at include because of it's better review score, the Infocus IN118HDXC.

There are a number of other projectors which also support Full HD projection which you might also want to consider including the Vivitek DH558 ($622.40), or the Epson EB-U32.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Epson EB-U04 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the EB-U04 also have a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Epson EB-W32 which has better reviews.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the DW814, or the DH558 ($622.40) both from Vivitek.

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The Epson EB-U04 has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) data projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

A WUXGA (1920x1200) native projector resolution is actually the best resolution amongst all projectors that have been around for around the same time as the EB-U04.

Amongst similar types of data projector the worst resolution is WXGA (1280x800).

Released Over a Year Ago

This projector was released over a year ago.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Epson EB-U04 has a pretty standard projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors of this age and type.

We compared all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this multimedia projector and we think the EH-TW570, and the VS345 ($415.15) both from Epson which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Epson EB-W32 (3,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated) or the Epson EB-W31 (3,200 ANSI lumens and cheaper).
