7 Reasons For

Epson Has Excellent Multimedia Projector Reviews

We calculated the average reviews for all Epson projectors and specifically for Epson 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors and found that in both cases Epson had excellent reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Epson EB-X12 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the EB-X12.

There are a number of other projectors with a built-in speaker which you might want to also look at including a higher Kagoo Rating™ product such as the Epson EB-430 LW.

Supports Eight Video Colour Modes

The number of video colour modes supported by the Epson EB-X12 is more than most 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to it. This data projector supports a Presentation video colour mode, which is the most commonly supported video colour mode supported by 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the EB-X12. The video colour modes "Blackboard", "Dynamic", "Photo", "Sports", "sRGB", "Theatre" and "Whiteboard" are also supported by this Epson data projector.

Chart Edit

A Bit Shallow

The average depth of 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the EB-X12 is 300mm, and the depths range from 10mm to 560mm. The Epson EB-X12 is one of the shallower similar spec data projectors that came out around the same time as the EB-X12 (only 228 millimeters) amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

A Bit Narrow

With a width of only 295 millimeters, the Epson EB-X12 is one of the narrower multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the EB-X12 amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age. Across all the similar spec projectors that are older than two years the widths range from 13mm to 660mm.

Chart Edit

Very Light

At only 2,300 grams, the Epson EB-X12 is fairly light compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EB-X12. The lightest data projector that was launched more than two years ago is 900g weight, the heaviest is 23,000g, and the average weight is 4,800g.

Chart Edit

A Bit Short

The average height of comparable spec multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the EB-X12 is 130mm, and the heights range from 5.2mm to 510mm. With a height of only 77 millimeters, the Epson EB-X12 is fairly short compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for around the same time as the EB-X12.

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are more than two years old, the Epson EB-X12 does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors with a WiFi connectivity to this data projector and we think the BrightLink 436Wi ($1,861.72), the EB-430 LW, or the BrightLink Pro 1410Wi all from Epson are also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most of the 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the EB-X12, including the Epson EB-X12, do not support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in different multimedia projectors with a 3D image projection including the DW312, or the TW695 both from Optoma.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most of the 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the EB-X12 do not support Full HD projection, including the Epson EB-X12.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors with a Full HD projection to this projector and we think the NEC UM280, or the Hitachi CP-X5022 ($1,006.99) are also worth considering.

Very Dim White Light Output

The average white light output of similar spec data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EB-X12 is 3,100 ANSI lumens. The Epson EB-X12 has a quite dim white light output (only 2.8 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the EB-X12.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Colour Light Output

Across all the data projectors that were launched around the same time as the EB-X12 the colour light outputs range from 2.7 ANSI lumens to 5,000 ANSI lumens, and the average colour light output is 3,100 ANSI lumens. The Epson EB-X12 has one of the dimmer colour light outputs (only 2.8 ANSI lumens) amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Loud Noise Level

With a noise level of 37 decibels, the Epson EB-X12 has a quite loud noise level compared to most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the EB-X12. The quietest noise level of 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are more than two years old is 26dB, the loudest is 41dB, and the average noise level is 34dB.

Different 37dB noise level multimedia projectors which you might want to also look at include a higher Kagoo Rating™ product such as the PowerLite S12+, the EB-1935, or the BrightLink 436Wi ($1,861.72) all from Epson.

3 Other reasons to consider the Epson EB-X12

Over Two Years Old

Epson released the EB-X12 over two years ago.

Average Projector Brightness

The Epson EB-X12 has a relatively typical projector brightness (2,800 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the EB-X12.

There are a number of alternative 2800 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors which you might want to also look at including the NEC VE281 which have a better Kagoo Rating™.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth considering include the EB-430 LW (3000 ANSI lumens and higher rated), the BrightLink 436Wi ($1,861.72) (3000 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the EB-1400 (3100 ANSI lumens and higher rated) all from Epson.

XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the Epson EB-X12 is XGA (1024x768). That's 23% less resolution than the most common native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors that have a resolution of XGA (1024x768) that you might want to consider including a higher scoring multimedia projector such as the Epson EB-1935, or the Optoma EX685.

If you are looking for a projector with a higher resolution then you might want to also look at the EB-1400 (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated), the EB-1410 (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated), or the EB-425W (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated) all from Epson.
