5 Reasons For

Epson Has Good Data Projector Reviews

15000:1 contrast ratio projectors produced by Epson have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors) and found that Epson also has good reviews across its entire range.

Supports Full HD Projection

Unlike most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years which do not support Full HD projection, the Epson EB-Z9870U supports Full HD projection.

There are a number of other projectors which support Full HD projection currently available that you might also want to consider including the Viewsonic PJD7820HD ($764.37), or the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 2030 ($1,178.54) which has better reviews.

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of projectors that were launched around the same time as the EB-Z9870U is 700 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 11,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,200 ANSI lumens. At 7,500 ANSI lumens, the EB-Z9870U has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the EB-Z9870U.

Chart Edit

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The EB-Z9870U has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a XGA (1024x768) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

This projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is actually the best resolution across all projectors of a comparable spec and age to the EB-Z9870U.

Across similar types of projector the worst resolution is SVGA (800x600).

Fairly Big Lamp Power

The smallest lamp power of multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the EB-Z9870U is 190W and the biggest is 2,400W. With a lamp power of 380 Watts, the EB-Z9870U has one of the bigger lamp power amongst projectors of this age.

12 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The EB-Z9870U does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the EB-Z9870U do have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this data projector and we think the LG PA72G which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The EB-Z9870U does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years do support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the EB-Z9870U do not support WiFi connectivity. The EB-Z9870U is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this data projector to all the other data projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the Optoma EX400, or the Epson EB-Z11000 is also worth considering.

Very Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The EB-Z9870U has a quite short service life of lamp in economic mode (only 4,000 hours) compared to most of the other data projectors of this age and spec. Across all the comparable spec multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the EB-Z9870U the service life of lamp in economic mode range from 3,000h to 20,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 5,900h.

Chart Edit

Very Short Lamp Service Life

The shortest lamp service life of projectors of a similar type and age to the EB-Z9870U is 2,000h, the longest is 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 4,700h. The Epson EB-Z9870U has a fairly short lamp service life (only 3,000 hours) compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Only One BNC Input Port

The Epson EB-Z9870U is a one BNC input port data projector.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level

The EB-Z9870U has a quite loud noise level (38 decibels) compared to most of the other data projectors that were launched more than two years ago. 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago have noise levels of between 26dB and 40dB, and the average noise level is 33dB.

If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might also want to look at the Epson EB-Z11000 (40dB).

Only One Component Video in Port

The EB-Z9870U is a one component video in port multimedia projector. Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the EB-Z9870U have one component video in port.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level in Economy Mode

The noise levels in economy mode of data projectors of this spec and age range from 26dB to 35dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 31dB. The EB-Z9870U has a quite loud noise level in economy mode (35 decibels) compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Colour Light Output

At only 7,500 ANSI lumens, the EB-Z9870U has a quite dim colour light output compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been around for more than two years. The colour light outputs of data projectors that are a similar age to the EB-Z9870U range from 7,500 ANSI lumens to 10,000 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Very Dim White Light Output

The EB-Z9870U has a fairly dim white light output (only 7,500 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the EB-Z9870U.
