8 Reasons For

Good Brand

We checked 735 user and expert reviews for Epson data projectors and found that on average Epson has good reviews. We also found that Epson has good reviews specifically within its 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors range.

Supports WiFi Connectivity

The Epson EB Z9870U supports WiFi connectivity, which is unusual. Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the EB Z9870U do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the EB-Z11000, or the EB-Z11005 both from Epson or the Optoma EX400 is also worth considering.
