7 Reasons For

Good Brand

We checked 735 owner and expert reviews for Epson projectors and found that on average Epson has good ratings compared to other brands. We also found that Epson has good ratings specifically for its 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Epson EX5230 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the EX5230.

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the Epson PowerLite W29 ($572.99) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

1440 X 1050 Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Epson EX5230 is 1440 x 1050. That's over four times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this data projector). This Epson projector also support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1440 x 900 and 1152 x 864 (XGA+) and 1280 x 800 (WXGA). Across all projectors of this age and type the worst resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright Colour Light Output

With a colour light output of 3,500 ANSI lumens, the Epson EX5230 has one of the brighter colour light outputs amongst similar spec projectors of this age. The colour light outputs of 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the EX5230 range from 2,100 ANSI lumens to 4,100 ANSI lumens, and the average colour light output is 3,000 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Quite Bright White Light Output

The white light outputs of multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the EX5230 range from 2,700 ANSI lumens to 4,100 ANSI lumens, and the average white light output is 3,100 ANSI lumens. At 3,500 ANSI lumens, the Epson EX5230 has a quite bright white light output compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to it.

Chart Edit

Narrow

The Epson EX5230 is one of the narrower multimedia projectors of this age and spec (only 294.64 millimeters) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age. The average width of similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the EX5230 is 350mm.

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Epson EX5230 does not support 3D image projection, unlike most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for more than a year.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Epson EX5230 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EX5230 do support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the EX5230, the Epson EX5230 does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this data projector and we think the Epson EX7235 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Fairly Loud Noise Level

With a noise level of 37 decibels, the Epson EX5230 has one of the louder noise levels amongst comparable spec projectors of this age. Projectors of this age and spec have noise levels of between 27dB and 47dB, and the average noise level is 34dB.

We compared this projector to all the other 37dB noise level projectors and we think the PowerLite X27 ($419.99), and the EX7235 both from Epson which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you are not concerned about having a louder noise level then you might also want to consider the Epson EB-W29 (37dB).

Very Small Lamp Power

At only 200 Watts, the Epson EX5230 has a fairly small lamp power compared to most of the other data projectors of this type and age. Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the EX5230 the lamp power range from 170W to 420W, and the average lamp power is 250W.

Chart Edit

Very Low RMS Rated Power

With an RMS rated power of only 2 Watts, the Epson EX5230 has a quite low RMS rated power compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for more than a year. Across all the projectors that were released one year ago the RMS rated power range from 1W to 20W.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

The Epson EX5230 is a one VGA (D-Sub) port data projector.

Chart Edit

Only One HDMI Port

Most data projectors of this spec and age have between one and two HDMI ports, including the Epson EX5230 which has one HDMI port.

3 Other reasons to consider the Epson EX5230

Released Over a Year Ago

Epson released the EX5230 over a year ago.

Average Projector Brightness

The Epson EX5230 has a relatively typical projector brightness (3,500 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the EX5230.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3,500 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the Epson 965H ($840.74) which has better reviews.

If you would prefer a multimedia projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the Hitachi CPWX3541WN (3,700 ANSI lumens), or the Panasonic PT-VW355N ($1,226.95) (4,000 ANSI lumens).
