The Home Cinema 3020+ supports Full HD projection, unlike most of the other data projectors of this spec and age which do not support Full HD projection.

Alternative multimedia projectors which support Full HD projection currently available which you might want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Benq W7000+, the Optoma EH501 ($2,541.53), or the Panasonic PT-AE8000U ($1,699.00).

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Epson Home Cinema 3020+ has a built-in speaker, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors that were released more than two years ago do not have a built-in speaker.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Acer H7531D, the NEC NP-M352 ($1,069.00), and the Epson PowerLite 4750W ($1,725.99) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

It may also be worth considering one of the other data projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including the Benq W7000+, or the Epson PowerLite Pro G6550WU which has better reviews.

Poor Expert Reviews

2 Other reasons to consider the Epson Home Cinema 3020+

Released Over Three Years Ago

This projector has been on the market for over three years.

Average Projector Brightness

At 2,300 ANSI lumens, the Home Cinema 3020+ has a relatively average projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the Home Cinema 3020+.

Alternative 2,300 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available which you might also want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Benq W700+, or the Epson EH-TW6100.

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to look at the PowerLite Home Cinema 5030ub ($2,995.00) (2,400 ANSI lumens), the EH-TW9200 (2,400 ANSI lumens), or the 5020UB (2,400 ANSI lumens) all from Epson which also has a higher rating.
