One Industry Award
This multimedia projector received an "Editor's Choice" from PC Mag who concluded that this data projector was fantastic.

Epson Has Good Data Projector Reviews
On average Epson 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors have good reviews as do all projectors produced by Epson.
Just Released Four Months Ago
This multimedia projector is one of the latest multimedia projectors to be released.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The PowerLite 585W has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched in the last 12 months also have a built-in speaker.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq MH530[plb_3334650_price], or the Acer H6510BD[plb_3155054_price].
1400 X 1050 (SXGA+) Graphics Resolution
The PowerLite 585W supports a maximum resolution of 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+). That's 60% more resolution than a 1280 x 720 (HD 720) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by latest projectors. This Epson projector also support graphics resolutions of 1280 x 960, 1600 x 900, 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA) and 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). The worst resolution of all comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the PowerLite 585W is 640 x 350 and the best is 3840 x 2160.
+4 More reasons for
Three Audio in Ports
The PowerLite 585W has more audio in ports than most of the similar spec projectors that were released in the last year. Most of the latest multimedia projectors only have between one and two audio in ports, however this Epson projector has three audio in ports.
100V AC Input Voltage
This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to it.
Quite Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode
Across all the projectors that were released in the last year the noise levels in economy mode range from 26dB to 39dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 29dB. With a noise level in economy mode of only 28 decibels, the Epson PowerLite 585W has a fairly quiet noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the PowerLite 585W.
6 Reasons Against
Does Not Support Full HD Projection
Most 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PowerLite 585W do not support Full HD projection. The PowerLite 585W is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.
Other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might also want to look at include the Benq MH530[plb_3334650_price], or the Acer H6510BD[plb_3155054_price] which also has a higher rating.
Does Not Support 3D Image Projection
Like most of the other latest 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors, the Epson PowerLite 585W does not support 3D image projection.
We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the Benq MH530[plb_3334650_price], or the Acer H6510BD[plb_3155054_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
Like most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PowerLite 585W, the PowerLite 585W does not support WiFi connectivity.
Very Small Digital Zoom
The digital zooms of projectors that have been on the market for the last year range from 1.3x to 8x. At only 1.35 times zoom factor, the Epson PowerLite 585W has a fairly small digital zoom compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the PowerLite 585W.
+3 More reasons against
Very Dim White Light Output
The Epson PowerLite 585W has one of the dimmer white light outputs (only 3,300 ANSI lumens) amongst similar spec projectors of this age. Across all the data projectors that were released in the last 12 months the white light outputs range from 2,500 ANSI lumens to 6,500 ANSI lumens, and the average white light output is 4,600 ANSI lumens.
Only One Built-In Speaker
Most recently released data projectors have one built-in speaker, including the PowerLite 585W which has one built-in speaker.
3 Other reasons to consider the Epson PowerLite 585W
Average Projector Brightness
At 3,300 ANSI lumens, the PowerLite 585W has a relatively typical projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for a similar time to the PowerLite 585W.
Average Noise Level
At 35 decibels, the PowerLite 585W has a pretty typical noise level compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for the last year.
If you are not worried about having a louder noise level then you might want to consider the Acer H6510BD[plb_3155054_price] (32dB and higher rated), or the Benq MH530[plb_3334650_price] (33dB and higher rated).
