8 Reasons For

Epson Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

We checked 735 expert and owner reviews for Epson projectors and found that on average Epson has good ratings compared to other manufacturers. We also found that Epson has good ratings specifically for its projectors.

Very Bright Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PowerLite Pro G6800 is 300 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 9,200 ANSI lumens. When compared to other similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago that we have assessed, the Epson PowerLite Pro G6800's projector brightness of 7,000 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the EB-Z9800W (8,300 ANSI lumens), or the EB-Z9900W (9,200 ANSI lumens) both from Epson.
