4 Reasons For

Good Brand

We calculated the average ratings for all Epson data projectors and also specifically for Epson 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors and found that in both cases Epson had good ratings compared to other manufacturers.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years, the Epson PowerLite S17 has a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Three Audio in Ports

The PowerLite S17 is a three audio in port projector. Most of the other projectors of this age and spec only have between one and two audio in ports.

Chart Edit

Two USB 2.0 Ports

The PowerLite S17 is a two USB 2.0 port projector. Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PowerLite S17 have between one and two USB 2.0 ports.

11 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the PowerLite S17, the PowerLite S17 does not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The PowerLite S17 does not support Full HD projection, although this is within the context that most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age also do not support Full HD projection.

Alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might also want to look at include the Epson 1975W ($1,915.99).

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Epson PowerLite S17 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the PowerLite S17 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

It is worth also looking at alternative projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Benq W1500, or the Epson PowerLite 1222 which is also higher rated.

Only SVGA (800x600) Native Projector Resolution

The PowerLite S17 has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 53% less resolution than the most frequently found native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

This projector's resolution (SVGA (800x600)) is in fact the worst resolution across all projectors of a comparable age and spec to the PowerLite S17.

Across similar types of projector the best resolution is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Comparable spec projectors that came out more than two years ago have projector brightness of between 300 ANSI lumens and 12,000 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the Epson PowerLite S17 has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the PowerLite S17.

If you would prefer a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the NEC NP-M282 ($599.00) (2,800 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Very Low Number of Colours

The lowest number of colours of projectors of this age and type is 1M and the highest is 1,100M. The PowerLite S17 has one of the lower numbers of colours (only 1.07 million) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Lamp Power

With a lamp power of only 200 Watts, the PowerLite S17 has a quite small lamp power compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec. The smallest lamp power of data projectors of a comparable age and type to the PowerLite S17 is 15W and the biggest is 840W.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Colour Light Output

At only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the PowerLite S17 has a fairly dim colour light output compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar type and age to the PowerLite S17. The colour light outputs of projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PowerLite S17 range from 600 ANSI lumens to 4,800 ANSI lumens, and the average colour light output is 3,000 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim White Light Output

The average white light output of projectors of this type and age is 3,000 ANSI lumens, and the white light outputs range from 600 ANSI lumens to 4,800 ANSI lumens. At only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the PowerLite S17 has a quite dim white light output compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the PowerLite S17.

Chart Edit

Chart Edit

Fairly High Power Consumption During PowerSave

At 234 Watts, the PowerLite S17 has a fairly high power consumption during PowerSave compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago. The average power consumption during PowerSave of similar spec multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the PowerLite S17 is 170W.
