8 Reasons For

Epson Has Good Data Projector Reviews

Epson 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors have good reviews on average and across all projectors Epson is one of the superior manufacturers.

Supports WiFi Connectivity

The Powerlite W28+ supports WiFi connectivity. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the Powerlite W28+ do not support WiFi connectivity.

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

It is worth also looking at other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Hitachi CPX2541WN ($436.99).
