5 Reasons For

Good Brand

Epson is one of the better rated projector brands according to average reviews from experts and users, and Epson also has good ratings for its 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the PowerLite X21, the Epson PowerLite X21 has a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

Chart Edit

Two USB 2.0 Ports

Most similar spec data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PowerLite X21 have between one and three USB 2.0 ports, including the Epson PowerLite X21 which has two USB 2.0 ports.

The shortest lamp service life of comparable spec data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the PowerLite X21 is 500h, the longest is 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 6,300h. At 5,000 hours, the PowerLite X21 has a fairly long lamp service life compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to the PowerLite X21, the PowerLite X21 does not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the PowerLite X21, the PowerLite X21 does not support Full HD projection.

It is worth considering other projectors which also support Full HD projection including the NEC NP-M322[plb_2324544_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The PowerLite X21 does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the PowerLite X21 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might also want to consider include the PowerLite 1222[pl_2225031_price], or the 1985WU[pl_2785330_price] both from Epson or the Benq W1500[plb_1561671_price] which also has a higher rating.

Quite Loud Noise Level

The PowerLite X21 has one of the louder noise levels (37 decibels) amongst comparable spec multimedia projectors of this age. The quietest noise level of projectors that came out around the same time as the PowerLite X21 is 28dB, the loudest is 49dB, and the average noise level is 36dB.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 37dB noise level projectors currently available including the Epson EB-W18[plb_2069440_price] which has better reviews.

If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might want to look at the EB-W03[pl_2148096_price] (37dB), or the EB-X20[pl_2017453_price] (37dB) both from Epson.

3 Other reasons to consider the Epson PowerLite X21

Released Over Two Years Ago

It was over two years ago when this projector was released.

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,000 ANSI lumens, the PowerLite X21 has a relatively average projector brightness compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago.

We compared all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this data projector and we think the Benq MH680[plb_1998672_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to look at the NEC NP-M322[plb_2324544_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.
