Has a Built-In Speaker

The Epson VS240 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VS240.

It may also be worth considering one of the other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the EB-X31[pl_3078403_price], or the EB-S31[pl_3078402_price] both from Epson which has better reviews.

Alternative data projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might also want to look at include the Epson VS340[plb_3043984_price].

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

At 10,000 hours, the Epson VS240 has a quite long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the VS240. Multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the VS240 have service life of lamp in economic mode of between 3,500h and 10,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 8,400h.

Chart Edit

Two USB 2.0 Ports

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on projectors that have been available for a comparable time to it.

Chart Edit

Light

Projectors of this age and spec have weights of between 1.5kg and 4kg. At only 2.4 kilograms, the Epson VS240 is fairly light compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VS240.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most data projectors of a comparable age and type to the VS240 do not support 3D image projection. The Epson VS240 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection which you might want to look at including the Infocus IN118HDXC[plb_2945391_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Epson VS240 does not support Full HD projection, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the VS240 also do not support Full HD projection.

There are a number of other projectors which also support Full HD projection which you might want to consider including the Infocus IN118HDXC[plb_2945391_price] which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the VS240, the Epson VS240 does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the Epson EB-W31[plb_3193910_price] is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only SVGA (800x600) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the Epson VS240 is SVGA (800x600). That's 39% less resolution than a XGA (1024x768) projector, which is the most common resolution. Across all multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the VS240 the best resolution is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) and the worst is nHD (640x360).

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level

The average noise level of projectors of a comparable age and type to the VS240 is 35dB, and the noise levels range from 29dB to 39dB. At 37 decibels, the Epson VS240 has a quite loud noise level compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released one year ago.

If you are not bothered about having a louder noise level then you might also want to consider the Infocus IN118HDXC[plb_2945391_price] (32dB) which also has a higher rating.

2 Other reasons to consider the Epson VS240

Released Over a Year Ago

This Epson projector has been on the market for over a year.

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Epson VS240 has a fairly standard projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for more than a year.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the EB-W31[pl_3193910_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens), the EB-S31[pl_3078402_price] (3,300 ANSI lumens), or the EB-X31[pl_3078403_price] (3,300 ANSI lumens) all from Epson which also has a higher rating.
