6 Reasons For

Average Expert Reviews

This data projector received a score of 70 out of 100 from multimedia projector expert review site PC Mag.

Excellent Owner Reviews

People who bought this multimedia projector rated this multimedia projector as superb on average.

Epson Projectors Have Good Reviews

10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors built by Epson have good ratings on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors) and found that Epson also has good ratings across its entire range.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Epson VS330 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VS330.

Other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might also want to consider include because of it's better review score, the NEC NP-M282 ($599.00).

1400 X 1050 (SXGA+) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Epson VS330 is 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+). That's over four times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this Epson projector). This projector also support graphics resolutions of 1280 x 960, 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1152 x 864 (XGA+), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 1280 x 800 (WXGA) and 1440 x 900 (WXGA+). Across all data projectors of a similar age and type to the VS330 the best resolution is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Chart Edit

Very Light

With a weight of only 2.3 kilograms, the Epson VS330 is fairly light compared to most of the other data projectors that were released around the same time as the VS330. The weights of projectors that were released more than two years ago range from 360g to 54kg.

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Epson VS330 does not support 3D image projection, although keep in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VS330 also do not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Epson VS330 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the VS330 also do not support Full HD projection.

It is worth considering alternative multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Epson 1980WU ($1,097.99).

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Epson VS330 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the VS330 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the PowerLite 1222 ($695.00), or the 1985WU ($1,888.56) both from Epson or the Benq W1500 which is also higher rated.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Projectors of this type and age have projector brightness of between 300 ANSI lumens and 20,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,400 ANSI lumens. The Epson VS330 has one of the dimmer projector brightness (only 2,700 ANSI lumens) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth looking at include the NEC NP-M282 ($599.00) (2,800 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite Low RMS Rated Power

The lowest RMS rated power of data projectors that were released around the same time as the VS330 is 1W and the highest is 20W. When compared to other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago that we have checked, the RMS rated power of the Epson VS330 of only 1 Watt is one of the lowest.

Chart Edit

At only 200 Watts, the Epson VS330 has a fairly small lamp power compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age. The average lamp power of projectors that are a similar age to the VS330 is 240W.

Chart Edit

Projectors of this age and spec have white light outputs of between 600 ANSI lumens and 4,800 ANSI lumens, and the average white light output is 3,000 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit
