7 Reasons For for Choosing the Epson PowerLite 1761W

Wi-Fi

The Epson PowerLite 1761W supports Wi-Fi (as does the Vivitek Qumi Q7), however the Acer Home H6510BD, the Benq MX819ST and the Optoma EH415ST do not support this feature. More ...

Wi-Fi projectors can connect to your local WiFi network which means that you display content from other devices connected to the same network.

Wi-Fi projectors allow you display content from other devices connected to the same network without the need to use a cable.

Ceiling Mountable

The Epson PowerLite 1761W is a ceiling mountable projector, however the Acer Home H6510BD, the Benq MX819ST, the Optoma EH415ST and the Vivitek Qumi Q7 are not. More ...

'Ceiling Mountable' indicates whether the projector is capable of being mounted to the ceiling or not.

Ceiling mounting is the best way of assuring the projector always has a clear line of sight to the projecting surface.

Better Kagoo Score

The Epson PowerLite 1761W has received a Kagoo Score of 85, but the Acer Home H6510BD scored 82, the Benq MX819ST scored 84, the Optoma EH415ST scored 81 and the Vivitek Qumi Q7 scored 79.

More Shops Are Selling It

A greater number of retailers increases the price competition amongst retailers for this projector and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.

One More Award

The Epson PowerLite 1761W has received 1 award, however the Acer Home H6510BD has received no awards, the Benq MX819ST has received no awards and the Optoma EH415ST has received no awards.

Expert Reviews Are Appreciably Better

The average expert review score of the Epson PowerLite 1761W is 95% based on 2 reviews, but the average rating of the Vivitek Qumi Q7 is 80% (based on 12 reviews).

Better Brand

Epson projectors have an average rating of 95%, however Acer only has an average rating of 85.8%, Benq only has an average rating of 93.2%, Optoma only has an average rating of 93.4% and Vivitek only has an average rating of 74.3%.

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the Epson PowerLite 1761W

Lower Resolution

The Epson PowerLite 1761W has a projector native resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA), and so is the Vivitek Qumi Q7, which is half as high resolution as the Acer Home H6510BD and the Optoma EH415ST (1920 x 1080 (1080p)). More ...

The projector native resolution is the resolution of image that the projector is able to produce. The resolution is expressed as the number of horizontal pixels by the number of vertical pixels.

A projector with a higher native resolution will be able to display more detailed images such as HD content.

Louder Noise Level

The Epson PowerLite 1761W has a noise level of 40dB, but the Acer Home H6510BD is a 34dB projector (6dB quieter), the Benq MX819ST is a 32dB projector (8dB quieter), the Optoma EH415ST is a 37dB projector (3dB quieter) and the Vivitek Qumi Q7 is a 38dB projector (2dB quieter). More ...

The noise level of the projector is the amount of noise that the projector makes (caused by the cooling fan inside the projector) when it is running.

A lower noise level means that the projector will be quieter when it is running. This means that you will be able to appreciate the quieter parts of films better without the background noise of the projector running. Most projectors have a noise level between 30 and 40Db, which rates them as 'very quiet' by Industial Noise Control - on par with low bird calls, or a quiet rural area. You can find more information here: http://www.industrialnoisecontrol.com/comparative-noise-examples.htm.

Half As High Contrast Ratio

The Epson PowerLite 1761W has a low (2000:1) contrast ratio, however the Acer Home H6510BD has a medium contrast ratio and the Benq MX819ST, the Optoma EH415ST and the Vivitek Qumi Q7 have a high contrast ratio. More ...

The contrast ratio is the ratio between the brightness of the brightest white and the brightness of darkest black that the projector can produce.

A higher contrast ratio means that the projector can produce images with greater contrast so that they will appear more vivid.

Dimmer Projector Brightness

Epson PowerLite 1761W is only 2 ANSI lumens brightness. That's 400 ANSI lumens dimmer than the Acer Home H6510BD and the Benq MX819ST (3,000 ANSI Lumens), 1,600 ANSI lumens dimmer than the Optoma EH415ST (4,200 ANSI Lumens) and 1,800 ANSI lumens brighter than the Vivitek Qumi Q7 (800 ANSI Lumens). More ...

'Projector Brightness' is how bright the bulb in the projector is, measured in 'lumens'.

A brighter bulb means that the projector will be seen clearer, and can project to surfaces father away without appearing too dark.

27% Smaller Bulb Power

The Epson PowerLite 1761W is a 205W lamp power projector. That's 5W smaller than the Acer Home H6510BD (210W), 15W bigger than the Benq MX819ST (190W) and 75W smaller than the Optoma EH415ST (280W). More ...

'Bulb Power' denotes how powerful the bulb in the projector is, measured in watts (W).

A more powerful bulb means that the projector will be seen clearer, and can project to surfaces father away without appearing too dark.

Significantly Shorter Service Life of Lamp

The Epson PowerLite 1761W has a service life of lamp of 4h, and so does the Acer Home H6510BD. That's 500h shorter than the Benq MX819ST (4,500h), 3,000h shorter than the Optoma EH415ST (7,000h) and 26,000h shorter than the Vivitek Qumi Q7 (30,000h). More ...

'Service Life' indicates how long the lamp in the projector will last before it needs to be replaced, measured in hours.

A longer life lamp means you'll need to replace it far less frequently, saving you money.

Does Not Support Full HD

The Epson PowerLite 1761W does not support full HD (As does the the Vivitek Qumi Q7), but the Acer Home H6510BD, the Benq MX819ST and the Optoma EH415ST support this feature. More ...

Full HD projectors can display full HD content such as films and HD TV.

Full HD projectors can display full HD content such as films and HD TV.

$50 More Expensive

The Epson PowerLite 1761W is more expensive than the Acer Home H6510BD by $50.

Over Three Years Older

The Epson PowerLite 1761W is older than the Acer Home H6510BD by nine months, older than the Benq MX819ST by 13 months, older than the Optoma EH415ST by three years and older than the Vivitek Qumi Q7 by 22 months.

Hugely Lower User Review Score

The Epson PowerLite 1761W only has an average user rating of 67%, but the Benq MX819ST has an average user rating of 80% (based on 8 reviews) and the Vivitek Qumi Q7 has an average user rating of 100% (based on 1 review).

6 Reasons For for Choosing the Vivitek Qumi Q7

High (30000:1) Contrast Ratio

The Vivitek Qumi Q7 has a high (30000:1) contrast ratio (as are the Benq MX819ST and the Optoma EH415ST), however the Acer Home H6510BD only has a medium contrast ratio and the Epson PowerLite 1761W only has a low contrast ratio. More ...

The contrast ratio is the ratio between the brightness of the brightest white and the brightness of darkest black that the projector can produce.

A higher contrast ratio means that the projector can produce images with greater contrast so that they will appear more vivid.

3D

The Vivitek Qumi Q7 supports 3D, and so do the Acer Home H6510BD, the Benq MX819ST and the Optoma EH415ST, whereas the Epson PowerLite 1761W does not. More ...

A 3D projector allows you to view the huge range of 3D films and content that is now available.

Wi-Fi

The Vivitek Qumi Q7 supports Wi-Fi (as does the Epson PowerLite 1761W), however the Acer Home H6510BD, the Benq MX819ST and the Optoma EH415ST do not support this feature. More ...

Wi-Fi projectors can connect to your local WiFi network which means that you display content from other devices connected to the same network.

Overall Reviews Are a Little Better

The average overall review score of the Vivitek Qumi Q7 is 88% based on 13 reviews, but the average rating of the Benq MX819ST is 80% (based on 9 reviews) and the average rating of the Epson PowerLite 1761W is 87% (based on 5 reviews).

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the Vivitek Qumi Q7

Lower Resolution

The Vivitek Qumi Q7 has a projector native resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA), and so is the Epson PowerLite 1761W, which is half as high resolution as the Acer Home H6510BD and the Optoma EH415ST (1920 x 1080 (1080p)). More ...

The projector native resolution is the resolution of image that the projector is able to produce. The resolution is expressed as the number of horizontal pixels by the number of vertical pixels.

A projector with a higher native resolution will be able to display more detailed images such as HD content.

Louder Noise Level

Most projectors have a noise level between 30 and 40Db, which rates them as 'very quiet' by Industial Noise Control - on par with low bird calls, or a quiet rural area. You can find more information here: http://www.industrialnoisecontrol.com/comparative-noise-examples.htm.
