9 Reasons For

Good Brand

We checked 614 expert and user reviews for Epson multimedia projectors and found that on average Epson has good reviews compared to other manufacturers. We also found that Epson has good reviews specifically for its 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Epson 98H has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out more than a year ago.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think because of it's better review score, the Epson EX7235[plb_3060914_price] is also worth considering.

Most of the comparable spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the 98H only have one component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) in, however this multimedia projector has two component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) ins.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the 98H, the Epson 98H does not support 3D.

Other data projectors which also support 3D that you might want to look at include the Epson Home Cinema 600[plb_3077179_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Full HD

Most projectors of a comparable spec and age to the 98H do not support full HD. The Epson 98H is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for more than a year, the Epson 98H does not support wi-Fi.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might want to look at including the Epson EX7235[plb_3060914_price] which also has a higher rating.

Fairly Loud Noise Level

Multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the 98H have noise levels of between 27dB and 47dB. The Epson 98H has one of the louder noise levels (37 decibels) amongst comparable spec multimedia projectors of this age.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other 37dB noise level data projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the EB-X27[pl_2896435_price], and the 965H[pl_2953833_price] both from Epson is also worth considering.

Very Small Bulb Power

The Epson 98H has one of the smaller bulb powers (only 200 Watts) amongst data projectors of this age. Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the 98H the bulb powers range from 170W to 420W, and the average bulb power is 240W.

3 Other reasons to consider the Epson 98H

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 Epson 98H has a fairly standard projector brightness compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the 98H.

We compared all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors to this data projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq MH680[plb_1998672_price], and the Epson PowerLite 955W[plb_2181186_price] is also worth considering.

If this 10000:1 contrast ratio projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the Canon LV-X310ST[plb_3919355_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens), or the Ricoh PJ WX2240[plb_3011875_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens).
