7 Reasons For

Epson Projectors Have Good Reviews

On average Epson 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good ratings compared to other manufacturers as do all projectors built by Epson.

Supports Wi-Fi

The EB-421i supports wi-Fi, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors of this age and spec do not support wi-Fi.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Sony VPL-SX631 ($1,132.17).

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other projectors of this age and spec, the EB-421i has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the VPL-SX236 ($829.95), or the VPL-SX226 both from Sony is also worth considering.

Three Headphone Outputss

The EB-421i has more headphone outputss than most of the projectors of a similar age and spec to the EB-421i. Most of the similar spec projectors that were released one year ago only have between one and two headphone outputss, however this data projector has three headphone outputss.

Chart Edit

Very Light

Across all the data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the EB-421i the weights range from 3.4kg to 6.7kg, and the average weight is 5.2kg. With a weight of only 3.9 kilograms, the EB-421i is one of the lighter 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the EB-421i amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rates

This multimedia projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data rates, which is the most frequently found ethernet LAN data rates on projectors of a comparable type and age to it.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

The EB-421i has one of the quieter noise level (economic mode)s (only 28 decibels) amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. Projectors that have been available for more than a year have noise level (economic mode)s of between 28dB and 36dB.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other similar spec projectors that have been on the market for more than a year, the EB-421i does not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

The Epson EB-421i does not support full HD, although this is within the context that most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the EB-421i also do not support full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a full HD and we think the Sony VPL-SW636C is also worth considering.

Very Dim Projector Brightness

The projector brightnesss of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the EB-421i range from 2,500 ANSI lumens to 6,000 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 2,500 ANSI lumens, the Epson EB-421i has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the EB-421i.

If you want a multimedia projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the VPL-SX226 (2,800 ANSI lumens), or the VPL-SX236 ($829.95) (3,300 ANSI lumens) both from Sony.

Very Small Bulb Power

The average bulb power of projectors of this spec and age is 270W. With a bulb power of only 200 Watts, the EB-421i has one of the smaller bulb powers amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Projector Brightness (economic Mode)

The projector brightness (economic mode)s of projectors of this age and type range from 1,900 ANSI lumens to 15,000 ANSI lumens. The EB-421i has one of the dimmer projector brightness (economic mode)s (only 2,000 ANSI lumens) amongst comparable spec multimedia projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Only One HDMI Ports Quantity

The EB-421i is a one HDMI ports quantity projector. Most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the EB-421i have one HDMI ports quantity.

Chart Edit

Very Small Matrix Size

The matrix sizes of multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the EB-421i range from 0.55" to 0.75". The EB-421i has one of the smaller matrix sizes (only 0.55 inches) amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.
