Epson Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

Epson is one of the better rated multimedia projector brands according to average reviews from users and experts, and Epson also has good reviews for its 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors.


One person mentioned in their reviews that it was strong and durable. Expert review site wrote in their Epson EB-425W review “The EB-425W has a rugged plastic body”. One person who bought the product thought it was well made. Expert review site mentioned in their Epson EB-425W review “Epson remains a solid supporter of LCD technology” .

Good Size

One Epson EB-425W owner who bought the Epson EB-425W reckoned that it was a good body shape.

Supports Wi-Fi

The EB-425W supports wi-Fi, unlike most of the other projectors that have been around for around the same time as the EB-425W which do not support wi-Fi.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors which support wi-Fi and we think because of it's better review score, the Epson BrightLink 436Wi[plb_1875520_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the EB-425W, the EB-425W has a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might want to look at including because of it's better review score, the NP-VE281X[pl_1495517_price], or the NP-M271X[pl_1525269_price] both from NEC.

This multimedia projector has a projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many projectors of a comparable age and type to it.

Chart Edit

At 16 Watts, the EB-425W has a quite high RMS rated power compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago. Similar spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago have RMS rated powers of between 0.5W and 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 11W.

When compared to other multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the EB-425W that we have assessed the noise level (economic mode) of, the EB-425W's noise level (economic mode) of only 28 decibels is one of the quietest. The average noise level (economic mode) of comparable spec projectors that came out around the same time as the EB-425W is 30dB.

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The Epson EB-425W does not support 3D, although this is within the context that most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years also do not support 3D.

Other projectors which also support 3D that you might also want to look at include the Optoma TW610STi[plb_1749808_price], or the Epson V11H475020[plb_2123586_price].

Does Not Support Full HD

Most multimedia projectors of this type and age do not support full HD. The EB-425W is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support full HD including the Hitachi CP-WX8255A[plb_1884022_price], or the Infocus IN3118HD[plb_2221772_price] which also has a higher rating.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Across all the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the EB-425W the projector brightnesss range from 100 ANSI lumens to 8,000 ANSI lumens. The Epson EB-425W has one of the dimmer projector brightnesss (only 2,500 ANSI lumens) amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the PowerLite Home Cinema 500[pl_2231990_price] (2,600 ANSI lumens), or the VS220[pl_2185658_price] (2,700 ANSI lumens) both from Epson or the Sony VPL-DW127[plb_2512334_price] (2,600 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

2 Other reasons to consider the Epson EB-425W

Released Over Two Years Ago

It was over two years ago when Epson released the EB-425W.

Average Noise Level

The Epson EB-425W has a fairly standard noise level (35 decibels) compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the EB-425W.

We compared all the other 35dB noise level data projectors to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the NEC NP-VE281X[plb_1495517_price] is also worth considering.

Alternative data projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the NEC VE281[plb_1473677_price] (35dB).
