10 Reasons For

Epson Has Good Data Projector Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all Epson multimedia projectors and also specifically for Epson 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors and found that in both cases Epson had good ratings compared to other brands.

Good Product Quality

Two Epson EB-W28 reviewers mentioned that the Epson EB-W28 was good quality. In August this year Ian Gardner said on Amazon “Excellent quality projection”. Michael Cotton said in his review “Compact, relatively light weight, good picture over large distance, speakers included with reasonable sound quality- just the job for a 'travelling trainer' like me”.

Easy to Use

One customer who purchased the Epson EB-W28 considered that it was easy to setup. In August this year Ian Gardner mentioned in his Epson EB-W28 review on Amazon “Easy to set up and use” and rated it 5 stars.

Good Size

One Epson EB-W28 owner who purchased the product considered that it was compact. Michael Cotton said on Amazon “Compact, relatively light weight, good picture over large distance, speakers included with reasonable sound quality- just the job for a 'travelling trainer' like me”.

Good Sound Quality

One Epson EB-W28 owner who purchased this projectors thought it had good sound quality. Michael Cotton said in his Epson EB-W28 review “Compact, relatively light weight, good picture over large distance, speakers included with reasonable sound quality- just the job for a 'travelling trainer' like me”.

Supports 3D

The Epson EB-W28 supports 3D, as do most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Epson EB-W28 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the EB-W28 also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this multimedia projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Infocus IN116A[plb_2100766_price] is also worth considering.

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the Epson EB-W28 is WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than a XGA (1024x768) data projector, which is the most common resolution. Across all 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years the worst resolution is SVGA (800x600) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

Quite High Vertical Synchronization (max)

At 240 kilohertz, the Epson EB-W28 has a fairly high vertical synchronization (max) compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the EB-W28. Across all the multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago the vertical synchronization (max)s range from 120kHz to 240kHz, and the average vertical synchronization (max) is 140kHz.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp

Across all the multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years the service life of lamps range from 2,000h to 30,000h. At 5,000 hours, the Epson EB-W28 has a fairly long service life of lamp compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the EB-W28.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The Epson EB-W28 does not support full HD, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out more than two years ago also do not support full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which also support full HD to this data projector and we think the PJD7820HD[pl_1536139_price], the PRO8600[pl_1596542_price], or the PJD8633[pl_1597774_price] all from Viewsonic which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Epson EB-W28 does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the EB-W28 also do not support wi-Fi.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Optoma EX400[plb_2110318_price], or the Epson EB-Z11000[plb_2549617_price].

Very Small Digital Zoom

The smallest digital zoom of data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the EB-W28 is 1.1x and the biggest is 12x. With a digital zoom of only 1.2 times zoom factor, the Epson EB-W28 has a quite small digital zoom compared to most of the other projectors of this age and type.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level

The noise levels of 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the EB-W28 range from 26dB to 40dB. The Epson EB-W28 has one of the louder noise levels (37 decibels) amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

Other 37dB noise level data projectors currently available which you might want to look at include because of it's better review score, the EH-TW5200[pl_1732117_price], or the PowerLite Home Cinema 2030[pl_2254510_price] both from Epson.
