5 Reasons For

Epson Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

We checked 614 expert and owner reviews for Epson projectors and found that on average Epson has good ratings. We also found that Epson has good ratings specifically for its 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors.

Supports Full HD

The EB-Z9870U supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the EB-Z9870U do not support full HD.

It may also be worth considering one of the other projectors which support full HD currently available including because of it's better review score, the PJD7820HD[pl_1536139_price], the PRO8600[pl_1596542_price], or the PJD8633[pl_1597774_price] all from Viewsonic.

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 7,500 ANSI lumens, the EB-Z9870U has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of this age and type. Across all the 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the EB-Z9870U the projector brightnesss range from 700 ANSI lumens to 11,000 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

WUXGA (1920x1200) Projector Native Resolution

The EB-Z9870U has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a XGA (1024x768) projector, which is the most common resolution.

This data projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is actually the best resolution across all 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

A SVGA (800x600) projector native resolution is the worst resolution amongst similar types of data projector.

Fairly Big Bulb Power

At 380 Watts, the EB-Z9870U has a quite big bulb power compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the EB-Z9870U. The smallest bulb power of comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EB-Z9870U is 190W and the biggest is 2,400W.

12 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for more than two years have a built-in speaker(s), however the Epson EB-Z9870U does not have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Infocus IN112A[plb_2178166_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D

The EB-Z9870U does not support 3D. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to the EB-Z9870U do support 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for more than two years, the Epson EB-Z9870U does not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other projectors which also support wi-Fi to this projector and we think the Optoma EX400[plb_2110318_price], or the Epson EB-Z11000[plb_2549617_price] is also worth considering.

Very Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The service life of lamp (economic mode)s of data projectors that came out around the same time as the EB-Z9870U range from 3,000h to 20,000h. The Epson EB-Z9870U has one of the shorter service life of lamp (economic mode)s (only 4,000 hours) amongst projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level

At 38 decibels, the EB-Z9870U has a fairly loud noise level compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the EB-Z9870U. Across all the multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the EB-Z9870U the noise levels range from 26dB to 40dB.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Ports Quantity

The Epson EB-Z9870U is a one USB 2.0 ports quantity data projector. Most of the other data projectors of a similar type and age to the EB-Z9870U have between one and three USB 2.0 ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Only Two VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

The EB-Z9870U is a two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity data projector.

Chart Edit

Only One Component Video (YPbPr/YCbCr) in

Most data projectors that have been available for more than two years have one component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) in, including the EB-Z9870U which has one component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) in.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level (economic Mode)

The EB-Z9870U has one of the louder noise level (economic mode)s (35 decibels) amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. Across all the 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the EB-Z9870U the noise level (economic mode)s range from 26dB to 35dB.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Colour Light Output

With a colour light output of only 7,500 ANSI lumens, the Epson EB-Z9870U has a fairly dim colour light output compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar age and spec to the EB-Z9870U. The average colour light output of similar spec data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the EB-Z9870U is 9,100 ANSI lumens, and the colour light outputs range from 7,500 ANSI lumens to 10,000 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Very Dim White Light Output

The white light outputs of similar spec projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the EB-Z9870U range from 7,500 ANSI lumens to 10,000 ANSI lumens, and the average white light output is 9,100 ANSI lumens. The EB-Z9870U has one of the dimmer white light outputs (only 7,500 ANSI lumens) amongst similar spec projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The average weight of projectors of this age and type is 6.5kg, and the weights range from 1.3kg to 27kg. With a weight of 25 kilograms, the EB-Z9870U is fairly heavy compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the EB-Z9870U.
