Good Brand

Epson also has good ratings specifically within its 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors range compared to other manufacturers. 98% of those that bought a Epson multimedia projector would recommend the product that they bought to other buyers.


Networking

Supports Wi-Fi

The EB Z9870U supports Wi-Fi, unlike most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as this projector which do not support Wi-Fi.

We compared all the other data projectors which support Wi-Fi to this multimedia projector and we think cheaper data projectors such as the EB-Z11000[pl_2549617_price], and the EB-Z11005[pl_2549634_price] both from Epson is also worth considering.
