7 Reasons For

Epson Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

We checked 614 expert and user reviews for Epson data projectors and found that on average Epson has good reviews compared to other brands. We also found that Epson has good reviews specifically for its 12000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Nice Design

One Epson EH-TW490 owner who reviewed this projector reckoned that it was neat. Expert review site Homecinemachoice.com wrote in their Epson EH-TW490 review “Even arrives with a neat travelling case – in this regard” .

Good Size

One person who reviewed it wrote that it was compact. Homecinemachoice.com wrote in their Epson EH-TW490 review two years ago “Although called a 'home projector', Epson's EH-TW490 is compact, weighs only 2.4kg”.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EH-TW490, the Epson EH-TW490 has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 730HD[plb_2187387_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also support 3D including the Optoma HD83[plb_1763299_price], or the Epson Home Cinema 3000[plb_3060356_price] which also has a higher rating.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support full HD to this projector and we think the Optoma HD83[plb_1763299_price], or the Epson Home Cinema 3000[plb_3060356_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The EH-TW490 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other similar spec projectors that have been available for more than two years also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support wi-Fi to this projector and we think the Gigabyte BRIX[plb_2116585_price] is also worth considering.

With a projector brightness of 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Epson EH-TW490 has a pretty standard projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors of this age and spec.

We compared this projector to all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 730HD[plb_2187387_price] is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the Optoma HD26[plb_2415611_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
