12 Reasons For

Good Expert Reviews

Projector expert review site digitalmediaandit.com scored this Epson projector 80 out of 100.

Epson Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

Epson 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good ratings on average and across all projectors Epson is one of the superior brands.

Supports Full HD

The Epson EH-TW5100 supports full HD, unlike most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the EH-TW5100 which do not support full HD.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support full HD to this multimedia projector and we think the Acer S1283[plb_2575478_price] is also worth considering.

Supports 3D

The EH-TW5100 supports 3D, as do most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the EH-TW5100.
