9 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The Epson EX5230 does not support 3D, although keep in mind that most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the EX5230 also do not support 3D.

We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also support 3D including the Epson Home Cinema 600 ($355.34) which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Full HD

The Epson EX5230 does not support full HD, although this is within the context that most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the EX5230 also do not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most projectors of a comparable spec and age to the EX5230 do not support wi-Fi. The Epson EX5230 is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Epson EX7235 ($649.97) which also has a higher rating.

Quite Loud Noise Level

The Epson EX5230 has a quite loud noise level (37 decibels) compared to most of the other data projectors of this spec and age. The noise levels of 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EX5230 range from 27dB to 47dB, and the average noise level is 34dB.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 37dB noise level projectors currently available including the PowerLite X27 ($419.99), or the EX7235 ($649.97) both from Epson which has better reviews.

If you are not concerned about having a louder noise level then you might also want to look at the Epson EB-W29 (37dB).

3 Other reasons to consider the Epson EX5230

Released Over a Year Ago

This multimedia projector has been on the market for over a year.

Average Projector Brightness

The Epson EX5230 has a fairly average projector brightness (3,500 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for more than a year.

We compared all the other 3,500 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this multimedia projector and we think the Epson 965H ($840.74) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to consider the Hitachi CPWX3541WN (3,700 ANSI lumens), or the Panasonic PT-VW355N ($1,226.95) (4,000 ANSI lumens).
