9 Reasons For

Epson Projectors Have Good Reviews

On average Epson data projectors have good ratings compared to other brands as do all data projectors built by Epson.

Very Bright Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 7,000 ANSI lumens, the Epson G6870 XGA's projector brightness is one of the brightest amongst similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for more than a year. Data projectors that were released one year ago have projector brightnesss of between 37 ANSI lumens and 8,200 ANSI lumens.

If you would prefer a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the Panasonic PT-DX820BE[plb_3539043_price] (8,200 ANSI lumens).

1400 X 1050 (SXGA+) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the G6870 XGA is 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+). That's over four times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the G6870 XGA. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this projector. In addition, this multimedia projector support a supported graphics resolutions of 800 x 600 (SVGA) and 1280 x 1024 (SXGA). Across all data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the G6870 XGA the best resolution is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Very Bright Colour Light Output

With a colour light output of 7,000 ANSI lumens, the G6870 XGA has one of the brightest colour light outputs amongst similar spec multimedia projectors of this age. The dimmest colour light output of data projectors of a comparable age and type to the G6870 XGA is 1,500 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 7,000 ANSI lumens, and the average colour light output is 4,300 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Very Bright White Light Output

Data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the G6870 XGA have white light outputs of between 1,500 ANSI lumens and 7,000 ANSI lumens, and the average white light output is 4,300 ANSI lumens. At 7,000 ANSI lumens, the G6870 XGA has a very bright white light output compared to most of the other data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the G6870 XGA.

14 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

Most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for more than a year have a built-in speaker(s), however the G6870 XGA does not have a built-in speaker(s).

Alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might also want to consider include the LG PF1500G[plb_2896881_price].

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The G6870 XGA does not support wi-Fi, although this is within the context that most of the other data projectors that are a comparable age to the G6870 XGA also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the Vivitek Qumi Q6[plb_3137053_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
