5 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Poor

Chart

Unacceptable Noise Level

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi to this projector and we think the Epson EB-Z9900W[plb_2549632_price], the Elmo BOXi MP-350[plb_2578320_price], or the Benq GP20[plb_2231335_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when this Epson projector was released.

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 2,300 ANSI lumens, the Epson Home Cinema 3020+ has a fairly average projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors that have been around for more than two years.

We compared all the other 2,300 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors to this multimedia projector and we think the Epson EH-TW6100W[plb_1797340_price], and the Benq W700+[plb_1561678_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the PowerLite Home Cinema 5030ub[pl_2301495_price] (2,400 ANSI lumens), the EH-TW9200[pl_2826896_price] (2,400 ANSI lumens), or the 5020UB[pl_1992731_price] (2,400 ANSI lumens) all from Epson which also has a higher rating.
