5 Reasons For

Epson Has Good Reviews for Its Data Projectors

We calculated the average reviews for all Epson data projectors and also specifically for Epson 16000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors and found that in both cases Epson had good reviews compared to other brands.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PowerLite 530 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other data projectors of this type and age.

There are a number of other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might also want to look at including the PowerLite 535W[pl_2896142_price], or the 536Wi[pl_2896146_price] both from Epson which has better reviews.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The Epson PowerLite 530 supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most frequently found supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this data projector). This Epson projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 1280 x 768, 1280 x 800, 1280 x 960, 1152 x 864 (XGA+), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

This projector's resolution (1600 x 1200 (UXGA)) is actually the best supported resolution amongst all 16000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PowerLite 530.

Amongst similar types of projector the worst supported resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption (PowerSave)

The PowerLite 530 has a quite low power consumption (PowerSave) (only 0.22 Watts) compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PowerLite 530. Across all the multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PowerLite 530 the power consumption (PowerSave)s range from 0.22W to 230W, and the average power consumption (PowerSave) is 110W.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other 16000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago, the PowerLite 530 does not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

Most data projectors of this age and type do not support full HD. The PowerLite 530 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

With a noise level of 37 decibels, the PowerLite 530 has a fairly loud noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago.

We compared all the other 37dB noise level data projectors to this projector and we think the PowerLite 535W[pl_2896142_price], and the 536Wi[pl_2896146_price] both from Epson which has better reviews is also worth considering.
