Three Audio (L,R) Ins

The PowerLite 97 has more audio (L,R) ins than most of the 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PowerLite 97. Most of the comparable spec data projectors that were released around the same time as the PowerLite 97 only have between one and two audio (L,R) ins, however this Epson projector has three audio (L,R) ins.

Does Not Support Full HD

The PowerLite 97 does not support full HD. Most of the other similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the PowerLite 97 also do not support full HD.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the Benq W1300[plb_1998671_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

The PowerLite 97 does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the Benq W1500[plb_1561671_price], or the Epson PowerLite 1222[plb_2225031_price] is also worth considering.
