Epson PowerLite 97H Projector Review-XGA 3LCD Classroom Projector

8 Reasons For

One Industry Award

Projectorreviews.com gave this multimedia projector a "Hot Product" award.

Good Brand

10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors manufactured by Epson have good ratings on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors) and found that Epson also has good ratings across its entire range.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PowerLite 97H has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PowerLite 97H also have a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the H9505BD, or the H6517ST ($610.94) both from Acer or the Epson Home Cinema 600 ($355.34) which has better reviews.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the Epson PowerLite 97H is 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 Epson projector). This data projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 1280 x 960, 1366 x 768, 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the PowerLite 97H the resolution ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The service life of lamp (economic mode)s of projectors of this age and type range from 1,000h to 30,000h. The Epson PowerLite 97H has a fairly long service life of lamp (economic mode) (10,000 hours) compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the PowerLite 97H.

Chart Edit

The Epson PowerLite 97H is a two audio (L,R) in projector.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

10 Reasons Against

Inferior Remote Control

One customer said in their reviews that the Epson PowerLite 97H did not have a good remote control. Projectorreviews.com mentioned in their Epson PowerLite 97H review “Remote can be difficult to operate in a dark room, since it has no backlight, dust filter that must be maintained”.

Inferior Picture Quality

One person mentioned that it did not have a good contrast ratio. Projectorreviews.com said “A relatively high black level and a modest contrast ratio means this projector is not”.

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PowerLite 97H, the PowerLite 97H does not support 3D.

Alternative projectors which also support 3D that you might want to consider include the H6517ST ($610.94), or the H6517ST both from Acer or the NEC NP-M363W ($895.00).

Does Not Support Full HD

The PowerLite 97H does not support full HD. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the PowerLite 97H also do not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in alternative multimedia projectors which also support full HD including the NP-M403X ($779.99), the PH1202HL, or the NP-M363W ($895.00) all from NEC which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most projectors of a comparable age and type to the PowerLite 97H do not support wi-Fi. The Epson PowerLite 97H is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the Powerlite W28+, or the EX7235 ($649.97) both from Epson or the Hitachi CP-AW2505 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

At only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the PowerLite 97H has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the PowerLite 97H. The projector brightnesss of multimedia projectors that were released one year ago range from 600 ANSI lumens to 12,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,600 ANSI lumens.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 2,700 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the EB-S27, or the EB-X27 both from Epson or the Hitachi CP-TW2505 ($1,392.99).

If this Epson projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to consider the H6517ST (3,000 ANSI lumens), the H9505BD (3,000 ANSI lumens), or the P1500 ($543.99) (3,000 ANSI lumens) all from Acer which also has a higher rating.

Very Small Bulb Power

The smallest bulb power of similar spec data projectors that were released more than a year ago is 170W and the biggest is 420W. The Epson PowerLite 97H has one of the smaller bulb powers (only 200 Watts) amongst data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Dim White Light Output

Comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the PowerLite 97H have white light outputs of between 2,700 ANSI lumens and 4,100 ANSI lumens. With a white light output of only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the Epson PowerLite 97H has one of the dimmer white light outputs amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Colour Light Output

Similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the PowerLite 97H have colour light outputs of between 2,100 ANSI lumens and 4,100 ANSI lumens, and the average colour light output is 3,100 ANSI lumens. At only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the Epson PowerLite 97H has a fairly dim colour light output compared to most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the PowerLite 97H.

Average Noise Level
