We checked 614 expert and user reviews for Epson projectors and found that on average Epson has good ratings compared to other manufacturers. We also found that Epson has good ratings specifically for its 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors.

Supports Wi-Fi

The Powerlite W28+ supports wi-Fi, unlike most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the Powerlite W28+ which do not support wi-Fi.

Alternative projectors which support wi-Fi currently available that you might want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Epson EX7235 ($649.97).

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might want to consider including the Epson EB-945H.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The Powerlite W28+ does not support 3D, although it is worth noting that most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type also do not support 3D.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support 3D to this multimedia projector and we think the Epson Home Cinema 600 ($355.34) which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Very Low RMS Rated Power

Across all the projectors that have been on the market for more than a year the RMS rated powers range from 2W to 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 12W. With an RMS rated power of only 2 Watts, the Powerlite W28+ has a fairly low RMS rated power compared to most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the Powerlite W28+.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantity

The Powerlite W28+ is a one VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity data projector. Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been around for more than a year have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

5 Other reasons to consider the Epson Powerlite W28+

Released Over a Year Ago

Epson released the Powerlite W28+ over a year ago.

Average Noise Level

At 37 decibels, the Powerlite W28+ has a relatively typical noise level compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out more than a year ago.

We compared this projector to all the other 37dB noise level projectors and we think the Epson PowerLite W29 ($550.00) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you are not concerned about having a louder noise level then you might also want to consider the EB-98H (37dB), or the EB-965H (37dB) both from Epson.

1280 X 800 Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the Powerlite W28+ is 1280 x 800. That's over three times the resolution of the most common supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA).

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the Epson Powerlite W28+ is WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than a XGA (1024x768) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

Chart Edit

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Powerlite W28+ has a relatively average projector brightness compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the Powerlite W28+.

We compared this data projector to all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq MH680, and the Acer X152H ($627.76) is also worth considering.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the LV-X310ST (3,100 ANSI lumens), or the WX310ST (3,100 ANSI lumens) both from Canon.
