8 Reasons For

Good Brand

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

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PowerLite W29 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the PowerLite W29 also have a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the PowerLite W29 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 projector). In addition, this data projector support supported graphics resolutionss of 1280 x 960, 1366 x 768, 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). The best resolution of all 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out more than a year ago is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

At 10,000 hours, the PowerLite W29 has a quite long service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the PowerLite W29. The shortest service life of lamp (economic mode) of projectors that were released one year ago is 1,000h, the longest is 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp (economic mode) is 7,100h.

Two Component Video (YPbPr/YCbCr) Ins

The PowerLite W29 has more component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) ins than most of the 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than a year ago. Most of the projectors that were released one year ago only have one component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) in, however this Epson projector has two component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) ins.

Chart Edit

Two Audio (L,R) Ins

Most data projectors of this type and age have between one and two audio (L,R) ins, including the Epson PowerLite W29 which has two audio (L,R) ins.

The average noise level (economic mode) of projectors of a comparable age and spec to the PowerLite W29 is 30dB. At only 29 decibels, the PowerLite W29 has a quite quiet noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PowerLite W29.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

Most multimedia projectors of this spec and age do not support 3D. The PowerLite W29 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other projectors of this age and spec, the Epson PowerLite W29 does not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The PowerLite W29 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the PowerLite W29 also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level

With a noise level of 37 decibels, the Epson PowerLite W29 has a fairly loud noise level compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the PowerLite W29. Across all the multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the PowerLite W29 the noise levels range from 27dB to 47dB, and the average noise level is 34dB.

We compared all the other 37dB noise level data projectors to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the PowerLite X27[pl_2896329_price], and the 965H[pl_2953833_price] both from Epson is also worth considering.

3 Other reasons to consider the Epson PowerLite W29

Released Over Two Years Ago

This multimedia projector was released over two years ago.

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

The PowerLite W29 has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most frequently found projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768).

Chart Edit

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the PowerLite W29 has a pretty typical projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the PowerLite W29.

We compared this data projector to all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think the Benq MH680[plb_1998672_price], and the Epson PowerLite 955W[plb_2181186_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this 10000:1 contrast ratio projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to consider the Canon LV-X310ST[plb_3919355_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens), or the Ricoh PJ WX2240[plb_3011875_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens).
