At 10,000 hours, the Epson VS240 has a quite long service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released one year ago.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VS240, the Epson VS240 does not support 3D.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D to this projector and we think the DH558[pl_3383971_price], the DH976-WT[pl_3384020_price], or the DX813[pl_3704518_price] all from Vivitek is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD

Most comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the VS240 do not support full HD. The Epson VS240 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

It is worth also looking at other multimedia projectors which also support full HD including the 1264[pl_3127259_price], or the 1284[pl_3127260_price] both from Epson or the Vivitek DH913[plb_3078234_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Epson VS240 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the VS240 also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the EB-W31[pl_3193910_price], the EB-U04[pl_3024676_price], or the EB-W32[pl_3059517_price] all from Epson which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Only SVGA (800x600) Projector Native Resolution

The Epson VS240 has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 77% less resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) projector, which is the most common resolution. Across all projectors of this spec and age the best resolution is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) and the worst is nHD (640x360).

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level

With a noise level of 37 decibels, the Epson VS240 has a quite loud noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that were launched more than a year ago. The average noise level of 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VS240 is 35dB, and the noise levels range from 29dB to 39dB.

There are a number of other 37dB noise level projectors currently available which you might want to consider including the EB-U04[pl_3024676_price], or the VS345[pl_3043985_price] both from Epson which has better reviews.

2 Other reasons to consider the Epson VS240

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when Epson released the VS240.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Epson VS240 has a relatively typical projector brightness compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for more than a year.

There are a number of alternative 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available that you might want to look at including the EB-U04[pl_3024676_price], or the VS345[pl_3043985_price] both from Epson which has better reviews.

Data projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth considering include the EB-U32[pl_3044338_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated), the EB-W32[pl_3059517_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the EB-X31[pl_3078403_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated) all from Epson.
