Epson VS345 WXGA Projector Review
? Sale Epson VS345 WXGA 3LCD Projector 3000 Lumens Color  Reviews

10 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Good

Data projector expert review website PC Mag scored this 15000:1 contrast ratio data projector 80 out of 100.

Epson Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors built by Epson have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all multimedia projectors (not just 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors) and found that Epson also has good reviews across its entire range.

Good Product Quality

Several Epson VS345 owners mentioned in their reviews that the product was good quality. In December last year Pcmag.com said on expert website PC Mag “The Epson VS345 WXGA 3LCD Projector ($459.99) is a low-price yet capable model, with good image quality for both data” in their review. Pcmag.com also said “The Epson VS345 provides good data- and video-image quality for a low-priced WXGA projector”. Pc Mag said on PC Mag “Good video- and data-image quality in our tests” and gave it a score of 80 out of 100.

Good Picture Quality

One person mentioned that it had good picture quality.

Robust

One person who bought the product concluded that it was well made. Expert website Pcmag.com wrote in their Epson VS345 review “A solid selection of ports”.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type, the Epson VS345 has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the Optoma W316 ($877.00), or the Benq W1110 ($1,030.08) is also worth considering.
