6 Reasons For

Epson Has Good Data Projector Reviews

Epson is one of the better rated multimedia projector manufacturers according to average reviews from experts and users, and Epson also has good ratings for its 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Epson 1263W has a built-in speaker. Most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the 1263W also have a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Acer X1311[plb_1374828_price], the Epson PowerLite 1222[plb_2225031_price], or the NEC NP-M282[plb_2338575_price] which has better reviews.

That's over four times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this data projector). In addition, this projector support a graphics resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA) and 1280 x 1024 (SXGA). Across all data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the 1263W the resolution ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).

Quite Low Power Consumption in Economy Mode

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most multimedia projectors of this age and spec do not support 3D image projection. The Epson 1263W is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might also want to consider including the Acer X1111[plb_1377014_price], the Vivitek H1180HD[plb_2341133_price], or the Panasonic PT-DZ21[plb_1986217_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Epson 1263W does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the 1263W also do not support Full HD projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Acer X1311[plb_1374828_price], the Panasonic PT-DZ13[plb_2000154_price], or the Epson 1975W[plb_3009713_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Epson 1263W does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other projectors that have been available for more than two years also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the PowerLite 1222[pl_2225031_price], or the EB-X03[pl_2263795_price] both from Epson or the Benq W1500[plb_1561671_price] is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Lamp Power

Chart Edit

4 Other reasons to consider the Epson 1263W

Running Costs Are Average

The average 1 year running cost of the 1263W is £91 based on average energy prices and usage levels, which is typical compared to the other 136 projectors of a similar type and age.

Released Over Two Years Ago

This data projector has been on the market for over two years.

Average Noise Level

At 37 decibels, the Epson 1263W has a pretty typical noise level compared to most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the 1263W.

Alternative 37dB noise level data projectors currently available that you might also want to look at include the EB-965[pl_2017458_price], the EB-S031[pl_2194226_price], or the PowerLite 1222[pl_2225031_price] all from Epson which has better reviews.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Epson 1263W has a fairly typical projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar spec and age to the 1263W.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors and we think the Epson EB-98[plb_1734445_price], and the Benq TH681[plb_2192820_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the PT-LB300[pl_3347153_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens), or the PT-TW340E[pl_3140214_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens) both from Panasonic or the Epson 1420Wi[plb_3059148_price] (3,300 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.
