9 Reasons For

Two Industry Awards

This Epson multimedia projector was given an "Editor's Choice" award by PC Mag who said that this projector was outstanding.

This data projector received a "Highly Rated" award from Projectorcentral.com.

Expert Reviews Are Good

This projector has an average expert rating of 85 out of 100 based on three expert reviews from sites including PC Mag, projectorcentral.com and pcworld.pl.

Epson Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

On average Epson 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good ratings as do all multimedia projectors produced by Epson.

Good Technical Features

One customer who bought the Epson BrightLink 485Wi concluded that it had good features. Pcmag.com mentioned on PC Mag four years ago “Among its more interesting features are automatic calibration”.

Reasonably Priced

One customer who bought it thought it was cheap. Projectorreviews.com mentioned “The BrightLink 485Wi is also inexpensive to maintain”.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the BrightLink 485Wi, the Epson BrightLink 485Wi has a built-in speaker.

Alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might want to consider include the NEC NP-M271X, the Optoma TW610STi, or the Epson BrightLink 436Wi (£1,599.97) which has better reviews.

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the BrightLink 485Wi have RMS rated power of between 0.5W and 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 11W. With an RMS rated power of 16 Watts, the BrightLink 485Wi has a fairly high RMS rated power compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Epson BrightLink 485Wi does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the BrightLink 485Wi also do not support 3D image projection.

It is worth also looking at alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Optoma TW610STi which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most projectors of this age and type do not support Full HD projection. The BrightLink 485Wi is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might want to consider including the Infocus IN3118 which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The BrightLink 485Wi does not support WiFi connectivity, although keep in mind that most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the BrightLink 485Wi also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Epson BrightLink 436Wi (£1,599.97).

Very High Running Costs

The BrightLink 485Wi is one of the most expensive to run multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age that we have analysed for running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the BrightLink 485Wi will cost £156 over 1 year to run.

Chart

Quite Small Digital Zoom

The BrightLink 485Wi has one of the smaller digital zooms (only 1.35 times zoom factor) amongst comparable spec multimedia projectors of this age. Projectors that are a similar age to the BrightLink 485Wi have digital zooms of between 1.3x and 4x.

Chart Edit

Only One Component Video in Port

Most projectors of a comparable type and age to the BrightLink 485Wi have between one and two component video in ports, including the BrightLink 485Wi which has one component video in port.

3 Other reasons to consider the Epson BrightLink 485Wi

Released Over Four Years Ago

This projector has been on the market for over four years.

Average Noise Level

The BrightLink 485Wi has a relatively standard noise level (35 decibels) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the BrightLink 485Wi.

Other projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the NEC UM330 (£1,155.78) (28dB).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,100 ANSI lumens, the BrightLink 485Wi has a fairly average projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec.

We compared this data projector to all the other 3,100 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the Optoma TW610STi is also worth considering.

Multimedia projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth looking at include the Infocus IN3118 (3,600 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
