4 Reasons Against
Does Not Support 3D Image Projection
The BrightLink Pro 1430Wi does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other data projectors of this age and spec also do not support 3D image projection.
Does Not Support Full HD Projection
Most 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years do not support Full HD projection. The BrightLink Pro 1430Wi is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.
Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years the weights range from 360g to 54kg. At 5.7 kilograms, the Epson BrightLink Pro 1430Wi is quite heavy compared to most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the BrightLink Pro 1430Wi.
Very High Power Consumption During PowerSave
With a power consumption during PowerSave of 274 Watts, the Epson BrightLink Pro 1430Wi has a quite high power consumption during PowerSave compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the BrightLink Pro 1430Wi. Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the BrightLink Pro 1430Wi the power consumption during PowerSave range from 0.2W to 280W, and the average power consumption during PowerSave is 180W.
