10 Reasons For
Epson Projectors Have Good Reviews
Multimedia projectors built by Epson have good ratings on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just multimedia projectors) and found that Epson also has good ratings across its entire range.
100 - 240V AC Input Voltage
This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many data projectors of this type and age.
Has a Built-In Speaker
Unlike most of the other projectors of this age and type which do not have a built-in speaker, the EB-1930 has a built-in speaker.
It may also be worth considering one of the other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the Viewsonic PJD6544W (£652.75).
We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the EH200ST (£626.57), or the HD25e both from Optoma is also worth considering.
Supports 3D Image Projection
Unlike most of the other data projectors that came out around the same time as the EB-1930 which do not support 3D image projection, the EB-1930 supports 3D image projection.
We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors which support 3D image projection and we think because of it's better review score, the Optoma GT1080 (£592.00) is also worth considering.
Alternative multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might want to consider include the EH200ST (£626.57), or the HD25e both from Optoma.
Quite Bright Projector Brightness
The EB-1930 has a fairly bright projector brightness (4,200 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar age and type to the EB-1930. Multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago have projector brightness of between 300 ANSI lumens and 8,500 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 2,800 ANSI lumens.
Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports
The Epson EB-1930 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the data projectors that came out more than two years ago. Most of the multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, however this data projector has three VGA (D-Sub) ports.
+5 More reasons for
Fairly Bright Colour Light Output
At 4,200 ANSI lumens, the EB-1930 has a fairly bright colour light output compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago. The colour light outputs of comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago range from 2.2 ANSI lumens to 6,500 ANSI lumens.
Fairly Bright White Light Output
The average white light output of data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the EB-1930 is 1,200 ANSI lumens, and the white light outputs range from 2.2 ANSI lumens to 6,500 ANSI lumens. At 4,200 ANSI lumens, the EB-1930 has a fairly bright white light output compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the EB-1930.
10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Transfer Rate
This multimedia projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data transfer rate, which is the most commonly found ethernet LAN data transfer rate on comparable spec projectors that came out more than two years ago.
Very Low Power Consumption in Economy Mode
The lowest power consumption in economy mode of projectors of this age and spec is 3.7W and the highest is 290W. The EB-1930 has a quite low power consumption in economy mode (only 3.8 Watts) compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago.
7 Reasons Against
Does Not Support Full HD Projection
Like most of the other data projectors of this age and type, the EB-1930 does not support Full HD projection.
We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Acer H9500BD is also worth considering.
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
Most comparable spec data projectors that have been available for more than two years do not support WiFi connectivity. The EB-1930 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.
Only XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution
The highest resolution of the Epson EB-1930 is XGA (1024x768). That's 62% less resolution than the most common native projector resolution of 1080p (1920x1080).
This projector's resolution (XGA (1024x768)) is actually the worst resolution across all multimedia projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the EB-1930.
A 1080p (1920x1080) native projector resolution is the best resolution amongst similar types of projector.
Data projectors with a higher resolution that might be worth looking at include the Viewsonic PJD6544W (£652.75) (WXGA (1280x800)), or the LG PA1000 (£600.56) (WXGA (1280x800)) which also has a higher Rating.
Very Short Lamp Service Life
The lamp service lives of multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the EB-1930 range from 1,500h to 30,000h. The EB-1930 has a fairly short lamp service life (only 2,500 hours) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the EB-1930.
+4 More reasons against
Very Low Number of Colours
Across all the data projectors of a comparable type and age to the EB-1930 the numbers of colours range from 1M to 1,100M, and the average number of colours is 800M. With a number of colours of only 1.07 million, the EB-1930 has one of the lower numbers of colours amongst projectors of this age.
Quite Loud Noise Level
Across all the projectors of a comparable spec and age to the EB-1930 the noise levels range from 20dB to 47dB, and the average noise level is 32dB. The EB-1930 has a fairly loud noise level (37 decibels) compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable type and age to the EB-1930.
If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the LG PA1000 (£600.56) (34dB and higher rated), or the Benq W770ST (£460.02) (34dB and higher rated).
Very Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode
The average service life of lamp in economic mode of multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the EB-1930 is 6,500h. With a service life of lamp in economic mode of only 4,000 hours, the EB-1930 has a quite short service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the EB-1930.

Total running cost over 5 years
Running costs for this projector have been estimated based on other similar projectors. If you know how much electricity and water the Epson EB-1930uses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this projector over 5 years will generate 0.49 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 13 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
