8 Reasons For
Epson Has Good Multimedia Projector Reviews
Epson is one of the better rated multimedia projector brands according to average reviews from users and experts, and Epson also has good reviews for its 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors.
Supports WiFi Connectivity
The Epson EB-1970W supports WiFi connectivity, unlike most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the EB-1970W which do not support WiFi connectivity.
We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors which support WiFi connectivity and we think the 1985WU, and the 1975W both from Epson which has better reviews is also worth considering.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The EB-1970W has a built-in speaker. Most of the other projectors of this age and spec also have a built-in speaker.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Epson PowerLite 1222 which has better reviews.
Quite Bright Projector Brightness
With a projector brightness of 5,000 ANSI lumens, the EB-1970W has one of the brighter projector brightness amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age. The average projector brightness of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the EB-1970W is 3,300 ANSI lumens.
If this data projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to look at the PT-RZ670 (£9,035.40) (6,500 ANSI lumens), or the PT-RW630 (£6,713.06) (6,500 ANSI lumens) both from Panasonic or the NEC PX602 (£6,000.88) (6,000 ANSI lumens).
WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution
This projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is the most frequently found native projector resolution on similar spec projectors that were launched around the same time as it.
Two Audio in Ports
The EB-1970W is a two audio in port data projector.

Very Bright Brightness in Economy Mode
The dimmest brightness in economy mode of projectors of this age and spec is 240 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 3,500 ANSI lumens. At 3,500 ANSI lumens, the EB-1970W has a very bright brightness in economy mode compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age.
Fairly Big Lamp Power
With a lamp power of 280 Watts, the EB-1970W has a fairly big lamp power compared to most of the other data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the EB-1970W. Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the EB-1970W the lamp power range from 15W to 470W, and the average lamp power is 240W.
6 Reasons Against
Does Not Support 3D Image Projection
The EB-1970W does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the EB-1970W also do not support 3D image projection.
Other multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might want to consider include the Vivitek D966HD which also has a higher rating.
Does Not Support Full HD Projection
Most 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the EB-1970W do not support Full HD projection. The EB-1970W is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.
Alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might also want to consider include the NEC NP-M282 which is also higher rated.
Very Short Lamp Service Life
The average lamp service life of multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the EB-1970W is 6,100h. With a lamp service life of only 3,000 hours, the EB-1970W has one of the shorter lamp service lives amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.
Very Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode
Across all the multimedia projectors of this type and age the service life of lamp in economic mode range from 3,500h to 30,000h. At only 4,000 hours, the Epson EB-1970W has a fairly short service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other projectors that were released more than two years ago.
+3 More reasons against
Fairly Loud Noise Level
Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago the noise levels range from 28dB to 49dB, and the average noise level is 35dB. The EB-1970W has a quite loud noise level (39 decibels) compared to most of the other data projectors that came out around the same time as the EB-1970W.
Alternative data projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the NEC M420 (£1,021.02) (39dB), or the Epson EB-1980WU (£907.01) (39dB).
Quite Loud Noise Level in Economy Mode
The EB-1970W has one of the louder noise levels in economy mode (32 decibels) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age. Multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the EB-1970W have noise levels in economy mode of between 26dB and 40dB.
