9 Reasons For

Epson Projectors Have Good Reviews

3000:1 contrast ratio projectors built by Epson have good reviews on average. We also checked the reviews for all data projectors (not just 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors) and found that Epson also has good reviews across its entire range.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The EB-426Wi has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EB-426Wi.

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is the most commonly found native projector resolution on multimedia projectors of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

Most of the other projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the EB-426Wi only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, however the EB-426Wi has three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly High RMS Rated Power

The Epson EB-426Wi has one of the higher RMS rated power (16 Watts) amongst multimedia projectors of this age. The lowest RMS rated power of projectors of this age and spec is 0.5W and the highest is 20W.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Lamp Service Life

The average lamp service life of projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the EB-426Wi is 4,400h. The EB-426Wi has one of the longer lamp service lives (5,000 hours) amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to it.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Transfer Rate

This multimedia projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data transfer rate, which is typical of many similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

With a noise level in economy mode of only 28 decibels, the EB-426Wi has a fairly quiet noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the EB-426Wi. The quietest noise level in economy mode of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the EB-426Wi is 26dB and the loudest is 35dB.

11 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the EB-426Wi, the EB-426Wi does not support Full HD projection.

Other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might also want to consider include the Epson 475Wi (£1,632.80), or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the EB-426Wi do not support 3D image projection. The EB-426Wi is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection to this projector and we think the NEC NP-M311W which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The EB-426Wi does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to the EB-426Wi also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the NEC NP-UM330 which also has a higher rating.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

At only 2,500 ANSI lumens, the Epson EB-426Wi has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the EB-426Wi. The average projector brightness of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the EB-426Wi is 3,500 ANSI lumens.

Alternative 2,500 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available which you might want to consider include the Epson EB-425W (£778.51) which has better reviews.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth looking at include the Sony VPL-DX127 (£374.97) (2,600 ANSI lumens).

Very Small Offset

At only 9.51 percent, the EB-426Wi has a fairly small offset compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the EB-426Wi. The smallest offset of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago is 9.5% and the biggest is 130%.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Colour Light Output

The EB-426Wi has one of the dimmer colour light outputs (only 2,500 ANSI lumens) amongst data projectors of this age. The dimmest colour light output of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the EB-426Wi is 2.6 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 5,000 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim White Light Output

The Epson EB-426Wi has a fairly dim white light output (only 2,500 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to the EB-426Wi. Across all the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the EB-426Wi the white light outputs range from 2.6 ANSI lumens to 5,000 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Very Small Digital Zoom

With a digital zoom of only 1.35 times zoom factor, the Epson EB-426Wi has one of the smaller digital zooms amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The digital zooms of projectors of a similar type and age to the EB-426Wi range from 1.3x to 4x.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Lamp Power

With a lamp power of only 200 Watts, the Epson EB-426Wi has a quite small lamp power compared to most of the other data projectors of this spec and age. Data projectors of this age and type have lamp power of between 140W and 400W.

Chart Edit

Quite High Power Consumption During PowerSave

With a power consumption during PowerSave of 246 Watts, the EB-426Wi has a fairly high power consumption during PowerSave compared to most of the other data projectors of this age and type. The lowest power consumption during PowerSave of projectors of this type and age is 0.1W, the highest is 330W, and the average power consumption during PowerSave is 160W.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Matrix Size

Data projectors of this age and type have matrix sizes of between 0.55" and 0.75", and the average matrix size is 0.61". The Epson EB-426Wi has one of the smaller matrix sizes (only 0.59 inches) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.

3 Other reasons to consider the Epson EB-426Wi

OK Running Costs

The EB-426Wi has an average running cost of £97 over 1 year based on typical energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 92 multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec.

Released Over Three Years Ago

This multimedia projector was released over three years ago.

Average Noise Level

At 35 decibels, the EB-426Wi has a relatively typical noise level compared to most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the EB-426Wi.

We compared all the other 35dB noise level multimedia projectors to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Epson 475Wi (£1,632.80) is also worth considering.
