9 Reasons For

Epson Has Good Projector Reviews

Multimedia projectors from Epson have an average rating of 90 out of 100, which is in the top 11% of all projector brands that we have assessed.

Supports WiFi Connectivity

The EB-4850WU supports WiFi connectivity. Most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the EB-4850WU do not support WiFi connectivity.

Other projectors which support WiFi connectivity currently available that you might also want to consider include cheaper projectors such as the EB-4650[pl_1949829_price], or the EB-4750W[pl_1949826_price] both from Epson or the Ricoh PJ WX4240[plb_1582306_price].

Supports Full HD Projection

Unlike most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EB-4850WU which do not support Full HD projection, the Epson EB-4850WU supports Full HD projection.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative multimedia projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including the Panasonic PT-VZ570[plb_2843893_price] which is cheaper.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Epson EB-4850WU has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years also have a built-in speaker.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the PT-VZ570[pl_2843893_price], and the PT-VW535[pl_2843895_price] both from Panasonic or the Ricoh PJ WX4240[plb_1582306_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Across all 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the EB-4850WU the worst resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).
