10 Reasons For
Epson Projectors Have Good Reviews
On average projectors made by Epson are rated 90%, which is in the top 11% of all projector manufacturers that we have analysed.
Price Has Dropped by £249.12
In the last 48 days the EB-4950WU has dropped in price by £249.12.
Supports 3D Image Projection
The Epson EB-4950WU supports 3D image projection, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors that have been on the market for more than two years do not support 3D image projection.
Alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might want to look at include the NEC PA572[plb_2406093_price].
Supports WiFi Connectivity
The EB-4950WU supports WiFi connectivity, unlike most of the other similar spec projectors that came out more than two years ago which do not support WiFi connectivity.
Supports Full HD Projection
The EB-4950WU supports Full HD projection. Most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the EB-4950WU do not support Full HD projection.
Alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might also want to consider include the NEC PA572[plb_2406093_price].
Has a Built-In Speaker
The EB-4950WU has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the EB-4950WU.
We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Panasonic PT-EW640[plb_2529477_price], or the NEC PA572[plb_2406093_price] is also worth considering.
