8 Reasons For

Epson Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

Based on 736 user and expert reviews, Epson has good reviews for its multimedia projectors. Epson also has good reviews specifically for its 16000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Supports WiFi Connectivity

The Epson EB-520 supports WiFi connectivity, unlike most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the EB-520 which do not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative multimedia projectors which support WiFi connectivity currently available including a cheaper projector such as the Epson EB-530[plb_2785737_price] or you might consider a higher rated projector such as the Epson EB-535W[plb_2780308_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Epson EB-520 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other multimedia projectors that were released more than a year ago also have a built-in speaker.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Epson EB-535W[plb_2780308_price] which has better reviews; or the Epson EB-530[plb_2785737_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.
