9 Reasons For
Running Costs Are Very Low
Based on typical usage levels and energy prices we estimate that the EB-525W will cost only £92 over 1 year to run, which makes it one of the most economic to run multimedia projectors that were launched more than a year ago.
Epson Data Projectors Have Good Reviews
We checked 732 expert and user reviews for Epson projectors and found that on average Epson has good ratings compared to other manufacturers. We also found that Epson has good ratings specifically for its 16000:1 contrast ratio data projectors.
Has a Built-In Speaker
Like most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the EB-525W, the EB-525W has a built-in speaker.
We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the EB-530 (£587.99), and the EB-520 (£539.99) both from Epson or the Acer H7550 is also worth considering.
Quite Quiet Noise Level
The quietest noise level of projectors of a comparable age and spec to the EB-525W is 30dB and the loudest is 37dB. At only 35 decibels, the EB-525W has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the EB-525W.
Very Big Matrix Size
When compared to other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than a year that we have assessed, the matrix size of the Epson EB-525W of 0.59 inches is one of the biggest. 16000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the EB-525W have matrix sizes of between 0.55" and 0.59", and the average matrix size is 0.58".
Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports
Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the EB-525W only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, however the EB-525W has three VGA (D-Sub) ports.
+4 More reasons for
With a weight of only 3.7 kilograms, the Epson EB-525W is one of the lighter projectors of a similar type and age to the EB-525W amongst 16000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. The lightest similar spec multimedia projector that was released more than a year ago is 3.4kg heavy and the heaviest is 3.9kg.
Very Low Power Consumption in Economy Mode
With a power consumption in economy mode of only 219 Watts, the EB-525W has a quite low power consumption in economy mode compared to most of the other 16000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the EB-525W. Across all the multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the EB-525W the power consumption in economy mode range from 210W to 260W.
10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Transfer Rate
This multimedia projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data transfer rate, which is the most frequently found ethernet LAN data transfer rate on similar spec multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to it.
5 Reasons Against
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
The Epson EB-525W does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than a year also do not support WiFi connectivity.
It is worth considering other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the EB-530 (£587.99), the EB-520 (£539.99), or the EB-535W (£574.91) all from Epson.
Does Not Support 3D Image Projection
Like most of the other 16000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for more than a year, the EB-525W does not support 3D image projection.
Alternative data projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might also want to consider include the Acer H7550.
Does Not Support Full HD Projection
Like most of the other similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the EB-525W, the EB-525W does not support Full HD projection.
There are a number of other projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might want to look at including the Acer H7550 which also has a higher Rating.
Very Small Lamp Power
The smallest lamp power of projectors of a comparable type and age to the EB-525W is 200W and the biggest is 220W. At only 200 Watts, the Epson EB-525W has a fairly small lamp power compared to most of the other data projectors that were launched around the same time as the EB-525W.
+2 More reasons against
Only One Component Video in Port
The EB-525W is a one component video in port projector.
3 Other reasons to consider the Epson EB-525W
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when Epson released the EB-525W.
WXGA (1280x720) Native Projector Resolution
The highest resolution of the EB-525W is WXGA (1280x720). That's 17% more resolution than a XGA (1024x768) projector, which is the most common resolution.
If the resolution of this data projector is not high enough for you then you might also want to look at the Epson EB-530 (£587.99) (WXGA (1280x768 and higher rated) and higher rated), the Optoma W350 (£401.00) (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated), or the Canon WX300ST (£549.00) (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated).
Average Projector Brightness
At 2,800 ANSI lumens, the EB-525W has a relatively standard projector brightness compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the EB-525W.
If you are looking for a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the EB-530 (£587.99) (3,200 ANSI lumens), or the EB-535W (£574.91) (3,400 ANSI lumens) both from Epson or the Acer H7550 (3,000 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher Rating.

Total running cost over 5 years
Running costs for this projector have been estimated based on other similar projectors. If you know how much electricity and water the Epson EB-525Wuses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this projector over 5 years will generate 0.45 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 12 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
