8 Reasons For
Epson Has Good Multimedia Projector Reviews
Based on 732 owner and expert reviews, Epson has good reviews for its projectors. Epson also has good reviews specifically for its 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The EB-585W has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EB-585W.
We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the PT-VW355N (£812.40), or the PT-VX425N (£812.40) both from Panasonic or the Hitachi CP -AX2505 is also worth considering.
Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports
The EB-585W is a three VGA (D-Sub) port projector.
Two HDMI Ports
Most comparable spec projectors that have been available for more than a year have between one and two HDMI ports, including the Epson EB-585W which has two HDMI ports.
Two USB 2.0 Ports
Most 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than a year ago have between one and two USB 2.0 ports, including the Epson EB-585W which has two USB 2.0 ports.
Supports One Video Colour Mode
The Epson EB-585W has a greater number of video colour modes than most 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for more than a year. The most commonly supported video colour mode is Dynamic, but this video colour mode is not supported by this projector. The video colour modes Dynamic|Presentation|Sports|sRGB|Theatre|Whiteboard are also supported by this multimedia projector.
+3 More reasons for
10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Transfer Rate
This data projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data transfer rate, which is typical of many projectors that have been around for a similar time to it.
Quite Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode
The quietest noise level in economy mode of projectors of a comparable age and spec to the EB-585W is 26dB and the loudest is 39dB. At only 28 decibels, the EB-585W has a fairly quiet noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the EB-585W.
5 Reasons Against
Does Not Support Full HD Projection
The EB-585W does not support Full HD projection, unlike most of the other data projectors of this age and type.
Other projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might also want to consider include the Acer P1515 (£788.71).
Does Not Support 3D Image Projection
The EB-585W does not support 3D image projection, although keep in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec also do not support 3D image projection.
We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Acer P1515 (£788.71).
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
Most 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched more than a year ago do not support WiFi connectivity. The EB-585W is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.
We compared all the other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this multimedia projector and we think the PT-VW355N (£812.40), or the PT-VX425N (£812.40) both from Panasonic or the Benq W1070+W is also worth considering.
With a weight of 5.5 kilograms, the EB-585W is quite heavy compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age. The lightest 10000:1 contrast ratio projector that has been on the market for around the same time as the EB-585W is 380g heavy, the heaviest is 24kg, and the average weight is 4.5kg.
+2 More reasons against
Quite High Power Consumption During PowerSave
The lowest power consumption during PowerSave of projectors of a similar age and spec to the EB-585W is 0.18W and the highest is 290W. At 270 Watts, the Epson EB-585W has a quite high power consumption during PowerSave compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that were released one year ago.
6 Other reasons to consider the Epson EB-585W
Released Over a Year Ago
Epson released the EB-585W over a year ago.
Average Running Costs
The EB-585W is typical compared to the other 74 data projectors of a comparable type and age that we have analysed for 1 year running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the EB-585W is £118.
Average Projector Brightness
At 3,300 ANSI lumens, the Epson EB-585W has a relatively standard projector brightness compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than a year ago.
If this data projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to look at the NEC NP-M363X (£745.74) (3,600 ANSI lumens and cheaper).
+4 Other reasons
Average Noise Level
At 35 decibels, the EB-585W has a pretty standard noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age.
There are a number of alternative 35dB noise level projectors currently available that you might also want to look at including the Epson EB-575W (£834.85) which is cheaper.
1280 X 800 (WXGA) Graphics Resolution
The EB-585W supports a maximum resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA). That's over three times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA).
We compared this projector to all the other projectors that support a resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA) and we think the Epson EB-575W (£834.85) which is cheaper is also worth considering.
If you are looking for a projector with a higher resolution then you might also want to consider the M403W (£801.60) (640 x 480 (VGA and cheaper)|720 x 576|800 x 600 (SVGA and cheaper)|832 x 624|1024 x 768 (XGA and cheaper)|1152 x 864 (XGA+ and cheaper)|1152 x 870|1280 x 1024 (SXGA and cheaper)|1280 x 720 (HD 720 and cheaper)|1360 x 768 (WXGA and cheaper)|1376 x 768|1440 x 1050|1440 x 900 (WXGA+ and cheaper)|1440 x 900|1600 x 1200 (UXGA and cheaper)|1600 x 900|1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+ and cheaper)|1920 x 1080 (HD 1080 and cheaper) and cheaper), the M303WS (£715.20) (640 x 480 (VGA and cheaper)|800 x 600 (SVGA and cheaper)|1024 x 768 (XGA and cheaper)|1280 x 1024 (SXGA and cheaper)|1280 x 768 (WXGA and cheaper)|1400 x 1050 (SXGA+ and cheaper)|1440 x 900 (WXGA+ and cheaper)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA and cheaper)|1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+ and cheaper)|1920 x 1080 (HD 1080 and cheaper)|1920 x 1200 (WUXGA and cheaper) and cheaper), or the M402 (£2,278.85) (1024 x 768 (XGA and cheaper)|1280 x 1024 (SXGA and cheaper)|1400 x 1050 (SXGA+ and cheaper)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA and cheaper)|1920 x 1200 (WUXGA and cheaper)|640 x 480 (VGA and cheaper)|800 x 600 (SVGA and cheaper) and cheaper) all from NEC.
WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution
The highest resolution of the EB-585W is WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most frequently found native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768).
It may also be worth also looking at one of the other multimedia projectors that have a resolution of WXGA (1280x800) currently available including cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Epson EB-575W (£834.85).
If the resolution of this projector is not high enough for you then you might want to consider the W1070+W (1080p (1920x1080)), or the MH856UST (£1,048.92) (1080p (1920x1080)) both from Benq or the Acer U5520B (£1,066.09) (1080p (1920x1080)).

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-585Wuses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this projector over 5 years will generate 0.58 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 15 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
