13 Reasons For
Epson Data Projectors Have Good Reviews
Epson has good average ratings for its 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors as well as across its entire multimedia projector range compared to other manufacturers.
Across all projectors, the EB-585W is one the fastest selling products currently on the market.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The EB-585W has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the EB-585W.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq W1080[plb_1495063_price].
We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Epson EB-570[plb_2237069_price], or the Infocus IN134[plb_2110030_price].
WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution
This data projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is the most commonly found native projector resolution on projectors of a similar age and spec to it.
Supports Six Video Colour Modes
The EB-585W has a greater number of video colour modes than most 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as it. This projector supports a Dynamic video colour mode, which is the most frequently supported video colour mode supported by 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EB-585W. The video colour modes "Presentation", "Sports", "sRGB", "Theatre" and "Whiteboard" are also supported by this multimedia projector.
Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports
Most projectors of this age and type have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports, including the Epson EB-585W which has three VGA (D-Sub) ports.
+8 More reasons for
Two HDMI Ports
The EB-585W is a two HDMI port data projector.
Two USB 2.0 Ports
The Epson EB-585W is a two USB 2.0 port projector. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago have between one and two USB 2.0 ports.
Quite High RMS Rated Power
Similar spec projectors that were released around the same time as the EB-585W have RMS rated power of between 1W and 20W. At 16 Watts, the EB-585W has a fairly high RMS rated power compared to most of the other data projectors of this age and spec.
Quite Bright Colour Light Output
With a colour light output of 3,300 ANSI lumens, the Epson EB-585W has one of the brighter colour light outputs amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The colour light outputs of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EB-585W range from 600 ANSI lumens to 4,800 ANSI lumens.
Fairly Bright White Light Output
The dimmest white light output of multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the EB-585W is 600 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 4,800 ANSI lumens, and the average white light output is 3,000 ANSI lumens. With a white light output of 3,300 ANSI lumens, the EB-585W has one of the brighter white light outputs amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.
10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Transfer Rate
This projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data transfer rate, which is the most frequently found ethernet LAN data transfer rate on comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years.
Quite Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode
The EB-585W has one of the quieter noise levels in economy mode (only 28 decibels) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age. The average noise level in economy mode of data projectors of this spec and age is 30dB, and the noise levels in economy mode range from 26dB to 40dB.
6 Reasons Against
Does Not Support 3D Image Projection
Most multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the EB-585W do not support 3D image projection. The Epson EB-585W is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.
It is worth considering other projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Benq W1080[plb_1495063_price].
Does Not Support Full HD Projection
Like most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the EB-585W, the EB-585W does not support Full HD projection.
It is worth considering alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Benq W1080[plb_1495063_price], or the Optoma DH1017[plb_2104607_price] which also has a higher rating.
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
The Epson EB-585W does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the EB-585W also do not support WiFi connectivity.
Very Small Digital Zoom
The EB-585W has a quite small digital zoom (only 1.35 times zoom factor) compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the EB-585W. The average digital zoom of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the EB-585W is 1.7x.
+3 More reasons against
The EB-585W is fairly heavy (5.3 kilograms) compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the EB-585W. The weights of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the EB-585W range from 360g to 54kg.
Quite High Power Consumption During PowerSave
The power consumption during PowerSave of multimedia projectors of this age and type range from 0.2W to 280W. With a power consumption during PowerSave of 270 Watts, the Epson EB-585W has one of the higher power consumption during PowerSave amongst similar spec projectors of this age.
5 Other reasons to consider the Epson EB-585W
OK Running Costs
The EB-585W is typical compared to the other 136 projectors that were launched more than two years ago that we have assessed for 1 year running costs. Based on typical energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the EB-585W is £118.
Released Over Two Years Ago
It was over two years ago when Epson released the EB-585W.
Average Projector Brightness
At 3,300 ANSI lumens, the Epson EB-585W has a relatively typical projector brightness compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the EB-585W.
If this 10000:1 contrast ratio projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to consider the NEC M362[plb_2268470_price] (3,600 ANSI lumens and cheaper).
+3 Other reasons
Average Noise Level
The EB-585W has a fairly average noise level (35 decibels) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the EB-585W.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 35dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available including the Epson EB-575W[plb_2237067_price], or the Acer P5307[plb_1569831_price] which is cheaper.
Data projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth considering include the Epson EB-570[plb_2237069_price] (35dB).
1280 X 800 Graphics Resolution
The EB-585W supports a maximum resolution of 1280 x 800. That's over three times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA).
