12 Reasons For
Epson Has Good Reviews for Its Data Projectors
We checked 732 owner and expert reviews for Epson projectors and found that on average Epson has good reviews compared to other manufacturers. We also found that Epson has good reviews specifically within its 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors range.
100 - 240V AC Input Voltage
This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as it.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The Epson EB-955W has a built-in speaker. Most of the other data projectors of this age and spec also have a built-in speaker.
There are a number of alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might also want to look at including the Optoma ML550 (£568.22), the Acer P1500, or the Infocus IN1146 (£510.10) which has a better Rating.
WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution
This multimedia projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is the most frequently found native projector resolution on 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to it.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other multimedia projectors that have a resolution of WXGA (1280x800) currently available including the Epson EB-W03 (£379.67) which is cheaper; or the Infocus IN1146 (£510.10), or the Epson EB-W18 which has a better Rating.
If the resolution of this projector is too low for you then you might want to consider the Acer P1500 (1080p (1920x1080)), or the Benq W1070 (£499.00) (1080p (1920x1080)) which also has a higher rating.
Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports
The EB-955W is a three VGA (D-Sub) port data projector.
Two Component Video in Ports
The EB-955W is a two component video in port data projector.
+7 More reasons for
Two Audio in Ports
The Epson EB-955W is a two audio in port projector. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for more than two years have between one and two audio in ports.
Quite High RMS Rated Power
The EB-955W has one of the higher RMS rated power (16 Watts) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. The average RMS rated power of multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the EB-955W is 9.1W, and the RMS rated power range from 1W to 20W.
Supports One Video Colour Mode
The number of video colour modes supported by the EB-955W is more than most 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as it. The most commonly supported video colour mode is Dynamic, but this video colour mode is not supported by this multimedia projector. The video colour modes sRGB|Dynamic are also supported by this projector.
Fairly Long Lamp Service Life
The shortest lamp service life of data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the EB-955W is 500h, the longest is 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 6,500h. At 5,000 hours, the EB-955W has a fairly long lamp service life compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the EB-955W.
1.6:1 Zoom Ratio
The biggest zoom ratio supported by the EB-955W is 1.6:1. That's 33% more zoom ratio than a 1.2:1 projector, which is the most common zoom ratio supported by 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the EB-955W. Projectors of this spec and age zoom ratios range from Fixed (worst) to 1.7:1 (best).
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 comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to it.
5 Reasons Against
Does Not Support 3D Image Projection
Like most of the other data projectors of this spec and age, the EB-955W does not support 3D image projection.
Other projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might want to look at include the Acer K135 (£379.67); or the Optoma ML550 (£568.22), or the Acer P1500.
Does Not Support Full HD Projection
The EB-955W does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other similar spec projectors that were released around the same time as the EB-955W also do not support Full HD projection.
It is worth considering alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Acer P1500, the NEC M322 (£967.93), or the Benq W1070 (£499.00) which is also higher rated.
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
The EB-955W does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth noting that most of the other projectors of this age and spec also do not support WiFi connectivity.
We compared all the other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the EB-X18 (£411.67), or the EB-X03 both from Epson which is also cheaper is also worth considering.
Very Low Number of Colours
At only 1.07 million, the EB-955W has a quite low number of colours compared to most of the other data projectors of this age and type. 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago have numbers of colours of between 1M and 1,100M.
+2 More reasons against
Only One HDMI Port
Most projectors of a similar age and spec to the EB-955W have between one and two HDMI ports, including the Epson EB-955W which has one HDMI port.
4 Other reasons to consider the Epson EB-955W
Running Costs Are OK
The EB-955W is typical compared to the other 102 projectors of a comparable age and type that we have assessed for running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the EB-955W will cost £94 over 1 year to run.
Released Over Two Years Ago
It was over two years ago when Epson released the EB-955W.
Average Noise Level
At 37 decibels, the EB-955W has a relatively average noise level compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years.
There are a number of alternative 37dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available that you might want to look at including the EB-X20 (£399.00), or the EB-X24 (£489.56) both from Epson which has a better Rating.
If you would consider a multimedia projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Epson EB-W22 (£460.49) (37dB).
+2 Other reasons
Average Projector Brightness
At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the EB-955W has a fairly standard projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar age and spec to the EB-955W.
We compared all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors to this projector and we think the Acer P1341, and the Epson EB-X18 (£411.67) which is cheaper is also worth considering.
Data projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth considering include the NEC M322 (£967.93) (3,200 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-955Wuses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this projector over 5 years will generate 0.46 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 12 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
