8 Reasons For

Epson Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

Multimedia projectors made by Epson have an average rating of 90 out of 100, which is in the top 11% of all data projector brands that we have analysed.

Supports Full HD Projection

The EB-G6550WU supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the EB-G6550WU do not support Full HD projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support Full HD projection and we think the Benq W1060[plb_1403581_price], and the Hitachi CP-AX2503[plb_2298359_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other data projectors of this age and spec, the Epson EB-G6550WU has a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Benq W1060[plb_1403581_price], or the Hitachi CP-AX2503[plb_2298359_price] which has better reviews.

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the Epson EB-G6550WU is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) projector, which is the most common resolution.

A WUXGA (1920x1200) native projector resolution is actually the best resolution across all multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the EB-G6550WU.

Across similar types of projector the worst resolution is XGA (1024x768).

Supports Four Video Colour Modes

The number of video colour modes supported by the EB-G6550WU is more than most 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago. This data projector supports a Dynamic video colour mode, which is the most commonly supported video colour mode supported by projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the EB-G6550WU. The video colour modes "Photo", "Presentation" and "sRGB" are also supported by this multimedia projector.

Chart Edit

Two Audio Out Ports

The EB-G6550WU is a two audio out port projector. Most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the EB-G6550WU only have one audio out port.

Chart Edit

Four Audio in Ports

The EB-G6550WU is a four audio in port data projector. Most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the EB-G6550WU have between one and five audio in ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Lamp Power

With a lamp power of 380 Watts, the EB-G6550WU has one of the bigger lamp power amongst 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The lamp power of projectors of this age and type range from 190W to 400W, and the average lamp power is 300W.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most comparable spec data projectors that came out more than two years ago do not support 3D image projection. The Epson EB-G6550WU is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

Alternative data projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might want to look at include the Z8455WUNL[pl_1838281_price], or the PowerLite W16[pl_2384315_price] both from Epson which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The EB-G6550WU does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Very Short Lamp Service Life

The lamp service lives of comparable spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the EB-G6550WU range from 2,000h to 5,000h. The EB-G6550WU has one of the shorter lamp service lives (only 2,500 hours) amongst projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level

The quietest noise level of projectors of a comparable spec and age to the EB-G6550WU is 29dB and the loudest is 48dB. At 39 decibels, the Epson EB-G6550WU has a fairly loud noise level compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the EB-G6550WU.

Alternative projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the NEC PA572[plb_2406093_price] (39dB).

Chart Edit
