7 Reasons For

Epson Has Good Projector Reviews

Projectors from Epson have an average rating of 90%, which is in the top 11% of all multimedia projector manufacturers that we have analysed.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Epson EB-G6800 supports 3D image projection, which is unusual. Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the EB-G6800 do not support 3D image projection.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including because of it's better review score, the Z8455WUNL, the PowerLite W16, or the PowerLite W16SK all from Epson.

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

The EB-G6800 has one of the brighter projector brightness (7,000 ANSI lumens) amongst multimedia projectors of this age. The average projector brightness of 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the EB-G6800 is 4,800 ANSI lumens.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 7,000 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available including the Epson Z8455WUNL which has better reviews.

If you would prefer a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the Panasonic PT-EX800 (£2,445.61) (7,500 ANSI lumens).

Most projectors of this age and type have between one and five audio in ports, including the EB-G6800 which has five audio in ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Lamp Power

Across all the multimedia projectors of this age and spec the lamp power range from 190W to 400W. With a lamp power of 380 Watts, the Epson EB-G6800 has a fairly big lamp power compared to most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the EB-G6800.

Chart Edit

Quite Bright Brightness in Economy Mode

5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the EB-G6800 have brightness in economy mode of between 1,800 ANSI lumens and 5,000 ANSI lumens. At 4,900 ANSI lumens, the EB-G6800 has a fairly bright brightness in economy mode compared to most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the EB-G6800.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age have a built-in speaker, however the EB-G6800 does not have a built-in speaker.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Benq W1060 (£499.96).

It is worth also looking at alternative data projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Benq W1060 (£499.96), or the Hitachi CP-AX2503 (£899.00) which also has a higher rating.

Chart Edit

Very Short Lamp Service Life
