5 Reasons For

Epson Has Good Reviews for Its Data Projectors

Epson has good average reviews for its 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors as well as across its entire projector range compared to other brands.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the EB-S031, the EB-S031 has a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Epson PowerLite 1222[plb_2225031_price], and the NEC NP-M282[plb_2338575_price] is also worth considering.

Two USB 2.0 Ports

Most multimedia projectors of this age and type have between one and two USB 2.0 ports, including the Epson EB-S031 which has two USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Lamp Service Life

With a lamp service life of 5,000 hours, the EB-S031 has one of the longer lamp service lives amongst multimedia projectors of this age. Comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EB-S031 have lamp service lives of between 500h and 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 6,400h.

Chart Edit

Very Light

With a weight of only 2.4 kilograms, the EB-S031 is one of the lighter projectors that are a similar age to the EB-S031 amongst comparable spec projectors of this age. Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago the weights range from 360g to 54kg, and the average weight is 4.6kg.

16 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago do not support 3D image projection. The EB-S031 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Epson EB-S031 does not support Full HD projection, although it is worth noting that most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the EB-S031 also do not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection to this projector and we think the Epson 1975W[plb_3009713_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Epson EB-S031 does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other data projectors of this age and type also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Alternative multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might also want to consider include the Benq W1500[plb_1561671_price], or the Epson PowerLite 1222[plb_2225031_price].

Only SVGA (800x600) Native Projector Resolution

The EB-S031 has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 53% less resolution than the most common native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

This projector's resolution (SVGA (800x600)) is actually the worst resolution across all multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the EB-S031.

Across similar types of projector the best resolution is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

At only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the Epson EB-S031 has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the EB-S031. The projector brightness of multimedia projectors of this spec and age range from 300 ANSI lumens to 12,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,300 ANSI lumens.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the NEC NP-M282[plb_2338575_price] (2,800 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

Quite Low RMS Rated Power

Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EB-S031 the RMS rated power range from 1W to 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 8.9W. When compared to other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago that we have assessed, the Epson EB-S031's RMS rated power of only 1 Watt is one of the lowest.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Brightness in Economy Mode

With a brightness in economy mode of only 1,890 ANSI lumen, the EB-S031 has a fairly dim brightness in economy mode compared to most of the other projectors of this age and type. The brightness in economy mode of multimedia projectors of this spec and age range from 240 ANSI lumens to 3,500 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Very Small Digital Zoom

At only 1.35 times zoom factor, the EB-S031 has a fairly small digital zoom compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years. 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the EB-S031 have digital zooms of between 1.1x and 2x, and the average digital zoom is 1.7x.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level

The noise levels of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the EB-S031 range from 28dB to 49dB, and the average noise level is 35dB. With a noise level of 37 decibels, the EB-S031 has a quite loud noise level compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the EB-S031.

We compared all the other 37dB noise level data projectors to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Epson EB-X24[plb_2017451_price] is also worth considering.

Quite Small Lamp Power

The smallest lamp power of similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the EB-S031 is 15W and the biggest is 840W. At only 200 Watts, the Epson EB-S031 has a fairly small lamp power compared to most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the EB-S031.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Colour Light Output

The EB-S031 has a quite dim colour light output (only 2,700 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the EB-S031. The dimmest colour light output of projectors that came out around the same time as the EB-S031 is 600 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 4,800 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim White Light Output

At only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the EB-S031 has a quite dim white light output compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that have been around for more than two years. The white light outputs of data projectors of this spec and age range from 600 ANSI lumens to 4,800 ANSI lumens, and the average white light output is 3,000 ANSI lumens.

Only One Audio in Port

The EB-S031 is a one audio in port data projector.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Matrix Size

The Epson EB-S031 has one of the smaller matrix sizes (only 0.55 inches) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. Across all the multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the EB-S031 the matrix sizes range from 0.45" to 0.96", and the average matrix size is 0.62".
