9 Reasons For
Epson Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors
We checked 732 user and expert reviews for Epson data projectors and found that on average Epson has good ratings. We also found that Epson has good ratings specifically within its 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors range.
100 - 240V AC Input Voltage
This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on recently released 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors.
Supports WiFi Connectivity
The Epson EB-U04 supports WiFi connectivity. Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the EB-U04 do not support WiFi connectivity.
Supports Full HD Projection
The Epson EB-U04 supports Full HD projection, as do most of the other latest comparable spec projectors.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The Epson EB-U04 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched in the last year also have a built-in speaker.
We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the EB-X31 (£279.99), or the EB-S31 (£249.99) both from Epson.
Quite Big Matrix Size
The matrix sizes of new projectors range from 0.55" to 0.7". At 0.67 inches, the Epson EB-U04 has a quite big matrix size compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the EB-U04.
+4 More reasons for
Quite Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode
At 10,000 hours, the Epson EB-U04 has a quite long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other new projectors. The average service life of lamp in economic mode of recently released 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors is 7,400h.
Supports One Video Colour Mode
The number of video colour modes supported by the Epson EB-U04 is more than most new projectors. The most frequently supported video colour mode is Cinema, but this video colour mode is not supported by this data projector. The video colour modes Dynamic|Photo|Presentation|Theatre|sRGB are also supported by this Epson data projector.
Very Low Power Consumption in Economy Mode
The Epson EB-U04 has a fairly low power consumption in economy mode (only 207 Watts) compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EB-U04. Across all the data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the EB-U04 the power consumption in economy mode range from 200W to 320W, and the average power consumption in economy mode is 250W.
8 Reasons Against
Does Not Support 3D Image Projection
The Epson EB-U04 does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other recently released 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors do support 3D image projection.
Quite Dim Projector Brightness
Across all the latest multimedia projectors the projector brightness range from 2,000 ANSI lumens to 6,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,600 ANSI lumens. The Epson EB-U04 has a fairly dim projector brightness (only 3,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other newly released 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors.
If you want a multimedia projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the EB-X31 (£279.99) (3,200 ANSI lumens), or the EB-S31 (£249.99) (3,200 ANSI lumens) both from Epson.
Very Small Offset
With an offset of only 10 percent, the Epson EB-U04 has a fairly small offset compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the EB-U04. Latest comparable spec data projectors have offsets of between 8% and 130%.
Very Dim Brightness in Economy Mode
New projectors have brightness in economy mode of between 2,100 ANSI lumens and 3,200 ANSI lumens, and the average brightness in economy mode is 2,500 ANSI lumens. At only 2,100 ANSI lumens, the Epson EB-U04 has a quite dim brightness in economy mode compared to most of the other data projectors that are a similar age to the EB-U04.
+5 More reasons against
Quite Loud Noise Level
At 38 decibels, the Epson EB-U04 has a quite loud noise level compared to most of the other new 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors. The quietest noise level of 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the EB-U04 is 29dB, the loudest is 39dB, and the average noise level is 35dB.
Very Dim Colour Light Output
At only 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Epson EB-U04 has a fairly dim colour light output compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for the last year. The colour light outputs of 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the EB-U04 range from 3,000 ANSI lumens to 3,600 ANSI lumens.
Very Dim White Light Output
The dimmest white light output of projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the EB-U04 is 3,000 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 3,600 ANSI lumens, and the average white light output is 3,200 ANSI lumens. The Epson EB-U04 has a fairly dim white light output (only 3,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the EB-U04.
Quite Loud Noise Level in Economy Mode
Across all the 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EB-U04 the noise levels in economy mode range from 27dB to 32dB. At 32 decibels, the Epson EB-U04 has a fairly loud noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other latest data projectors.

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-U04uses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this projector over 5 years will generate 0.44 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 12 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
