10 Reasons For
According to Amazon sales data, the EB-U32 is one the fastest selling projector currently available.
Epson Has Good Projector Reviews
Epson has good average ratings for its 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors as well as across its entire data projector range compared to other brands.
Supports WiFi Connectivity
The Epson EB-U32 supports WiFi connectivity, which is unusual. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to the EB-U32 do not support WiFi connectivity.
We compared this projector to all the other data projectors which support WiFi connectivity and we think the Epson EB-U04[plb_3024676_price] which is cheaper; or the Epson EB-W32[plb_3059517_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.
Supports Full HD Projection
The Epson EB-U32 supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the EB-U32 do not support Full HD projection.
It may also be worth considering one of the other projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including the Vivitek DH558[plb_3383971_price] which is cheaper; or the Benq W1110[plb_3103892_price] which has better reviews.
There are a number of other projectors which also support Full HD projection which you might want to look at including the Epson 1264[plb_3127259_price].
Has a Built-In Speaker
The Epson EB-U32 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the EB-U32 also have a built-in speaker.
We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Benq W1110[plb_3103892_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
There are a number of other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker which you might also want to look at including the Epson 1264[plb_3127259_price], or the Vivitek DW814[plb_3383743_price].
WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution
The highest resolution of the Epson EB-U32 is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of the most frequently found native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800).
This data projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is actually the best resolution across all multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the EB-U32.
Across similar types of data projector the worst resolution is WXGA (1280x800).
+5 More reasons for
Fairly Big Matrix Size
At 0.67 inches, the Epson EB-U32 has a quite big matrix size compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EB-U32. The matrix sizes of 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the EB-U32 range from 0.55" to 0.67", and the average matrix size is 0.62".
Two USB 2.0 Ports
The Epson EB-U32 has more USB 2.0 ports than most of the similar spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the EB-U32. This Epson projector is a two USB 2.0 port data projector compared to most of the projectors that are a similar age to the EB-U32 which only have one USB 2.0 port.
100V AC Input Voltage
This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to it.
Very Low Power Consumption in Economy Mode
With a power consumption in economy mode of only 207 Watts, the Epson EB-U32 has a quite low power consumption in economy mode compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age. The average power consumption in economy mode of 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the EB-U32 is 230W.
3 Reasons Against
Does Not Support 3D Image Projection
Like most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the EB-U32, the Epson EB-U32 does not support 3D image projection.
It is worth also looking at alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Benq W1110[plb_3103892_price] which also has a higher rating.
Very Low Number of Colours
The lowest number of colours of projectors of a similar spec and age to the EB-U32 is 1M and the highest is 1,100M. The Epson EB-U32 has one of the lower numbers of colours (only 1.07 million) amongst projectors of this age.
Quite Loud Noise Level
The noise levels of 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than a year ago range from 29dB to 39dB. The Epson EB-U32 has one of the louder noise levels (37 decibels) amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.
We compared this multimedia projector to all the other 37dB noise level multimedia projectors and we think the EB-U04[pl_3024676_price], and the VS340[pl_3043984_price] both from Epson which is cheaper; or the Epson EH-TW570[plb_2577305_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.
3 Other reasons to consider the Epson EB-U32
Running Costs Are OK
The EB-U32 has an average running cost of £91 over 1 year based on average energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 25 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than a year.
Released Over a Year Ago
Epson released the EB-U32 over a year ago.
Average Projector Brightness
The Epson EB-U32 has a pretty average projector brightness (3,200 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the EB-U32.
There are a number of other 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available which you might want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Epson EB-W32[plb_3059517_price].
Data projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth considering include the DX881ST[pl_3219949_price] (3,300 ANSI lumens), or the DW882ST[pl_3704440_price] (3,600 ANSI lumens) both from Vivitek which is also cheaper.
