5 Reasons For

Epson Projectors Have Good Reviews

We calculated the average reviews for all Epson projectors and also specifically for Epson 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors and found that in both cases Epson had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.

Supports Full HD Projection

The EB-Z9870U supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the EB-Z9870U do not support Full HD projection.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including the Viewsonic PJD7820HD[plb_1536139_price], or the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 2030[plb_2254510_price] which has better reviews.

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

Across all the comparable spec projectors that have been available for more than two years the projector brightness range from 700 ANSI lumens to 11,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,200 ANSI lumens. At 7,500 ANSI lumens, the Epson EB-Z9870U has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the EB-Z9870U.

Chart Edit

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The Epson EB-Z9870U has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a XGA (1024x768) projector, which is the most common resolution.

A WUXGA (1920x1200) native projector resolution is in fact the best resolution across all data projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

The worst resolution amongst comparable types of data projector is SVGA (800x600).

Fairly Big Lamp Power

The EB-Z9870U has a fairly big lamp power (380 Watts) compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago. The smallest lamp power of 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago is 190W, the biggest is 2,400W, and the average lamp power is 290W.

13 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The EB-Z9870U does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the EB-Z9870U which have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the EB-Z9870U support 3D image projection, however the Epson EB-Z9870U does not support 3D image projection.

Alternative multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might also want to consider include the LG PA72G[plb_1580755_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The EB-Z9870U does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the EB-Z9870U also do not support WiFi connectivity.

There are a number of other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity which you might also want to look at including the Optoma EX400[plb_2110318_price], or the Epson EB-Z11005[plb_2549634_price].
