8 Reasons For

Epson Has Good Multimedia Projector Reviews

Epson has good average ratings for its 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors as well as across its entire projector range compared to other manufacturers.

Supports WiFi Connectivity

The EB Z9870U supports WiFi connectivity. Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the EB Z9870U do not support WiFi connectivity.

Other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might also want to look at include the EB-Z11005[pl_2549634_price], or the EB-Z11000[pl_2549617_price] both from Epson or the Optoma EX400[plb_2110318_price].

At 8,700 ANSI lumens, the Epson EB Z9870U has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Data projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth looking at include the Epson EB-Z10005U[plb_3060343_price] (10,000 ANSI lumens).

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

2 Other reasons to consider the Epson EB Z9870U

Released Over Two Years Ago

This projector was released over two years ago.

Average Noise Level

At 35 decibels, the EB Z9870U has a relatively average noise level compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age.

We compared this data projector to all the other 35dB noise level multimedia projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the Viewsonic PJD7820HD[plb_1536139_price] is also worth considering.
