8 Reasons For

Good Brand

Based on 736 user and expert reviews, Epson has good ratings for its projectors. Epson also has good ratings specifically for its 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors compared to other manufacturers.

Low Running Costs

Based on typical energy prices we estimate that the 1 year running cost of the EX7240 is only £91, which is in the cheapest 23% of all 18 comparable spec projectors that were released in the last year.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other latest 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors, the Epson EX7240 has a built-in speaker.

Alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might want to look at include the Vivitek DX813[plb_3704518_price] which is cheaper.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Vivitek DW832[plb_3704544_price], or the Infocus IN128HDX[plb_3451179_price].
