10 Reasons For

Epson Projectors Have Good Reviews

We calculated the average reviews for all Epson projectors and also specifically for Epson projectors and found that in both cases Epson had good reviews compared to other brands.

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 7,000 ANSI lumens, the Epson G6870 XGA has one of the brighter projector brightness amongst projectors of this age. Across all the projectors that were released around the same time as the G6870 XGA the projector brightness range from 500 ANSI lumens to 8,200 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,400 ANSI lumens.

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the Panasonic PT-DX820BE (£4,405.20) (8,200 ANSI lumens).

1400 X 1050 (SXGA+) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the G6870 XGA is 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+). That's over four times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by projectors of a comparable age and spec to the G6870 XGA. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this projector. In addition, this multimedia projector support a graphics resolution of 800 x 600 (SVGA) and 1280 x 1024 (SXGA). The worst resolution of all data projectors that came out around the same time as the G6870 XGA is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Three Audio Out Ports

The G6870 XGA is a three audio out port data projector. Most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as the G6870 XGA only have between one and two audio out ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Uniformity

At 90 percent, the G6870 XGA has a quite big uniformity compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the G6870 XGA. Across all the projectors that are a comparable age to the G6870 XGA the uniformities range from 80% to 130%, and the average uniformity is 87%.

Chart Edit

Very Bright Colour Light Output

Across all the projectors that were released more than a year ago the colour light outputs range from 1,500 ANSI lumens to 7,000 ANSI lumens. At 7,000 ANSI lumens, the G6870 XGA has a very bright colour light output compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the G6870 XGA.

Chart Edit

Very Bright White Light Output

The white light output of the Epson G6870 XGA of 7,000 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest amongst projectors of a comparable type and age to the G6870 XGA. The dimmest white light output of comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the G6870 XGA is 1,500 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 7,000 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Very Big Lamp Power

The smallest lamp power of projectors that have been available for around the same time as the G6870 XGA is 50W and the biggest is 380W. With a lamp power of 380 Watts, the G6870 XGA has a very big lamp power compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the G6870 XGA.

Chart Edit

Very High Horizontal Resolution

The lowest horizontal resolution of comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the G6870 XGA is 540 lines and the highest is 1,100 lines. When compared to other projectors that were released one year ago that we have assessed the horizontal resolution of, the G6870 XGA's horizontal resolution of 1,024 line is one of the highest.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Transfer Rate

This data projector has a 100|1000 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data transfer rate, which is typical of many similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to it.

Chart Edit

13 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The G6870 XGA does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the G6870 XGA which have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The G6870 XGA does not support 3D image projection, unlike most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the G6870 XGA which support 3D image projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the Sony VPL-HW65ES is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the G6870 XGA, the G6870 XGA does not support Full HD projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the VPL-VW320ES, or the VPL-VW350ES both from Sony which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most projectors that have been on the market for more than a year do not support WiFi connectivity. The G6870 XGA is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the Vivitek Qumi Q6 (£306.80) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

High Running Costs

The average running cost of the G6870 XGA is £193 over 1 year based on average usage levels and energy prices, which makes it one of the more expensive to run projectors of a similar age and type.

Chart

Quite Short Lamp Service Life

Multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the G6870 XGA have lamp service lives of between 2,000h and 30,000h. When compared to other projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the G6870 XGA that we have assessed, the Epson G6870 XGA's lamp service life of only 2,000 hours is one of the shortest.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

Comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to the G6870 XGA have service life of lamp in economic mode of between 2,500h and 10,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 6,800h. At only 4,000 hours, the Epson G6870 XGA has a quite short service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the G6870 XGA.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Maximum Vertical Synchronization

Across all the data projectors that have been on the market for more than a year the maximum vertical synchronization range from 0.12kHz to 120kHz, and the average maximum vertical synchronization is 90kHz. At only 85 kilohertz, the G6870 XGA has a fairly low maximum vertical synchronization compared to most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the G6870 XGA.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Port

Most projectors of a comparable age and spec to the G6870 XGA have between one and two USB 2.0 ports, including the G6870 XGA which has one USB 2.0 port.

Chart Edit

Only One HDMI Port

The G6870 XGA is a one HDMI port multimedia projector.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level

The G6870 XGA has a quite loud noise level (39 decibels) compared to most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the G6870 XGA. The average noise level of similar spec projectors that were released one year ago is 32dB.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 39dB noise level data projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the Vivitek Q7 Plus.

Heavy

Across all the projectors that have been around for around the same time as the G6870 XGA the weights range from 9.7g to 18kg, and the average weight is 4.4kg. With a weight of 9.8 kilograms, the Epson G6870 XGA is one of the heavier similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the G6870 XGA amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite High Power Consumption in Economy Mode

Across all the data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the G6870 XGA the power consumption in economy mode range from 85W to 430W. With a power consumption in economy mode of 421 Watts, the G6870 XGA has one of the higher power consumption in economy mode amongst projectors of this age.
