8 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

We checked the expert and user reviews of hundreds of data projectors to determine an average rating for each projector brand. On average data projectors made by Epson have excellent ratings from experts and users.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the Powerlite 1870 have a built-in speaker, including the Powerlite 1870.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think a higher rated product such as the VDL-DX140[pl_1462452_price], and the VDL-DX120[pl_1462453_price] both from Sony are also worth considering.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Powerlite 1870 does not support Full HD projection, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other data projectors that are more than two years old also do not support Full HD projection.

It is worth also looking at different multimedia projectors with a Full HD projection including the LG PB62G[plb_1488637_price], the Sony VPL-DW125[plb_1443008_price], or the Infocus IN8601[plb_1796831_price].

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other data projectors that are more than two years old, the Powerlite 1870 does not support 3D image projection.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the LG PB62G[plb_1488637_price], or the Infocus IN8601[plb_1796831_price] are also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most of the 2500:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the Powerlite 1870 do not support WiFi connectivity, including the Powerlite 1870.

We compared all the other projectors with a WiFi connectivity to this data projector and we think the Sony VPL-SW536[plb_1482370_price] are also worth considering.

Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The Epson Powerlite 1870 has one of the shorter service life of lamp in economic mode (only 4,000 hours) amongst 2500:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

Very Loud Noise Level

With a noise level of 39 decibels, the Powerlite 1870 has a very loud noise level compared to most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago. The average noise level of projectors that are more than two years old is 33dB.

We compared all the other 39dB noise level multimedia projectors to this projector and we think the DELL 7700[plb_1406488_price] which have a better Kagoo Rating™ are also worth considering.

If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Panasonic PT-LX30[plb_1787312_price] (37dB and higher rated).
