Epson Has Good Reviews for Its Data Projectors

Epson has good average reviews for its 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors as well as across its entire multimedia projector range compared to other brands.

Chart Edit

1400 X 1050 (SXGA+) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Epson PowerLite 585W is 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+). That's over four times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by multimedia projectors of this spec and age. This Epson data projector also support graphics resolutions of 1280 x 960, 1600 x 900, 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA) and 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PowerLite 585W the resolution ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the PowerLite 585W, the PowerLite 585W does not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Epson PowerLite 585W does not support Full HD projection, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the PowerLite 585W also do not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Epson 1975W[plb_3009713_price] which also has a higher rating.

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the PowerLite 585W do not support WiFi connectivity. The PowerLite 585W is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

It is worth also looking at alternative data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Benq W1500[plb_1561671_price], or the Epson PowerLite 1222[plb_2225031_price] which also has a higher rating.

Very Low Number of Colours

With a number of colours of only 1.07 million, the Epson PowerLite 585W has a fairly low number of colours compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been around for a similar time to the PowerLite 585W. Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago the numbers of colours range from 1M to 1,100M.

Chart Edit

Data projectors of this age and type have weights of between 360g and 54kg. At 5.3 kilograms, the PowerLite 585W is fairly heavy compared to most of the other data projectors of this age and type.

3 Other reasons to consider the Epson PowerLite 585W

Released Over Two Years Ago

It was over two years ago when Epson released the PowerLite 585W.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,300 ANSI lumens, the PowerLite 585W has a pretty average projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PowerLite 585W.

We compared all the other 3,300 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this projector and we think the Epson BrightLink 595WI+[plb_2175966_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Data projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth considering include the NEC M352[plb_2250187_price] (3,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

With a noise level of 35 decibels, the PowerLite 585W has a fairly average noise level compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PowerLite 585W.

Other 35dB noise level projectors currently available that you might also want to look at include because of it's better review score, the Epson PowerLite 580[plb_2175976_price].

If you would consider a multimedia projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Acer P5307[plb_1569831_price] (35dB).
