The highest resolution supported by the Epson PowerLite 965 is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by data projectors of a comparable type and age to the PowerLite 965. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this projector. This Epson multimedia projector also support graphics resolutions of 1280 x 960, 1366 x 768, 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

If this data projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the NEC M362 (£575.12) (3,600 ANSI lumens), or the Acer P1515 (4,000 ANSI lumens).

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years, the Epson PowerLite 965 does not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years do not support Full HD projection. The PowerLite 965 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Epson 1975W which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
