4 Other reasons to consider the Epson PowerLite 97

Average Running Costs

Based on average usage levels and energy prices we estimate that the PowerLite 97 will cost £116 over 1 year to run, which is typical compared to the other 136 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago.
