6 Reasons For

Epson Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

Projectors produced by Epson have good ratings on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just projectors) and found that Epson also has good ratings across its entire range.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Epson PowerLite G5910 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the PowerLite G5910 do not have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Acer H7531D is also worth considering.

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of projectors that were launched more than two years ago is 2,900 ANSI lumens. The PowerLite G5910 has one of the brighter projector brightness (5,200 ANSI lumens) amongst projectors of this age.

If you are looking for a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the Viewsonic Pro10100 (£2,588.40) (6,000 ANSI lumens), or the Epson EB-Z9800W (£7,942.18) (8,300 ANSI lumens).

Very High Number of Colours

With a number of colours of 1,073.4 million, the PowerLite G5910 has a fairly high number of colours compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for more than two years. The numbers of colours of multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PowerLite G5910 range from 1M to 1,100M.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Uniformity

With a uniformity of 90 percent, the PowerLite G5910 has a quite big uniformity compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age. Projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PowerLite G5910 have uniformities of between 80% and 130%.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

13 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The PowerLite G5910 does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other projectors that were launched more than two years ago do support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D image projection to this data projector and we think the Benq W7000+ is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Epson PowerLite G5910 does not support Full HD projection, although keep in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age also do not support Full HD projection.

It is worth also looking at alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Benq W7000+, or the Panasonic PTAE7000U which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The PowerLite G5910 does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth noting that most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PowerLite G5910 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Alternative multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might also want to look at include the LG PW700 (£337.00), or the Optoma W305ST (£535.65).

The highest resolution of the PowerLite G5910 is XGA (1024x768). That's 62% less resolution than the most common native projector resolution of 1080p (1920x1080). The resolution of all comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to the PowerLite G5910 ranges from SVGA (800x600) to 1080p (1920x1080).

Chart Edit

Only 640 X 480 Pixels Maximum Digital Resolution

The PowerLite G5910 has a maximum maximum digital resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. That's 87% less maximum digital resolution than the most common maximum digital resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels.

A 640 x 480 pixels maximum digital resolution is in fact the worst maximum digital resolution across all similar spec data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PowerLite G5910.

The best maximum digital resolution across comparable types of projector is 1920 x 1280 pixels.

The PowerLite G5910 is a one VGA (D-Sub) port projector.

Chart Edit

Running Costs Are High

The PowerLite G5910 is in the most expensive 3% of all 102 projectors of a comparable age and type that we have looked at for 1 year running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the PowerLite G5910 is £434.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 38dB noise level projectors currently available including the Vivitek Qumi Q7 which has better reviews.

Projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth considering include the Hitachi CP-AW3019WNM (£1,307.36) (38dB).
