9 Reasons For

Epson Has Good Projector Reviews

We calculated the average reviews for all Epson projectors and also specifically for Epson 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors and found that in both cases Epson had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The PowerLite S27 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the PowerLite S27 also have a built-in speaker.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think because of it's better review score, the Epson Home Cinema 600 is also worth considering.

1400 X 1050 (SXGA+) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Epson PowerLite S27 is 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+). That's over four times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution supported by comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the PowerLite S27. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this multimedia projector. In addition, this data projector support graphics resolutions of 1280 x 800, 1366 x 768, 1024 x 768 (XGA) and 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 1440 x 900 (WXGA+). Across all data projectors that were released one year ago the worst resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

At 10,000 hours, the PowerLite S27 has a fairly long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other projectors that came out more than a year ago. Across all the data projectors of this age and spec the service life of lamp in economic mode range from 3,500h to 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 7,400h.

Chart Edit

Two Component Video in Ports

The PowerLite S27 is a two component video in port multimedia projector. Most of the other similar spec projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PowerLite S27 only have one component video in port.

Chart Edit

Two Audio in Ports

Most data projectors of a similar type and age to the PowerLite S27 have between one and two audio in ports, including the PowerLite S27 which has two audio in ports.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than a year ago.

Chart Edit

Very Light

With a weight of only 2.5 kilograms, the PowerLite S27 is quite light compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the PowerLite S27. The weights of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the PowerLite S27 range from 430g to 68kg, and the average weight is 5.5kg.

Chart Edit

Narrow

At only 297 millimeters, the Epson PowerLite S27 is quite narrow compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar spec and age to the PowerLite S27. The average width of comparable spec data projectors that were launched around the same time as the PowerLite S27 is 360mm.

Chart Edit

12 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The PowerLite S27 does not support 3D image projection, unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than a year ago which support 3D image projection.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Epson Home Cinema 600 which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most of the other projectors of this age and type support Full HD projection, however the PowerLite S27 does not support Full HD projection.

Other projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might want to consider include the Epson Home Cinema 600 which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other data projectors of this age and type, the Epson PowerLite S27 does not support WiFi connectivity.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might also want to consider including the Epson EX7235.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only SVGA (800x600) Native Projector Resolution

The PowerLite S27 has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 39% less resolution than the most frequently found native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768). Across all projectors of a similar type and age to the PowerLite S27 the best resolution is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) and the worst is nHD (640x360).

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than a year is 600 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 12,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,700 ANSI lumens. The PowerLite S27 has a fairly dim projector brightness (only 2,700 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the PowerLite S27.

We compared all the other 2,700 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors to this data projector and we think because of it's better review score, the EB-X27 (£316.99), and the PowerLite X27 both from Epson is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the Acer H6517ST (£456.00) (3,000 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

Quite Dim Brightness in Economy Mode

Across all the multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PowerLite S27 the brightness in economy mode range from 400 ANSI lumens to 2,600 ANSI lumens, and the average brightness in economy mode is 2,000 ANSI lumens. At only 1,890 ANSI lumen, the Epson PowerLite S27 has a fairly dim brightness in economy mode compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the PowerLite S27.

Chart Edit

Across all the data projectors of a similar spec and age to the PowerLite S27 the noise levels range from 25dB to 47dB, and the average noise level is 34dB.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 37dB noise level projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the PowerLite W29, or the 965H (£683.59) both from Epson.
