A number of people who purchased this projector considered that it was good quality. Pcmag.com wrote “It provides good text quality and a wide range of connection choices” in their review.

Good Technical Features

Reasonably Priced

One person who bought the product concluded that it was cheap. Pcmag.com said in their review on expert review site PC Mag “The Epson PowerLite W17 WXGA 3LCD Projector is a capable, low-priced data projector for schools or businesses” and scored it 70 out of 100.

Good Sound Quality

One customer considered that the Epson PowerLite W17 had good sound quality.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The PowerLite W17 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years also have a built-in speaker.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker and we think because of it's better review score, the Acer X1311, the Epson PowerLite 1222, and the NEC NP-M282 is also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

In addition, this projector 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).

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Epson PowerLite W17 does not support 3D image projection, although this is within the context that most of the other projectors of this spec and age also do not support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Acer X1111, the Vivitek H1180HD, or the Panasonic PT-DZ21.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other similar spec projectors that were launched more than two years ago, the Epson PowerLite W17 does not support Full HD projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Acer X1311, the Panasonic PT-DZ13, or the Epson 1975W is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Epson PowerLite W17 does not support WiFi connectivity, although this is within the context that most of the other projectors of this type and age also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the PowerLite 1222, or the EB-X03 both from Epson or the Benq W1500 which also has a higher rating.

Quite Small Lamp Power

With a lamp power of only 200 Watts, the PowerLite W17 has one of the smaller lamp power amongst similar spec projectors of this age. Across all the projectors of this age and type the lamp power range from 15W to 840W.

Chart Edit

Only One HDMI Port

Most similar spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PowerLite W17 have between one and two HDMI ports, including the PowerLite W17 which has one HDMI port.

4 Other reasons to consider the Epson PowerLite W17

This projector was released over three years ago.

Average Noise Level

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 37dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the PowerLite 97, the EB-S17 (£324.47), or the PowerLite 965 all from Epson.

Other 2,800 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available which you might want to look at include because of it's better review score, the Infocus IN134 (£782.60).

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to consider the Epson PowerLite X21 (3,000 ANSI lumens), the Acer U5213 (£1,002.12) (3,000 ANSI lumens), or the Benq MX852 (£697.30) (3,000 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.
