8 Reasons For

Epson Projectors Have Good Reviews

Epson is one of the superior projector brands according to average expert and user reviews, and Epson also has good reviews for its 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Running Costs Are Low

The Powerlite W28+ has an average 1 year running cost of only £89 based on typical usage levels and energy prices, which makes it one of the cheaper to run 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than a year ago.

Supports WiFi Connectivity

The Epson Powerlite W28+ supports WiFi connectivity. Most of the other projectors of this age and type do not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative data projectors which support WiFi connectivity currently available including the Epson EX7235 which has better reviews.

Alternative data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might want to consider include the Hitachi CPX2541WN (£401.56).

Average Noise Level

At 37 decibels, the Epson Powerlite W28+ has a pretty average noise level compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar age and type to the Powerlite W28+.

We compared all the other 37dB noise level projectors to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the PowerLite X27, the PowerLite W29, and the 965H (£683.50) all from Epson is also worth considering.
