10 Reasons For

Epson Has Excellent Reviews for Its Data Projectors

Epson is one of the best data projector manufacturers according to average reviews from owners and experts, and Epson also has excellent ratings for its 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that are older than two years, the PowerLite X14 has a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors with a built-in speaker including the Mitsubishi Electric WD720U-G, or the Hitachi CP-DW25WN which have a better Kagoo Rating™.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the PowerLite X14 is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's 8% more resolution than the most frequently found graphics resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). This data projector also supports a graphics resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA). 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are more than two years old graphics resolutions range from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).

If you want a projector with a higher resolution then you might want to also look at the M311 (£342.00) (720 x 480,720 x 576,832 x 624,1152 x 870,1280 x 960,1600 x 900,1280 x 720 (HD 720 and higher rated),1280 x 768 (WXGA and higher rated),1280 x 800 (WXGA and higher rated),1366 х 768,1400 x 1050 (SXGA+ and higher rated),1440 x 900 (WXGA+ and higher rated),1600 x 1200 (UXGA and higher rated),1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+ and higher rated),1920 x 1080 (HD 1080 and higher rated),640 x 480 (VGA and higher rated),800 x 600 (SVGA and higher rated),1024 x 768 (XGA and higher rated),1152 x 864 (XGA+ and higher rated), and higher rated), the VE281 (£444.79) (720 x 480, 720 x 576, 832 x 624, 1152 x 870, 1024 x 768 (XGA and higher rated), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA and higher rated), 1280 x 720 (HD 720 and higher rated), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+ and higher rated), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA and higher rated), 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080 and higher rated), 640 x 480 (VGA and higher rated), 800 x 600 (SVGA and higher rated) and higher rated), or the M271 (£295.00) (720 x 480,720 x 576,832 x 624,1280 x 960,1600 x 900,1024 x 768 (XGA and higher rated),1152 x 864 (XGA+ and higher rated),1280 x 1024 (SXGA and higher rated),1280 x 720 (HD 720 and higher rated),1280 x 768 (WXGA and higher rated),1366 х 768,1400 x 1050 (SXGA+ and higher rated),1440 x 900 (WXGA+ and higher rated),1600 x 1200 (UXGA and higher rated),1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+ and higher rated),1920 x 1080 (HD 1080 and higher rated),640 x 480 (VGA and higher rated),800 x 600,1152 x 870,1280 x and higher rated) all from NEC.

Chart Edit

A Bit Short

At only 77 millimeters, the PowerLite X14 is quite short compared to most of the other projectors of this age and type. 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the PowerLite X14 have heights of between 5.2mm and 510mm, and the average height is 130mm.

Chart Edit

10 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most of the projectors of a similar type and age to the PowerLite X14, including the PowerLite X14, do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the BrightLink 436Wi, the EB-430 LW, or the BrightLink Pro 1410Wi all from Epson are also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most of the comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years, including the PowerLite X14, do not support 3D image projection.

Alternative data projectors with a 3D image projection that you might want to also look at include the DW312, or the TW695 (£515.48) both from Optoma or the Mitsubishi Electric WD720U-G.

4 Other reasons to consider the Epson PowerLite X14

OK Running Costs

Based on typical energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the PowerLite X14 will cost £99 over 1 year to run, which is typical compared to the other 67 projectors of this spec and age.

Over Two Years Old

Epson released the PowerLite X14 over two years ago.

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,000 ANSI lumens, the PowerLite X14 has a fairly average projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the PowerLite X14.

It is worth also looking at different 3000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors including the Optoma EX685 which have a better Kagoo Rating™.

If this Epson projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to also look at the EB-1400 (£1,522.80) (3100 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the EB-1410 (£1,734.79) (3100 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Epson or the Optoma DW312 (3200 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the PowerLite X14 is XGA (1024x768). That's 23% less resolution than a WXGA (1280x800) projector, which is the most common resolution.

Other projectors that have a resolution of XGA (1024x768) that you might want to consider include the EB-X12, or the EB-1935 (£839.83) both from Epson or the Optoma TX565UT-3D which have a better Kagoo Rating™.

If the resolution of this projector is too low for you then you might want to also look at the EB-435W LW (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated), or the EB-425W (£778.51) (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated) both from Epson or the Hitachi CP-DW25WN (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated).
