There are a number of alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to look at including the EB-W31[pl_3193910_price], or the VS345[pl_3043985_price] both from Epson or the Infocus IN118HDXC[plb_2945391_price] which has better reviews.

Across all the projectors of a similar spec and age to the VS240 the service life of lamp in economic mode range from 3,500h to 10,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 8,400h. At 10,000 hours, the Epson VS240 has a quite long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Two USB 2.0 Ports

The Epson VS240 has more USB 2.0 ports than most of the multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the VS240. This multimedia projector is a two USB 2.0 port data projector compared to most of the projectors that were released one year ago which only have one USB 2.0 port.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the VS240, the Epson VS240 does not support 3D image projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the Infocus IN118HDXC[plb_2945391_price], or the Epson EH-TW570[plb_2577305_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most projectors of this spec and age do not support Full HD projection. The Epson VS240 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

Other projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might also want to consider include the Infocus IN118HDXC[plb_2945391_price].

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Epson VS240 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VS240 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

It is worth considering other multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Epson EB-W31[plb_3193910_price] which is also higher rated.

Only SVGA (800x600) Native Projector Resolution

The Epson VS240 has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 39% less resolution than a XGA (1024x768) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution. Across all comparable spec multimedia projectors that were launched more than a year ago the worst resolution is nHD (640x360) and the best is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level

15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the VS240 have noise levels of between 29dB and 39dB. With a noise level of 37 decibels, the Epson VS240 has a fairly loud noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that were released one year ago.

Other 37dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available that you might want to look at include the EH-TW570[pl_2577305_price], or the VS345[pl_3043985_price] both from Epson which has better reviews.

2 Other reasons to consider the Epson VS240

Released Over a Year Ago

This 15000:1 contrast ratio projector has been on the market for over a year.

Average Projector Brightness

The Epson VS240 has a relatively average projector brightness (3,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for more than a year.

We compared all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors to this multimedia projector and we think because of it's better review score, the EH-TW570[pl_2577305_price], and the VS345[pl_3043985_price] both from Epson is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the EB-X31[pl_3078403_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens), or the EB-W31[pl_3193910_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens) both from Epson which also has a higher rating.
