10 Reasons For

Average Expert Reviews

Data projector expert review website PC Mag scored this projector 70 out of 100.

Good Brand

Reasonably Priced

One person who reviewed this projector said that it was cheap. Expert review site Pcmag.com said “The Epson VS340 XGA 3LCD Data Projector is a capable budget model that provides portability, solid data-” in their Epson VS340 review.

Robust

One customer mentioned in their reviews that it was well made.

Good Product Quality

One Epson VS340 reviewer wrote in their reviews that this projector was good quality.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the VS340, the Epson VS340 has a built-in speaker.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the EH-TW570[pl_2577305_price], the EB-U04[pl_3024676_price], and the EB-W32[pl_3059517_price] all from Epson which has better reviews is also worth considering.

That's over three times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 800 x 600 (SVGA) (which is also supported by this data projector). In addition, this projector support graphics resolutions of 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 1280 x 800 (WXGA) and 1280 x 1024 (SXGA). Across all data projectors that were launched more than a year ago the resolution ranges from 800 x 600 (SVGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).

9 Reasons Against

Inferior Picture Quality

One person who purchased it considered that it did not have good picture quality. Pcmag.com said in their review of this projector on expert review site PC Mag last year “Our testing showed mediocre image quality and a feeble soun” although they rated the Epson VS340 4 stars.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most data projectors of a comparable type and age to the VS340 do not support 3D image projection. The Epson VS340 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support 3D image projection to this multimedia projector and we think the Epson EH-TW570[plb_2577305_price], the Vivitek DH558[plb_3383971_price], or the Infocus IN118HDXC[plb_2945391_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Epson VS340 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than a year ago also do not support Full HD projection.

Other projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might want to consider include the Epson EB-U04[plb_3024676_price], the Vivitek DH558[plb_3383971_price], or the Infocus IN118HDXC[plb_2945391_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Epson VS340 does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the VS340 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

It is worth considering other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the EB-U04[pl_3024676_price], the EB-W32[pl_3059517_price], or the EB-W31[pl_3193910_price] all from Epson which is also higher rated.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The Epson VS340 has a fairly dim projector brightness (only 2,800 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than a year. Across all the similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the VS340 the projector brightness range from 2,000 ANSI lumens to 5,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,300 ANSI lumens.

Data projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth looking at include the Epson VS240[plb_3043986_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens and cheaper); or the Epson VS345[plb_3043985_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the Vivitek DH558[plb_3383971_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
