8 Reasons For

Epson Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

We checked the reviews from users and experts of hundreds of data projectors to determine an average rating for each multimedia projector brand. On average Epson data projectors have good ratings from owners and experts.

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

The projector brightness of projectors that are a similar age to the Z8050WNL range from 2,200 ANSI lumens to 85,000 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 7,000 ANSI lumens, the Epson Z8050WNL has one of the brighter projector brightness amongst 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The Z8050WNL supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this projector). This multimedia projector also support graphics resolutions of 800 x 600 (SVGA) and 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+). The worst resolution of all projectors of this spec and age is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 4096 x 2160.

Chart Edit

Two Lamps

Most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the Z8050WNL only have one lamp, however the Epson Z8050WNL has two lamps.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Uniformity

With a uniformity of 90 percent, the Epson Z8050WNL has one of the bigger uniformities amongst projectors of this age. The uniformities of projectors of a similar age and spec to the Z8050WNL range from 75% to 95%, and the average uniformity is 85%.

Chart Edit

Very Bright Colour Light Output

The dimmest colour light output of multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to the Z8050WNL is 5,000 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 7,000 ANSI lumens, and the average colour light output is 6,100 ANSI lumens. The Z8050WNL has one of the brightest colour light outputs (7,000 ANSI lumens) amongst 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Bright White Light Output

The white light outputs of multimedia projectors of this age and type range from 5,000 ANSI lumens to 7,000 ANSI lumens, and the average white light output is 6,100 ANSI lumens. When compared to other multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the Z8050WNL that we have assessed, the Z8050WNL's white light output of 7,000 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Transfer Rate

This projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data transfer rate, which is the most commonly found ethernet LAN data transfer rate on data projectors of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

11 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The Z8050WNL does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the Z8050WNL which have a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Hitachi CP-AX2504 (£501.29).

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Z8050WNL does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the Z8050WNL also do not support 3D image projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the Hitachi CP-AX2504 (£501.29), or the Benq SX920 DLP XGA (£933.70) is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Z8050WNL does not support Full HD projection, unlike most of the other data projectors of this type and age.

Alternative data projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might want to consider include the Hitachi CP-AX2504 (£501.29), or the Infocus IN1118HDLC (£1,152.00).

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the Z8050WNL, the Z8050WNL does not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in alternative multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Epson EB-G6370 (£1,932.52), or the Hitachi CP-WU8451 (£2,038.80).

Running Costs Are Very High

The Z8050WNL is in the most expensive 15% of all 14 projectors of a comparable spec and age that we have assessed for running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the Z8050WNL will cost £305 over 1 year to run.

Chart

Quite Low Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

The average maximum horizontal synchronization of comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the Z8050WNL is 96kHz. The Z8050WNL has one of the lower maximum horizontal synchronization (only 80 kilohertz) amongst data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Low Number of Colours

At only 1.07 million, the Epson Z8050WNL has a fairly low number of colours compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age. The average number of colours of projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z8050WNL is 540M, and the numbers of colours range from 1M to 1,100M.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level in Economy Mode

The quietest noise level in economy mode of 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than a year is 27dB and the loudest is 35dB. With a noise level in economy mode of 32 decibels, the Epson Z8050WNL has one of the louder noise levels in economy mode amongst 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Lamp Power

Across all the projectors of a comparable age and spec to the Z8050WNL the lamp power range from 220W to 380W. With a lamp power of only 330 Watts, the Z8050WNL has a quite small lamp power compared to most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Heavy

At 22 kilograms, the Epson Z8050WNL is quite heavy compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the Z8050WNL. The lightest projector of this spec and age is 1.6kg heavy and the heaviest is 24kg.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Power Consumption in Economy Mode

Across all the multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the Z8050WNL the power consumption in economy mode range from 290W to 830W, and the average power consumption in economy mode is 510W. With a power consumption in economy mode of 776 Watts, the Z8050WNL has one of the higher power consumption in economy mode amongst 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

3 Other reasons to consider the Epson Z8050WNL

Released Over Two Years Ago

It was over two years ago when this projector was released.

Average Noise Level

At 38 decibels, the Z8050WNL has a relatively typical noise level compared to most of the other projectors that came out more than a year ago.

If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might also want to look at the EB-G6070W (£2,028.91) (37dB), the EB-G6370 (£1,932.52) (37dB), or the EB-4770W (£1,182.13) (38dB) all from Epson.
