Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The Epson 1970w does not support full HD, unlike most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to this multimedia projector which support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also support full HD including the Optoma EH490 (£1,025.47), the Acer U5520B (£1,042.66), or the Hitachi CP-TW2505 (£1,072.44).

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Epson 1970w has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to this multimedia projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Optoma EH490 (£1,025.47), the Acer U5520B (£1,042.66), or the Hitachi CP-X5550 (£1,059.60).

Projector

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as this multimedia projector the projector brightnesses range from 600 ANSI lumens to 16,000 ANSI lumens. At 5,000 ANSI lumens, the Epson 1970w has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as this multimedia projector.

If you would prefer a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the CP-WX5500 (£1,198.80) (5,200 ANSI lumens), or the CP-X5550 (£1,059.60) (5,800 ANSI lumens) both from Hitachi or the Vivitek DW3321 (£1,150) (5,100 ANSI lumens).
