9 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The Epson BrightLink 475WI does not support 3D. Most of the other projectors of this age and type also do not support 3D.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support 3D to this projector and we think the NEC NP-M311W[plb_1525270_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD

Most 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to the BrightLink 475WI do not support full HD. The BrightLink 475WI is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a full HD and we think the Epson 475Wi[plb_1778250_price], or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A[plb_1884022_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

We compared all the other projectors which also support wi-Fi to this multimedia projector and we think the Epson BrightLink 436Wi[plb_1875520_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

At only 2,600 ANSI lumens, the Epson BrightLink 475WI has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the BrightLink 475WI.

There are a number of alternative 2,600 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available that you might want to look at including the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 500[plb_2231990_price] which has better reviews.

If you would prefer a data projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the Sony VPL-SW235[plb_2284441_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens), or the Promethean UST-P1[plb_2713404_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens).
