8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other projectors of this age and spec, the BrightLink 485Wi does not support 3D.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a 3D and we think the Optoma TW610STi[plb_1749808_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD

We compared all the other projectors which also support full HD to this projector and we think the Infocus IN3118HD[plb_2221772_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Epson BrightLink 485Wi does not support wi-Fi, although this is within the context that most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the BrightLink 485Wi also do not support wi-Fi.

Running Costs Are Very High

Based on typical energy prices we estimate that the BrightLink 485Wi will cost £156 over 1 year to run, which makes it one of the most expensive to run projectors of a comparable spec and age.
