Networking

Supports Wi-Fi

The EB-1970W supports Wi-Fi. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to this multimedia projector do not support Wi-Fi.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors which support Wi-Fi currently available including cheaper projectors such as the Benq W1070+W.

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The EB-1970W has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as this multimedia projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth considering one of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including a cheaper projector such as the Panasonic PT-TW341 (£1,026.06) or you might consider a higher rated projector such as the Optoma X600 (£1,033.90).

There are a number of other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) which you might want to consider including the Infocus IN134 (£790.68).

Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The Epson EB-1970W does not support full HD. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago also do not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support full HD including the Acer H9505, or the Epson EB-1980WU (£999.99); or the Benq W1350 (£1,059.99).

HD-Ready

The Epson EB-1970W is HD-Ready, as are most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to this multimedia projector.

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of similar spec projectors that have been around for a comparable time to this multimedia projector is 300 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 20,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,400 ANSI lumens.

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to consider the Panasonic PT-VX600 (5,500 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

Very Short Service Life of Lamp

With a service life of lamp of only 3,000 hours, the EB-1970W has a quite short service life of lamp compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for more than two years. Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as this projector the service life of lamps range from 500h to 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 6,400h.

Performance

Quite Loud Noise Level

The quietest noise level of projectors of this type and age is 28dB, the loudest is 49dB, and the average noise level is 36dB. With a noise level of 39 decibels, the EB-1970W has one of the louder noise levels amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other 39dB noise level projectors and we think cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Epson EB-1980WU (£999.99), and the Acer U5313 (£909.97) are also worth considering.

Other data projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Vivitek D966HD (£925) (40dB and cheaper).
