Video

Supports Full HD

The Epson EB-1980WU supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as this data projector do not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors which support full HD currently available including the Benq W1350 (£1,059.99) which has better reviews; or the Optoma EH500 (£924.05) which is cheaper.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support full HD to this multimedia projector and we think the Acer H9505 is also worth considering.

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The EB-1980WU has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to this data projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

Alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to consider include because of its better review score, the Optoma X600 (£1,033.90).

Alternative multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might want to look at include the Acer H9505, or the Panasonic PT-TW341 (£1,026.06).

Projector

WUXGA (1920x1200) Resolution

The highest resolution of the Epson EB-1980WU is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) data projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

A WUXGA (1920x1200) projector native resolution is in fact the best resolution amongst all projectors of a comparable type and age to this projector.

The worst resolution across similar types of data projector is SVGA (800x600).

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

At 4,400 ANSI lumens, the Epson EB-1980WU has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago. 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to this projector have projector brightnesses of between 300 ANSI lumens and 20,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,400 ANSI lumens.

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the Panasonic PT-VX600 (5,500 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.

Fairly Loud Noise Level

At 39 decibels, the EB-1980WU has a fairly loud noise level compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age. Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as this projector the noise levels range from 28dB to 49dB, and the average noise level is 36dB.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 39dB noise level projectors currently available including cheaper data projectors such as the Acer U5313 (£909.97).

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