Released Over Two Years Ago

This projector has been on the market since April 2017.


Networking

Supports Wi-Fi

The Epson EB-1985WU supports Wi-Fi, which is unusual. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to this projector do not support Wi-Fi.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which support Wi-Fi to this multimedia projector and we think the Epson 1975W (£1,561.46) which has better reviews; or the Epson EB-1975W (£1,308.39) which is cheaper are also worth considering.

Video

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years, the EB-1985WU does not support full HD.

There are a number of other data projectors which also support full HD that you might want to consider including the Epson 1975W (£1,561.46).

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The EB-1985WU has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other data projectors of this type and age also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the Epson 1975W (£1,561.46) which has better reviews; or the EB-595Wi (£1,423.34), and the EB-1975W (£1,308.39) both from Epson which is cheaper are also worth considering.

Projector

WUXGA (1920x1200) Resolution

The EB-1985WU has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of the most frequently found projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

A WUXGA (1920x1200) projector native resolution is in fact the best resolution across all 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to this projector.

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

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

The EB-1985WU has one of the brighter projector brightnesses (4,800 ANSI lumens) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age. 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to this projector have projector brightnesses of between 300 ANSI lumens and 20,000 ANSI lumens.

Data projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth considering include the Epson 1975W (£1,561.46) (5,000 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.

Lamps

Fairly Big Bulb Power

Very Short Service Life of Lamp

Across all the similar spec data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years the service life of lamps range from 500h to 30,000h. The Epson EB-1985WU has one of the shorter service life of lamps (only 3,000 hours) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age.

Performance

Fairly Loud Noise Level

The EB-1985WU has one of the louder noise levels (39 decibels) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age. Across all the projectors of this age and type the noise levels range from 28dB to 49dB, and the average noise level is 36dB.

We compared all the other 39dB noise level projectors to this projector and we think cheaper projectors such as the Epson EB-1975W (£1,308.39) is also worth considering.

Projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth considering include the Epson BrightLink 575Wi (£1,608.38) (35dB), or the Acer P7305 (£1,669.97) (36dB).
