9 Reasons For

Epson Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

On average Epson 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good ratings compared to other manufacturers as do all data projectors built by Epson.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other data projectors that were launched around the same time as the EB-426Wi, the Epson EB-426Wi has a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might want to consider including the Epson V11H475020 which has better reviews.

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

This projector has a projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to it.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

The EB-426Wi has more VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys than most of the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the EB-426Wi. Most of the projectors that were released more than two years ago only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys, however this data projector has three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Fairly High RMS Rated Power

With an RMS rated power of 16 Watts, the Epson EB-426Wi has one of the higher RMS rated powers amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. Across all the similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the EB-426Wi the RMS rated powers range from 0.5W to 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 11W.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp

The average service life of lamp of data projectors of a similar age and type to the EB-426Wi is 4,400h, and the service life of lamps range from 1,500h to 30,000h. The EB-426Wi has a fairly long service life of lamp (5,000 hours) compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the EB-426Wi.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rates

This multimedia projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data rates, which is typical of many similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

At only 28 decibels, the Epson EB-426Wi has a fairly quiet noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the EB-426Wi. 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the EB-426Wi have noise level (economic mode)s of between 26dB and 35dB, and the average noise level (economic mode) is 30dB.

Chart Edit

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The EB-426Wi does not support full HD. Most of the other projectors of this age and type also do not support full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the Hitachi CP-WX8255A which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other data projectors of this age and spec, the Epson EB-426Wi does not support 3D.

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

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago do not support wi-Fi. The Epson EB-426Wi is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might also want to consider including the Epson BrightLink 436Wi which also has a higher rating.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of only 2,500 ANSI lumens, the EB-426Wi has one of the dimmer projector brightnesss amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The projector brightnesss of projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the EB-426Wi range from 100 ANSI lumens to 8,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,500 ANSI lumens.

We compared this projector to all the other 2,500 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the Epson EB-425W is also worth considering.

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the Sony VPL-DX127 (£380.33) (2,600 ANSI lumens).

Very Small Offset

The average offset of multimedia projectors of this age and spec is 88%, and the offsets range from 9.5% to 130%. The Epson EB-426Wi has one of the smaller offsets (only 9.51 percent) amongst data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Colour Light Output

The dimmest colour light output of multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the EB-426Wi is 2,500 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 5,000 ANSI lumens. The EB-426Wi has a quite dim colour light output (only 2,500 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the EB-426Wi.

Chart Edit

Very Dim White Light Output

At only 2,500 ANSI lumens, the Epson EB-426Wi has a quite dim white light output compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the EB-426Wi. The dimmest white light output of projectors that were released more than two years ago is 2,500 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 5,000 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Bulb Power

At only 200 Watts, the EB-426Wi has a quite small bulb power compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the EB-426Wi. Multimedia projectors of this age and type have bulb powers of between 140W and 400W.

Chart Edit

Quite High Power Consumption (PowerSave)

The power consumption (PowerSave)s of projectors of this age and spec range from 0.1W to 330W. At 246 Watts, the EB-426Wi has a fairly high power consumption (PowerSave) compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the EB-426Wi.

3 Other reasons to consider the Epson EB-426Wi

OK Running Costs

The EB-426Wi has an average 1 year running cost of £97 based on typical usage levels and energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 89 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago.

Released Over Three Years Ago

Epson released the EB-426Wi over three years ago.

Average Noise Level

At 35 decibels, the Epson EB-426Wi has a pretty standard noise level compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 35dB noise level projectors currently available including the Epson BrightLink 485Wi, or the NEC VE281 (£449.24) which has better reviews.

If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Hitachi CP-WX4022 (£892.54) (35dB).
