Overall Score

Why Has it Scored 31?

Sony projectors have excellent reviews in general.
It is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer, better projectors are available. View the latest projectors 2017.
This projector has running costs of £76 over 5 years, which puts it typical compared to the other 1,855 multimedia projectors that we have compared it to.
It has some good features, but it does also miss a couple of key features:
Powered by 3lcd technology, the eb-430 achieves accurate colour reproduction, important in education for natural-looking flags, maps and diagrams. A high white and colour light output of up to 3,000 lumens assures a clear picture, even in daylight, while a contrast ratio of 3,000:1 delivers sharp detail.<br> interactive lessons
Attach the optional epson elp-iu03 interactive module to captivate the class with interactive presentations. the module works with the projector to make any surface interactive - no screen required. notes or additions can be created and saved with the included digital pen.<br> convenient to control
The eb-425w is compatible with the epson elpcb01 control and connection box, which puts epson projector controls within easy reach at the front of the classroom. it also keeps cables tidy.<br> engaging presentations
Presentations can be made more engaging by plugging in the epson elp-dc06 USB document camera to show 3d objects close-up, or by using the HDMI input to display high-definition content. the built-in 16w speaker and microphone input ensure students won t ever struggle to hear.<br> easy to use
Super-easy to set up and use, the eb-430 features 3-in-1 USB display, so one cable is all that's needed for visuals, audio and mouse control. the picture can be aligned in seconds using the vertical and horizontal keystone correction, which is unique to epson in the short-throw category. plus, the projector can be conveniently turned on and off from a wall switch using the direct power on/off function.<br> economical
Lower than average projector native resolution
Louder than average noise level
