It was January 2015 when this data projector was released.


Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Epson EB-520 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to this multimedia projector.

There are a number of other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to consider including the Acer H7550BD (£457.99) which has better reviews.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the EB-535W (£675.56), or the EB-530 (£695.15) both from Epson.

Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The Epson EB-520 does not support full HD, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other data projectors that are a comparable age to this data projector also do not support full HD.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support full HD to this projector and we think the Acer H7550BD (£457.99) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Networking

Supports Wi-Fi

The Epson EB-520 supports Wi-Fi, which is unusual. Most of the other data projectors of a similar age and type to this data projector do not support Wi-Fi.

Alternative projectors which also support Wi-Fi that you might want to look at include the EB-535W (£675.56), or the EB-530 (£695.15) both from Epson.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The Epson EB-520 has one of the dimmer projector brightnesses (only 2,700 ANSI lumens) amongst 16000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The projector brightnesses of 16000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as this multimedia projector range from 300 ANSI lumens to 3,400 ANSI lumens.

If you would prefer a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the Acer H7550BD (£457.99) (3,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
