6 Reasons For

Epson Has Good Projector Reviews

Epson is one of the better rated multimedia projector manufacturers according to average expert and owner review score data that we have collected for all multimedia projectors.

Supports Full HD

The EB-G6550WU supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other similar spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EB-G6550WU do not support full HD.

It may also be worth considering one of the other projectors which support full HD currently available including the Hitachi CP-AX2503[plb_2298359_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think because of it's better review score, the Ricoh PJ WX4141N[plb_2502936_price], and the Epson PowerLite W16[plb_2384315_price] is also worth considering.
