4 Reasons For

Epson Has Good Data Projector Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all Epson projectors and also specifically for Epson 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors and found that in both cases Epson had good ratings compared to other manufacturers.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Epson EB-S031 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 this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the NEC NP-M282 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Two USB 2.0 Ports Quantitys

The EB-S031 is a two USB 2.0 ports quantity multimedia projector. Most of the other projectors of this age and spec have between one and three USB 2.0 ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp

The Epson EB-S031 has a fairly long service life of lamp (5,000 hours) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the EB-S031. Projectors of a comparable type and age to the EB-S031 have service life of lamps of between 500h and 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 6,000h.

16 Reasons Against

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on data projectors of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EB-S031, the EB-S031 does not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

Most projectors of this age and type do not support full HD. The EB-S031 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support full HD which you might also want to look at including the Epson 1975W (£1,511.44) which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other data projectors of a similar type and age to the EB-S031, the Epson EB-S031 does not support wi-Fi.

It is worth considering other projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Benq W1500, or the Epson PowerLite 1222 which is also higher rated.

Only SVGA (800x600) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the EB-S031 is SVGA (800x600). That's 53% less resolution than a WXGA (1280x800) data projector, which is the most common resolution.

This data projector's resolution (SVGA (800x600)) is actually the worst resolution amongst all data projectors of this spec and age.

A WUXGA (1920x1200) projector native resolution is the best resolution across similar types of data projector.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Across all the comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the EB-S031 the projector brightnesss range from 300 ANSI lumens to 12,000 ANSI lumens. At only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the EB-S031 has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for a similar time to the EB-S031.

Multimedia projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth looking at include the NEC NP-M282 (2,800 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

Very Low RMS Rated Power

With an RMS rated power of only 1 Watt, the EB-S031 has a fairly low RMS rated power compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years. The average RMS rated power of projectors of this age and spec is 8.9W.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness (economic Mode)

Comparable spec multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago have projector brightness (economic mode)s of between 240 ANSI lumens and 3,500 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness (economic mode) of only 1,890 ANSI lumen, the EB-S031 has one of the dimmer projector brightness (economic mode)s amongst data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Small Digital Zoom

The average digital zoom of multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the EB-S031 is 1.8x, and the digital zooms range from 1.1x to 2x. The EB-S031 has a quite small digital zoom (only 1.35 times zoom factor) compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Only Supports One Video Colour Modes

The number of video colour modes supported by the EB-S031 is more than most 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to it. This multimedia projector supports a Dynamic video colour modes, which is the most frequently supported video colour modes supported by 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the EB-S031.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Bulb Power

The average bulb power of multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the EB-S031 is 240W. The EB-S031 has a fairly small bulb power (only 200 Watts) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the EB-S031.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim White Light Output

At only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the Epson EB-S031 has a fairly dim white light output compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the EB-S031. The dimmest white light output of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago is 600 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 4,800 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Colour Light Output

Across all the multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the EB-S031 the colour light outputs range from 600 ANSI lumens to 4,800 ANSI lumens. With a colour light output of only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the EB-S031 has one of the dimmer colour light outputs amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantity

The Epson EB-S031 is a one VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity projector. Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the EB-S031 have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Only One HDMI Ports Quantity

Most multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the EB-S031 have between one and two HDMI ports quantitys, including the Epson EB-S031 which has one HDMI ports quantity.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Matrix Size

The EB-S031 has a fairly small matrix size (only 0.55 inches) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the EB-S031. The smallest matrix size of data projectors that are a comparable age to the EB-S031 is 0.45" and the biggest is 0.96".

3 Other reasons to consider the Epson EB-S031

Running Costs Are OK

The average running cost of the EB-S031 is £89 over 1 year based on average energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 131 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years.

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when this projector was released.

Average Noise Level

The EB-S031 has a relatively average noise level (37 decibels) compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 37dB noise level projectors currently available including the EB-W18, or the EB-X24 (£799.99) both from Epson which has better reviews.
