The EB-S18 is in the cheapest 18% of all 131 multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago that we have assessed for running costs. Based on average usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the EB-S18 will cost only £89 over 1 year to run.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Epson EB-S18 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the EB-S18.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the NEC NP-M282[plb_2338575_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
