Epson Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

On average Epson 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good reviews as do all projectors produced by Epson.

Running Costs Are OK

The EB-W12 is typical compared to the other 89 data projectors of a similar type and age that we have assessed for running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the EB-W12 will cost £90 over 1 year to run.

Released Over Four Years Ago

This data projector was released over four years ago.

Does Not Support 3D

The Epson EB-W12 does not support 3D, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the EB-W12 also do not support 3D.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support 3D including the NEC NP-M311W.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Epson EB-W12 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the EB-W12.

Does Not Support Full HD

Most similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the EB-W12 do not support full HD. The Epson EB-W12 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors with a full HD and we think the Epson 475Wi, or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Epson EB-W12 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the EB-W12 also do not support wi-Fi.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which also support wi-Fi which you might also want to consider including the NEC NP-UM330X-WK1 which is also higher rated.

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

This multimedia projector has a projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as it.

Average Projector Brightness

At 2,800 ANSI lumens, the Epson EB-W12 has a fairly standard projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the EB-W12.

Other 2,800 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available that you might also want to consider include the VE281, or the NP-VE281X both from NEC which has better reviews.

If this 3000:1 contrast ratio data projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to consider the Epson BrightLink 436Wi (£1,564.53) (3,000 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

Fairly Loud Noise Level

With a noise level of 37 decibels, the Epson EB-W12 has a quite loud noise level compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the EB-W12. The noise levels of similar spec multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the EB-W12 range from 26dB to 45dB, and the average noise level is 35dB.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other 37dB noise level projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the Hitachi CP-WX8255A, and the Epson BrightLink 436Wi (£1,564.53) is also worth considering.
