Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Epson EB-W28 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors of this age and spec.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Benq MH680 (£459.14) which has better reviews; or the Panasonic PT-LB280E (£414.88) which is cheaper.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the NEC NP-M332 (£442.15) is also worth considering.

Performance

Average Noise Level

The Epson EB-W28 has a pretty standard noise level (37 decibels) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Other 37dB noise level data projectors currently available which you might want to look at include cheaper projectors such as the EB-X18 (£379.98), or the EB-X03 both from Epson.

If you are not concerned about having a louder noise level then you might want to consider the Epson EB-955W (£400) (37dB).

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Epson EB-W28 has a pretty typical projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age.

We compared this data projector to all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think the Benq MH680 (£459.14) which has better reviews; or the Epson EB-X18 (£379.98) which is cheaper are also worth considering.

Multimedia projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth looking at include the Epson 965H (£347.83) (3,500 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.
