5 Reasons For

Epson Projectors Have Good Reviews

Epson has good average ratings for its 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors as well as across its entire data projector range compared to other brands.

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 8,700 ANSI lumens, the EB-Z9870 has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EB-Z9870. Across all the comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the EB-Z9870 the projector brightnesss range from 700 ANSI lumens to 11,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,200 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Very Big Matrix Size

The matrix sizes of projectors of this age and spec range from 0.45" to 1.1". The matrix size of the Epson EB-Z9870 of 1.06 inches is one of the biggest amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the EB-Z9870.

Chart Edit

Very Bright Projector Brightness (economic Mode)

The dimmest projector brightness (economic mode) of 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the EB-Z9870 is 2,100 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 7,300 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness (economic mode) is 4,300 ANSI lumens. When compared to other comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago that we have checked, the projector brightness (economic mode) of the EB-Z9870 of 7,300 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Bulb Power

When compared to other projectors of this age and spec that we have assessed, the Epson EB-Z9870's bulb power of 380 Watts is one of the biggest. 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EB-Z9870 have bulb powers of between 190W and 2,400W.

Chart Edit

12 Reasons Against

Recent Price Increase of £568.78

The price of the EB-Z9870 increased by £568.78 in the last few weeks.

Expensive

We checked 25 projectors that have been around for more than two years and they range in price from £241 to £12,524. We think that this projector looks expensive compared to other projectors that have been around for more than two years.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Epson EB-Z9870 does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other similar spec data projectors that were released around the same time as the EB-Z9870.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D

Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago support 3D, however the EB-Z9870 does not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

The EB-Z9870 does not support full HD. Most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec also do not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the EB-Z9870, the EB-Z9870 does not support wi-Fi.

Alternative multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might want to look at include the EB-Z11000[pl_2549617_price], or the EB-Z11005[pl_2549634_price] both from Epson which is also cheaper.

Very High Running Costs

The EB-Z9870 is in the most expensive 14% of all 59 projectors of this type and age that we have assessed for running costs. Based on typical energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the EB-Z9870 will cost £262 over 1 year to run.

Chart

Very Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

Across all the projectors of a comparable spec and age to the EB-Z9870 the service life of lamp (economic mode)s range from 3,000h to 20,000h. The EB-Z9870 has one of the shorter service life of lamp (economic mode)s (only 4,000 hours) amongst projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level

With a noise level of 38 decibels, the EB-Z9870 has one of the louder noise levels amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The noise levels of similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the EB-Z9870 range from 26dB to 40dB, and the average noise level is 33dB.

Projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth considering include the EB-Z11000[pl_2549617_price] (40dB), or the EB-Z11005[pl_2549634_price] (40dB) both from Epson which is also cheaper.

Only One Component Video (YPbPr/YCbCr) in

Most 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago have one component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) in, including the Epson EB-Z9870 which has one component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) in.

Chart Edit

Very Loud Noise Level (economic Mode)

The quietest noise level (economic mode) of data projectors of this spec and age is 26dB and the loudest is 35dB. When compared to other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the EB-Z9870 that we have assessed, the Epson EB-Z9870's noise level (economic mode) of 35 decibels is one of the loudest.

Chart Edit
