5 Reasons For

Epson Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

Epson is one of the superior projector brands according to average reviews from owners and experts, and Epson also has good ratings for its 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Supports Full HD

The EB-Z9870U supports full HD, unlike most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago which do not support full HD.

Other projectors which support full HD currently available which you might want to consider include the PJD7820HD, the PRO8600, or the PJD8633 all from Viewsonic which has better reviews.

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of projectors of a similar spec and age to the EB-Z9870U is 700 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 11,000 ANSI lumens. The EB-Z9870U has one of the brighter projector brightnesss (7,500 ANSI lumens) amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

If this 15000:1 contrast ratio projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to look at the Epson EB Z9870U (£12,523.20) (8,700 ANSI lumens).

WUXGA (1920x1200) Projector Native Resolution

The EB-Z9870U has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a XGA (1024x768) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

A WUXGA (1920x1200) projector native resolution is actually the best resolution across all 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the EB-Z9870U.

The worst resolution across similar types of projector is SVGA (800x600).

Fairly Big Bulb Power

The EB-Z9870U has a quite big bulb power (380 Watts) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec. Across all the data projectors that were released more than two years ago the bulb powers range from 190W to 2,400W.

Chart Edit

12 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The EB-Z9870U does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other data projectors of this type and age which have a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D

The EB-Z9870U does not support 3D, unlike most of the other comparable spec data projectors that came out more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most projectors of this spec and age do not support wi-Fi. The EB-Z9870U is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support wi-Fi to this data projector and we think the EB-Z11000 (£10,189.20), or the EB-Z11005 (£10,189.20) both from Epson or the Optoma EX400 (£470.33) is also worth considering.

Running Costs Are Very High

The average running cost of the EB-Z9870U is £262 over 1 year based on average energy prices, which makes it one of the least economic to run projectors of a comparable age and spec.

Chart

Very Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

At only 4,000 hours, the EB-Z9870U has a quite short service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the EB-Z9870U. The service life of lamp (economic mode)s of 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the EB-Z9870U range from 3,000h to 20,000h, and the average service life of lamp (economic mode) is 5,900h.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level

The noise levels of projectors of a comparable spec and age to the EB-Z9870U range from 26dB to 40dB. The EB-Z9870U has a quite loud noise level (38 decibels) compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the EB-Z9870U.

Alternative projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Epson EB-W28 (£434.99) (37dB).

Only One USB 2.0 Ports Quantity

The Epson EB-Z9870U is a one USB 2.0 ports quantity projector. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the EB-Z9870U have between one and three USB 2.0 ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Only One Component Video (YPbPr/YCbCr) in

The EB-Z9870U is a one component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) in multimedia projector.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level (economic Mode)

The EB-Z9870U has one of the louder noise level (economic mode)s (35 decibels) amongst multimedia projectors of this age. Similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the EB-Z9870U have noise level (economic mode)s of between 26dB and 35dB.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Colour Light Output

Across all the similar spec projectors that came out around the same time as the EB-Z9870U the colour light outputs range from 7,500 ANSI lumens to 10,000 ANSI lumens, and the average colour light output is 9,100 ANSI lumens. The EB-Z9870U has one of the dimmer colour light outputs (only 7,500 ANSI lumens) amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Dim White Light Output

Projectors that have been available for a similar time to the EB-Z9870U have white light outputs of between 7,500 ANSI lumens and 10,000 ANSI lumens, and the average white light output is 9,100 ANSI lumens. With a white light output of only 7,500 ANSI lumens, the Epson EB-Z9870U has one of the dimmer white light outputs amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The weights of 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago range from 1.3kg to 27kg, and the average weight is 6.5kg. The Epson EB-Z9870U is fairly heavy (25 kilograms) compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the EB-Z9870U.
