7 Reasons For

Good Brand

Epson is one of the better rated projector brands according to average expert and user reviews, and Epson also has good reviews for its 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Supports Wi-Fi

The EB Z9870U supports wi-Fi. Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years do not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other projectors which also support wi-Fi to this multimedia projector and we think the EB-Z11000[pl_2549617_price], or the EB-Z11005[pl_2549634_price] both from Epson or the Optoma EX400[plb_2110318_price] is also worth considering.

5 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 projectors of this age and type which have a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

Most projectors that came out more than two years ago do not support full HD. The Epson EB Z9870U is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

It is worth also looking at alternative multimedia projectors which also support full HD including the PJD7820HD[pl_1536139_price], the PRO8600[pl_1596542_price], or the PJD8633[pl_1597774_price] all from Viewsonic.
