12 Reasons For
The EH-TW5300 is one the best selling projector currently available.
Epson Projectors Have Good Reviews
Epson is one of the better rated projector brands according to average user and expert reviews, and Epson also has good ratings for its multimedia projectors.
Good High Def TV
One customer mentioned in their reviews that the Epson EH-TW5300 was good at displaying high definition TV. In December Projectorreviews.com.au said “Though Full HD projectors have been coming out around the $1k mark for a while now the EH-TW5300 does it with a sharp contrasty picture”.

Supports Full HD
The EH-TW5300 supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the EH-TW5300 do not support full HD.
Alternative projectors which support full HD currently available that you might also want to look at include cheaper projectors such as the Epson EH-TW5210[plb_3026694_price].
Alternative multimedia projectors which also support full HD that you might also want to look at include the Optoma HD240W[plb_3856555_price], or the Viewsonic PJD6352LS[plb_2857807_price].
+7 More reasons for
The EH-TW5300 supports 3D. Most of the other projectors of this age and spec also support 3D.
We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support 3D and we think a cheaper data projector such as the Optoma X402[plb_2809837_price] or you might consider a higher rated data projector such as the Vivitek Q7 Lite[plb_2729937_price] are also worth considering.
Other projectors which also support 3D that you might want to consider include the Optoma HD240W[plb_3856555_price].
Has a Built-In Speaker(s)
Like most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EH-TW5300, the Epson EH-TW5300 has a built-in speaker(s).
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Acer P1385WB[plb_2900213_price] which is cheaper.
We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Optoma HD240W[plb_3856555_price], or the Viewsonic PJD6352LS[plb_2857807_price].
1080p (1920x1080) Projector Native Resolution
The highest resolution of the EH-TW5300 is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of the most common projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800). The worst resolution of all multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the EH-TW5300 is SVGA (800x600) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).
Two HDMI Ports Quantitys
The Epson EH-TW5300 has more HDMI ports quantitys than most of the projectors of this type and age. This data projector is a two HDMI ports quantity projector compared to most of the comparable spec data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the EH-TW5300 which only have one HDMI ports quantity.
Two USB 2.0 Ports Quantitys
The EH-TW5300 is a two USB 2.0 ports quantity data projector.
Quite Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)
The Epson EH-TW5300 has a quite quiet noise level (economic mode) (only 27 decibels) compared to most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the EH-TW5300. Multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the EH-TW5300 have noise level (economic mode)s of between 21dB and 36dB.
10 Reasons Against
Does Not Support Wi-Fi
The EH-TW5300 does not support wi-Fi, although this is within the context that most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the EH-TW5300 also do not support wi-Fi.
We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Sony MP-CL1[plb_3151534_price].
Quite Dim Projector Brightness
The dimmest projector brightness of data projectors that were launched around the same time as the EH-TW5300 is 37 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 8,200 ANSI lumens. At only 2,200 ANSI lumens, the EH-TW5300 has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EH-TW5300.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 2,200 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Epson EH-TW5210[plb_3026694_price].
If you would prefer a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the Optoma HD28DSE[plb_3141654_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated); or the NEC V332X[plb_3241591_price] (3,300 ANSI lumens and cheaper).
Very Small Offset
At only 10 percent, the EH-TW5300 has a fairly small offset compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the EH-TW5300. Multimedia projectors of this type and age have offsets of between 10% and 130%, and the average offset is 94%.
Very Dim Projector Brightness (economic Mode)
With a projector brightness (economic mode) of only 1,500 ANSI lumen, the EH-TW5300 has one of the dimmer projector brightness (economic mode)s amongst multimedia projectors of this age. The projector brightness (economic mode)s of multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than a year range from 1,500 ANSI lumens to 5,000 ANSI lumens.
+7 More reasons against
Very Dim Colour Light Output
Across all the multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the EH-TW5300 the colour light outputs range from 1,500 ANSI lumens to 7,000 ANSI lumens, and the average colour light output is 4,300 ANSI lumens. With a colour light output of only 2,200 ANSI lumens, the EH-TW5300 has one of the dimmer colour light outputs amongst data projectors of this age.
Very Dim White Light Output
The average white light output of multimedia projectors that have been around for more than a year is 4,300 ANSI lumens. With a white light output of only 2,200 ANSI lumens, the Epson EH-TW5300 has one of the dimmer white light outputs amongst projectors of this age.
Fairly Loud Noise Level
The quietest noise level of similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the EH-TW5300 is 22dB, the loudest is 39dB, and the average noise level is 32dB. With a noise level of 37 decibels, the EH-TW5300 has one of the louder noise levels amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.
Alternative 37dB noise level projectors currently available that you might want to consider include the Epson EH-TW5210[plb_3026694_price] which is cheaper.
Multimedia projectors with a louder noise level that might also be worth looking at include the Vivitek Q7 Lite[plb_2729937_price] (38dB) which also has a higher rating.
Only One VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantity
The Epson EH-TW5300 is a one VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity data projector.
High Running Costs
The EH-TW5300 has an average 1 year running cost of £1,745 based on average energy prices and usage levels, which is in the most expensive 2% of all 63 projectors of a similar age and spec.
Only One Number of Built-In Speakers
