11 Reasons For

Good Brand

Multimedia projectors built by Epson are some of the better multimedia projectors according to average reviews from experts and users.

Running Costs Are Low

The average 1 year running cost of the EH-TW550 is £104 based on average usage levels and energy prices, which makes it one of the more economic to run multimedia projectors of this age and spec.

Reasonably Priced

One Epson EH-TW550 owner wrote in their reviews that it was good value for money. Expert website Businesstoday.intoday.in wrote “Projectors are getting affordable by the day” in their review of the Epson EH-TW550.

Supports 3D

The EH-TW550 supports 3D. Most of the other projectors that have been available for more than two years do not support 3D.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other projectors which support 3D currently available including the Epson Z8455WUNL[plb_1838281_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Epson EH-TW550 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this multimedia projector and we think the Ricoh PJ WX4141N[plb_2502936_price], and the Epson PowerLite W16[plb_2384315_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Two USB 2.0 Ports Quantitys

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on data projectors that have been around for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

Across all the projectors of a similar type and age to the EH-TW550 the noise levels range from 29dB to 48dB. With a noise level of only 29 decibels, the EH-TW550's noise level is one of the quietest amongst 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the EH-TW550.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp

The EH-TW550 has one of the longer service life of lamps (4,000 hours) amongst similar spec projectors of this age. The shortest service life of lamp of similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the EH-TW550 is 2,000h, the longest is 5,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 3,300h.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The EH-TW550 does not support full HD. Most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the EH-TW550 also do not support full HD.

It is worth considering alternative multimedia projectors which also support full HD including the Hitachi CP-AX2503[plb_2298359_price].

Touchscreen requires a 400 upgrade with an overkill screen resolution upgrade
When I received it, I opened up the case and a power chord was preventing the video card fan from spinning. The video card does run a little hot when its stressed and it only has one fan. I've seen it
