9 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The Epson EX5230 does not support 3D, although this is within the context that most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched more than a year ago also do not support 3D.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a 3D and we think the Acer X152H[plb_2879485_price] or the NEC M403W[plb_3078396_price], or the Ricoh PJ WX2240[plb_3011875_price] are also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the EX5230 do not support full HD. The Epson EX5230 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also support full HD including the Acer X152H[plb_2879485_price] or the NEC M403W[plb_3078396_price], or the Benq TH670[plb_3166214_price].

The noise levels of projectors of a similar age and type to the EX5230 range from 27dB to 47dB, and the average noise level is 34dB.

We compared this projector to all the other 37dB noise level projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the PowerLite X27[pl_2896329_price], the PowerLite S27[pl_2896330_price], and the EB-X27[pl_2896435_price] all from Epson is also worth considering.
