9 Reasons For

Epson Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

Based on 622 expert and user reviews, Epson has good ratings for its data projectors. Epson also has good ratings specifically within its data projectors range compared to other brands.

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

Projectors of a similar age and type to the G6870 XGA have projector brightnesss of between 37 ANSI lumens and 8,200 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,400 ANSI lumens. At 7,000 ANSI lumens, the G6870 XGA has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the G6870 XGA.

If you are looking for a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the Panasonic PT-DX820BE (£4,792.80) (8,200 ANSI lumens).

1280 X 1024 (SXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The Epson G6870 XGA supports a maximum resolution of 1280 x 1024 (SXGA). That's over four times the resolution of the most common supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this data projector). This multimedia projector also support a supported graphics resolutions of 800 x 600 (SVGA) and 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+). The worst resolution of all similar spec data projectors that were launched around the same time as the G6870 XGA is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Three Audio (L,R) Outs

The G6870 XGA has more audio (L,R) outs than most of the projectors that are a similar age to the G6870 XGA. This multimedia projector is a three audio (L,R) out data projector compared to most of the data projectors that are a similar age to the G6870 XGA which only have between one and two audio (L,R) outs.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Uniformity

The average uniformity of projectors that were released more than a year ago is 86%. The Epson G6870 XGA has a fairly big uniformity (90 percent) compared to most of the other data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the G6870 XGA.

Chart Edit

Very Bright Colour Light Output

When compared to other data projectors that came out around the same time as the G6870 XGA, the Epson G6870 XGA's colour light output of 7,000 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest. The average colour light output of comparable spec projectors that were released one year ago is 4,300 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Very Bright White Light Output

When compared to other projectors of this type and age, the white light output of the G6870 XGA of 7,000 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest. Multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the G6870 XGA have white light outputs of between 1,500 ANSI lumens and 7,000 ANSI lumens, and the average white light output is 4,300 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Very Big Bulb Power

When compared to other data projectors of this spec and age, the G6870 XGA's bulb power of 380 Watts is one of the biggest. The smallest bulb power of comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the G6870 XGA is 50W and the biggest is 380W.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rates

This projector has a 100|1000 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data rates, which is the most commonly found ethernet LAN data rates on comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to it.

15 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The G6870 XGA does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the G6870 XGA.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D

The G6870 XGA does not support 3D, unlike most of the other data projectors of a similar age and spec to the G6870 XGA.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support 3D to this multimedia projector and we think the VPL-VW350ES, the VPL-HW65ES, or the VPL-VW600ES all from Sony is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD

The G6870 XGA does not support full HD, although keep in mind that most of the other data projectors that have been available for more than a year also do not support full HD.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the Sony VPL-VW600ES which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most data projectors that came out more than a year ago do not support wi-Fi. The Epson G6870 XGA is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

It is worth also looking at other data projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Vivitek Qumi Q6 (£319.43).
