The Home Cinema 600 supports full HD, unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the Home Cinema 600 which do not support full HD.

Chart Edit

The Epson Home Cinema 600 supports 3D, unlike most of the other data projectors of a comparable type and age to the Home Cinema 600 which do not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Home Cinema 600 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the Home Cinema 600.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the NEC NP-M282 which has better reviews.

Very Light

Projectors of this spec and age have weights of between 360g and 54kg. The Epson Home Cinema 600 is quite light (only 2.4 kilograms) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago.

9 Reasons Against

Poor 3D Picture Quality

One customer wrote in their reviews that this projector did not have a good 3D picture quality. Pcmag.com mentioned on expert review site PC Mag “The Epson Home Cinema 600 home entertainment projector doesn't offer 3D or high resolution.” in their review of the Epson Home Cinema 600 and rated it 3 stars.

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to it.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most projectors of this age and type do not support wi-Fi. The Epson Home Cinema 600 is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi to this data projector and we think the Benq W1500, or the Epson PowerLite 1222 is also worth considering.
