5 Reasons For

Good Brand

Data projectors produced by Epson generally have good ratings compared to other manufacturers.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other data projectors of a comparable type and age to the Powerlite 1870, the Epson Powerlite 1870 has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think because of it's better review score, the Ricoh PJ WX4130 is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

Most similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Powerlite 1870 do not support full HD. The Powerlite 1870 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

It is worth also looking at other projectors which also support full HD including the Ricoh PJ WX4130.

Like most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years, the Epson Powerlite 1870 does not support 3D.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a 3D and we think the Vivitek Qumi Q2 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

4 Other reasons to consider the Epson Powerlite 1870

Running Costs Are OK

The Powerlite 1870 is typical compared to the other 43 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago that we have assessed for running costs. Based on average usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the Powerlite 1870 will cost £123 over 1 year to run.

Released Over Four Years Ago

This 2500:1 contrast ratio projector has been on the market for over four years.

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 4,000 ANSI lumens, the Powerlite 1870 has a pretty standard projector brightness compared to most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the Powerlite 1870.

If this 2500:1 contrast ratio projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the VPL-CH375 (£1,955.44) (5,000 ANSI lumens), or the VPL-CH370 (£1,417.81) (5,000 ANSI lumens) both from Sony.
