Released Over Three Years Ago

It was April 2017 when this 5000:1 contrast ratio projector was released.


Video

Supports Full HD

The Epson PowerLite 4855WU supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to this projector do not support full HD.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support full HD and we think the Benq W1060 (£399.96), the NEC NP-PA521U-13ZL, and the Epson PowerLite Pro Z9870 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PowerLite 4855WU has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to this projector.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Benq MX660P, the Epson PowerLite W16SK, or the Hitachi CP-AX3503 which has better reviews.

Projector

1080p (1920x1080) Resolution

The highest resolution of the PowerLite 4855WU is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) data projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

Average Projector Brightness

At 4,000 ANSI lumens, the PowerLite 4855WU has a fairly standard projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to this projector.

There are a number of other 4,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available that you might want to look at including because of it's better review score, the BD470, or the BG650 (£685) both from LG.

If you would prefer a multimedia projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the PT-VZ575 (4,500 ANSI lumens), or the PT-VZ570 (4,500 ANSI lumens) both from Panasonic or the Epson PowerLite 4750W (£1,397.21) (4,200 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

Average Noise Level

At 38 decibels, the PowerLite 4855WU has a relatively typical noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age.
