Does Not Support Full HD

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also support full HD including the Epson Home Cinema 600 which also has a higher rating.

Average Noise Level

The Epson PowerLite 580 has a fairly standard noise level (35 decibels) compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been around for a similar time to this data projector.

We compared all the other 35dB noise level projectors to this projector and we think because of its better review score, the Acer P1303 is also worth considering.
