9 Reasons For

One Industry Award

This Epson multimedia projector received an "Editor's Choice" from PC Mag who concluded that this projector was fantastic.

Expert Reviews Are Good

Expert review website PC Mag scored this data projector 80 out of 100.

Good Brand

Based on 622 expert and user reviews, Epson has good ratings for its projectors. Epson also has good ratings specifically for its 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors.

Good Product Quality

Two Epson PowerLite 955W owners who reviewed it said that it was good quality. Pc Mag mentioned on PC Mag “Excellent quality for data images”. Two years ago Pcmag.com mentioned on expert website PC Mag “The Epson PowerLite 955WH WXGA 3LCD Projector delivers high quality for data images, with enough brightness for a small to midsize conference room or classroom”.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PowerLite 955W has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PowerLite 955W.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think a cheaper projector such as the Benq MH741 (£671.00) or you might consider a higher scoring projector such as the Benq MH680 (£607.98) are also worth considering.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The Epson PowerLite 955W does not support 3D. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the PowerLite 955W also do not support 3D.

We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also support 3D including the Benq MH680 (£607.98) or the Benq MH741 (£671.00).

Does Not Support Full HD

Most data projectors of a comparable type and age to the PowerLite 955W do not support full HD. The Epson PowerLite 955W is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support full HD which you might want to look at including the Benq MH680 (£607.98) or the Benq MH741 (£671.00).

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The PowerLite 955W does not support wi-Fi, although this is within the context that most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for more than a year also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the PowerLite 955W is 3,600 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Epson PowerLite 955W has one of the dimmer projector brightnesss amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the Benq MH680 (£607.98) which has better reviews.

If you are looking for a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the Benq MH741 (£671.00) (4,000 ANSI lumens and cheaper).
