7 Reasons For

Epson Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all Epson data projectors and also specifically for Epson 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors and found that in both cases Epson had good ratings compared to other manufacturers.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Epson PowerLite 97 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the PowerLite 97 also have a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth considering one of the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including because of it's better review score, the NEC NP-M282.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the Epson PowerLite 97 is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) data projector, which is the most common resolution supported by projectors of this spec and age. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this projector. This data projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 1280 x 960, 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1366 х 768, 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all multimedia projectors of this type and age the worst resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Three Audio (L,R) Ins

The PowerLite 97 is a three audio (L,R) in data projector. Most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PowerLite 97 only have between one and two audio (L,R) ins.

Chart Edit

Two USB 2.0 Ports Quantitys

The PowerLite 97 is a two USB 2.0 ports quantity projector.

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

With an RMS rated power of 16 Watts, the PowerLite 97 has a quite high RMS rated power compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the PowerLite 97. Projectors of this age and type have RMS rated powers of between 1W and 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 8.9W.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

With a noise level (economic mode) of only 28 decibels, the PowerLite 97 has a quite quiet noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age. Projectors that have been around for a similar time to the PowerLite 97 have noise level (economic mode)s of between 26dB and 40dB, and the average noise level (economic mode) is 30dB.

10 Reasons Against

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D

Most data projectors of this type and age do not support 3D. The Epson PowerLite 97 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

The PowerLite 97 does not support full HD. Most of the other data projectors that were launched around the same time as the PowerLite 97 also do not support full HD.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support full HD to this multimedia projector and we think the Epson 1975W (£1,511.44) is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Epson PowerLite 97 does not support wi-Fi, although keep in mind that most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the PowerLite 97 also do not support wi-Fi.

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