Epson Has Good Projector Reviews

Epson is one of the better rated data projector manufacturers according to average user and expert review score data that we have collected for all data projectors.


Other

Released Over Four Years Ago

This data projector has been on the market since April 2013.


Multimedia

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Epson PowerLite Pro G6550WU does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to this projector which have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this multimedia projector and we think the Acer H7531D, or the Optoma GT760 (£451.08) are also worth considering.

Video

Supports Full HD

The PowerLite Pro G6550WU supports full HD. Most of the other projectors of this age and spec also support full HD.

We compared all the other data projectors which support full HD to this projector and we think because of its better review score, the Sony VPL-HW50ES/W is also worth considering.

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of projectors that were released more than two years ago is 300 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 9,200 ANSI lumens.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth considering include the Epson Pro G6900WU (6,000 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.
