Good Size

Two customers agreed that it was heavy and bulky.

Multimedia

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PowerLite Pro Z10005U does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as this multimedia projector.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Epson Home Cinema 3020+, the Viewsonic PJD5234, or the Optoma X300 are also worth considering.

Video

Supports Full HD

The PowerLite Pro Z10005U supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as this multimedia projector do not support full HD.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other projectors which support full HD currently available including the Epson EB-Z10005U, the Infocus IN118HD, or the Viewsonic PRO8600 which all of have better reviews.

Projector

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of data projectors of this age and type is 700 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 11,000 ANSI lumens. The PowerLite Pro Z10005U has one of the brighter projector brightnesses (10,000 ANSI lumens) amongst projectors of this age.

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the Pro Z11005NL (11,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the Pro Z11000WNL (11,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Epson.

This multimedia projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is actually the best resolution across all projectors of this spec and age.
