4 Reasons For

Epson Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

Epson 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good ratings on average and across all data projectors Epson is one of the better rated brands.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the PowerLite S17, the PowerLite S17 has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the NEC NP-M282 is also worth considering.

Three Audio (L,R) Ins

The PowerLite S17 has more audio (L,R) ins than most of the similar spec multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the PowerLite S17. This Epson multimedia projector is a three audio (L,R) in projector compared to most of the data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the PowerLite S17 which only have between one and two audio (L,R) ins.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp

The average service life of lamp of data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PowerLite S17 is 6,000h, and the service life of lamps range from 500h to 30,000h. At 5,000 hours, the PowerLite S17 has a fairly long service life of lamp compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the PowerLite S17.

12 Reasons Against

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many similar spec projectors that have been available for a comparable time to it.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

Most similar spec projectors that were launched more than two years ago do not support full HD. The Epson PowerLite S17 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

Alternative projectors which also support full HD that you might also want to consider include the Epson 1975W which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support 3D

The PowerLite S17 does not support 3D, although this is within the context that most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the PowerLite S17 also do not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The PowerLite S17 does not support wi-Fi, although keep in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PowerLite S17 also do not support wi-Fi.

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

Only SVGA (800x600) Projector Native Resolution

The PowerLite S17 has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 53% less resolution than the most common projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

A SVGA (800x600) projector native resolution is actually the worst resolution across all multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the PowerLite S17.

Across similar types of data projector the best resolution is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the PowerLite S17 has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the PowerLite S17. Data projectors of this type and age have projector brightnesss of between 300 ANSI lumens and 12,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,300 ANSI lumens.

If this Epson projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to look at the NEC NP-M282 (2,800 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Fairly Loud Noise Level

Across all the multimedia projectors of this type and age the noise levels range from 27dB to 49dB. At 37 decibels, the PowerLite S17 has a quite loud noise level compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the PowerLite S17.

We compared this projector to all the other 37dB noise level data projectors and we think the EB-W18, and the EB-X24 (£799.99) both from Epson which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Very Small Digital Zoom

At only 1.35 times zoom factor, the Epson PowerLite S17 has a quite small digital zoom compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the PowerLite S17. Across all the projectors that are a similar age to the PowerLite S17 the digital zooms range from 1.1x to 2x.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Bulb Power

The PowerLite S17 has one of the smaller bulb powers (only 200 Watts) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The smallest bulb power of projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the PowerLite S17 is 15W and the biggest is 840W.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim White Light Output

The Epson PowerLite S17 has one of the dimmer white light outputs (only 2,700 ANSI lumens) amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age. Across all the multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the PowerLite S17 the white light outputs range from 600 ANSI lumens to 4,800 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Colour Light Output

With a colour light output of only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the PowerLite S17 has one of the dimmer colour light outputs amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. Across all the multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago the colour light outputs range from 600 ANSI lumens to 4,800 ANSI lumens, and the average colour light output is 3,000 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Power Consumption (PowerSave)

The PowerLite S17 has a fairly high power consumption (PowerSave) (234 Watts) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec. The power consumption (PowerSave)s of projectors of this age and spec range from 0.2W to 280W.
