Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The PowerLite S27 does not support full HD, although keep in mind that most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as this projector also do not support full HD.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the Benq W1500, or the NEC NP-M282 are also worth considering.

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PowerLite S27 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to this projector.

It may also be worth considering one of the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Benq W710ST, or the Epson EB-W18 which both of have better reviews.

Performance

Average Noise Level

At 37 decibels, the Epson PowerLite S27 has a pretty average noise level compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to this projector.

We compared all the other 37dB noise level multimedia projectors to this projector and we think the 965H (£350.04), and the EB-X24 (£799.99) both from Epson which and both of have better reviews are also worth considering.

If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might want to consider the Epson PowerLite X27 (£349.27) (37dB).

Projector

Only SVGA (800x600) Resolution

The PowerLite S27 has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 53% less resolution than the most frequently found projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

A SVGA (800x600) projector native resolution is actually the worst resolution across all comparable spec projectors that came out more than two years ago.

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

Average Projector Brightness

The Epson PowerLite S27 has a relatively standard projector brightness (2,700 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to this multimedia projector.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the EX6220 (3,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated), the 1430Wi (£1,945.34) (3,300 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the 965H (£350.04) (3,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated) all from Epson.
