7 Reasons For

Epson Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

Based on 613 owner and expert reviews, Epson has good reviews for its projectors. Epson also has good reviews specifically for its 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors compared to other manufacturers.

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 came out more than a year ago.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the EB-X27[pl_2896435_price], or the PowerLite X27[pl_2896329_price] both from Epson or the Acer X152H[plb_2879485_price].
