Reasonably Priced

A few people thought the Epson PowerLite W16SK was good value for money. Expert website Projectorreviews.com said “Editor's priviledge! This projector offers schools and businesses a low cost way to serve up 3D to lar” in their review of the Epson PowerLite W16SK.

Good 3D Picture Quality

One Epson PowerLite W16SK owner mentioned in their reviews that it had a good 3D picture quality. Expert website Itreviews.com scored it 4 stars and wrote three years ago “The W16SK works with passive, rather than active, 3D glasses” in their review of this projector.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors which support 3D and we think the Epson Z8455WUNL[plb_1838281_price], and the Ricoh PJ WX4141N[plb_2502936_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other data projectors which support full HD currently available including the Epson Z8455WUNL[plb_1838281_price], or the Infocus IN3138[plb_2142781_price] which has better reviews.
