6 Reasons For

Epson Has Good Projector Reviews

Epson has good average ratings for its 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors as well as across its entire data projector range compared to other manufacturers.

Running Costs Are Low

Based on average usage levels and energy prices we estimate that the Powerlite W28+ will cost only £89 over 1 year to run, which is in the cheapest 17% of all 90 projectors of a comparable age and type.

Supports Wi-Fi

The Powerlite W28+ supports wi-Fi, unlike most of the other projectors of this spec and age which do not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi to this projector and we think the Epson EB-945H (£528.00), or the Hitachi CPX2541WN (£462.00) is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Powerlite W28+ has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the Powerlite W28+.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to look at including because of it's better review score, the Epson Home Cinema 600.

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the Powerlite W28+ do not support 3D. The Epson Powerlite W28+ is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support 3D including the Epson Home Cinema 600.
