11 Reasons Against

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released around the same time as the PowerLite X17, the Epson PowerLite X17 does not support full HD.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the Acer X1311[plb_1374828_price], the Vivitek H1180HD[plb_2341133_price], or the NEC NP-M322X[plb_2324544_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago, the PowerLite X17 does not support 3D.

It is worth also looking at alternative multimedia projectors which also support 3D including the X1111[pl_1377014_price], or the X1140[pl_2366656_price] both from Acer which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The PowerLite X17 does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth noting that most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the PowerLite X17 also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the EB-X18[pl_2017449_price], or the PowerLite 1222[pl_2225031_price] both from Epson or the Benq W1500[plb_1561671_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Alternative 2,700 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available that you might want to look at include the X111[pl_1569768_price], or the X1340[pl_1563541_price] both from Acer or the Epson PowerLite 97[plb_2225046_price] which has better reviews.

If you want a multimedia projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the PT-LB280E[pl_3122603_price] (2,800 ANSI lumens), or the PT-TW250[pl_2404089_price] (2,800 ANSI lumens) both from Panasonic or the NEC NP-M282[plb_2338575_price] (2,800 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.
