4 Reasons For

Epson Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

10000:1 contrast ratio projectors manufactured by Epson have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors) and found that Epson also has good reviews across its entire range.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Epson PowerLite X21 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the PowerLite X21 also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this data projector and we think because of it's better review score, the NEC NP-M282[plb_2338575_price] is also worth considering.

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

The PowerLite X21 is a three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity multimedia projector. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the PowerLite X21 have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp

With a service life of lamp of 5,000 hours, the Epson PowerLite X21 has a fairly long service life of lamp compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the PowerLite X21.

7 Reasons Against

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on data projectors of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PowerLite X21, the PowerLite X21 does not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

The PowerLite X21 does not support full HD, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago also do not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support full HD including the Epson 1975W[plb_3009713_price] which also has a higher rating.

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PowerLite X21 do not support wi-Fi. The PowerLite X21 is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

Other projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might want to consider include the Benq W1500[plb_1561671_price], or the Epson PowerLite 1222[plb_2225031_price] which also has a higher rating.
