The Epson S31+ has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out more than a year ago also have a built-in speaker(s).

Other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might want to consider include the Epson EB-S31 (£279) which is cheaper.

There are a number of other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) which you might want to look at including the VS240 (£291.16), or the EB-W31 (£362.50) both from Epson.

Performance

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 37 decibels, the Epson S31+ has a fairly average noise level compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar age and type to this projector.

If you would consider a multimedia projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the VS340 (£347.69) (37dB), the VS240 (£291.16) (37dB), or the EB-W04 (£359.99) (37dB) all from Epson.

Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The Epson S31+ does not support full HD. Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to this multimedia projector do support full HD.

It is worth also looking at other projectors which also support full HD including the Infocus IN118HDXC (£354.99) which also has a higher rating.

HD-Ready

The Epson S31+ is HD-Ready. Most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to this data projector also are HD-Ready.

Projector

Only SVGA (800x600) Resolution

The highest resolution of the Epson S31+ is SVGA (800x600). That's 77% less resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution.

This projector's resolution (SVGA (800x600)) is actually the worst resolution amongst all comparable spec projectors that were released more than a year ago.

Amongst comparable types of projector the best resolution is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,200 ANSI lumens, the Epson S31+ has a fairly typical projector brightness compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as this data projector.

We compared this data projector to all the other 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors and we think the Infocus IN118HDXC (£354.99) which has better reviews is also worth considering.
