G6900WU and G6900WU NL - Cons

  • Only one HDMI port (it does have a DisplayPort)
  • Split Screen slow to engage, “clunky”  to switch windows (but ultimately, it works)
  • No lens memory (requires motorized lenses)
  • Lamp life could be longer (but reasonably good for this class of projectors)
  • Dynamic iris is slow and seems to move in visible steps – inferior compared to what Epson puts in their home theater projectors (which cost less)
  • Could be quieter – 39 db in full power is not bad for a 6000 lumen projector geared for larger environments Eco mode is quiet enough – at 31, which is below the high end for home projectors
  • Image defocuses very slightly during warm-up (first 15-20 minutes)
