Award_HotProduct_largeWhen the W16SK was the object of a full-length review, it received our Hot Product Award. Then, we awarded it our our prestigious Best In Classroom: 3D Projector Award in our 2013 Classroom Projector Report.The full review goes into all the details but here are a few basics:

Epson W16SK Projector Highlights

  • Best in Classroom 3D Award WinnerRated at 3000 lumens per projector!
  • Low cost of 3D operation thanks to using $3/pr. passive glasses instead of $40 to $100/pr. active glasses
  • Good to very good color in brightest modes (Presentation, Dynamic), better still in “best” modes such as Theatre
  • Exceptionally bright 3D – typically 2-3 times brighter than active 3D glasses classroom projectors
  • Portable or fixed installation flexibility. Note:  Portable will require a several minute readjustment if the distance to screen or screen size changes
  • Setup of the stacked projectors is faily easy, and not time consuming (about 20 minutes tops working at a good pace, including unboxing and using the Setup guide) No tools needed
  • Supports Blu-ray 3D (rare among education 3D projectors) as well as Side by Side, and Top/Bottom 3D.  (does not support Frame Sequential)
  • Both brighter and quieter in Eco mode than competing projectors running at full power (2D or 3D)
  • Lamp life up to 5000 hours for low long term cost of operation (4000 hours at full power)
  • Respectable image sharpness despite being a two projector “stack”
  • Comes with stacking brackets already pre-mounted
  • Decent built in sound, but will need help filling larger rooms (there is an audio out for that)
  • Excellent warranty

Videos that are part of the Projector Reviews TV channel are created by Projector Reviews Inc. If we review a projector and it wins one of our awards, it becomes elligible for a video summary. Of course, we can only do a limited number of these videos. In some cases, we will choose a projector review to do a video of. In other cases, a request may come from the manufacturer. As we do with the rest of the content on our website, we offer manufacturers Permissions. With these paid Permissions, manufacturers can post these videos on their own websites, pass them out to their dealers, and use them for other promotional purposes including trade shows and point-of-sale displays in retail stores.

These videos are very short versions of the full review. In just a few minutes worth of video we can’t begin to capture all the information in the review, so we call this a video summary.

If this video is positive and enthusiastic about the projector, is simply because the review itself was positive and enthusiastic. We try to make the videos more fun, a bit less dry, with far less technical detail. Enjoy, but also visit the full review for more depth, even the settings that work best. Thanks! -art
