The Epson PowerLite 955WH is a compact classroom projector offering a very bright image and features well suited to the typical classroom environment. It projects a very sharp image, with its native 1280 x 800 resolution, and offers picture modes providing good color accuracy. While the PowerLite 955WH is not a pico or pocket class of projector, it is a compact unit making it easy to move between classrooms (or conference rooms), when it has not been permanently mounted. With a retail price of $899 and a relatively long 5,000 lamp life (in normal mode and up to 10,000 hours in Eco mode), it provides an economical solution for the education market. The PowerLite 955WH is one of the higher-end models within Epson's PowerLite 9xx line of classroom projectors that starts with the entry-level model PowerLite 97H, with XGA resolution and a rated 2700 lumens of brightness, which sells for $350 less than the PowerLite 955WH reviewed here.
We wish to thank Epson America for sponsoring this year's Best Classroom Projectors report, in which this projector is considered.
