The Epson EB-U04 is a WUXGA 3LCD projector that costs just S$1,299

Epson has just pushed out a series of new business-oriented value projectors, including one with a native WUXGA (1,920 x 1,200 pixels) resolution.

Besides its WUXGA resolution, the S$1,299 EB-U04 has color and white brightness of 3,000 lumens, a contrast ratio of 15,000:1, 1.2x zoom ratio, built-in 2W monaural speaker, two HDMI inputs, and two USB ports (one for USB memory, one for USB display and input control). Wireless networking isn’t built-in, though this can be achieved using an optional dongle. A 3LCD-based projector, it also touts a lamp life of up to 10,000 hours under Eco mode, or 5,000 hours under normal use.

Joining the EB-U04 are four other 3LCD projectors: the EB-S31, X31, W31, and X36.
