12 Reasons For

Optoma Has Good Data Projector Reviews

We looked at average ratings for each projector manufacturer and found that whilst Optoma has good average ratings across all projectors, Optoma has unexceptional ratings specifically within its 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors range.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Optoma DX5100 supports Full HD projection, unlike most of the other similar spec data projectors that are more than two years old which do not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma DX5100 supports 3D image projection, unlike most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the DX5100 which do not support 3D image projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection and we think a higher scoring multimedia projector such as the Viewsonic PJD5132 ($387.28) are also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age, including the Optoma DX5100, have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

This projector supports graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA), 640 x 480 (VGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA), which is typical of many similar spec projectors that have been around for a comparable time to it.

Multimedia projectors with a higher resolution that might be worth also looking at include the Optoma X303 (1024 x 768 (XGA and higher rated), 1280 x 720 (HD 720 and higher rated), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA and higher rated), 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080 and higher rated), 640 x 480 (VGA and higher rated), 800 x 600 (SVGA and higher rated) and higher rated).

Big Number of Colours

With a number of colours of 1,073.4 million, the Optoma DX5100 has a quite big number of colours compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the DX5100. The smallest number of colours of multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the DX5100 is 1M, the biggest is 1,100M, and the average number of colours is 580M.

Chart Edit

Has Three Preset Modes

The number of preset modes found on the Optoma DX5100 is more than most comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as it. This projector has a Cinema preset mode, which is the most commonly found preset mode found on 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are older than two years. The preset modes "Custom" and "Game" are also found on this data projector.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Optoma DX5100 is a three VGA (D-Sub) port projector. Most of the other projectors of this type and age only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Supports Six Video Modes

The number of supported video mode on the Optoma DX5100 is more than most 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are older than two years. This projector supports a 576i video mode, which is the most frequently supported video mode supported by data projectors that were released around the same time as the DX5100. The video modes "1080i", "480i", "480p", "576p" and "720p" are also supported by this Optoma multimedia projector.

Chart Edit

Long Lamp Service Life

When compared to other similar spec data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the DX5100 that we have checked, the Optoma DX5100's lamp service life of 10,000 hours is one of the longest. Multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the DX5100 have lamp service lives of between 2,000h and 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 4,300h.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption During PowerSave

15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the DX5100 have power consumption during PowerSave of between 190W and 410W. At only 194 Watts, the Optoma DX5100 has a fairly low power consumption during PowerSave compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Quiet Noise Level

15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the DX5100 have noise levels of between 26dB and 40dB. At only 26 decibels, the Optoma DX5100 has a very quiet noise level compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that are more than two years old.

Other 26dB noise level data projectors that you might want to consider include a higher Kagoo Rating™ product such as the X303, or the W303 both from Optoma.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most of the projectors of this age and type do not support WiFi connectivity, including the Optoma DX5100.

Chart Edit

Dim Projector Brightness

15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are older than two years have projector brightnesses of between 700 ANSI lumens and 8,000 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 2,800 ANSI lumens, the Optoma DX5100 has one of the dimmer projector brightnesses amongst data projectors of this age.

We think you might also be interested in other 2800 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors including a higher rated product such as the PJD5533W, the PJD5132 ($387.28), or the PJD5134 ($449.00) all from Viewsonic.

If you want a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to also look at the Optoma X303 (3000 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Very Small Lamp Power

At only 190 Watts, the Optoma DX5100 has a quite small lamp power compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the DX5100. Across all the 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are older than two years the lamp power range from 190W to 380W, and the average lamp power is 250W.

Chart Edit

Very Small RMS Rated Power

The Optoma DX5100 has one of the smaller RMS rated power (only 2 Watts) amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. Across all the projectors that came out around the same time as the DX5100 the RMS rated power range from 2W to 20W.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Port

The Optoma DX5100 is a one USB 2.0 port multimedia projector. Most of the other projectors of this age and type have between one and two USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Very Small Matrix Size

With a matrix size of only 0.55 inches, the Optoma DX5100 has a fairly small matrix size compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for more than two years. Across all the similar spec projectors that are more than two years old the matrix sizes range from 0.55" to 0.76".

2 Other reasons to consider the Optoma DX5100

Over Two Years Old

Optoma released the DX5100 over two years ago.

XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution

This projector has a native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768), which is typical of many similar spec projectors that are older than two years.

Other multimedia projectors that have a resolution of XGA (1024x768) that you might want to also look at include a higher scoring projector such as the Optoma X303.

Projectors with a higher resolution that might be worth also looking at include the Optoma W303 (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated), or the Epson EB-W16 (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated).
