We calculated the average reviews for all Optoma projectors and also specifically for Optoma projectors and found that in both cases Optoma had good reviews.
Only Released Five Months Ago
This projector was only released five months ago.
Supports Full HD Projection
The Optoma EH330 supports Full HD projection. Most of the other projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EH330 do not support Full HD projection.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the other projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including a cheaper multimedia projector such as the Viewsonic Pro7827HD ($788.00) or you might consider a higher scoring multimedia projector such as the Optoma HD28DSE ($674.00).
It is worth considering alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Optoma EH331.
Has a Built-In Speaker
Like most of the other similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the EH330, the Optoma EH330 has a built-in speaker.
There are a number of alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might also want to consider including the Viewsonic PJD7831HDL ($699.99) which is cheaper; or the Optoma HD28DSE ($674.00) which has better reviews.
Alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might also want to consider include the Optoma EH331.
1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution
This multimedia projector has a native projector resolution of 1080p (1920x1080), which is the most frequently found native projector resolution on projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to it.
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution
The Optoma EH330 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this projector). This data projector also support graphics resolutions of 800 x 600 (SVGA), 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 1280 x 768 (WXGA) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). Projectors that were released in the last year graphics resolutions range from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).
+2 More reasons for
The average weight of latest multimedia projectors is 6.9kg. At only 2.2 kilograms, the Optoma EH330 is quite light compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the EH330.
6 Reasons Against
Does Not Support 3D Image Projection
The Optoma EH330 does not support 3D image projection, unlike most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the EH330.
We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D image projection to this projector and we think the Optoma HD28DSE ($674.00); or the Viewsonic PJD7831HDL ($699.99) are also worth considering.
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
Like most of the other new projectors, the Optoma EH330 does not support WiFi connectivity.
Quite Small Uniformity
The smallest uniformity of latest data projectors is 70%, the biggest is 90%, and the average uniformity is 81%. With a uniformity of only 70 percent, the Optoma EH330's uniformity is one of the smallest amongst new projectors.
Quite Small Lamp Power
The lamp power of new projectors range from 50W to 470W, and the average lamp power is 270W. With a lamp power of only 195 Watts, the Optoma EH330 has a fairly small lamp power compared to most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as the EH330.
+3 More reasons against
Very Low RMS Rated Power
At only 2 Watts, the Optoma EH330 has a fairly low RMS rated power compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the EH330. The average RMS rated power of projectors that were launched around the same time as the EH330 is 8.3W.
Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port
Most new projectors have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, including the Optoma EH330 which has one VGA (D-Sub) port.

Total running cost over 5 years
Running costs for this projector have been estimated based on other similar projectors. If you know how much electricity and water the Optoma EH330uses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this projector over 5 years will generate 0.38 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 10 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
