Optoma EH505 Projector Introduction

8 Reasons For

Optoma Projectors Have Good Reviews

Projectors made by Optoma have an average rating of 88%, which is in the top 22% of all multimedia projector brands that we have assessed.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma EH505 supports 3D image projection, which is unusual. Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the EH505 do not support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including the Hitachi CP-DH300[plb_2149864_price] which is cheaper.

It is worth considering other multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Vivitek D5110W-WNL[plb_2358468_price].

Supports Full HD Projection

The Optoma EH505 supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the EH505 do not support Full HD projection.

There are a number of alternative projectors which support Full HD projection currently available that you might also want to look at including cheaper data projectors such as the Hitachi CP-DH300[plb_2149864_price].

Alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might also want to look at include the Sony VPLFH31[plb_1475953_price], or the Vivitek D5110W-WNL[plb_2358468_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other data projectors of a comparable type and age to the EH505, the Optoma EH505 has a built-in speaker.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker and we think a cheaper projector such as the Hitachi CP-DH300[plb_2149864_price] or you might consider a higher rated projector such as the Epson EB-1771[plb_1748930_price] are also worth considering.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Vivitek D5110W-WNL[plb_2358468_price] is also worth considering.
