10 Reasons For

Optoma Has Good Reviews for Its Data Projectors

Optoma 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good ratings on average and across all projectors Optoma is one of the better rated manufacturers.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are older than two years support 3D image projection, including the Optoma EX555.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors which support 3D image projection and we think the MS502, the MX518, and the MW519 all from Benq which have a better Kagoo Rating™ are also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other projectors of this age and type, the Optoma EX555 has a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker to this data projector and we think a better rated multimedia projector such as the MX518, the MS502, and the MW519 all from Benq are also worth considering.

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 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors that support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA), 640 x 480 (VGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA) and we think a better rated multimedia projector such as the Optoma DS330 are also worth considering.

If the resolution of this 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projector is not high enough for you then you might want to also look at the Optoma DX330 (1024 x 768 (XGA and higher rated),1280 x 1024 (SXGA and higher rated),1600 x 1200 (UXGA and higher rated),640 x 480 (VGA and higher rated),800 x 600 (SVGA and higher rated) and higher rated).

Supports Four Video Modes

The number of supported video mode on the Optoma EX555 is more than most projectors that are a comparable age to it. This data projector supports a 480p video mode, which is the most frequently supported video mode supported by 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the EX555. The video modes "1080i", "480i" and "720p" are also supported by this Optoma projector.

Chart Edit

Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The shortest service life of lamp in economic mode of 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the EX555 is 3,000h, the longest is 6,500h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 5,700h. At 6,500 hours, the Optoma EX555 has a fairly long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the EX555.

Chart Edit

Quiet Noise Level

At only 30 decibels, the Optoma EX555 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as the EX555. Projectors of this age and spec have noise levels of between 26dB and 40dB.

We compared all the other 30dB noise level data projectors to this projector and we think a higher rated product such as the Benq MX503 ($599.00) are also worth considering.

If you are not concerned about having a louder noise level then you might want to consider the Optoma EW556 (30dB).

A Bit Shallow

At only 220 millimeters, the Optoma EX555 is fairly shallow compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age. The depths of 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the EX555 range from 100mm to 330mm, and the average depth is 220mm.

Chart Edit

Very Short

With a height of only 84 millimeters, the Optoma EX555 is fairly short compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the EX555. The shortest projector that has been available for a similar time to the EX555 is 76mm tall, the tallest is 240mm, and the average height is 130mm.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The average weight of comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the EX555 is 2,800g. The Optoma EX555 is one of the lighter 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the EX555 (only 2,200 grams) amongst 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most of the 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the EX555, including the Optoma EX555, do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago, the Optoma EX555 does not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Very Small Lamp Power

With a lamp power of only 190 Watts, the Optoma EX555 has one of the smaller lamp power amongst data projectors of this age. Projectors of a comparable spec and age to the EX555 have lamp power of between 190W and 310W.

Chart Edit

Very Small Uniformity

The smallest uniformity of multimedia projectors of this age and type is 80%, the biggest is 130%, and the average uniformity is 89%. At only 80 percent, the Optoma EX555 has a quite small uniformity compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that are older than two years.

Chart Edit

Very Small RMS Rated Power

The Optoma EX555 has a quite small RMS rated power (only 2 Watts) compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are more than two years old. Across all the 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the EX555 the RMS rated power range from 2W to 20W.

Chart Edit

Only Two VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Optoma EX555 is a two VGA (D-Sub) port projector. Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Very Small Offset

The offsets of data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the EX555 range from 110% to 150%. The Optoma EX555 has a fairly small offset (only 115 percent) compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that are older than two years.

3 Other reasons to consider the Optoma EX555

Over Two Years Old

It was over two years ago when Optoma released the EX555.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Optoma EX555 has a pretty standard projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec.

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to consider the Optoma EW556 (3200 ANSI lumens).

XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution

This projector has a native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768), which is the most frequently found native projector resolution on 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are more than two years old.

Alternative multimedia projectors that have a resolution of XGA (1024x768) which you might want to also look at include a higher Kagoo Rating™ product such as the Benq MX503 ($599.00).

If the resolution of this 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projector is not high enough for you then you might want to consider the TW519 (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated), or the MW721 ($145.95) (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated) both from Benq.
