We calculated the average reviews for all Optoma multimedia projectors and also specifically for Optoma 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors and found that in both cases Optoma had good reviews compared to other brands.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age, the Optoma EX556 supports 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma EX556 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the EX556.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq MX522 ($560.13).

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

This data projector supports a graphics resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA)|1280 x 1024 (SXGA)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA)|640 x 480 (VGA)|800 x 600 (SVGA), which is typical of many 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.

Chart Edit

Three HDMI Ports

Most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the EX556 only have between one and two HDMI ports, however the Optoma EX556 has three HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

Across all the 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years the noise levels range from 26dB to 40dB, and the average noise level is 32dB. The Optoma EX556 has one of the quieter noise levels (only 30 decibels) amongst similar spec multimedia projectors of this age.

Alternative 30dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available that you might want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Benq MX503.

If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Optoma EW556 (30dB).

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The Optoma EX556 has a fairly long service life of lamp in economic mode (6,500 hours) compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age. The service life of lamp in economic mode of projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the EX556 range from 3,000h to 10,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 6,100h.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on comparable spec projectors that have been around for a similar time to it.

Chart Edit

Light

The Optoma EX556 is quite light (only 2.2 kilograms) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the EX556. The weights of 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the EX556 range from 1.3kg to 5.4kg, and the average weight is 2.8kg.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most projectors that came out more than two years ago do not support Full HD projection. The Optoma EX556 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

It is worth considering alternative multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Benq MS504 ($308.99) which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Optoma EX556 does not support WiFi connectivity, although keep in mind that most of the other data projectors that are a comparable age to the EX556 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

The Optoma EX556 has a quite low maximum horizontal synchronization (only 91.1 kilohertz) compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the EX556. The average maximum horizontal synchronization of comparable spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the EX556 is 95kHz, and the maximum horizontal synchronization range from 0.1kHz to 110kHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Maximum Vertical Synchronization

With a maximum vertical synchronization of only 85 kilohertz, the Optoma EX556 has a fairly low maximum vertical synchronization compared to most of the other projectors of this age and type. Across all the 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the EX556 the maximum vertical synchronization range from 0.12kHz to 480kHz.

3 Other reasons to consider the Optoma EX556

Released Over Four Years Ago

Optoma released the EX556 over four years ago.

Average Projector Brightness

The Optoma EX556 has a relatively typical projector brightness (3,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years.

We compared all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this projector and we think the MW663, and the MX819ST ($589.99) both from Benq which has better reviews is also worth considering.
