12 Reasons For

Popular Choice

Across all projectors, the HD151 is one the fastest selling products currently available according to Amazon sales data.

Optoma Projectors Have Good Reviews

Optoma is one of the superior projector manufacturers according to average reviews from users and experts, and Optoma also has good ratings for its projectors.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Optoma HD151 supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors that were released more than two years ago do not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative multimedia projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including the GT1070, or the GT1080 ($674.00) both from Optoma or the LG PA1000 which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Unlike most of the other projectors that were launched more than two years ago which do not have a built-in speaker, the Optoma HD151 has a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including a cheaper projector such as the Optoma W305ST or you might consider a higher rated projector such as the Optoma GT1070, or the Benq GP20.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the HD151, the Optoma HD151 supports 3D image projection.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection and we think the Optoma GT1070, and the Benq GP20 which has better reviews; or the Optoma W305ST which is cheaper are also worth considering.
