8 Reasons For

Good Brand

On average Optoma projectors have good ratings as do all multimedia projectors manufactured by Optoma.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Optoma HD240W supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors that were launched in the last 12 months do not support Full HD projection.

There are a number of other projectors which support Full HD projection currently available that you might also want to look at including a cheaper projector such as the Optoma EH345[plb_3907680_price] or you might consider a better rated projector such as the Optoma HD28DSE[plb_3141654_price].

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection to this projector and we think the Benq 9H.JED77.23E[plb_3766900_price] is also worth considering.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma HD240W supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the HD240W.

Alternative data projectors which support 3D image projection currently available which you might also want to consider include the Optoma HD28DSE[plb_3141654_price] which has better reviews.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection to this multimedia projector and we think the Viewsonic PJD7831HDL[plb_3755325_price], or the Benq 9H.JED77.23E[plb_3766900_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma HD240W has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the HD240W.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Optoma HD28DSE[plb_3141654_price] which has better reviews.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this data projector and we think the Viewsonic PJD7831HDL[plb_3755325_price], or the Benq 9H.JED77.23E[plb_3766900_price] is also worth considering.

The Optoma HD240W supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) data projector, which is the most common resolution supported by projectors that came out around the same time as the HD240W. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this data projector. In addition, this multimedia projector support graphics resolutions of 800 x 600 (SVGA) and 1024 x 768 (XGA) and 1280 x 768 (WXGA). The resolution of all recently released similar spec projectors ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).
