10 Reasons For

Optoma Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

Based on 1,708 expert and user reviews, Optoma has good reviews for its data projectors. Optoma also has good reviews specifically for its projectors compared to other brands.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Optoma HD26LV supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors that have been on the market for the last year do not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma HD26LV supports 3D image projection. Most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the HD26LV also support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other projectors that came out in the last year, the Optoma HD26LV has a built-in speaker.

There are a number of other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might also want to consider including the Vivitek H1186 ($1,038.99) which has better reviews.

1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution

This data projector has a native projector resolution of 1080p (1920x1080), which is the most commonly found native projector resolution on new comparable spec data projectors.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

The Optoma HD26LV supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this data projector). This projector also support graphics resolutions of 800 x 600 (SVGA), 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720) and 1280 x 768 (WXGA) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). The worst resolution of all projectors that have been available for a similar time to the HD26LV is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Two Built-In Speakers

Most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the HD26LV only have one built-in speaker, however the Optoma HD26LV has two built-in speakers.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Lamp Service Life

The Optoma HD26LV has a quite long lamp service life (7,000 hours) compared to most of the other new projectors. The average lamp service life of projectors that have been around for a similar time to the HD26LV is 6,900h, and the lamp service lives range from 1,500h to 30,000h.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Offset

The Optoma HD26LV has one of the bigger offsets (116 percent) amongst projectors of this age. Across all the recently released projectors the offsets range from 11% to 150%.

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

The lowest RMS rated power of new projectors is 1W, the highest is 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 8.1W. With an RMS rated power of 10 Watts, the Optoma HD26LV has a quite high RMS rated power compared to most of the other latest multimedia projectors.

Chart Edit

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most recently released projectors do not support WiFi connectivity. The Optoma HD26LV is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Epson Home Cinema 2045 ($694.95), or the Sony MP-CL1 ($399.99) which also has a higher rating.

Quite Small Digital Zoom

The digital zooms of comparable spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the HD26LV range from 1.1x to 16x, and the average digital zoom is 3.5x. At only 1.1 times zoom factor, the Optoma HD26LV has a quite small digital zoom compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the HD26LV.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

The Optoma HD26LV is a one VGA (D-Sub) port data projector. Most of the other projectors that came out in the last 12 months have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.

2 Other reasons to consider the Optoma HD26LV

Released Nine Months Ago

It was nine months ago when this multimedia projector was released.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,500 ANSI lumens, the Optoma HD26LV has a relatively average projector brightness compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that were released in the last 12 months.

We compared all the other 3,500 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this data projector and we think the Infocus SP1080 ($399.00) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this data projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the Optoma W355 ($733.75) (3,600 ANSI lumens), or the Viewsonic PJD7525W ($586.99) (4,000 ANSI lumens).
