13 Reasons For
Expert Reviews Are Good
This Optoma projector received a rating of 80 out of 100 from expert review website Trusted Reviews.
Optoma Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors
Optoma has good average ratings for its projectors as well as across its entire data projector range compared to other manufacturers.
Only Released Four Months Ago
This multimedia projector has only been on the market for four months.
Good High Def TV
One person said that the Optoma HD27 was good at displaying high definition TV. Expert review site Trustedreviews.com mentioned a few weeks ago “As 4K (and faux-4K) models take top billing, regular HD models are getting cheaper” in their Optoma HD27 review.
Supports Full HD Projection
Unlike most of the other projectors that were launched in the last 12 months which do not support Full HD projection, the Optoma HD27 supports Full HD projection.
We compared this projector to all the other projectors which support Full HD projection and we think the Viewsonic Pro7827HD[plb_3305117_price], and the Benq TH530[plb_3888833_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.
We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Optoma GT1080E[plb_3419201_price] is also worth considering.
Supports 3D Image Projection
The Optoma HD27 supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other data projectors that are a comparable age to the HD27.
We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection and we think cheaper data projectors such as the Viewsonic Pro7827HD[plb_3305117_price] is also worth considering.
We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Optoma GT1080E[plb_3419201_price], or the Viewsonic PJD7326[plb_3627578_price].
+8 More reasons for
Has a Built-In Speaker
The Optoma HD27 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the HD27.

1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution
This data projector has a native projector resolution of 1080p (1920x1080), which is typical of many latest projectors.
Two HDMI Ports
The Optoma HD27 is a two HDMI port projector. Most of the other projectors that have been around for the last year have between one and four HDMI ports.
Fairly Long Lamp Service Life
The Optoma HD27 has a quite long lamp service life (8,000 hours) compared to most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the HD27. Projectors that were launched around the same time as the HD27 have lamp service lives of between 1,500h and 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 7,000h.
Fairly Big Offset
At 116 percent, the Optoma HD27 has a fairly big offset compared to most of the other projectors that were launched in the last year. The offsets of projectors that have been around for a similar time to the HD27 range from 11% to 150%, and the average offset is 110%.
Across all the recently released projectors the widths range from 140mm to 590mm. The Optoma HD27 is quite narrow (only 298 millimeters) compared to most of the other recently released similar spec multimedia projectors.
Very Quiet Noise Level
Projectors that have been around for the last year have noise levels of between 22dB and 40dB, and the average noise level is 33dB. The Optoma HD27 has one of the quieter noise levels (only 26 decibels) amongst data projectors of this age.
If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Acer P1286[plb_3765480_price] (31dB and cheaper).
2 Reasons Against
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
The Optoma HD27 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other new projectors also do not support WiFi connectivity.
Very Small Lamp Power
With a lamp power of only 195 Watts, the Optoma HD27 has one of the smaller lamp power amongst projectors of this age. The lamp power of multimedia projectors that were launched in the last year range from 190W to 470W.
1 Other reason to consider the Optoma HD27
Average Projector Brightness
At 3,200 ANSI lumens, the Optoma HD27 has a pretty typical projector brightness compared to most of the other latest projectors.
There are a number of alternative 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available which you might want to consider including the Viewsonic PPJD7828HDL[plb_3372439_price] which is cheaper; or the Viewsonic PJD7720HD[plb_3416548_price] which has better reviews.
If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the W345[pl_3862692_price] (3,300 ANSI lumens and cheaper), or the W355[pl_3862720_price] (3,600 ANSI lumens and cheaper) both from Optoma.
