9 Reasons For

Good Brand

On average Optoma multimedia projectors are rated 89%, which is in the top 17% of all data projector brands that we have assessed.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The TW615-GOV supports 3D image projection, unlike most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec, the Optoma TW615-GOV has a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker to this data projector and we think a higher Kagoo Rating™ product such as the Epson V11H475020 ($633.00) are also worth considering.
