18 Reasons For

Optoma Has Good Projector Reviews

3000:1 contrast ratio projectors produced by Optoma have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all data projectors (not just 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors) and found that Optoma also has good reviews across its entire range.

Good Size

One person said in their reviews that the product was lightweight. Pcmag.com said on PC Mag “The Optoma TW762 ($1,100 street) would be a fairly typical lightweight projector” in their review.

Good Product Quality

One person wrote in their reviews that it was good quality. Five years ago Pc Mag wrote on PC Mag “Although data image quality is certainly acceptable” in their Optoma TW762 review but even so they only scored the product 3 stars.

Good Picture Quality

One Optoma TW762 owner considered that the Optoma TW762 had good picture quality.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Unlike most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the TW762 which do not support 3D image projection, the Optoma TW762 supports 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including the NP-M311W, or the NP-V311 ($579.00) both from NEC or the Infocus IN3124 which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma TW762 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other projectors of this type and age also have a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq SH960, the NEC V281W, or the Epson EB-430 LW.

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of projectors of this type and age is 3,500 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightness range from 100 ANSI lumens to 8,000 ANSI lumens. At 4,000 ANSI lumens, the Optoma TW762 has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the TW762.

We compared all the other 4,000 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors to this data projector and we think because of it's better review score, the CP-WX4022 ($1,032.99), and the CPWX4022WN both from Hitachi or the Optoma TX762 is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the LG BC775 (5,000 ANSI lumens), or the Hitachi CP-WU8460 (6,000 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Optoma TW762 is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's 8% more resolution than a 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago. 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) is also supported by this projector. This data projector also support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 640 x 480 (VGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all multimedia projectors of this spec and age the worst resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

We compared all the other 31dB noise level data projectors to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the TX762, the TX615, and the TW610STi ($717.99) all from Optoma is also worth considering.
