9 Reasons For

Good Brand

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

Supports 3D Image Projection

Unlike most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the TX615 which do not support 3D image projection, the Optoma TX615 supports 3D image projection.

Other projectors which support 3D image projection currently available that you might also want to look at include because of it's better review score, the NEC NP-M311W.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the TX615, the Optoma TX615 has a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Optoma TX615 is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's 8% more resolution than a 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by projectors of this spec and age. 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) is also supported by this projector. This Optoma projector also support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 640 x 480 (VGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Projectors that have been available for around the same time as the TX615 graphics resolutions range from 640 x 480 (VGA) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

Across all the projectors of a similar age and type to the TX615 the noise levels range from 26dB to 45dB, and the average noise level is 35dB. The Optoma TX615 has one of the quieter noise levels (only 31 decibels) amongst similar spec data projectors of this age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 31dB noise level projectors currently available including the Optoma TW610STi which has better reviews.

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Optoma TX615 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the TX615. Most of the data projectors that were released more than two years ago only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, however this multimedia projector has three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Quite High Number of Colours

At 1,070 million, the Optoma TX615 has a quite high number of colours compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the TX615. Across all the comparable spec multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the TX615 the numbers of colours range from 1M to 1,100M, and the average number of colours is 210M.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

Light

With a weight of only 2.9 kilograms, the Optoma TX615 is fairly light compared to most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the TX615. Similar spec projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the TX615 have weights of between 230g and 30kg, and the average weight is 4.9kg.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Optoma TX615 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other similar spec projectors that have been available for more than two years also do not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support Full HD projection to this data projector and we think the Hitachi CP-WX8255A is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Optoma TX615 does not support WiFi connectivity, although keep in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the TX615 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity which you might also want to look at including the NEC NP-UM330 ($935.61) which also has a higher rating.

Only One USB 2.0 Port

The Optoma TX615 is a one USB 2.0 port multimedia projector. Most of the other data projectors that are a comparable age to the TX615 have between one and two USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Very Small Matrix Size

Across all the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years the matrix sizes range from 0.55" to 0.75", and the average matrix size is 0.61". At only 0.55 inches, the Optoma TX615 has a fairly small matrix size compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

This 3000:1 contrast ratio data projector has been on the market for over three years.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,500 ANSI lumens, the Optoma TX615 has a pretty typical projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the TX615.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth considering include the Infocus IN3118 (3,600 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
