12 Reasons For

Optoma Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

We calculated the average reviews for all Optoma data projectors and also specifically for Optoma 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors and found that in both cases Optoma had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma TX762 supports 3D image projection, unlike most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the TX762 which do not support 3D image projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors which support 3D image projection and we think because of it's better review score, the NEC NP-M311W is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma TX762 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the TX762.

Chart Edit

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

The projector brightness of projectors of this age and type range from 100 ANSI lumens to 8,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,500 ANSI lumens. At 4,000 ANSI lumens, the Optoma TX762 has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Optoma TX762 is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's 8% more resolution than the most frequently found graphics resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) (which is also supported by this data projector). In addition, this projector support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1360 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).

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The Optoma TX762 has one of the quieter noise levels (only 31 decibels) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age. Across all the projectors that have been around for more than two years the noise levels range from 26dB to 45dB.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other 31dB noise level projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the Optoma TW610STi is also worth considering.

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Optoma TX762 is a three VGA (D-Sub) port data projector. Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the TX762 only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Quite High Number of Colours

At 1,070 million, the Optoma TX762 has a quite high number of colours compared to most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the TX762. Across all the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the TX762 the numbers of colours range from 1M to 1,100M.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Lamp Power

The Optoma TX762 has a quite big lamp power (280 Watts) compared to most of the other data projectors that were launched around the same time as the TX762. Across all the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago the lamp power range from 140W to 400W.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on projectors of a similar age and spec to it.

Chart Edit

Narrow

At only 324 millimeters, the Optoma TX762 is quite narrow compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the TX762. The narrowest multimedia projector of a similar age and type to the TX762 is 120mm wide and the widest is 510mm.

Chart Edit

Light

The lightest projector of a comparable spec and age to the TX762 is 230g heavy and the heaviest is 30kg. The Optoma TX762 is fairly light (only 2.9 kilograms) compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the TX762.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other data projectors of this type and age, the Optoma TX762 does not support Full HD projection.

Alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might want to look at include the Hitachi CP-WX8255A.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other projectors of this age and spec, the Optoma TX762 does not support WiFi connectivity.

It is worth considering alternative data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the NEC NP-UM330 ($935.61) which also has a higher rating.

Very Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

At only 3,000 hours, the Optoma TX762 has a fairly short service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years. The service life of lamp in economic mode of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago range from 230h to 20,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 5,800h.

Chart Edit

Very Short Lamp Service Life

The Optoma TX762 has one of the shorter lamp service lives (only 2,000 hours) amongst multimedia projectors of this age. The shortest lamp service life of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the TX762 is 1,500h and the longest is 30,000h.

Chart Edit

Quite Low RMS Rated Power

Across all the data projectors that were released more than two years ago the RMS rated power range from 0.5W to 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 11W. With an RMS rated power of only 8 Watts, the Optoma TX762 has one of the lower RMS rated power amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Port

The Optoma TX762 is a one USB 2.0 port projector. Most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the TX762 have between one and two USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Very Small Matrix Size

The average matrix size of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years is 0.61". At only 0.55 inches, the Optoma TX762 has a fairly small matrix size compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age.
