13 Reasons For

Optoma Has Good Multimedia Projector Reviews

We checked 1,709 expert and owner reviews for Optoma projectors and found that on average Optoma has good ratings compared to other brands. We also found that Optoma has good ratings specifically for its 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma W415e supports 3D image projection. Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than a year do not support 3D image projection.

Alternative data projectors which support 3D image projection currently available that you might also want to consider include a cheaper data projector such as the Infocus IN1116 ($880.99) or you might consider a higher scoring data projector such as the W2000, or the W1110 both from Benq.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma W415e has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Vivitek DH913 which is cheaper; or the Benq W2000, or the Epson 1284 ($799.99) which has better reviews.

That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by projectors of a similar spec and age to the W415e. This data projector also support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA) and 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

Fairly Big Offset

Across all the 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the W415e the offsets range from 8% to 130%, and the average offset is 71%. At 118 percent, the Optoma W415e has a fairly big offset compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the W415e.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Optoma W415e does not support Full HD projection, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the W415e also do not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support Full HD projection to this projector and we think the Vivitek DH913 or the Benq W2000, or the Epson 1284 ($799.99) are also worth considering.
