9 Reasons For

Optoma Has Good Data Projector Reviews

On average multimedia projectors from Optoma are rated 88%, which is in the top 22% of all data projector manufacturers that we have looked at.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma W505 supports 3D image projection, which is unusual. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the W505 do not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma W505 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the W505.

It is worth also looking at other projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Canon WX-520[plb_2199325_price].

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

Projectors of this age and type have projector brightness of between 110 ANSI lumens and 10,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,000 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 5,200 ANSI lumens, the Optoma W505 has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the W505.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

The Optoma W505 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by data projectors of this spec and age. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this projector. This Optoma multimedia projector also 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 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the W505 the resolution ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the Optoma W505 is WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most common native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768). Across all 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for more than two years the worst resolution is XGA (1024x768) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Lamp Power

At 370 Watts, the Optoma W505 has a fairly big lamp power compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the W505. The average lamp power of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago is 320W, and the lamp power range from 170W to 4,000W.

Chart Edit

Two Audio in Ports

The Optoma W505 is a two audio in port data projector. Most of the other data projectors of a similar spec and age to the W505 have between one and two audio in ports.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many similar spec projectors that have been around for a comparable time to it.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other similar spec projectors that came out more than two years ago, the Optoma W505 does not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Optoma W505 does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other data projectors of this age and spec also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Lamp Service Life

The Optoma W505 has one of the shorter lamp service lives (only 1,500 hour) amongst comparable spec multimedia projectors of this age. Across all the 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for more than two years the lamp service lives range from 200h to 30,000h.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The weights of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the W505 range from 370g to 23kg, and the average weight is 6.4kg. At 8.6 kilograms, the Optoma W505 is quite heavy compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the W505.

2 Other reasons to consider the Optoma W505

Released Over Three Years Ago

Optoma released the W505 over three years ago.

Average Noise Level

The Optoma W505 has a pretty typical noise level (37 decibels) compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the W505.

If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Canon WX-520[plb_2199325_price] (38dB).
