The RMS rated power of projectors of a comparable spec and age to the X501 range from 2W to 30W, and the average RMS rated power is 6.8W. When compared to other multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago that we have checked the RMS rated power of, the Optoma X501's RMS rated power of 30 Watts is one of the highest.
