8 Reasons For

Optoma Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

Optoma has good average ratings for its projectors as well as across its entire multimedia projector range compared to other manufacturers.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Unlike most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the ZX210ST which do not have a built-in speaker, the ZX210ST has a built-in speaker.

Alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Acer H7531D, or the Epson PowerLite 98.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Optoma ZX210ST is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this data projector). In addition, this multimedia 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) and 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). The resolution of all projectors that are a similar age to the ZX210ST ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).

Chart Edit

Two Built-In Speakers

The Optoma ZX210ST has more built-in speakers than most of the projectors of this age and spec. Most of the projectors that have been available for a similar time to the ZX210ST only have one built-in speaker, however this Optoma projector has two built-in speakers.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Lamp Service Life

The shortest lamp service life of similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the ZX210ST is 1,500h, the longest is 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 7,900h. With a lamp service life of 20,000 hours, the Optoma ZX210ST has a fairly long lamp service life compared to most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the ZX210ST.

Chart Edit

Supports Eight Video Formats

The Optoma ZX210ST has a greater number of supported video formats than most data projectors of a comparable age and spec to it. This multimedia projector supports an AVI video format, which is the most commonly supported video format supported by projectors that were launched more than two years ago. The video formats "3GP", "H.264", "MOV", "MP4", "MPEG", "MPEG4" and "XVID" are also supported by this Optoma data projector.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on projectors that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

Supports Two Image Formats

The ZX210ST has a greater number of supported image formats than most projectors that have been available for a comparable time to it. This projector supports a JPG image format, which is the most frequently supported image format supported by projectors that were released more than two years ago. The image format "BMP" is also supported by this data projector.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the ZX210ST support 3D image projection, however the Optoma ZX210ST does not support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also support 3D image projection including the PowerLite Home Cinema 5030ub ($2,995.00), or the PowerLite Pro G6900WU both from Epson or the Benq W7000+ which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the ZX210ST, the ZX210ST does not support Full HD projection.

Alternative multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might also want to consider include the Benq W7000+, or the Panasonic PTAE7000U.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The ZX210ST does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other projectors that were released more than two years ago also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the Vivitek Qumi Q7 ($650.00), or the Benq GP20 is also worth considering.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Across all the projectors that have been available for more than two years the projector brightness range from 300 ANSI lumens to 9,200 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 2,900 ANSI lumens. The ZX210ST has a quite dim projector brightness (only 2,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Alternative 2,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available that you might also want to consider include because of it's better review score, the W7000+, or the LX60ST both from Benq or the LG HECTO.

If you are looking for a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Optoma HD50 (2,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the Epson EH-TW6100 (2,300 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Only XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the ZX210ST is XGA (1024x768). That's 62% less resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) projector, which is the most common resolution. Projectors of this age and type native projector resolutions range from SVGA (800x600) to 1080p (1920x1080).

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level in Economy Mode

At 32 decibels, the Optoma ZX210ST has a quite loud noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for more than two years. The average noise level in economy mode of similar spec data projectors that were launched around the same time as the ZX210ST is 29dB, and the noise levels in economy mode range from 20dB to 40dB.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Matrix Size

Multimedia projectors of this age and type have matrix sizes of between 0.45" and 0.76", and the average matrix size is 0.64". The Optoma ZX210ST has one of the smaller matrix sizes (only 0.55 inches) amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age.

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 34 decibels, the Optoma ZX210ST has a pretty typical noise level compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the ZX210ST.

Alternative 34dB noise level data projectors currently available which you might want to look at include because of it's better review score, the W770ST, or the W750 both from Benq.
