Only Released Eight Months Ago
This projector is one of the most recent projectors to be released.
Supports Full HD
Unlike most of the other data projectors that are a comparable age to the EH330 which do not support full HD, the Optoma EH330 supports full HD.
We compared this projector to all the other projectors which support full HD and we think the Epson Home Cinema 2045 ($699.99) which has better reviews is also worth considering.
Has a Built-In Speaker(s)
The Optoma EH330 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other new data projectors.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including because of it's better review score, the Optoma GT5500 ($1,358.83).
1080p (1920x1080) Projector Native Resolution
This multimedia projector has a projector native resolution of 1080p (1920x1080), which is typical of many similar spec multimedia projectors that were released in the last 12 months.
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Supported Graphics Resolutions
The highest resolution supported by the Optoma EH330 is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of the most frequently found supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this data projector). In addition, this projector support supported graphics resolutionss of 800 x 600 (SVGA), 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 1280 x 768 (WXGA) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). Data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the EH330 supported graphics resolutionss range from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).
+3 More reasons for
The Optoma EH330 is quite light (only 2.2 kilograms) compared to most of the other recently released data projectors. Data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the EH330 have weights of between 2.7g and 28kg.
Very Low Power Consumption (economy Mode)
With a power consumption (economy mode) of only 187 Watts, the Optoma EH330 has one of the lower power consumption (economy mode)s amongst data projectors of this age. The lowest power consumption (economy mode) of data projectors that came out in the last year is 180W and the highest is 850W.
7 Reasons Against
Does Not Support 3D
Most latest data projectors do not support 3D. The Optoma EH330 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.
Does Not Support Wi-Fi
Like most of the other new data projectors, the Optoma EH330 does not support wi-Fi.
There are a number of other projectors which also support wi-Fi which you might also want to look at including the Epson Home Cinema 2045 ($699.99) which is also higher rated.
Very Small Uniformity
The uniformitys of latest data projectors range from 70% to 90%. The Optoma EH330 has a fairly small uniformity (only 70 percent) compared to most of the other new comparable spec projectors.
Quite Small Bulb Power
The smallest bulb power of data projectors that came out around the same time as the EH330 is 190W and the biggest is 470W. When compared to other recently released data projectors that we have assessed, the Optoma EH330's bulb power of only 195 Watts is one of the smallest.
+4 More reasons against
Very Low RMS Rated Power
With an RMS rated power of only 2 Watts, the Optoma EH330 has one of the lower RMS rated powers amongst data projectors of this age. Across all the new data projectors the RMS rated powers range from 1W to 20W.
Only One VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantity
Most similar spec projectors that have been available for the last year have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys, including the Optoma EH330 which has one VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity.
Only One HDMI Ports Quantity
The Optoma EH330 is a one HDMI ports quantity multimedia projector. Most of the other recently released data projectors have between one and three HDMI ports quantitys.
1 Other reason to consider the Optoma EH330
Average Projector Brightness
At 3,100 ANSI lumens, the Optoma EH330 has a relatively typical projector brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to the EH330.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 3,100 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the Optoma X340.
If you want a multimedia projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the EH345 ($678.93) (3,200 ANSI lumens), or the X345 ($468.27) (3,200 ANSI lumens) both from Optoma or the Benq TH530 (3,200 ANSI lumens).

Total running cost over 5 years
Running costs for this projector have been estimated based on other similar projectors. If you know how much electricity and water the Optoma EH330uses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this projector over 5 years will generate 0.38 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 10 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
