Optoma EH503 Projector Introduction

9 Reasons For

Optoma Has Good Projector Reviews

Optoma projectors have an average rating of 88%, which is in the top 19% of all projector brands that we have looked at.

Supports 3D

The Optoma EH503 supports 3D, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors of this age and spec do not support 3D.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors which support 3D currently available including the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price] which has better reviews.

Chart Edit

1080p (1920x1080) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the Optoma EH503 is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of a XGA (1024x768) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution. The worst resolution of all 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the EH503 is XGA (1024x768) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The Optoma EH503 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) data projector, which is the most common resolution supported by comparable spec projectors that came out around the same time as the EH503. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this data projector. This projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the EH503 the worst resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Bulb Power

The average bulb power of projectors of a similar spec and age to the EH503 is 320W. The Optoma EH503 has a quite big bulb power (370 Watts) compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the EH503.

Chart Edit

Two Audio (L,R) Ins

Most 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the EH503 have between one and two audio (L,R) ins, including the Optoma EH503 which has two audio (L,R) ins.

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on similar spec data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years.

Chart Edit

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the EH503, the Optoma EH503 does not support wi-Fi.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Epson PowerLite 1761W[plb_1735741_price], or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro[plb_1759924_price] which also has a higher rating.

The average service life of lamp of multimedia projectors of this spec and age is 5,200h, and the service life of lamps range from 200h to 30,000h. When compared to other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the EH503 that we have assessed the service life of lamp of, the Optoma EH503's service life of lamp of only 1,500 hour is one of the shortest.
