Good Brand

On average Optoma projectors are rated 88 out of 100, which is in the top 15% of all multimedia projector manufacturers that we have looked at.


Video

Supports Full HD

The Optoma EH505 supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to this projector do not support full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which support full HD to this data projector and we think cheaper projectors such as the Vivitek D5110W-WNL is also worth considering.

Alternative multimedia projectors which also support full HD that you might want to look at include the Sony VPLFH31 ($3,029.95).

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma EH505 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors of this age and type also have a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Panasonic PT-EW540 which has better reviews; or the PT-EX610 ($2,849.95), or the T-EW540 both from Panasonic which is cheaper.

Projector

WUXGA (1920x1200) Resolution

The highest resolution of the Optoma EH505 is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a XGA (1024x768) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

A WUXGA (1920x1200) projector native resolution is in fact the best resolution amongst all 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as this data projector.

An XGA (1024x768) projector native resolution is the worst resolution across similar types of multimedia projector.

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 5,000 ANSI lumens, the Optoma EH505 has a fairly typical projector brightness compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 5,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including a cheaper multimedia projector such as the Vivitek D5110W-WNL, or the Sony VPL-FX35 ($1,500) or you might consider a better rated multimedia projector such as the Panasonic PT-EW540.

Quite Loud Noise Level

At 42 decibels, the Optoma EH505 has a very loud noise level compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as this data projector. The average noise level of projectors that were released more than two years ago is 36dB, and the noise levels range from 28dB to 54dB.

We compared all the other 42dB noise level multimedia projectors to this data projector and we think the Vivitek D5110W-WNL which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you are not worried about having a louder noise level then you might also want to consider the Panasonic PT-EX510 (35dB) which is also cheaper.
