Optoma EH505 Projector Introduction

8 Reasons For

Optoma Has Good Multimedia Projector Reviews

Multimedia projectors produced by Optoma have an average rating of 88 out of 100, which is in the top 19% of all multimedia projector manufacturers that we have analysed.

Supports 3D

Unlike most of the other projectors of this age and spec which do not support 3D, the Optoma EH505 supports 3D.

Alternative projectors which support 3D currently available that you might also want to consider include because of it's better review score, the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price].

Supports Full HD

The Optoma EH505 supports full HD. Most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type do not support full HD.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative multimedia projectors which support full HD currently available including the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector[plb_3156294_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years, the Optoma EH505 has a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

WUXGA (1920x1200) Projector Native Resolution

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

A WUXGA (1920x1200) projector native resolution is actually the best resolution amongst all 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years.

An XGA (1024x768) projector native resolution is the worst resolution amongst comparable types of data projector.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The Optoma EH505 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years.

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) supported graphics resolutions is in fact the best supported resolution amongst all data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the EH505.

The worst supported resolution across comparable types of data projector is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Fairly Big Bulb Power

The smallest bulb power of 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the EH505 is 170W, the biggest is 4,000W, and the average bulb power is 320W. When compared to other comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago, the bulb power of the Optoma EH505 of 400 Watts is one of the biggest.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Optoma EH505 does not support wi-Fi, although this is within the context that most of the other data projectors of a similar age and type to the EH505 also do not support wi-Fi.

Alternative projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might want to consider include the Epson PowerLite 1761W[plb_1735741_price], or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro[plb_1759924_price].

Very Short Service Life of Lamp

Projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the EH505 have service life of lamps of between 200h and 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 5,200h. The Optoma EH505 has a fairly short service life of lamp (only 1,500 hour) compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the EH505.

Chart Edit

Very Low Horizontal Synchronization (max)

At only 91 kilohertz, the Optoma EH505 has a quite low horizontal synchronization (max) compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years. The horizontal synchronization (max)s of multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago range from 91kHz to 110kHz.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Ports Quantity

Most multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the EH505 have between one and two USB 2.0 ports quantitys, including the Optoma EH505 which has one USB 2.0 ports quantity.

Chart Edit

Heavy

At 8.6 kilograms, the Optoma EH505 is quite heavy compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years. The weights of multimedia projectors of this type and age range from 370g to 23kg, and the average weight is 6.5kg.

Chart Edit

Very Loud Noise Level (economic Mode)

With a noise level (economic mode) of 37 decibels, the Optoma EH505 has a very loud noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to the EH505. The quietest noise level (economic mode) of data projectors of this age and type is 26dB, the loudest is 37dB, and the average noise level (economic mode) is 30dB.
