14 Reasons For

Good Brand

Based on 1,734 user and expert reviews, Optoma has good reviews for its projectors. Optoma also has good reviews specifically within its 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors range compared to other manufacturers.

Supports 3D

The Optoma EH515 supports 3D. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the EH515 do not support 3D.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which support 3D to this projector and we think the NEC U321H[plb_3095041_price], and the Benq MW883UST[plb_3181970_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

It is worth also looking at other projectors which also support 3D including the Optoma EH515T[plb_3108718_price].

Supports Full HD

The Optoma EH515 supports full HD, unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the EH515 which do not support full HD.

There are a number of other projectors which support full HD currently available which you might want to look at including the NEC U321H[plb_3095041_price] which is cheaper.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support full HD including the Optoma EH515T[plb_3108718_price].
