10 Reasons For

Optoma Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

Optoma projectors have an average rating of 88 out of 100, which is in the top 19% of all projector brands that we have looked at.

Supports 3D

Unlike most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to the EW865 which do not support 3D, the Optoma EW865 supports 3D.

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

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma EW865 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EW865 also have a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

The Optoma EW865 has a quite bright projector brightness (6,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable type and age to the EW865. The dimmest projector brightness of comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the EW865 is 110 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 10,000 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the Optoma EW865 is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution supported by 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago. In addition, this multimedia projector support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) supported graphics resolutions is actually the best supported resolution across all 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

A 640 x 480 (VGA) supported graphics resolutions is the worst supported resolution amongst similar types of multimedia projector.

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

The Optoma EW865 has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most frequently found projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768). 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EW865 projector native resolutions range from XGA (1024x768) to WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

Very Big Uniformity

Similar spec data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years have uniformitys of between 78% and 95%. At 95 percent, the Optoma EW865 has a very big uniformity compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the EW865.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Bulb Power

When compared to other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years that we have assessed, the bulb power of the Optoma EW865 of 400 Watts is one of the biggest. Projectors that came out around the same time as the EW865 have bulb powers of between 170W and 4,000W.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level

At only 31 decibels, the Optoma EW865 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the EW865. The quietest noise level of 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago is 28dB, the loudest is 42dB, and the average noise level is 36dB.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on data projectors of this type and age.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The Optoma EW865 does not support full HD, although it is worth noting that most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago also do not support full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which also support full HD to this data projector and we think the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector ($499.00) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EW865 do not support wi-Fi. The Optoma EW865 is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support wi-Fi to this projector and we think the Epson PowerLite 1761W ($549.99), or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro is also worth considering.

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

Projectors that were released more than two years ago have service life of lamp (economic mode)s of between 2,500h and 10,000h. The Optoma EW865 has a quite short service life of lamp (economic mode) (only 3,500 hours) compared to most of the other data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very High Power Consumption (economy Mode)

With a power consumption (economy mode) of 460 Watts, the Optoma EW865 has a very high power consumption (economy mode) compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for more than two years. Across all the 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago the power consumption (economy mode)s range from 200W to 460W, and the average power consumption (economy mode) is 330W.

Chart Edit

Very Heavy

With a weight of 18.3 kilograms, the Optoma EW865's weight is one of the heaviest amongst projectors of this spec and age. Across all the 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago the weights range from 370g to 23kg, and the average weight is 6.5kg.

Chart Edit

Very High Power Consumption (PowerSave)

Across all the 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the EW865 the power consumption (PowerSave)s range from 0.2W to 460W, and the average power consumption (PowerSave) is 200W. When compared to other projectors of this spec and age that we have assessed, the Optoma EW865's power consumption (PowerSave) of 460 Watts is one of the highest.
