Optoma Has Good Reviews for Its Data Projectors

Optoma 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good ratings on average and across all projectors Optoma is one of the better rated manufacturers.

Over Two Years Old

It was over two years ago when Optoma released the EX555.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are older than two years support 3D image projection, including the Optoma EX555.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors which support 3D image projection and we think the MS502[pl_1385309_price], the MX518[pl_1521707_price], and the MW519[pl_1538859_price] all from Benq which have a better Kagoo Rating™ are also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other projectors of this age and type, the Optoma EX555 has a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker to this data projector and we think a better rated multimedia projector such as the MX518[pl_1521707_price], the MS502[pl_1385309_price], and the MW519[pl_1538859_price] all from Benq are also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

This projector supports graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA), 640 x 480 (VGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA), which is typical of many 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors that support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA), 640 x 480 (VGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA) and we think a better rated multimedia projector such as the Optoma DS330[plb_1878570_price] are also worth considering.

If the resolution of this 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projector is not high enough for you then you might want to also look at the Optoma DX330[plb_1724110_price] (1024 x 768 (XGA and higher rated),1280 x 1024 (SXGA and higher rated),1600 x 1200 (UXGA and higher rated),640 x 480 (VGA and higher rated),800 x 600 (SVGA and higher rated) and higher rated).

XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution

This projector has a native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768), which is the most frequently found native projector resolution on 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are more than two years old.

Alternative multimedia projectors that have a resolution of XGA (1024x768) which you might want to also look at include a higher Kagoo Rating™ product such as the Benq MX503[plb_1418386_price].

If the resolution of this 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projector is not high enough for you then you might want to consider the TW519[pl_1552764_price] (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated), or the MW721[pl_1561773_price] (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated) both from Benq.

We compared all the other 30dB noise level data projectors to this projector and we think a higher rated product such as the Benq MX503[plb_1418386_price] are also worth considering.

If you are not concerned about having a louder noise level then you might want to consider the Optoma EW556[plb_1717954_price] (30dB).
