8 Reasons For

Optoma Projectors Have Good Reviews

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

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the EX556, the Optoma EX556 has a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Benq MX522[plb_2029720_price].

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

This projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA)|1280 x 1024 (SXGA)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA)|640 x 480 (VGA)|800 x 600 (SVGA), which is typical of many similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.

Chart Edit

Three HDMI Ports Quantitys

Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the EX556 only have between one and two HDMI ports quantitys, however the Optoma EX556 has three HDMI ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

At only 30 decibels, the Optoma EX556 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EX556. The average noise level of multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago is 33dB, and the noise levels range from 26dB to 40dB.

We compared this projector to all the other 30dB noise level projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq MX503[plb_1418386_price] is also worth considering.

If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Benq MX518[plb_1521707_price] (32dB).

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

Most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the EX556 support 3D, however the Optoma EX556 does not support 3D.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a 3D and we think the Optoma DX346[plb_2212801_price], or the Benq MS619[plb_2024148_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Alternative projectors which also support full HD that you might want to look at include the MS504[pl_2024728_price], or the MX505[pl_2024730_price] both from Benq or the Optoma DH1011[plb_1726991_price] which also has a higher rating.

Quite Low Horizontal Synchronization (max)

The lowest horizontal synchronization (max) of multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the EX556 is 0.1kHz, the highest is 110kHz, and the average horizontal synchronization (max) is 92kHz. At only 91.1 kilohertz, the Optoma EX556 has a fairly low horizontal synchronization (max) compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the EX556.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Vertical Synchronization (max)

The lowest vertical synchronization (max) of comparable spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the EX556 is 0.12kHz, the highest is 480kHz, and the average vertical synchronization (max) is 120kHz. The Optoma EX556 has a fairly low vertical synchronization (max) (only 85 kilohertz) compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the EX556.
