12 Reasons For

Optoma Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

Data projectors produced by Optoma generally have good reviews compared to other brands.

Supports 3D

The Optoma EX855 supports 3D, unlike most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the EX855 which do not support 3D.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors which support 3D currently available including because of it's better review score, the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price].

Supports Full HD

The Optoma EX855 supports full HD, unlike most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the EX855 which do not support full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which support full HD to this projector and we think the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector[plb_3156294_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma EX855 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other data projectors of this age and type also have a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

The Optoma EX855 has a quite bright projector brightness (5,500 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the EX855. The dimmest projector brightness of 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the EX855 is 110 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 10,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,100 ANSI lumens.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the Optoma EX855 is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of the most frequently found supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA). 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).

This multimedia projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is actually the best supported resolution amongst all projectors of a similar age and type to the EX855.

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

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The Optoma EX855 has a quite quiet noise level (only 34 decibels) compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the EX855. The quietest noise level of data projectors of this type and age is 28dB, the loudest is 42dB, and the average noise level is 36dB.

Chart Edit

Very Big Bulb Power

At 4,000 Watts, the Optoma EX855 has a very big bulb power compared to most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the EX855. Across all the 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the EX855 the bulb powers range from 170W to 4,000W, and the average bulb power is 320W.

Chart Edit

Three Component Video (YPbPr/YCbCr) Ins

The Optoma EX855 has more component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) ins than most of the multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the EX855. Most of the comparable spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the EX855 only have between one and two component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) ins, however this data projector has three component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) ins.

Chart Edit

Very Big Uniformity

With a uniformity of 95 percent, the Optoma EX855's uniformity is one of the biggest amongst projectors of this spec and age. The uniformitys of 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago range from 78% to 95%, and the average uniformity is 86%.

Chart Edit

Three Audio (L,R) Ins

The Optoma EX855 is a three audio (L,R) in projector. Most of the other projectors of this age and spec only have between one and two audio (L,R) ins.

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on projectors of a similar age and spec to it.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other projectors of this spec and age, the Optoma EX855 does not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi to this projector and we think the Epson PowerLite 1761W[plb_1735741_price], or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro[plb_1759924_price] is also worth considering.

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The average service life of lamp (economic mode) of multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to the EX855 is 4,100h, and the service life of lamp (economic mode)s range from 2,500h to 10,000h. When compared to other projectors that came out around the same time as the EX855 that we have assessed, the service life of lamp (economic mode) of the Optoma EX855 of only 2,500 hours is one of the shortest.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp

Across all the data projectors of a similar age and spec to the EX855 the service life of lamps range from 200h to 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 5,200h. At only 2,000 hours, the Optoma EX855 has a quite short service life of lamp compared to most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the EX855.
