Optoma has good average reviews for its data projectors as well as across its entire multimedia projector range compared to other brands.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support full HD and we think because of it's better review score, the W7000+[pl_1403580_price], and the W7500[pl_1995206_price] both from Benq or the Optoma HD30[plb_1915718_price] is also worth considering.

Supports 3D

Like most of the other data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the HD161, the Optoma HD161 supports 3D.

Other projectors which support 3D currently available that you might also want to look at include the PowerLite Home Cinema 5030ub[pl_2301495_price], or the PowerLite Pro G6900WU[pl_1919039_price] both from Epson or the Benq W7000+[plb_1403580_price] which has better reviews.

1080p (1920x1080) Projector Native Resolution

This multimedia projector has a projector native resolution of 1080p (1920x1080), which is the most frequently found projector native resolution on projectors of a similar age and type to it.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the Optoma HD161 is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this multimedia projector. This data projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Data projectors that are a similar age to the HD161 supported graphics resolutionss range from 640 x 480 (VGA) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Fairly Big Offset

Across all the data projectors of a similar age and spec to the HD161 the offsets range from 0.03% to 140%. The Optoma HD161 has one of the bigger offsets (130 percent) amongst data projectors of this age.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma HD161 does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the HD161 which have a built-in speaker(s).

It is worth considering other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Acer H7531D[plb_1418806_price], or the Epson PowerLite 98[plb_2397986_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most projectors of this type and age do not support wi-Fi. The Optoma HD161 is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Benq GP20[plb_2231335_price] which also has a higher rating.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Across all the data projectors of this age and spec the projector brightnesss range from 300 ANSI lumens to 9,200 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 2,900 ANSI lumens. At only 2,000 ANSI lumens, the Optoma HD161 has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 2,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq W7000+[plb_1403580_price], or the Panasonic PTAE7000U[plb_1897671_price].

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the Optoma W311[plb_3054527_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.

Very Short Service Life of Lamp

With a service life of lamp of only 3,000 hours, the Optoma HD161 has one of the shorter service life of lamps amongst data projectors of this age. The service life of lamps of similar spec multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the HD161 range from 1,500h to 30,000h.

2 Other reasons to consider the Optoma HD161

Released Over Two Years Ago

Optoma released the HD161 over two years ago.

Average Noise Level

The Optoma HD161 has a fairly typical noise level (29 decibels) compared to most of the other data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

We compared all the other 29dB noise level multimedia projectors to this projector and we think the HD50[pl_2578841_price], and the X305[pl_1726305_price] both from Optoma which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Alternative projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Optoma W305ST[plb_1726307_price] (29dB).
