6 Reasons For

Optoma Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

Optoma has good average ratings for its projectors as well as across its entire multimedia projector range.

Supports Full HD

Unlike most of the other projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the HD161X which do not support full HD, the Optoma HD161X supports full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors which support full HD and we think the Benq W7000+ ($1,995.00), and the LG PF80 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Supports 3D

Like most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the HD161X, the Optoma HD161X supports 3D.

It may also be worth considering one of the other projectors which support 3D currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq W7000+ ($1,995.00).

1080p (1920x1080) Projector Native Resolution

This multimedia projector has a projector native resolution of 1080p (1920x1080), which is typical of many projectors of a comparable type and age to it.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the Optoma HD161X is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) data projector, which is the most common resolution supported by projectors that have been around for around the same time as the HD161X. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this projector. This data projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). The worst resolution of all projectors that were released more than two years ago is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Very Big Offset

The offsets of projectors that came out around the same time as the HD161X range from 0.03% to 140%. When compared to other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the HD161X, the Optoma HD161X's offset of 130 percent is one of the biggest.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma HD161X does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the HD161X which have a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Acer H7531D which also has a higher rating.
