16 Reasons For

Good Brand

We calculated the average reviews for all Optoma multimedia projectors and also specifically for Optoma 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors and found that in both cases Optoma had good reviews.

Good Size

One person said in their reviews that the product was lightweight. Pcmag.com said on PC Mag “The Optoma TW762 ($1,100 street) would be a fairly typical lightweight projector” in their review.

Good Product Quality

One person wrote in their reviews that it was good quality. Five years ago Pc Mag wrote on PC Mag “Although data image quality is certainly acceptable” in their Optoma TW762 review but even so they only scored the product 3 stars.

Good Picture Quality

One Optoma TW762 owner considered that the Optoma TW762 had good picture quality.

Supports 3D

The Optoma TW762 supports 3D, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the TW762 do not support 3D.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other data projectors which support 3D currently available including because of it's better review score, the NP-M311W[pl_1525270_price], or the NP-V311X[pl_1617184_price] both from NEC or the Infocus IN3124[plb_1475112_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma TW762 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the TW762.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq SH960[plb_1385329_price], the Panasonic PT-VW340[plb_2130350_price], and the Hitachi CP-WU8450[plb_1857318_price] is also worth considering.

There are a number of other 4,000 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available which you might also want to look at including because of it's better review score, the CP-WX4022[pl_1887899_price], or the CP-X4015WN[pl_1829126_price] both from Hitachi or the Optoma TX762[plb_1922649_price].

If you are looking for a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the LG BC775[plb_2139004_price] (5,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the Hitachi CP-WU8460[plb_2062083_price] (6,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
