Optoma Has Good Projector Reviews

We checked the reviews from experts and users of hundreds of multimedia projectors to determine an average rating for each multimedia projector brand. On average Optoma multimedia projectors have good reviews from experts and owners.

Supports 3D

The Optoma W505 supports 3D. Most of the other data projectors of a similar age and spec to the W505 do not support 3D.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative multimedia projectors which support 3D currently available including because of it's better review score, the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price].

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The Optoma W505 does not support full HD. Most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the W505 also do not support full HD.

Alternative projectors which also support full HD that you might want to consider include the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector[plb_3156294_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the W505, the Optoma W505 does not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other 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.
