13 Reasons For

Good Brand

10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors produced by Optoma have good ratings on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors) and found that Optoma also has good ratings across its entire range.

Supports 3D

Unlike most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the W515 which do not support 3D, the Optoma W515 supports 3D.

We compared all the other projectors which support 3D to this projector and we think the Epson Home Cinema 600[plb_3077179_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

At 6,000 ANSI lumens, the Optoma W515 has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the W515. The projector brightnesss of comparable spec projectors that have been around for a similar time to the W515 range from 600 ANSI lumens to 12,000 ANSI lumens.

If you would prefer a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the PT-DW830E[pl_3897896_price] (8,500 ANSI lumens), or the PT-DX100[pl_3897897_price] (10,000 ANSI lumens) both from Panasonic.
