16 Reasons For

Optoma Projectors Have Good Reviews

Optoma has good average reviews for its 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors as well as across its entire projector range compared to other manufacturers.

Supports 3D

The Optoma WU515 supports 3D, which is unusual. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released around the same time as the WU515 do not support 3D.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support 3D including the Optoma WU515T.

Supports Full HD

The Optoma WU515 supports full HD, unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the WU515 which do not support full HD.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support full HD which you might want to consider including the Optoma WU515T, or the Sony VPL-FHZ57 ($2,450.00).
