The 95.8WR02GC1E has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the 95.8WR02GC1E.
Supports 3D Image Projection
Like most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the 95.8WR02GC1E, the Optoma 95.8WR02GC1E supports 3D image projection.
Alternative projectors which support 3D image projection currently available that you might want to look at include because of it's better review score, the Sony VPL-HW65ES.
1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution
The 95.8WR02GC1E supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this projector). In addition, this data projector support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA) and 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). The best resolution of all projectors that have been available for around the same time as the 95.8WR02GC1E is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).
Fairly High Number of Colours
With a number of colours of 1,073.4 million, the 95.8WR02GC1E has a fairly high number of colours compared to most of the other projectors that were released more than a year ago. The lowest number of colours of projectors that came out around the same time as the 95.8WR02GC1E is 1M, the highest is 1,100M, and the average number of colours is 940M.

The lowest power consumption in economy mode of similar spec projectors that have been around for more than a year is 85W, the highest is 430W, and the average power consumption in economy mode is 260W. With a power consumption in economy mode of only 191 Watts, the 95.8WR02GC1E has a fairly low power consumption in economy mode compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the 95.8WR02GC1E.
+1 More reason for
6 Reasons Against
Does Not Support Full HD Projection
The Optoma 95.8WR02GC1E does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other projectors that have been available for more than a year also do not support Full HD projection.
We compared all the other projectors which also support Full HD projection to this multimedia projector and we think the VPL-VW320ES, or the VPL-VW350ES both from Sony which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
The 95.8WR02GC1E does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth noting that most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age also do not support WiFi connectivity.
It is worth considering other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Vivitek Qumi Q6 (£306.80) which also has a higher rating.
Quite Small Lamp Power
Projectors of a similar age and spec to the 95.8WR02GC1E have lamp power of between 50W and 380W, and the average lamp power is 240W. The Optoma 95.8WR02GC1E has one of the smaller lamp power (only 190 Watts) amongst data projectors of this age.
Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port
The 95.8WR02GC1E is a one VGA (D-Sub) port projector.
+3 More reasons against
Only One USB 2.0 Port
Most multimedia projectors of this type and age have between one and two USB 2.0 ports, including the 95.8WR02GC1E which has one USB 2.0 port.
Only One HDMI Port
The 95.8WR02GC1E is a one HDMI port projector. Most of the other data projectors that are a comparable age to the 95.8WR02GC1E have one HDMI port.
