13 Reasons For
On average data projectors made by Optoma are rated 88%, which is in the top 22% of all data projector brands that we have looked at.
Supports 3D Image Projection
The Optoma DH1009 supports 3D image projection, unlike most of the other similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the DH1009 which do not support 3D image projection.
Supports Full HD Projection
The Optoma DH1009 supports Full HD projection, unlike most of the other battery powered projectors that were launched around the same time as the DH1009 which do not support Full HD projection.
Has a Built-In Speaker
Like most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the DH1009, the Optoma DH1009 has a built-in speaker.
We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker to this data projector and we think the Philips PPX3610[plb_1565992_price] which has better reviews; or the Philips PPX3407[plb_1572011_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.
1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution
The highest resolution of the Optoma DH1009 is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of the most common native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800). The worst resolution of all multimedia projectors of this age and type is VGA (640x480) and the best is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).
1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution
The highest resolution supported by the Optoma DH1009 is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's 20% more resolution than the most frequently found graphics resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) (which is also supported by this Optoma projector). This projector also support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080) and 640 x 480 (VGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the DH1009 the resolution ranges from 640 x 400 to 4096 x 2160.
+8 More reasons for
Very Bright Projector Brightness
The projector brightness of the Optoma DH1009 of 3,200 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest amongst data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the DH1009. The dimmest projector brightness of projectors that were released more than two years ago is 20 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 5,500 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 460 ANSI lumens.
Very Big Matrix Size
The smallest matrix size of multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the DH1009 is 0.3", the biggest is 0.65", and the average matrix size is 0.46". When compared to other multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the DH1009 that we have assessed, the matrix size of the Optoma DH1009 of 0.65 inches is one of the biggest.
Two HDMI Ports
The Optoma DH1009 is a two HDMI port multimedia projector. Most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the DH1009 only have one HDMI port.
Very High Number of Colours
The average number of colours of battery powered projectors that have been available for more than two years is 540M. When compared to other battery powered projectors that were released more than two years ago that we have checked, the Optoma DH1009's number of colours of 1,070 million is one of the highest.
1920 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Digital Resolution
This data projector has a maximum digital resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels, which is the most commonly found maximum digital resolution on comparable spec projectors that have been around for a similar time to it.
Fairly Big Offset
At 116 percent, the Optoma DH1009 has a fairly big offset compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the DH1009. The smallest offset of multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago is 50%, the biggest is 130%, and the average offset is 77%.
Very High RMS Rated Power
Comparable spec data projectors that have been around for more than two years have RMS rated power of between 0.3W and 10W. With an RMS rated power of 10 Watts, the Optoma DH1009 has a very high RMS rated power compared to most of the other battery powered projectors that were released more than two years ago.
7 Reasons Against
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
The Optoma DH1009 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the DH1009 also do not support WiFi connectivity.
Other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might also want to consider include the Philips PPX3610[plb_1565992_price] which is also higher rated.
We think this battery powered projector looks expensive compared to other projectors of a similar type and age. The cheapeast projector of a similar age and type that we found costs £164 and the most expensive costs £450.
Very High Running Costs
The DH1009 is in the most expensive 12% of all 17 similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years that we have assessed for running costs. Based on typical energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the DH1009 will cost £79 over 1 year to run.
The Optoma DH1009 is fairly heavy (2.5 kilograms) compared to most of the other battery powered projectors that came out around the same time as the DH1009. The weights of battery powered projectors that were launched around the same time as the DH1009 range from 0.045g to 9.7kg, and the average weight is 700g.
+4 More reasons against
Very Small Uniformity
The Optoma DH1009 has one of the smaller uniformities (only 80 percent) amongst data projectors of this age. The average uniformity of similar spec projectors that have been on the market for more than two years is 86%.
Only One USB 2.0 Port
The Optoma DH1009 is a one USB 2.0 port projector.
Very Short Lamp Service Life
At only 5,000 hours, the Optoma DH1009 has a fairly short lamp service life compared to most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as the DH1009. The shortest lamp service life of multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the DH1009 is 20h and the longest is 30,000h.
