13 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

The EH331 is in the cheapest 18% of all 64 latest multimedia projectors that we have looked at for 1 year running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the EH331 is only £76.

Good Brand

Optoma projectors have good reviews on average and across all projectors Optoma is one of the better rated brands.

Only Released Five Months Ago

The EH331 was only relased by Optoma five months ago. Newer multimedia projectors like this one are likely to have more advanced features.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Optoma EH331 supports Full HD projection. Most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as the EH331 do not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including the Benq 9H.JED77.23E[plb_3766900_price], or the Viewsonic Pro7827HD[plb_3305117_price] which is cheaper; or the Acer Predator Z650[plb_3696444_price] which has better reviews.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma EH331 supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other projectors that have been around for the last year.

It may also be worth considering one of the other multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including cheaper data projectors such as the Benq 9H.JED77.23E[plb_3766900_price], or the Viewsonic PJD7831HDL[plb_3755325_price].

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D image projection to this data projector and we think the Viewsonic PJD7525W[plb_3753194_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma EH331 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors that have been around for around the same time as the EH331.

Alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might also want to look at include the Benq 9H.JED77.23E[plb_3766900_price] which is cheaper; or the Acer Predator Z650[plb_3696444_price] which has better reviews.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker which you might also want to consider including the Viewsonic PJD7525W[plb_3753194_price].
