11 Reasons For

Optoma Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

We checked 1,708 owner and expert reviews for Optoma projectors and found that on average Optoma has good ratings compared to other manufacturers. We also found that Optoma has good ratings specifically for its 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Unlike most of the other data projectors of a similar type and age to the EH415e which do not support 3D image projection, the Optoma EH415e supports 3D image projection.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including cheaper projectors such as the Vivitek DH976-WT[plb_3384020_price], or the Optoma W415e[plb_2988032_price].

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection to this multimedia projector and we think the Optoma EH415ST[plb_3015002_price] is also worth considering.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Optoma EH415e supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the EH415e do not support Full HD projection.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including cheaper projectors such as the Vivitek DH976-WT[plb_3384020_price], or the Infocus IN1118HD[plb_3341261_price].

Other data projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might want to consider include the Optoma EH415ST[plb_3015002_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma EH415e has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the EH415e.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Vivitek DH976-WT[plb_3384020_price], or the Optoma W415e[plb_2988032_price].

There are a number of other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might also want to consider including the Optoma EH415ST[plb_3015002_price].

1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution

The Optoma EH415e has a maximum resolution of 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of the most common native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800). Across all 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than a year ago the resolution ranges from WXGA (1280x800) to WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

Data projectors of this type and age have projector brightness of between 2,000 ANSI lumens and 5,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,300 ANSI lumens. At 4,200 ANSI lumens, the Optoma EH415e has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EH415e.

If you are looking for a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the Optoma W415e[plb_2988032_price] (4,500 ANSI lumens and cheaper), or the Vivitek DH976-WT[plb_3384020_price] (4,800 ANSI lumens and cheaper).

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Optoma EH415e is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over four times the resolution of a 800 x 600 (SVGA) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by projectors of this age and spec. The resolution of all 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the EH415e ranges from 800 x 600 (SVGA) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

Most projectors of a similar type and age to the EH415e have between one and two HDMI ports, including the Optoma EH415e which has two HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

Very Long Lamp Service Life

When compared to other similar spec data projectors that have been available for more than a year that we have checked the lamp service life of, the Optoma EH415e's lamp service life of 7,000 hours is one of the longest. 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the EH415e have lamp service lives of between 2,500h and 7,000h.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Lamp Power

With a lamp power of 280 Watts, the Optoma EH415e has a fairly big lamp power compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the EH415e. The smallest lamp power of projectors that were launched around the same time as the EH415e is 170W, the biggest is 310W, and the average lamp power is 220W.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as it.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Optoma EH415e does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the EH415e also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Not Cheap

15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than a year range in price from £239 to £1,305. We think that this 15000:1 contrast ratio projector looks expensive compared to other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than a year.

Very Low Number of Colours

The lowest number of colours of data projectors of this age and type is 1M, the highest is 1,100M, and the average number of colours is 320M. At only 1.07 million, the Optoma EH415e has a fairly low number of colours compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the EH415e.

Chart Edit

Heavy

Data projectors of a similar spec and age to the EH415e have weights of between 1.5kg and 4kg, and the average weight is 2.7kg. At 3.4 kilograms, the Optoma EH415e is fairly heavy compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been around for a similar time to the EH415e.

Chart Edit

Quite High Power Consumption in Economy Mode

With a power consumption in economy mode of 250 Watts, the Optoma EH415e has one of the higher power consumption in economy mode amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age. The lowest power consumption in economy mode of 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the EH415e is 200W and the highest is 300W.
