Optoma EH505 Projector Introduction

8 Reasons For

Optoma Has Good Data Projector Reviews

Projectors built by Optoma are some of the better projectors according to average reviews from experts and users.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Unlike most of the other projectors of this age and type which do not support 3D image projection, the Optoma EH505 supports 3D image projection.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative data projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including because of it's better review score, the NEC U310W.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Optoma EH505 supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EH505 do not support Full HD projection.

There are a number of other projectors which support Full HD projection currently available that you might want to look at including because of it's better review score, the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma EH505 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago also have a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Casio XJ-A246 which has better reviews.

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The Optoma EH505 has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a XGA (1024x768) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

A WUXGA (1920x1200) native projector resolution is in fact the best resolution across all 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

An XGA (1024x768) native projector resolution is the worst resolution amongst comparable types of multimedia projector.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Optoma EH505 is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by projectors of this type and age.

This multimedia projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is in fact the best supported resolution amongst all projectors of a comparable age and type to the EH505.

Amongst comparable types of multimedia projector the worst supported resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Quite Big Lamp Power

Projectors that are a similar age to the EH505 have lamp power of between 170W and 4,000W, and the average lamp power is 320W. With a lamp power of 400 Watts, the Optoma EH505's lamp power is one of the biggest amongst projectors of this age and type.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many comparable spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the EH505, the Optoma EH505 does not support WiFi connectivity.

There are a number of other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity which you might want to look at including the Epson PowerLite 1761W (£2,499.99), or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro which is also higher rated.

Very Short Lamp Service Life

The Optoma EH505 has a quite short lamp service life (only 1,500 hour) compared to most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the EH505. Multimedia projectors of this age and spec have lamp service lives of between 200h and 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 5,200h.

Chart Edit

Very Low Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

The Optoma EH505 has one of the lower maximum horizontal synchronization (only 91 kilohertz) amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. The lowest maximum horizontal synchronization of similar spec projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the EH505 is 91kHz and the highest is 110kHz.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Port

Most 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the EH505 have between one and two USB 2.0 ports, including the Optoma EH505 which has one USB 2.0 port.

Chart Edit

Heavy

With a weight of 8.6 kilograms, the Optoma EH505 is one of the heavier projectors of a comparable age and type to the EH505 amongst similar spec projectors of this age. The lightest 2000:1 contrast ratio projector that was launched more than two years ago is 370g heavy and the heaviest is 23kg.

Chart Edit

Very Loud Noise Level in Economy Mode

With a noise level in economy mode of 37 decibels, the Optoma EH505 has a very loud noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the EH505. The noise levels in economy mode of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the EH505 range from 26dB to 37dB.

3 Other reasons to consider the Optoma EH505

OK Running Costs

The average 1 year running cost of the EH505 is £152 based on average energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 86 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

Released Over Two Years Ago

This projector was released over two years ago.

Average Projector Brightness

The Optoma EH505 has a pretty typical projector brightness (5,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the EH505.

We compared all the other 5,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this multimedia projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Panasonic PT-EW540 is also worth considering.
