14 Reasons For

Optoma Projectors Have Good Reviews

On average Optoma 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good reviews as do all projectors built by Optoma.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma EH515 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the EH515 also support 3D image projection.

There are a number of alternative projectors which support 3D image projection currently available which you might also want to look at including cheaper projectors such as the NEC U321H[plb_3095041_price].

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Optoma EH515T[plb_3108718_price].

Supports Full HD Projection

The Optoma EH515 supports Full HD projection. Most of the other multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the EH515 also support Full HD projection.

Other multimedia projectors which support Full HD projection currently available that you might want to consider include the NEC U321H[plb_3095041_price] which is cheaper.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Optoma EH515T[plb_3108718_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma EH515 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors of this spec and age.

It may also be worth considering one of the other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Epson EB-1430Wi[plb_2369726_price], or the NEC U321H[plb_3095041_price] which is cheaper.
