9 Reasons For

Optoma Has Good Reviews for Its Data Projectors

13000:1 contrast ratio projectors built by Optoma have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors) and found that Optoma also has good reviews across its entire range.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma ES556 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age also support 3D image projection.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq MS619[plb_2024148_price].

This data projector supports a graphics resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA)|800 x 600 (SVGA), which is the most commonly supported graphics resolution on multimedia projectors of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Optoma ES556 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the data projectors of this age and type. Most of the projectors of this spec and age only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, however this projector has three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

Multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the ES556 have service life of lamp in economic mode of between 3,000h and 10,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 6,100h. With a service life of lamp in economic mode of 6,500 hours, the Optoma ES556 has one of the longer service life of lamp in economic mode amongst 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many projectors of a comparable spec and age to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Power Consumption in Economy Mode

Across all the projectors of this age and spec the power consumption in economy mode range from 0.31W to 340W, and the average power consumption in economy mode is 210W. With a power consumption in economy mode of only 200 Watts, the Optoma ES556 has one of the lower power consumption in economy mode amongst 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most projectors of this age and spec do not support Full HD projection. The Optoma ES556 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

Released Over Four Years Ago

This projector was released over four years ago.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Optoma ES556 has a pretty typical projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the ES556.
