Optoma Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

On average Optoma 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good reviews compared to other manufacturers as do all projectors built by Optoma.

Reasonably Priced

One customer who purchased the Optoma EW400 concluded that it was good value for money. Expert review site Techworld.com mentioned in their Optoma EW400 review “Clear presentation is an affordable as well as attractive choice for boardrooms” .

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma EW400 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years also support 3D image projection.

Other projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might want to look at include the X401[pl_1995677_price], the ML1500[pl_2473687_price], or the W306[pl_1726310_price] all from Optoma.

Chart Edit

Three USB 2.0 Ports

The Optoma EW400 is a three USB 2.0 port projector. Most of the other data projectors that came out more than two years ago have between one and three USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

At 10 Watts, the Optoma EW400 has a fairly high RMS rated power compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type. Across all the 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the EW400 the RMS rated power range from 2W to 30W.

At only 29 decibels, the Optoma EW400 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the EW400. The quietest noise level of projectors that were launched around the same time as the EW400 is 26dB, the loudest is 40dB, and the average noise level is 33dB.

Chart Edit

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the EW400 do not support Full HD projection. The Optoma EW400 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the X401[pl_1995677_price], the ML1500[pl_2473687_price], or the EH300[pl_1727047_price] all from Optoma is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago, the Optoma EW400 does not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Optoma EX400[plb_2110318_price] which is also cheaper.
