Optoma Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

Optoma is one of the better rated multimedia projector brands according to average user and expert review score data that we have collected for all multimedia projectors.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma EW865 supports 3D image projection, which is unusual. Most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the EW865 do not support 3D image projection.

There are a number of other data projectors which support 3D image projection currently available that you might want to consider including because of it's better review score, the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price].

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Optoma EW865 is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA). This data projector also support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

This projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is actually the best supported resolution amongst all data projectors that have been around for more than two years.

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

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Optoma EW865 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the EW865 also do not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support Full HD projection to this data projector and we think the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector[plb_3156294_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most projectors of this age and type do not support WiFi connectivity. The Optoma EW865 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might also want to consider including the Epson PowerLite 1761W[plb_1735741_price], or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro[plb_1759924_price] which also has a higher rating.
