8 Reasons For

Good Brand

On average Optoma 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good ratings compared to other brands as do all projectors produced by Optoma.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Unlike most of the other projectors that have been around for more than two years which do not support 3D image projection, the Optoma EX631 supports 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma EX631 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EX631.

Chart Edit

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Optoma EX631 is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) data projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the EX631. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this data projector. In addition, this projector support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA) and 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). The best resolution of all 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EX631 is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years have projector brightness of between 300 ANSI lumens and 12,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,300 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 3,500 ANSI lumens, the Optoma EX631 has one of the brighter projector brightness amongst multimedia projectors of this age.

There are a number of other 3,500 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available that you might want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Panasonic PT-RZ370[plb_1844616_price].

Multimedia projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth considering include the NEC M362[plb_2268470_price] (3,600 ANSI lumens).

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Optoma EX631 is a three VGA (D-Sub) port data projector. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Very Light

With a weight of only 2.2 kilograms, the Optoma EX631 is fairly light compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age. Across all the projectors of this spec and age the weights range from 360g to 54kg.

Chart Edit

Narrow

At only 280 millimeters, the Optoma EX631 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years. Comparable spec data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the EX631 have widths of between 100mm and 970mm.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most projectors of a similar age and spec to the EX631 do not support Full HD projection. The Optoma EX631 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

It is worth also looking at alternative data projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Epson 1975W[plb_3009713_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most projectors of a similar type and age to the EX631 do not support WiFi connectivity. The Optoma EX631 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the Benq W1500[plb_1561671_price], or the Epson PowerLite 1222[plb_2225031_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Quite Short Lamp Service Life

The Optoma EX631 has a fairly short lamp service life (only 3,500 hours) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the EX631. The shortest lamp service life of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago is 500h and the longest is 30,000h.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Matrix Size

The Optoma EX631 has one of the smaller matrix sizes (only 0.55 inches) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. Projectors of a comparable age and type to the EX631 have matrix sizes of between 0.45" and 0.96", and the average matrix size is 0.62".
