13 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Very Low

The FX5200 is one of the most economic to run multimedia projectors of a similar type and age that we have looked at for 1 year running costs. Based on typical energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the FX5200 is only £96.

Optoma Has Good Data Projector Reviews

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

Good Picture Quality

One Optoma FX5200 owner wrote in their reviews that it had good picture quality. Mr M T Hall said on Amazon “Gforce Graphic Card give excellent graphics to games etci gave this product 5 stars”.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma FX5200 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years also support 3D image projection.

Other projectors which support 3D image projection currently available which you might also want to consider include cheaper projectors such as the Infocus IN3134a[plb_2544144_price].

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Infocus IN3136a[plb_2544145_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma FX5200 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the FX5200.

There are a number of other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might also want to look at including cheaper data projectors such as the Infocus IN3134a[plb_2544144_price].

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Infocus IN3136a[plb_2544145_price] is also worth considering.
