10 Reasons For

Good Brand

Optoma projectors have good reviews on average and across all projectors Optoma is one of the better rated manufacturers.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Optoma GT5500 supports Full HD projection, unlike most of the other multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the GT5500 which do not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which support Full HD projection to this projector and we think cheaper data projectors such as the Epson EH-TW6700[plb_3812541_price], and the Benq CH100[plb_3772760_price] is also worth considering.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Epson EH-TW6700W[plb_3812542_price] is also worth considering.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other recently released projectors, the Optoma GT5500 supports 3D image projection.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors which support 3D image projection and we think cheaper projectors such as the Epson EH-TW6700[plb_3812541_price] is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Viewsonic PRO8510L[plb_3737737_price], or the Epson EH-TW6700W[plb_3812542_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma GT5500 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other new projectors.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the Epson EH-TW6700[plb_3812541_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

It is worth also looking at alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the EK-401W[pl_3798176_price], or the EK-400X[pl_3796319_price] both from EIKI.

1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution

This data projector has a native projector resolution of 1080p (1920x1080), which is typical of many latest projectors.

Chart Edit

Two Audio Out Ports

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

Most projectors that have been around for around the same time as the GT5500 have between one and four HDMI ports, including the Optoma GT5500 which has two HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

At 16 Watts, the Optoma GT5500 has a quite high RMS rated power compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for a similar time to the GT5500. Across all the recently released comparable spec multimedia projectors the RMS rated power range from 1W to 20W.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Uniformity

The Optoma GT5500 has a fairly big uniformity (85 percent) compared to most of the other new projectors. Across all the latest similar spec multimedia projectors the uniformities range from 70% to 90%.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Offset

The Optoma GT5500 has one of the bigger offsets (118 percent) amongst similar spec projectors of this age. Similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the GT5500 have offsets of between 11% and 150%, and the average offset is 110%.

Chart Edit

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Optoma GT5500 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other data projectors that came out in the last year also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Only Fixed Zoom Ratio

This multimedia projector supports a Fixed zoom ratio, which is typical of many similar spec multimedia projectors that came out in the last 12 months.

Chart Edit

Very Short Lamp Service Life

With a lamp service life of only 3,000 hours, the Optoma GT5500 has a quite short lamp service life compared to most of the other new projectors. The lamp service lives of projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the GT5500 range from 1,500h to 30,000h.

3 Other reasons to consider the Optoma GT5500

Average Running Costs

Based on average energy prices we estimate that the 1 year running cost of the GT5500 is £100, which is typical compared to the other 64 comparable spec projectors that were released in the last 12 months.

Released Eleven Months Ago

Optoma released the GT5500 eleven months ago.

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,500 ANSI lumens, the Optoma GT5500 has a relatively average projector brightness compared to most of the other recently released projectors.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to consider the EK-401W[pl_3798176_price] (4,600 ANSI lumens), or the EK-400X[pl_3796319_price] (5,500 ANSI lumens) both from EIKI or the Viewsonic PRO8510L[plb_3737737_price] (5,200 ANSI lumens).
