14 Reasons For
Optoma Has Good Projector Reviews
Optoma has good average reviews for its projectors as well as across its entire data projector range.
Easy to Use
One Optoma H114 reviewer thought it had a good experience. This year Ryan Tech Reviews wrote on Amazon “Based on my experience I believe this projector would be great for first person games as I expect the larger display would be very immersive” in his Optoma H114 review.
One Optoma H114 reviewer who reviewed it reckoned that it was easy to use.
One person who reviewed it said that it had good technical guidance. Ryan Tech Reviews scored the product very highly and he said in his review “The projector comes boxed in a protective sleeve along with a mains adaptor, remote control, quick start guide and an on-disc user manual”.
One Optoma H114 reviewer wrote that this projector was well made. In October this year Ryan Tech Reviews mentioned “The projector has a built in speaker.”.
One Optoma H114 owner mentioned in their reviews that it was lightweight. Ryan Tech Reviews said in October this year “Weighs a little over 2kg making it lightweight and portable” in his review.
Good Remote Control

+9 More reasons for
Good Sound Quality
One Optoma H114 owner who reviewed the Optoma H114 reckoned that it had good sound quality. Ryan Tech Reviews mentioned “I would recommend connecting the audio output up to external speakers” in his review.
Good Picture Quality
One Optoma H114 owner wrote in their reviews that it was good for playing games on. Ryan Tech Reviews mentioned in his review “It is an excellent choice for gaming and I am sure movie watching is just as immersive”.
Supports Full HD Projection
The Optoma H114 supports Full HD projection, unlike most of the other projectors that have been on the market for the last year which do not support Full HD projection.
It may also be worth considering one of the other projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including the Optoma H183X[plb_3381810_price] which has better reviews; or the Infocus SP1080[plb_3696418_price] which is cheaper.
Supports 3D Image Projection
Like most of the other projectors that have been around for around the same time as the H114, the Optoma H114 supports 3D image projection.
Other multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection currently available which you might also want to look at include a cheaper multimedia projector such as the Infocus SP1080[plb_3696418_price], or the Optoma X340[plb_3495228_price] or you might consider a better rated multimedia projector such as the Optoma H183X[plb_3381810_price].
Has a Built-In Speaker
The Optoma H114 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the H114.
We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think a cheaper data projector such as the Infocus SP1080[plb_3696418_price], and the Optoma X340[plb_3495228_price] or you might consider a better rated data projector such as the Optoma H183X[plb_3381810_price] are also worth considering.
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution
The highest resolution supported by the Optoma H114 is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this data projector). In addition, this multimedia projector support graphics resolutions of 800 x 600 (SVGA), 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 1360 x 768 (WXGA) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). Latest projectors graphics resolutions range from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).
With a width of only 298 millimeters, the Optoma H114 is one of the narrower multimedia projectors that have been available for the last year amongst comparable spec projectors of this age. The narrowest multimedia projector that is a similar age to the H114 is 110mm wide and the widest is 590mm.
The weights of recently released projectors range from 2.7g to 28kg. At only 2.2 kilograms, the Optoma H114 is quite light compared to most of the other new projectors.
4 Reasons Against
Poor 3D Picture Quality
One customer who purchased the product reckoned that it did not have a good 3D picture quality. Ryan Tech Reviews wrote on Amazon in October “This projector can also be used for watching television and supports 3D viewing, unfortunately I do not have the necessary equipment to use these features”.
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
The Optoma H114 does not support WiFi connectivity, although keep in mind that most of the other projectors that have been available for a similar time to the H114 also do not support WiFi connectivity.
We compared all the other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this data projector and we think the Sony MP-CL1[plb_3151534_price] which is also cheaper is also worth considering.
Very Low RMS Rated Power
The RMS rated power of projectors that were released around the same time as the H114 range from 1W to 20W. At only 2 Watts, the Optoma H114 has a fairly low RMS rated power compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the H114.
Very Dim Lamp Power in Economic Mode
The dimmest lamp power in economic mode of projectors that have been around for the last year is 61W and the brightest is 30,000W. With a lamp power in economic mode of only 187 Watts, the Optoma H114 has a fairly dim lamp power in economic mode compared to most of the other latest projectors.

Running this projector over 5 years will generate 0.38 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 10 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
