Optoma H180x Review

7 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Low

The average running cost of the H180X is only £79 over 1 year based on typical energy prices and usage levels, which is in the cheapest 20% of all 102 projectors of a comparable spec and age.

Optoma Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

On average Optoma projectors have good ratings compared to other brands as do all projectors produced by Optoma.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma H180X has a built-in speaker. Most of the other data projectors of this spec and age do not have a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Benq W750[plb_1561747_price] which has better reviews; or the Optoma DH1008[plb_2529465_price] which is cheaper.

It is worth considering other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the LG PW700[plb_2778836_price].

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the H180X, the Optoma H180X supports 3D image projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection and we think the Benq W750[plb_1561747_price] which has better reviews; or the Optoma DH1008[plb_2529465_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.

There are a number of other projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might want to consider including the LG PW700[plb_2778836_price].

100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many data projectors of a similar age and spec to it.

Chart Edit

Narrow

With a width of only 286 millimeters, the Optoma H180X is fairly narrow compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the H180X. Projectors that were launched around the same time as the H180X have widths of between 130mm and 750mm, and the average width is 380mm.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The lightest data projector that is a similar age to the H180X is 2.7g heavy and the heaviest is 26kg. At only 2.2 kilograms, the Optoma H180X is fairly light compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar age and type to the H180X.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Optoma H180X does not support Full HD projection, although this is within the context that most of the other projectors that came out more than two years ago also do not support Full HD projection.

It is worth also looking at other projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Optoma DH1008[plb_2529465_price] which is also cheaper.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Optoma H180X does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other data projectors of this age and type also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might also want to consider include the LG PW700[plb_2778836_price].

Very Low RMS Rated Power

At only 2 Watts, the Optoma H180X has a quite low RMS rated power compared to most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the H180X. The RMS rated power of projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the H180X range from 1W to 30W, and the average RMS rated power is 9.6W.

Chart Edit

Only One HDMI Port

The Optoma H180X is a one HDMI port projector. Most of the other similar spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the H180X have between one and three HDMI ports.

It was over three years ago when this projector was released.
