Price Has Dropped by £50.00
The price of the H183X dropped by £50.00 in the last month.
Supports Full HD Projection
Unlike most of the other latest comparable spec data projectors which do not support Full HD projection, the Optoma H183X supports Full HD projection.
We compared all the other data projectors which also support Full HD projection to this projector and we think the Infocus SP1080[plb_3696418_price], or the Optoma H114[plb_3404096_price] is also worth considering.
+8 More reasons for
Supports 3D Image Projection
The Optoma H183X supports 3D image projection. Most of the other recently released projectors also support 3D image projection.
We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection including the X340[pl_3495228_price], or the H114[pl_3404096_price] both from Optoma or the Infocus SP1080[plb_3696418_price].
Has a Built-In Speaker
Like most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the H183X, the Optoma H183X has a built-in speaker.
There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might want to look at including the X340[pl_3495228_price], or the H114[pl_3404096_price] both from Optoma or the Infocus SP1080[plb_3696418_price].
1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution
The Optoma H183X supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by recently released similar spec projectors. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this data projector. This Optoma projector also support graphics resolutions of 800 x 600 (SVGA) and 1024 x 768 (XGA) and 1280 x 1024 (SXGA). Across all projectors that have been available for a similar time to the H183X the worst resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).
Two Built-In Speakers
Most of the other comparable spec projectors that were launched in the last year only have one built-in speaker, however the Optoma H183X has two built-in speakers.
Quite Quiet Noise Level
The average noise level of projectors that have been available for the last year is 33dB, and the noise levels range from 22dB to 40dB. At only 29 decibels, the Optoma H183X has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other latest projectors.
Supports Three Video Colour Modes
The number of video colour modes supported by the Optoma H183X is more than most data projectors that have been around for around the same time as it. This multimedia projector supports a Cinema video colour mode, which is the most commonly supported video colour mode supported by projectors that have been on the market for the last year. The video colour modes "Game" and "Natural" are also supported by this projector.
The Optoma H183X is quite light (only 2.2 kilograms) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the H183X. Across all the projectors that have been around for around the same time as the H183X the weights range from 2.7g to 28kg, and the average weight is 6.3kg.
4 Reasons Against
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
Like most of the other recently released projectors, the Optoma H183X does not support WiFi connectivity.
It is worth also looking at alternative multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Sony MP-CL1[plb_3151534_price].
Quite Small Uniformity
The average uniformity of similar spec projectors that were released in the last year is 79%. At only 75 percent, the Optoma H183X has a quite small uniformity compared to most of the other new comparable spec multimedia projectors.
Very Small Lamp Power
At only 195 Watts, the Optoma H183X has a fairly small lamp power compared to most of the other projectors that came out in the last year. Across all the comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the H183X the lamp power range from 190W to 470W.
Very Low RMS Rated Power
With an RMS rated power of only 2 Watts, the Optoma H183X has one of the lower RMS rated power amongst projectors of this age. The lowest RMS rated power of projectors that have been available for the last year is 1W, the highest is 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 8.1W.
+1 More reason against
3 Other reasons to consider the Optoma H183X
Released Nine Months Ago
This multimedia projector was released nine months ago.
Average Projector Brightness
With a projector brightness of 3,200 ANSI lumens, the Optoma H183X has a fairly average projector brightness compared to most of the other new data projectors.
If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the Optoma H114[plb_3404096_price] (3,400 ANSI lumens), or the Infocus SP1080[plb_3696418_price] (3,500 ANSI lumens).
720p (1280x720) Native Projector Resolution
The highest resolution of the Optoma H183X is 720p (1280x720). That's 56% less resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

Total running cost over 5 years
Running costs for this projector have been estimated based on other similar projectors. If you know how much electricity and water the Optoma H183Xuses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this projector over 5 years will generate 0.37 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 10 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
