7 Reasons For

Good Brand

We checked 1,708 user and expert reviews for Optoma projectors and found that on average Optoma has good reviews compared to other manufacturers. We also found that Optoma has good reviews specifically for its projectors.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Optoma HD161 supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors of this type and age do not support Full HD projection.

There are a number of other projectors which support Full HD projection currently available that you might also want to consider including the Benq W7000+, or the Optoma HD25 (£799.00) which has better reviews.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma HD161 supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as the HD161.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including the Benq W7000+ which has better reviews.

1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution

This projector has a native projector resolution of 1080p (1920x1080), which is typical of many projectors that were launched around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Optoma HD161 is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) data projector, which is the most common resolution supported by projectors that have been on the market for more than two years. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this projector. In addition, this Optoma projector support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). The best resolution of all projectors that have been around for around the same time as the HD161 is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Offset

The offsets of projectors that were launched more than two years ago range from 0.03% to 140%. The Optoma HD161 has one of the bigger offsets (130 percent) amongst projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Narrow

The widths of projectors that were launched more than two years ago range from 130mm to 750mm. At only 286 millimeters, the Optoma HD161 is quite narrow compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for around the same time as the HD161.

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma HD161 does not have a built-in speaker, although keep in mind that most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the HD161 also do not have a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Acer H7531D.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other projectors that came out more than two years ago, the Optoma HD161 does not support WiFi connectivity.

It is worth also looking at other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the LG PW700 (£413.03), or the Optoma W305ST (£535.65).

Very Small Uniformity

With a uniformity of only 80 percent, the Optoma HD161 has a quite small uniformity compared to most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the HD161. Across all the multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the HD161 the uniformities range from 80% to 130%.
