8 Reasons For

Optoma Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

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

Supports Full HD Projection

The Optoma HD240W supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the HD240W do not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other data projectors which support Full HD projection to this projector and we think a cheaper multimedia projector such as the NEC V332W[plb_3205533_price] or you might consider a higher rated multimedia projector such as the Viewsonic PJD7830HDL[plb_3244300_price], and the Optoma HD28DSE[plb_3141654_price] are also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma HD240W has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors that have been available for more than a year.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might also want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Viewsonic PJD7830HDL[plb_3244300_price], or the Optoma HD28DSE[plb_3141654_price].

It is worth also looking at alternative data projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Panasonic PT-VW350[plb_3399887_price].

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for more than a year, the Optoma HD240W supports 3D image projection.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors which support 3D image projection and we think because of it's better review score, the HD28DSE[pl_3141654_price], and the ML1500E[pl_2893558_price] both from Optoma or the Viewsonic PJD5550LWS[plb_2894982_price] is also worth considering.

The Optoma HD240W has a maximum resolution of 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of the most frequently found native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800). Across all data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the HD240W the worst resolution is SVGA (800x600) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

That's over six times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this multimedia projector). In addition, this projector support graphics resolutions of 800 x 600 (SVGA) and 1024 x 768 (XGA) and 1280 x 768 (WXGA). Across all multimedia projectors that were released more than a year ago the worst resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

The noise levels in economy mode of data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the HD240W range from 21dB to 35dB. The Optoma HD240W has one of the quieter noise levels in economy mode (only 26 decibels) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Optoma HD240W does not support WiFi connectivity, although this is within the context that most of the other projectors that have been available for a similar time to the HD240W also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Lamp Power

The smallest lamp power of data projectors of this age and type is 50W and the biggest is 380W. At only 190 Watts, the Optoma HD240W has a quite small lamp power compared to most of the other projectors that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Very Small Uniformity

Across all the multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the HD240W the uniformities range from 80% to 130%, and the average uniformity is 87%. With a uniformity of only 80 percent, the Optoma HD240W has a fairly small uniformity compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the HD240W.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

With a service life of lamp in economic mode of only 6,000 hours, the Optoma HD240W has a fairly short service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the HD240W. Multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the HD240W have service life of lamp in economic mode of between 2,500h and 10,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 6,800h.

3 Other reasons to consider the Optoma HD240W

OK Running Costs

The average running cost of the HD240W is £79 over 1 year based on average energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 60 projectors of this age and spec.

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when Optoma released the HD240W.

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Optoma HD240W has a fairly standard projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age.

We compared this projector to all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think the Optoma HD28DSE[plb_3141654_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
