14 Reasons For

Two Industry Awards

The reviewers at two expert review sites both concluded that they would endorse this Optoma data projector. This projector received a "Recommended" award from both Homecinemachoice.com and Digitallife.se.

Good Expert Reviews

This Optoma projector has an average expert rating of 80% based on four expert reviews from sites including PC Advisor.co.uk, homecinemachoice.com, hifitest.de and digitallife.se.

Optoma Has Good Multimedia Projector Reviews

On average Optoma projectors have good reviews as do all projectors built by Optoma.

Reasonably Priced

A number of Optoma HD30 owners who purchased it mentioned that it was good value for money. Expert review site Techworld.com wrote “The Optoma HD30 is a sub-£1k 1080p projector that delivers an astonishing picture for the price”. Techworld.com also said “The HD30 should be considered fine value for money if you want a full-HD model that punches visually above its weight”. Techworld.com also said “Dynamics is terrific for the price”.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Optoma HD30 supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the HD30 do not support Full HD projection.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support Full HD projection and we think the Epson EH-TW5910[plb_1717178_price] which is cheaper; or the Optoma HD50[plb_2578841_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Unlike most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the HD30 which do not have a built-in speaker, the Optoma HD30 has a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think cheaper data projectors such as the Epson EH-TW5910[plb_1717178_price] is also worth considering.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma HD30 supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the HD30.

Other projectors which support 3D image projection currently available which you might also want to look at include the Epson EH-TW5910[plb_1717178_price] which is cheaper; or the Optoma HD50[plb_2578841_price] which has better reviews.

Chart Edit

Chart Edit

Chart Edit
