8 Reasons For

Very Low Running Costs

The average 1 year running cost of the HD6720 is only £82 based on average usage levels and energy prices, which makes it one of the most economic to run data projectors of a comparable age and spec.

Optoma Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

Multimedia projectors built by Optoma generally have good ratings compared to other brands.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma HD6720 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other similar spec data projectors that came out more than two years ago do not support 3D image projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors which support 3D image projection and we think the NEC L51W[plb_1496151_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
