14 Reasons For

Optoma Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

Optoma is one of the better rated data projector brands according to average expert and user reviews, and Optoma also has good reviews for its 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma ML800 supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other projectors of this spec and age.

Alternative multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection currently available that you might also want to consider include a cheaper projector such as the Benq MX842[plb_2417267_price] or you might consider a higher scoring projector such as the Optoma DH1011[plb_1726991_price].

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D image projection to this multimedia projector and we think the Benq MX822ST[plb_1495112_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma ML800 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age.

It may also be worth considering one of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Benq MX842[plb_2417267_price] which is cheaper; or the Optoma DH1011[plb_1726991_price] which has better reviews.

It is worth considering other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Benq MX822ST[plb_1495112_price].

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

This data projector supports a graphics resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA)|1280 x 1024 (SXGA)|1280 x 800 (WXGA)|1400 x 1050 (SXGA+)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA)|640 x 480 (VGA)|800 x 600 (SVGA), which is typical of many 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the Optoma ML800 is WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than a XGA (1024x768) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution.

This data projector's resolution (WXGA (1280x800)) is actually the best resolution amongst all data projectors of a similar spec and age to the ML800.

The worst resolution across comparable types of data projector is SVGA (800x600).

Three USB 2.0 Ports

Most 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago have between one and three USB 2.0 ports, including the Optoma ML800 which has three USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Two Built-In Speakers

The Optoma ML800 is a two built-in speaker multimedia projector.

Chart Edit

Very Long Lamp Service Life

Across all the multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to the ML800 the lamp service lives range from 2,500h to 20,000h, and the average lamp service life is 4,600h. When compared to other similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago, the Optoma ML800's lamp service life of 20,000 hours is one of the longest.

Chart Edit

Quite High Number of Colours

Similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years have numbers of colours of between 1M and 1,100M. The Optoma ML800 has one of the higher numbers of colours (1,070 million) amongst multimedia projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The noise levels of similar spec data projectors that were released around the same time as the ML800 range from 26dB to 40dB, and the average noise level is 32dB. With a noise level of only 30 decibels, the Optoma ML800 has one of the quieter noise levels amongst projectors of this age.

Data projectors with a louder noise level that might also be worth considering include the Optoma DH1011[plb_1726991_price] (26dB) which is also higher rated.

Supports Two Image Formats

The number of supported image formats on the Optoma ML800 is more than most projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to it. This projector supports a BMP image format, which is the most frequently supported image format supported by comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the ML800. The image format "JPG" is also supported by this multimedia projector.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on projectors of a comparable spec and age to it.

Chart Edit

Narrow

The average width of multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years is 300mm, and the widths range from 260mm to 340mm. At only 269 millimeters, the Optoma ML800 is quite narrow compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Light

Across all the comparable spec projectors that came out more than two years ago the weights range from 1.3kg to 5.4kg. The weight of the Optoma ML800 of only 1.4 kilograms is one of the lightest amongst similar spec data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the ML800.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

£161.29 Price Increase

The price of the ML800 increased by £161.29 in the last couple of weeks.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Optoma ML800 does not support Full HD projection, although it is worth noting that most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the ML800 also do not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Optoma DH1011[plb_1726991_price].

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Optoma ML800 does not support WiFi connectivity, although this is within the context that most of the other comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the ML800 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

At only 800 ANSI lumens, the Optoma ML800 has a very dim projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age. The average projector brightness of data projectors that were released more than two years ago is 3,000 ANSI lumens.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to consider the Benq MX842[plb_2417267_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens) which is also cheaper.

Quite Small Offset

The offset of the Optoma ML800 of only 105 percent is one of the smallest amongst projectors of a similar age and type to the ML800. The offsets of 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago range from 100% to 160%.

Chart Edit

Pricey

The cheapeast 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years that we found costs £247 and the most expensive costs £1,002. We think that this multimedia projector looks expensive for a data projector of this age and type.
