17 Reasons For

Optoma Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

On average Optoma 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good reviews compared to other brands as do all projectors produced by Optoma.

Good Size

One person said in their reviews that the product was lightweight. Pcmag.com said on PC Mag “The Optoma TW762 ($1,100 street) would be a fairly typical lightweight projector” in their review.

Good Product Quality

One person wrote in their reviews that it was good quality. Five years ago Pc Mag wrote on PC Mag “Although data image quality is certainly acceptable” in their Optoma TW762 review but even so they only scored the product 3 stars.

Good Picture Quality

One Optoma TW762 owner considered that the Optoma TW762 had good picture quality.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma TW762 supports 3D image projection, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the TW762 do not support 3D image projection.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection and we think because of it's better review score, the Infocus IN3124, the Acer P1340, and the NEC NP-M311W is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the TW762, the Optoma TW762 has a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Benq SH960, the NEC V311, or the Epson EB-430 LW which has better reviews.

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of projectors that have been around for more than two years is 3,500 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 4,000 ANSI lumens, the Optoma TW762 has one of the brighter projector brightness amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Other 4,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available that you might want to consider include because of it's better review score, the CP-WX4022 (£686.00), or the CPWX4022WN (£820.17) both from Hitachi or the Optoma TX762.

If this 3000:1 contrast ratio projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the LG BC775 (5,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the Hitachi CP-WU8460 (6,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Optoma TW762 is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's 8% more resolution than the most common graphics resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) (which is also supported by this projector). In addition, this multimedia projector support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 640 x 480 (VGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). The worst resolution of all 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the TW762 is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This data projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Matrix Size

The Optoma TW762 has a fairly big matrix size (0.65 inches) compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the TW762. The average matrix size of similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the TW762 is 0.61".

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Optoma TW762 is a three VGA (D-Sub) port data projector.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

Across all the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the TW762 the noise levels range from 26dB to 45dB. At only 31 decibels, the Optoma TW762 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the TW762.

We compared all the other 31dB noise level projectors to this multimedia projector and we think because of it's better review score, the TX762, the TX615, and the TW610STi all from Optoma is also worth considering.

Two HDMI Ports

The Optoma TW762 has more HDMI ports than most of the projectors of a comparable age and spec to the TW762. This projector is a two HDMI port projector compared to most of the data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the TW762 which only have one HDMI port.

Chart Edit

Quite High Number of Colours

With a number of colours of 1,070 million, the Optoma TW762 has one of the higher numbers of colours amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age. 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the TW762 have numbers of colours of between 1M and 1,100M.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Poor

This projector received a rating of 60 out of 100 from expert review site PC Mag. This puts this data projector in the bottom 24% of all the data projectors of a comparable age and type when ranked by average expert review score.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Optoma TW762 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the TW762 also do not support Full HD projection.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Benq SH960, the Epson 475Wi (£1,632.80), or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the TW762, the Optoma TW762 does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the EB-430 LW, or the EB-1400 both from Epson or the NEC NP-UM330 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
