7 Reasons For

Optoma Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

Optoma data projectors have an average rating of 88%, which is in the top 22% of all projector manufacturers that we have looked at.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma TW766 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years also have a built-in speaker.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Ricoh PJ WX4130[plb_2922469_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The Optoma TW766 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's 20% more resolution than a 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years. 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) is also supported by this projector. This multimedia projector also support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 640 x 480 (VGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) graphics resolution is in fact the best supported resolution across all projectors of a similar type and age to the TW766.

The worst supported resolution across similar types of multimedia projector is 640 x 480 (VGA).

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Optoma TW766 does not support Full HD projection, although it is worth noting that most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago also do not support Full HD projection.

It is worth also looking at alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Sony VPL-DW125[plb_1443008_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other projectors that have been available for more than two years, the Optoma TW766 does not support 3D image projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the Vivitek Qumi Q2[plb_1925642_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years, the Optoma TW766 does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The service life of lamp in economic mode of projectors that were released more than two years ago range from 2,000h to 8,000h. With a service life of lamp in economic mode of only 3,000 hours, the Optoma TW766 has one of the shorter service life of lamp in economic mode amongst similar spec data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Short Lamp Service Life

Across all the 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the TW766 the lamp service lives range from 1,500h to 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 4,700h. With a lamp service life of only 2,000 hours, the Optoma TW766 has one of the shorter lamp service lives amongst 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age.
