10 Reasons For

Good Brand

Projectors manufactured by Optoma have an average rating of 88 out of 100, which is in the top 22% of all projector manufacturers that we have assessed.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma TX785 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other projectors of this age and type do not support 3D image projection.

Alternative projectors which support 3D image projection currently available that you might want to look at include the NEC U310W which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma TX785 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the TX785 also have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Optoma TX785 is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) data projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by multimedia projectors of this type and age. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this projector. In addition, this data projector support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA) and 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the TX785 the worst resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Two Built-In Speakers

The Optoma TX785 is a two built-in speaker multimedia projector.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

At only 31 decibels, the Optoma TX785 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the TX785. 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the TX785 have noise levels of between 28dB and 42dB.

We compared this projector to all the other 31dB noise level projectors and we think the Optoma TW775 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the TX785, the Optoma TX785 does not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also support Full HD projection including the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Optoma TX785 does not support WiFi connectivity, although keep in mind that most of the other data projectors of this type and age also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Epson PowerLite 1761W (£2,499.99), or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro.
