Optoma 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good ratings on average and across all projectors Optoma is one of the better rated manufacturers.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma W515 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the W515 also support 3D image projection.

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of projectors of this type and age is 600 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 12,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,700 ANSI lumens.
