9 Reasons For
Optoma Has Good Projector Reviews
Based on 1,703 user and expert reviews, Optoma has good reviews for its projectors. Optoma also has good reviews specifically for its multimedia projectors compared to other brands.
Supports 3D Image Projection
The Optoma X402 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other similar spec projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the X402 also support 3D image projection.
Other multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection currently available which you might want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Viewsonic PJD5550LWS (£528.00), the Vivitek Q7 Plus (£596.62), or the Optoma ML1500E (£449.97).
Has a Built-In Speaker
Like most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the X402, the Optoma X402 has a built-in speaker.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the NEC V332W (£488.40) which is cheaper; or the Viewsonic PJD5550LWS (£528.00), or the Vivitek Q7 Plus (£596.62) which has a better Rating.
Fairly Bright Projector Brightness
The average projector brightness of comparable spec data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the X402 is 3,300 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightness range from 500 ANSI lumens to 9,200 ANSI lumens. The Optoma X402 has one of the brighter projector brightness (4,200 ANSI lumens) amongst multimedia projectors of this age.
1280 X 1024 (SXGA) Graphics Resolution
The Optoma X402 supports a maximum resolution of 1280 x 1024 (SXGA). That's over four times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) data projector, which is the most common resolution supported by data projectors of this type and age. Projectors of this age and spec graphics resolutions range from 640 x 480 (VGA) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).
Multimedia projectors with a higher resolution that might be worth considering include the DH1009 (£438.80) (1024 x 768 (XGA and cheaper)|1280 x 1024 (SXGA and cheaper)|1280 x 800 (WXGA and cheaper)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA and cheaper)|640 x 480 (VGA and cheaper)|800 x 600 (SVGA and cheaper) and cheaper), or the DH1008 (£399.99) (1024 x 768 (XGA and cheaper)|1280 x 1024 (SXGA and cheaper)|1280 x 768 (WXGA and cheaper)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA and cheaper)|640 x 480 (VGA and cheaper)|800 x 600 (SVGA and cheaper) and cheaper) both from Optoma; or the Optoma X351 (£454.40) (1024 x 768 (XGA and higher rated)|1280 x 1024 (SXGA and higher rated)|1400 x 1050 (SXGA+ and higher rated)|1440 x 900 (WXGA+ and higher rated)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA and higher rated)|1920 x 1200 (WUXGA and higher rated)|640 x 480 (VGA and higher rated)|800 x 600 (SVGA and higher rated) and higher rated).
Fairly High Number of Colours
The Optoma X402 has one of the higher numbers of colours (1,073.4 million) amongst multimedia projectors of this age. The lowest number of colours of similar spec projectors that were launched more than a year ago is 1M, the highest is 1,100M, and the average number of colours is 960M.
+4 More reasons for
Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports
The Optoma X402 is a three VGA (D-Sub) port multimedia projector. Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the X402 have between 1 and 11 VGA (D-Sub) ports.
Fairly Long Lamp Service Life
Across all the multimedia projectors that have been available for more than a year the lamp service lives range from 2,000h to 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 7,300h. At 7,000 hours, the Optoma X402 has a fairly long lamp service life compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the X402.
1.2:1 Zoom Ratio
The Optoma X402 supports a maximum zoom ratio of 1.2:1. That's 9% more zoom ratio than a 1.1:1 data projector, which is the most common zoom ratio supported by projectors that came out more than a year ago. Across all similar spec multimedia projectors that were released one year ago the zoom ratio ranges from Fixed to 1.8:1.
6 Reasons Against
Price Increase of £25.33
The price of the X402 has increased by £25.33 in the last 54 days.
Does Not Support Full HD Projection
The Optoma X402 does not support Full HD projection, although this is within the context that most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the X402 also do not support Full HD projection.
We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the NEC V332W (£488.40); or the Infocus IN119HD (£435.92) are also worth considering.
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
The Optoma X402 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other data projectors of this age and type also do not support WiFi connectivity.
It is worth also looking at other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Benq GP30 (£570.39).
Quite Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode
The service life of lamp in economic mode of multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the X402 range from 3,000h to 30,000h. When compared to other multimedia projectors of this spec and age, the service life of lamp in economic mode of the Optoma X402 of only 3,000 hours is one of the shortest.
+3 More reasons against
Very Small Uniformity
At only 80 percent, the Optoma X402 has a quite small uniformity compared to most of the other data projectors of this spec and age. The average uniformity of multimedia projectors of this age and type is 85%, and the uniformities range from 80% to 130%.
Quite Loud Noise Level in Economy Mode
At 31 decibels, the Optoma X402 has a quite loud noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age. The average noise level in economy mode of comparable spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the X402 is 29dB.
4 Other reasons to consider the Optoma X402
Running Costs Are Average
The X402 is typical compared to the other 67 data projectors of a similar age and spec that we have assessed for running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the X402 will cost £102 over 1 year to run.
Released Over a Year Ago
This projector has been on the market for over a year.
XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution
The highest resolution of the Optoma X402 is XGA (1024x768). That's 23% less resolution than the most frequently found native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800).
We compared all the other projectors that have a resolution of XGA (1024x768) to this multimedia projector and we think cheaper multimedia projectors such as the NEC V332X (£424.80), and the Casio XJ-V1 (£498.99) is also worth considering.
If the resolution of this data projector is too low for you then you might want to consider the PJD5553LWS (£531.60) (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated), or the PJD5550LWS (£528.00) (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated) both from Viewsonic or the Optoma ML1500E (£449.97) (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated).
+2 Other reasons
Average Noise Level
The Optoma X402 has a pretty average noise level (31 decibels) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to the X402.
Alternative data projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Vivitek Qumi Q4 (£365.00) (36dB and cheaper).

Total running cost over 5 years
Running costs for this projector have been estimated based on other similar projectors. If you know how much electricity and water the Optoma X402uses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this projector over 5 years will generate 0.51 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 13 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
