10 Reasons For

Optoma Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

Optoma has good average ratings for its 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors as well as across its entire data projector range compared to other manufacturers.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma X515 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been around for the last year do not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Supports Full HD Projection

Unlike most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the X515 which do not support Full HD projection, the Optoma X515 supports Full HD projection.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which support Full HD projection to this data projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Acer H6510BD (£251.51) is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the X515, the Optoma X515 has a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the Epson PowerLite 585W.

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

At 6,500 ANSI lumens, the Optoma X515 has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched in the last 12 months. Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the X515 the projector brightness range from 450 ANSI lumens to 10,000 ANSI lumens.

If you are looking for a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the PT-RZ770 (£10,997.98) (7,200 ANSI lumens), or the PT-RZ970 (£13,298.40) (9,400 ANSI lumens) both from Panasonic.

Very High RMS Rated Power

With an RMS rated power of 20 Watts, the Optoma X515 has a very high RMS rated power compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the X515. The average RMS rated power of recently released projectors is 13W.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the X515 have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports, including the Optoma X515 which has three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Lamp Power

The Optoma X515 has one of the bigger lamp power (365 Watts) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. Recently released multimedia projectors have lamp power of between 190W and 430W.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on similar spec projectors that have been available for the last year.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

The Optoma X515 has a quite quiet noise level in economy mode (only 28 decibels) compared to most of the other recently released comparable spec data projectors. The noise levels in economy mode of recently released 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors range from 26dB to 39dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 29dB.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most data projectors that were launched around the same time as the X515 do not support WiFi connectivity. The Optoma X515 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the Canon 0910C005 (£467.40), the Hitachi CP-AX3005 (£822.36), or the Epson EB-585WS (£1,222.79) is also worth considering.

Very Small Offset

The Optoma X515 has a quite small offset (only 95 percent) compared to most of the other latest 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors. Across all the newly released comparable spec data projectors the offsets range from 95% to 140%, and the average offset is 120%.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Port

The Optoma X515 is a one USB 2.0 port projector.

Chart Edit

Only One Audio in Port

The Optoma X515 is a one audio in port data projector.

The lowest power consumption in economy mode of recently released 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors is 0.5W and the highest is 680W.
