+16 More reasons for
Supports 3D Image Projection
The Optoma X600 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago do not support 3D image projection.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative data projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including the Benq W1300 (£824.23) which has a better Rating; or the Benq W1400 (£699.95), or the NEC M352 which is cheaper.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The Optoma X600 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for more than two years also have a built-in speaker.
Other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might want to look at include the Benq W1300 (£824.23) which has a better Rating; or the Benq W1400 (£699.95), or the NEC M352 which is cheaper.
Quite Bright Projector Brightness
With a projector brightness of 6,000 ANSI lumens, the Optoma X600 has one of the brightest projector brightness amongst similar spec projectors of this age. Across all the data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the X600 the projector brightness range from 300 ANSI lumens to 12,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,100 ANSI lumens.
1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution
The highest resolution supported by the Optoma X600 is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA). Across all 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago the worst resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).
If the resolution of this data projector is not high enough for you then you might also want to consider the NEC M352 (720 x 480|720 x 576|832 x 624|1152 x 870|1280 x 768|1280 x 800|1280 x 960|1440 x 900|1024 x 768 (XGA and cheaper)|1152 x 864 (XGA+ and cheaper)|1280 x 1024 (SXGA and cheaper)|1280 x 720 (HD 720 and cheaper)|1280 x 768 (WXGA and cheaper)|1280 x 800 (WXGA and cheaper)|1360 x 768 (WXGA and cheaper)|1366 Ñ 768|1400 x 1050 (SXGA+ and cheaper)|1440 x 900 (WXGA+ and cheaper)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA and cheaper)|1680 x 1050 (WSXG and cheaper), or the Benq W1400 (£699.95) (1920 x 1080 (HD 1080 and cheaper)|1920 x 1200 (WUXGA and cheaper) and cheaper) or the Benq W1300 (£824.23) (1600 x 1200 (UXGA and higher rated)|1920 x 1080 (HD 1080 and higher rated)|640 x 480 (VGA and higher rated) and higher rated).
Three Built-In Speakers
The Optoma X600 is a three built-in speaker projector.
Two Composite Video in Ports
Most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the X600 only have one composite video in port, however the Optoma X600 has two composite video in ports.
Quite Big Matrix Size
The Optoma X600 has a fairly big matrix size (0.7 inches) compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age. The average matrix size of 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the X600 is 0.61", and the matrix sizes range from 0.45" to 0.96".
Fairly High Maximum Vertical Synchronization
With a maximum vertical synchronization of 144 kilohertz, the Optoma X600 has one of the highest maximum vertical synchronization amongst similar spec data projectors of this age. Multimedia projectors of this spec and age have maximum vertical synchronization of between 0.12kHz and 240kHz, and the average maximum vertical synchronization is 71kHz.
Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports
The Optoma X600 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the projectors of a comparable spec and age to the X600. This multimedia projector is a three VGA (D-Sub) port data projector compared to most of the 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago which only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.
Two HDMI Ports
Most comparable spec projectors that came out more than two years ago have between one and two HDMI ports, including the Optoma X600 which has two HDMI ports.
Two Audio in Ports
Most multimedia projectors of this age and spec have between one and two audio in ports, including the Optoma X600 which has two audio in ports.
Quite High Number of Colours
The average number of colours of similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years is 470M. At 1,070 million, the Optoma X600 has a quite high number of colours compared to most of the other data projectors of this type and age.
Quite Big Lamp Power
With a lamp power of 310 Watts, the Optoma X600 has one of the bigger lamp power amongst comparable spec multimedia projectors of this age. Across all the similar spec data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the X600 the lamp power range from 15W to 420W.
Fairly Bright Lamp Power in Economic Mode
The Optoma X600 has one of the brighter lamp powers in economic mode (3,500 Watts) amongst similar spec data projectors of this age. Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the X600 the lamp powers in economic mode range from 130W to 30,000W, and the average lamp power in economic mode is 2,700W.
Quite Quiet Noise Level
At only 28 decibels, the Optoma X600 has a very quiet noise level compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the X600. Across all the projectors of a similar spec and age to the X600 the noise levels range from 28dB to 47dB.
If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might want to consider the Benq W1400 (£699.95) (33dB and cheaper).
6 Reasons Against
Does Not Support Full HD Projection
The Optoma X600 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other projectors of this age and spec also do not support Full HD projection.
There are a number of alternative data projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might also want to consider including the Benq W1400 (£699.95); or the Benq W1300 (£824.23).
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
Most projectors of this age and spec do not support WiFi connectivity. The Optoma X600 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.
Quite Short Lamp Service Life
10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out more than two years ago have lamp service lives of between 500h and 30,000h. When compared to other data projectors of this age and spec, the lamp service life of the Optoma X600 of only 2,500 hours is one of the shortest.
Very Low Maximum Horizontal Synchronization
Similar spec multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the X600 have maximum horizontal synchronization of between 90kHz and 110kHz. The Optoma X600 has one of the lower maximum horizontal synchronization (only 91 kilohertz) amongst projectors of this age.
+3 More reasons against
Only One USB 2.0 Port
The Optoma X600 is a one USB 2.0 port data projector. Most of the other similar spec projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the X600 have between one and two USB 2.0 ports.
Not Cheap for a Comparable Spec Projector That Has Been Around for More Than Two Years
We thought that this 10000:1 contrast ratio projector looks expensive for a comparable spec projector that has been around for more than two years. We checked 88 multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec and they range in price from £224 to £19,164.
3 Other reasons to consider the Optoma X600
Running Costs Are OK
The average running cost of the X600 is £107 over 1 year based on average usage levels and energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 102 projectors that have been on the market for more than two years.
Released Over Two Years Ago
Optoma released the X600 over two years ago.
XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution
The highest resolution of the Optoma X600 is XGA (1024x768). That's 23% less resolution than the most frequently found native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800).
If the resolution of this multimedia projector is not high enough for you then you might also want to look at the NEC M352 (WXGA (1280x800 and cheaper) and cheaper), or the Benq W1400 (£699.95) (1080p (1920x1080 and cheaper) and cheaper); or the Benq W1300 (£824.23) (1080p (1920x1080 and higher rated) and higher rated).

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 X600uses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this projector over 5 years will generate 0.53 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 14 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
