10 Reasons For

Optoma Projectors Have Good Reviews

On average Optoma projectors have good reviews compared to other manufacturers as do all projectors produced by Optoma.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Optoma ZU650 supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the ZU650 do not support Full HD projection.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative multimedia projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including because of it's better review score, the VPL-VW320ES[pl_3026757_price], or the VPL-VW600ES[pl_3231568_price] both from Sony.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the ZU650, the Optoma ZU650 supports 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

Projectors that came out more than a year ago have projector brightness of between 500 ANSI lumens and 8,200 ANSI lumens. At 6,000 ANSI lumens, the Optoma ZU650 has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the ZU650.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the PT-DZ780[pl_3496645_price] (7,000 ANSI lumens), or the PT-DW750[pl_3897889_price] (7,000 ANSI lumens) both from Panasonic.

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The Optoma ZU650 has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) data projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

A WUXGA (1920x1200) native projector resolution is in fact the best resolution amongst all multimedia projectors that came out more than a year ago.

The worst resolution across comparable types of projector is SVGA (800x600).

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The Optoma ZU650 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA).

This data projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is in fact the best supported resolution across all projectors that have been around for around the same time as the ZU650.

A 640 x 480 (VGA) graphics resolution is the worst supported resolution amongst similar types of data projector.

Fairly Big Matrix Size

With a matrix size of 0.67 inches, the Optoma ZU650 has a quite big matrix size compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the ZU650. The matrix sizes of projectors that are a similar age to the ZU650 range from 0.45" to 0.74".

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Lamp Service Life

The Optoma ZU650 has one of the longer lamp service lives (20,000 hours) amongst projectors of this age. The shortest lamp service life of projectors of a comparable age and type to the ZU650 is 2,000h and the longest is 30,000h.

Chart Edit

Very Bright Brightness in Economy Mode

The brightness in economy mode of data projectors that came out more than a year ago range from 1,500 ANSI lumens to 5,000 ANSI lumens. With a brightness in economy mode of 5,000 ANSI lumens, the Optoma ZU650's brightness in economy mode is one of the brightest amongst projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the ZU650.

Chart Edit

Very Big Optical Zoom

When compared to other similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the ZU650 that we have assessed, the optical zoom of the Optoma ZU650 of 1.9 times zoom factor is one of the biggest. The average optical zoom of comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the ZU650 is 1.2x.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma ZU650 does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other data projectors that are a similar age to the ZU650.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Optoma ZU650 does not support WiFi connectivity, although this is within the context that most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the ZU650 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this multimedia projector and we think the Vivitek Qumi Q6[plb_3137053_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

High Running Costs

Based on average energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the 1 year running cost of the ZU650 is £180, which is in the most expensive 9% of all 60 projectors of this type and age.

Only One HDMI Port

The Optoma ZU650 is a one HDMI port data projector. Most of the other data projectors of this type and age have one HDMI port.

Chart Edit

Quite High Power Consumption in Economy Mode

The Optoma ZU650 has one of the higher power consumption in economy mode (300 Watts) amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age. The power consumption in economy mode of projectors that are a comparable age to the ZU650 range from 85W to 430W.

Chart Edit

Very Loud Noise Level in Economy Mode

The noise level in economy mode of the Optoma ZU650 of 33 decibels is one of the loudest amongst projectors of a comparable age and type to the ZU650. The average noise level in economy mode of comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the ZU650 is 29dB, and the noise levels in economy mode range from 21dB to 35dB.

Chart Edit

Very Heavy

At 18 kilograms, the Optoma ZU650 is very heavy compared to most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the ZU650. Across all the projectors that have been around for a similar time to the ZU650 the weights range from 9.7g to 18kg, and the average weight is 4.4kg.
