Other

Released Over a Year Ago

It was February 2016 when Optoma released the DH1012.


Energy

Average Running Costs

The DH1012 has an average 1 year running cost of £82 based on typical usage levels and energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 7 18000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than a year ago.


Video

Supports Full HD

The Optoma DH1012 supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other 18000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to this data projector do not support full HD.

It is worth also looking at other multimedia projectors which also support full HD including the DS346I (£209.99), the DH1011i, or the EH319UST (£1,052.53) all from Optoma.

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma DH1012 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to this data projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth considering one of the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including because of its better review score, the Viewsonic PJD5150 (£229.99).

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) which you might want to consider including the Optoma DS346I (£209.99).
