Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma DU400 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors of this age and spec.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think a cheaper multimedia projector such as the DH913 (£845.20), and the DX831 (£839.08) both from Vivitek or you might consider a better rated multimedia projector such as the Benq W2000 (£779.00) are also worth considering.

Projector

WUXGA (1920x1200) Resolution

The highest resolution of the Optoma DU400 is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's 11% more resolution than the most common projector native resolution of 1080p (1920x1080).

A WUXGA (1920x1200) projector native resolution is actually the best resolution amongst all projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to this projector.

A SVGA (800x600) projector native resolution is the worst resolution amongst comparable types of multimedia projector.

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

The Optoma DU400 has a fairly bright projector brightness (4,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to this multimedia projector. Across all the similar spec projectors that have been around for a comparable time to this multimedia projector the projector brightnesses range from 2,000 ANSI lumens to 5,000 ANSI lumens.

There are a number of other 4,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available that you might also want to look at including cheaper data projectors such as the Infocus IN128HDX (£699.60), or the Optoma DH400 (£704.39).

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the DX831 (£839.08) (4,500 ANSI lumens), or the DW832 (£650.00) (5,000 ANSI lumens) both from Vivitek which is also cheaper.
