Running Costs Are Very Low

Based on average energy prices we estimate that the 1 year running cost of the DX5100 is only £84, which is in the cheapest 5% of all 47 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for more than two years.

Very Low Power Consumption During PowerSave

15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the DX5100 have power consumption during PowerSave of between 190W and 410W. At only 194 Watts, the Optoma DX5100 has a fairly low power consumption during PowerSave compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age.

Over Two Years Old

Optoma released the DX5100 over two years ago.

Very Small Matrix Size

With a matrix size of only 0.55 inches, the Optoma DX5100 has a fairly small matrix size compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for more than two years. Across all the similar spec projectors that are more than two years old the matrix sizes range from 0.55" to 0.76".

Only One USB 2.0 Port

The Optoma DX5100 is a one USB 2.0 port multimedia projector. Most of the other projectors of this age and type have between one and two USB 2.0 ports.

Very Small RMS Rated Power

The Optoma DX5100 has one of the smaller RMS rated power (only 2 Watts) amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. Across all the projectors that came out around the same time as the DX5100 the RMS rated power range from 2W to 20W.

Very Small Lamp Power

At only 190 Watts, the Optoma DX5100 has a quite small lamp power compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the DX5100. Across all the 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are older than two years the lamp power range from 190W to 380W, and the average lamp power is 250W.

Dim Projector Brightness

15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are older than two years have projector brightnesses of between 700 ANSI lumens and 8,000 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 2,800 ANSI lumens, the Optoma DX5100 has one of the dimmer projector brightnesses amongst data projectors of this age.

We think you might also be interested in other 2800 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors including a higher rated product such as the PJD5533W, the PJD5132 (£241.40), or the PJD5134 (£273.92) all from Viewsonic.

If you want a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to also look at the Optoma X303 (3000 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Quiet Noise Level

15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the DX5100 have noise levels of between 26dB and 40dB. At only 26 decibels, the Optoma DX5100 has a very quiet noise level compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that are more than two years old.

Other 26dB noise level data projectors that you might want to consider include a higher Kagoo Rating™ product such as the X303, or the W303 both from Optoma.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

This projector supports graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA), 640 x 480 (VGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA), which is typical of many similar spec projectors that have been around for a comparable time to it.

Multimedia projectors with a higher resolution that might be worth also looking at include the Optoma X303 (1024 x 768 (XGA and higher rated), 1280 x 720 (HD 720 and higher rated), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA and higher rated), 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080 and higher rated), 640 x 480 (VGA and higher rated), 800 x 600 (SVGA and higher rated) and higher rated).

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma DX5100 supports 3D image projection, unlike most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the DX5100 which do not support 3D image projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection and we think a higher scoring multimedia projector such as the Viewsonic PJD5132 (£241.40) are also worth considering.

This projector has a native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768), which is typical of many similar spec projectors that are older than two years.

Other multimedia projectors that have a resolution of XGA (1024x768) that you might want to also look at include a higher scoring projector such as the Optoma X303.

Projectors with a higher resolution that might be worth also looking at include the Optoma W303 (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated), or the Epson EB-W16 (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated).
