13 Reasons For
Optoma Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors
15000:1 contrast ratio projectors manufactured by Optoma have good reviews on average. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors) and found that Optoma also has good reviews across its entire range.
Supports Full HD
The Optoma EH300 supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the EH300 do not support full HD.
Other projectors which support full HD currently available which you might want to consider include the Epson EH-TW5200[plb_1732117_price] which has better reviews.
The Optoma EH300 supports 3D. Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EH300 also support 3D.
We compared all the other projectors which support 3D to this projector and we think the Viewsonic PJD5533W[plb_1500188_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support 3D to this projector and we think the W307[pl_1727438_price], or the X307[pl_1727619_price] both from Optoma is also worth considering.
Has a Built-In Speaker(s)
The Optoma EH300 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the EH300.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Viewsonic PJD5533W[plb_1500188_price] which has better reviews.
There are a number of other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) which you might want to consider including the W307[pl_1727438_price], or the X307[pl_1727619_price] both from Optoma.
1080p (1920x1080) Projector Native Resolution
The highest resolution of the Optoma EH300 is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of the most frequently found projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768). The resolution of all multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago ranges from SVGA (800x600) (worst) to WUXGA (1920x1200) (best).
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Supported Graphics Resolutions
The highest resolution supported by the Optoma EH300 is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's 8% more resolution than a 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) data projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by projectors of this spec and age. 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) is also supported by this data projector. In addition, this projector support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 640 x 480 (VGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all similar spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago the best resolution is 4096 x 2160 and the worst is 640 x 400.
+8 More reasons for
Fairly High Number of Colours
At 1,073.4 million, the Optoma EH300 has a fairly high number of colours compared to most of the other data projectors of this age and spec. The numbers of colours of similar spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EH300 range from 1M to 1,100M, and the average number of colours is 860M.
Two Number of Built-In Speakerss
The Optoma EH300 has more number of built-in speakerss than most of the projectors of a similar age and type to the EH300. Most of the multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago only have one number of built-in speakers, however this projector has two number of built-in speakerss.
Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys
The Optoma EH300 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys than most of the projectors that came out around the same time as the EH300. This projector is a three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity multimedia projector compared to most of the 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago which only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.
Two HDMI Ports Quantitys
Most of the other projectors of this age and spec only have one HDMI ports quantity, however the Optoma EH300 has two HDMI ports quantitys.
Quite High RMS Rated Power
Projectors of a similar spec and age to the EH300 have RMS rated powers of between 2W and 30W. At 16 Watts, the Optoma EH300 has a fairly high RMS rated power compared to most of the other data projectors of this age and type.
Quite Big Offset
The average offset of projectors of this spec and age is 96%. With an offset of 116 percent, the Optoma EH300 has one of the bigger offsets amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.
Very Quiet Noise Level
Across all the multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the EH300 the noise levels range from 26dB to 40dB. The Optoma EH300 has one of the quieter noise levels (only 26 decibels) amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.
3 Reasons Against
Does Not Support Wi-Fi
The Optoma EH300 does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth noting that most of the other projectors that have been on the market for more than two years also do not support wi-Fi.
Very Small Uniformity
The Optoma EH300 has one of the smaller uniformitys (only 80 percent) amongst comparable spec multimedia projectors of this age. The uniformitys of 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago range from 80% to 90%.
Only One USB 2.0 Ports Quantity
The Optoma EH300 is a one USB 2.0 ports quantity multimedia projector. Most of the other projectors that have been around for more than two years have between one and three USB 2.0 ports quantitys.
3 Other reasons to consider the Optoma EH300

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 EH300uses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this projector over 5 years will generate 0.49 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 13 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
