8 Reasons For
Based on 1,712 user and expert reviews, Optoma has good reviews for its projectors. Optoma also has good reviews specifically within its data projectors range compared to other brands.
Just Released Eight Months Ago
The EH330 was only relased by Optoma eight months ago.
Supports Full HD
The Optoma EH330 supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors that were released in the last year do not support full HD.
We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the EH331[pl_3729195_price], or the EH345[pl_3907680_price] both from Optoma or the Viewsonic PJD7836HDL[plb_3737503_price] is also worth considering.
Has a Built-In Speaker(s)
The Optoma EH330 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other new data projectors also have a built-in speaker(s).
We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the EH331[pl_3729195_price], or the EH345[pl_3907680_price] both from Optoma or the Viewsonic PJD7836HDL[plb_3737503_price] is also worth considering.
1080p (1920x1080) Projector Native Resolution
This data projector has a projector native resolution of 1080p (1920x1080), which is typical of many latest projectors.
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Supported Graphics Resolutions
The Optoma EH330 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of the most common supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this Optoma projector). In addition, this multimedia projector support supported graphics resolutionss of 800 x 600 (SVGA), 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 1280 x 768 (WXGA) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). Across all data projectors that were launched around the same time as the EH330 the worst resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).
+3 More reasons for
Across all the recently released data projectors the weights range from 2.7g to 28kg. At only 2.2 kilograms, the Optoma EH330 is fairly light compared to most of the other newly released data projectors.
Very Low Power Consumption (economy Mode)
At only 187 Watts, the Optoma EH330 has a quite low power consumption (economy mode) compared to most of the other data projectors that came out in the last year. Across all the new data projectors the power consumption (economy mode)s range from 180W to 850W, and the average power consumption (economy mode) is 260W.
6 Reasons Against
Does Not Support 3D
Most data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EH330 do not support 3D. The Optoma EH330 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.
It is worth also looking at other multimedia projectors which also support 3D including the EH331[pl_3729195_price], or the EH345[pl_3907680_price] both from Optoma or the Viewsonic PJD7836HDL[plb_3737503_price].
Does Not Support Wi-Fi
Most latest comparable spec projectors do not support wi-Fi. The Optoma EH330 is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.
Very Small Uniformity
The uniformitys of similar spec data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the EH330 range from 70% to 90%, and the average uniformity is 79%. The Optoma EH330 has one of the smaller uniformitys (only 70 percent) amongst data projectors of this age.
Very Small Bulb Power
The Optoma EH330 has a quite small bulb power (only 195 Watts) compared to most of the other recently released data projectors. Across all the comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the EH330 the bulb powers range from 190W to 470W, and the average bulb power is 270W.
+3 More reasons against
Very Low RMS Rated Power
Across all the data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EH330 the RMS rated powers range from 1W to 26W, and the average RMS rated power is 8.3W. The Optoma EH330 has a fairly low RMS rated power (only 2 Watts) compared to most of the other recently released data projectors.
Only One VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantity
The Optoma EH330 is a one VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity projector.
3 Other reasons to consider the Optoma EH330
Running Costs Are OK
The EH330 has an average running cost of £76 over 1 year based on typical usage levels and energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 81 latest data projectors.
Price Has Increased by £3.36
The price of the EH330 increased by £3.36 in the last couple of weeks.
Average Projector Brightness
At 3,100 ANSI lumens, the Optoma EH330 has a pretty typical projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EH330.
If this Optoma multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to consider the Optoma EH345[plb_3907680_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens).

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 EH330uses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this projector over 5 years will generate 0.38 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 10 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
