Video

Supports Full HD

The Optoma EH415 supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for more than two years do not support full HD.

There are a number of other data projectors which support full HD currently available that you might want to consider including the EH415e, or the EH415ST both from Optoma and both of which are cheaper.

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma EH415 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as this data projector.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the EH415e, or the EH415ST both from Optoma and both of which are cheaper.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) which you might want to consider including the Optoma X501 (£1,371.17).

Projector

1080p (1920x1080) Resolution

The highest resolution of the Optoma EH415 is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of a XGA (1024x768) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution. The resolution of all 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched more than two years ago ranges from SVGA (800x600) to WUXGA (1920x1200).

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 4,200 ANSI lumens, the Optoma EH415 has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for a similar time to this projector. Across all the comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago the projector brightnesses range from 700 ANSI lumens to 11,000 ANSI lumens.

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the Optoma W415e (£939.26) (4,500 ANSI lumens) which is also cheaper.
