Optoma Has Good Reviews for Its Data Projectors

Optoma is one of the better rated projector brands according to average user and expert review score data that we have collected for all projectors.


Energy

Running Costs Are Average

The EH503 is typical compared to the other 91 multimedia projectors of this spec and age that we have looked at for 1 year running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the EH503 is £152.


Other

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was February 2014 when this multimedia projector was released.


Video

Supports Full HD

The Optoma EH503 supports full HD. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to this projector do not support full HD.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support full HD and we think because of their better review scores, the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector, and the Canon WUX400ST are also worth considering.

Projector

Average Projector Brightness

At 5,200 ANSI lumens, the Optoma EH503 has a relatively standard projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age.

Other 5,200 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available that you might want to consider include because of its better review score, the Sony VPLFH36/W (£3,690.52).

If this data projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the Panasonic PT-EX510 (£1,539) (5,300 ANSI lumens).

1080p (1920x1080) Resolution

The resolution of all similar spec multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago ranges from XGA (1024x768) to WUXGA (1920x1200).
