Optoma EH505 Projector Introduction

8 Reasons For

Optoma Has Good Reviews for Its Data Projectors

On average Optoma projectors are rated 88 out of 100, which is in the top 19% of all projector manufacturers that we have assessed.

Supports 3D

The Optoma EH505 supports 3D, which is unusual. Most of the other data projectors of a similar type and age to the EH505 do not support 3D.

We compared all the other data projectors which support 3D to this multimedia projector and we think because of it's better review score, the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price] is also worth considering.

Supports Full HD

The Optoma EH505 supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other similar spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the EH505 do not support full HD.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors which support full HD currently available including the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector[plb_3156294_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma EH505 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

WUXGA (1920x1200) Projector Native Resolution

The Optoma EH505 has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of the most common projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768).

A WUXGA (1920x1200) projector native resolution is actually the best resolution across all similar spec projectors that came out around the same time as the EH505.

The worst resolution amongst similar types of data projector is XGA (1024x768).

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The Optoma EH505 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by projectors of this age and type.

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) supported graphics resolutions is in fact the best supported resolution across all comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the EH505.

The worst supported resolution amongst comparable types of projector is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Fairly Big Bulb Power

The bulb power of the Optoma EH505 of 400 Watts is one of the biggest amongst projectors that are a similar age to the EH505. The smallest bulb power of projectors of a comparable age and type to the EH505 is 170W, the biggest is 4,000W, and the average bulb power is 320W.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Optoma EH505 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the EH505 also do not support wi-Fi.

Alternative multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might also want to consider include the Epson PowerLite 1761W[plb_1735741_price], or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro[plb_1759924_price] which also has a higher rating.

Very Short Service Life of Lamp

With a service life of lamp of only 1,500 hour, the Optoma EH505 has a fairly short service life of lamp compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the EH505. Across all the multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the EH505 the service life of lamps range from 200h to 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 5,200h.

Chart Edit

Very Low Horizontal Synchronization (max)

At only 91 kilohertz, the Optoma EH505 has a quite low horizontal synchronization (max) compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the EH505. Across all the 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the EH505 the horizontal synchronization (max)s range from 91kHz to 110kHz, and the average horizontal synchronization (max) is 100kHz.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Ports Quantity

The Optoma EH505 is a one USB 2.0 ports quantity projector. Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the EH505 have between one and two USB 2.0 ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The lightest projector of a similar age and type to the EH505 is 370g heavy and the heaviest is 23kg. At 8.6 kilograms, the Optoma EH505 is quite heavy compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the EH505.

Chart Edit

Very Loud Noise Level (economic Mode)

Across all the 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years the noise level (economic mode)s range from 26dB to 37dB. When compared to other comparable spec data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EH505 that we have assessed, the noise level (economic mode) of the Optoma EH505 of 37 decibels is one of the loudest.
