Expensive

We checked 90 similar spec projectors that were released more than a year ago and they range in price from £329 to £19,033. We think that this projector looks expensive compared to other similar spec projectors that were released more than a year ago.


Other

Released Over a Year Ago

Optoma released the EH515 in October 2015.


Video

Supports Full HD

The Optoma EH515 supports full HD. Most of the other data projectors of this spec and age also support full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a full HD and we think the Optoma EH515T (£2,010.40), or the Panasonic PT-FZ570 (£2,038.80) are also worth considering.

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma EH515 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other data projectors of a comparable type and age to this multimedia projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Epson EB-1430Wi (£1,923.24).

There are a number of alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might want to consider including the W515T (£1,998), or the EH515T (£2,010.40) both from Optoma.

Energy

Very High Running Costs

Based on average energy prices we estimate that the EH515 will cost £140 over 1 year to run, which makes it one of the least economic to run projectors of this spec and age.


Projector

The Optoma EH515 has one of the brighter projector brightnesses (5,500 ANSI lumens) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age. Projectors that are a comparable age to this projector have projector brightnesses of between 600 ANSI lumens and 16,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,100 ANSI lumens.

1080p (1920x1080) Resolution

Quite Quiet Noise Level

At only 28 decibels, the Optoma EH515 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as this data projector. The quietest noise level of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released one year ago is 27dB, the loudest is 48dB, and the average noise level is 34dB.

Alternative 28dB noise level projectors currently available that you might want to consider include the Optoma W515 (£1,807.20) which is cheaper.

If you are not worried about having a louder noise level then you might want to consider the W515T (£1,998) (28dB), or the EH515T (£2,010.40) (28dB) both from Optoma.
