Energy

OK Running Costs

The EW400 is typical compared to the other 72 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago that we have assessed for running costs. Based on typical energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the EW400 will cost £100 over 1 year to run.

Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The Optoma EW400 does not support full HD, although this is within the context that most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to this data projector also do not support full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which also support full HD to this projector and we think the Viewsonic PRO8600 is also worth considering.

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma EW400 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors of this type and age.

There are a number of alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might want to consider including because of its better review score, the Optoma ML1000.

Projector

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of comparable spec data projectors that were released around the same time as this projector is 4,100 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightnesses range from 700 ANSI lumens to 11,000 ANSI lumens. The Optoma EW400 has a fairly bright projector brightness (4,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as this projector.

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the EH415e (4,200 ANSI lumens), the X501 (£1,371.17) (4,500 ANSI lumens), or the W415e (£939.26) (4,500 ANSI lumens) all from Optoma.

Quite Quiet Noise Level

At only 29 decibels, the Optoma EW400 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to this data projector. Data projectors of this age and type have noise levels of between 24dB and 40dB.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 29dB noise level data projectors currently available including the Optoma W316ST (£421.28) which has better reviews.

If you are not concerned about having a louder noise level then you might want to consider the Optoma X401 (£689.20) (29dB).
