10 Reasons For

Good Brand

Multimedia projectors from Optoma have an average rating of 88 out of 100, which is in the top 19% of all multimedia projector manufacturers that we have assessed.

Supports 3D

Unlike most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the EW865 which do not support 3D, the Optoma EW865 supports 3D.

We compared all the other data projectors which support 3D to this projector and we think the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma EW865 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the EW865.

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

At 6,000 ANSI lumens, the Optoma EW865 has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for more than two years. The dimmest projector brightness of multimedia projectors of this age and type is 110 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 10,000 ANSI lumens.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the Optoma EW865 is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) data projector, which is the most common resolution supported by 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the EW865. This multimedia projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) supported graphics resolutions is actually the best supported resolution across all data projectors of this age and type.

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

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

The Optoma EW865 has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most frequently found projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768). Across all data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years the best resolution is WUXGA (1920x1200) and the worst is XGA (1024x768).

Chart Edit

Very Big Uniformity

The uniformitys of multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago range from 78% to 95%, and the average uniformity is 86%. The uniformity of the Optoma EW865 of 95 percent is one of the biggest amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the EW865.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Bulb Power

Data projectors of a comparable age and type to the EW865 have bulb powers of between 170W and 4,000W. At 400 Watts, the Optoma EW865 has a very big bulb power compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the EW865.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level

The average noise level of data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the EW865 is 36dB. At only 31 decibels, the Optoma EW865 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on projectors of this age and spec.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the EW865, the Optoma EW865 does not support full HD.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support full HD to this data projector and we think the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector[plb_3156294_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Optoma EW865 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years also do not support wi-Fi.

Alternative 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.

Running Costs Are Very High

The EW865 is one of the least economic to run multimedia projectors of this type and age that we have assessed for 1 year running costs. Based on typical energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the EW865 is £183.

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

With a service life of lamp (economic mode) of only 3,500 hours, the Optoma EW865 has one of the shorter service life of lamp (economic mode)s amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. The average service life of lamp (economic mode) of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the EW865 is 4,100h.

Chart Edit
