7 Reasons For

Optoma Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

Optoma 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good ratings on average and across all data projectors Optoma is one of the superior brands.

Supports 3D

The Optoma EX631 supports 3D, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the EX631 do not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the EX631, the Optoma EX631 has a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the NEC NP-M282[plb_2338575_price] which has better reviews.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the Optoma EX631 is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this data projector. This Optoma projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA) and 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). The best resolution of all 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the EX631 is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

The Optoma EX631 has one of the brighter projector brightnesss (3,500 ANSI lumens) amongst similar spec data projectors of this age. Comparable spec data projectors that have been available for more than two years have projector brightnesss of between 300 ANSI lumens and 12,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,300 ANSI lumens.

There are a number of other 3,500 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available which you might want to consider including the Panasonic PT-RZ370U[plb_1844616_price] which has better reviews.

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

The Optoma EX631 is a three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity data projector. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the EX631 have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The weights of multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the EX631 range from 360g to 54kg, and the average weight is 4.7kg. The Optoma EX631 is one of the lighter 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago (only 2.2 kilograms) amongst multimedia projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

The Optoma EX631 does not support full HD, although this is within the context that most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years also do not support full HD.

It is worth also looking at other projectors which also support full HD including the Epson 1975W[plb_3009713_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the EX631, the Optoma EX631 does not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi to this data projector and we think the Benq W1500[plb_1561671_price], or the Epson PowerLite 1222[plb_2225031_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

With a number of colours of only 1.07 million, the Optoma EX631 has one of the lower numbers of colours amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The numbers of colours of multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the EX631 range from 1M to 1,100M, and the average number of colours is 590M.

Chart Edit

Chart Edit
