11 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Very Low

The FX5200 has an average running cost of only £96 over 1 year based on typical energy prices and usage levels, which makes it one of the cheapest to run multimedia projectors of this spec and age.

Optoma Has Good Data Projector Reviews

Optoma multimedia projectors have an average rating of 88%, which is in the top 19% of all projector manufacturers that we have looked at.

Good Picture Quality

One Optoma FX5200 owner wrote in their reviews that it had good picture quality. Mr M T Hall said on Amazon “Gforce Graphic Card give excellent graphics to games etci gave this product 5 stars”.

Supports 3D

Like most of the other data projectors of this type and age, the Optoma FX5200 supports 3D.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D to this data projector and we think the IN3134a[pl_2544144_price], or the IN3136a[pl_2544145_price] both from Infocus is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the FX5200, the Optoma FX5200 has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this data projector and we think the Viewsonic PRO8520HD[plb_1610101_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Infocus IN3134a[plb_2544144_price].
