6 Reasons For

Good Brand

Optoma has good average ratings for its data projectors as well as across its entire data projector range compared to other manufacturers.

Supports Full HD

The Optoma HD161 supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other data projectors that have been available for more than two years do not support full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors which support full HD and we think the Viewsonic Pro9000[plb_1517329_price], and the Optoma HD50[plb_2578841_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Alternative multimedia projectors which also support full HD that you might also want to look at include the Infocus IN2128HD[plb_2524653_price].

Supports 3D

Like most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the HD161, the Optoma HD161 supports 3D.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which support 3D currently available which you might also want to look at including because of it's better review score, the Optoma HD50[plb_2578841_price], or the Epson EH-TW5910[plb_1717178_price].

1080p (1920x1080) Projector Native Resolution

This multimedia projector has a projector native resolution of 1080p (1920x1080), which is typical of many data projectors that came out more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the Optoma HD161 is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of the most common supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this data projector). This projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all data projectors of this age and spec the best resolution is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Offset

With an offset of 130 percent, the Optoma HD161 has one of the bigger offsets amongst data projectors of this age. The average offset of data projectors that were launched around the same time as the HD161 is 100%, and the offsets range from 0.03% to 140%.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

Most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the HD161 have a built-in speaker(s), however the Optoma HD161 does not have a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) which you might want to consider including the Epson EB-536Wi[plb_2697341_price]; or the Viewsonic Pro9000[plb_1517329_price].

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Optoma HD161 does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth noting that most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the HD161 also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp

The service life of lamps of projectors of a comparable age and type to the HD161 range from 1,500h to 30,000h. At only 3,000 hours, the Optoma HD161 has a fairly short service life of lamp compared to most of the other data projectors that are a comparable age to the HD161.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantity

The Optoma HD161 is a one VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity projector.

5 Other reasons to consider the Optoma HD161

Running Costs Are Average

Based on typical usage levels and energy prices we estimate that the HD161 will cost £91 over 1 year to run, which is typical compared to the other 123 multimedia projectors of this age and type.

Recent Price Increase of £2.39

In the last 27 days the price of the HD161 has increased by £2.39.

Released Over Two Years Ago

This multimedia projector has been on the market for over two years.

Average Noise Level

At 29 decibels, the Optoma HD161 has a pretty typical noise level compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 29dB noise level projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the Optoma HD50[plb_2578841_price].

Other projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Optoma HD36[plb_2569323_price] (27dB and higher rated), or the Viewsonic Pro9000[plb_1517329_price] (28dB and higher rated).

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 2,000 ANSI lumens, the Optoma HD161 has a relatively average projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other 2,000 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors and we think the Optoma HD25-LV[plb_1883129_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
