Supports Full HD

The Optoma HD25e supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the HD25e do not support full HD.

We compared all the other data projectors which support full HD to this multimedia projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq W7000+[plb_1403580_price], and the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 5030ub[plb_2301495_price] is also worth considering.

The Optoma HD25e has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the HD25e.

Alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might also want to consider include the Optoma HD25-LV[plb_1883129_price], or the Vivitek Q7 Plus[plb_2729062_price] which has better reviews.

Supports 3D

The Optoma HD25e supports 3D. Most of the other projectors of this type and age also support 3D.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors which support 3D currently available including the Benq W7000+[plb_1403580_price], or the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 5030ub[plb_2301495_price] which has better reviews.

1080p (1920x1080) Projector Native Resolution

This projector has a projector native resolution of 1080p (1920x1080), which is the most frequently found projector native resolution on comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The Optoma HD25e supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). 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 projector). This multimedia projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 1280 x 768 (WXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all projectors that were released more than two years ago the worst resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

Across all the similar spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the HD25e the noise levels range from 20dB to 47dB. With a noise level of only 26 decibels, the Optoma HD25e has one of the quieter noise levels amongst similar spec projectors of this age.

We compared all the other 26dB noise level data projectors to this multimedia projector and we think because of it's better review score, the HD30[pl_1915718_price], and the HD25-LV[pl_1883129_price] both from Optoma or the Sony VPL-VW500ES[plb_1605541_price] is also worth considering.

4 Reasons Against

Not Good in Terms of Size

One Optoma HD25e owner mentioned in their reviews that the product was not thin.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Optoma HD25e does not support wi-Fi, although this is within the context that most of the other similar spec projectors that came out more than two years ago also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi to this projector and we think the Benq GP20[plb_2231335_price] is also worth considering.

Very Small Bulb Power

The smallest bulb power of multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the HD25e is 140W and the biggest is 580W. At only 190 Watts, the Optoma HD25e has a quite small bulb power compared to most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the HD25e.

Chart Edit

Very Small Uniformity

Projectors that were launched more than two years ago have uniformitys of between 80% and 130%. With a uniformity of only 80 percent, the Optoma HD25e has a quite small uniformity compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago.

2 Other reasons to consider the Optoma HD25e

Released Over Three Years Ago

This multimedia projector was released over three years ago.

Average Projector Brightness

At 2,800 ANSI lumens, the Optoma HD25e has a fairly standard projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the HD25e.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 2,800 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the Optoma GT1080[plb_2415608_price] which has better reviews.

Data projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth considering include the W311[pl_3054527_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the X351[pl_2821583_price] (3,600 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Optoma or the Viewsonic PJD6350[plb_2830965_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
