Power

Energy

Running Costs Are OK

The HD90 has an average running cost of £83 over 1 year based on average energy prices and usage levels, which is typical compared to the other 51 similar spec projectors that have been around for more than two years.


Other

Projector

Very Dim Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of multimedia projectors of this age and type is 300 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 9,200 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,000 ANSI lumens. The Optoma HD90 has one of the dimmer projector brightnesses (only 1,200 ANSI lumen) amongst projectors of this age.

We compared this projector to all the other 1,200 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think because of their better review scores, the DLA-X95R, and the DLA-X75R both from JVC are also worth considering.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth considering include the HD161 (2,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated), the X313 (3,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the H111 (3,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated) all from Optoma.
