Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma ML800 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to this multimedia projector.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including a cheaper data projector such as the Benq 720P; 2500 ANSI LUMENS; 5.94LBS; HDMI X2; C; S-V; COM; A; 10W SPKX1; AO; CONTROL or you might consider a better rated data projector such as the Benq W770ST (£460.02).

We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the Benq MX842 (£573.44) is also worth considering.

Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The Optoma ML800 does not support full HD, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other projectors of this type and age also do not support full HD.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which also support full HD that you might want to consider including the Epson EH-TW5100 (£538.07); or the MX806 (£461.76), or the MW820ST (£459.99) both from Benq.

Projector

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Projectors that have been available for around the same time as this projector have projector brightnesses of between 800 ANSI lumens and 4,200 ANSI lumens. When compared to other projectors that are a similar age to this multimedia projector that we have checked, the projector brightness of the Optoma ML800 of only 800 ANSI lumens is one of the dimmest.

If this Optoma multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the Epson EH-TW5100 (£538.07) (1,800 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the Benq MS504 (£419.08) (3,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Across all 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as this projector the best resolution is 1080p (1920x1080) and the worst is SVGA (800x600).
