Running Costs Are Very Low

The TL50W is one of the cheapest to run multimedia projectors that are more than a year old that we have looked at for 1 year running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the TL50W is only £47.

Optoma Has Good Multimedia Projector Reviews

Data projectors manufactured by Optoma are some of the better data projectors according to average reviews from experts and owners.

Over a Year Old

Optoma released the TL50W over a year ago.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma TL50W supports 3D image projection, unlike most of the other one year old 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which support 3D image projection including a better rated projector such as the Optoma TX762, or the Epson V11H475020.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most of the data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the TL50W, including the Optoma TL50W, do not support Full HD projection.

There are a number of alternative data projectors with a Full HD projection which you might want to consider including the D8800, or the D8300 both from Vivitek or the Hitachi CX-CW250WN.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the TL50W, including the Optoma TL50W, have a built-in speaker.

It is worth considering alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker including the V11H445320, or the 421i both from Epson which have a better Kagoo Rating™.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other projectors of this spec and age, the Optoma TL50W does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the Epson 421i, or the Hitachi CP-WX4022 (£860.69) are also worth considering.

Dim Projector Brightness

Projectors of this type and age have projector brightnesses of between 500 ANSI lumens and 8,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,400 ANSI lumens. When compared to other 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the TL50W that we have assessed, the projector brightness of the Optoma TL50W of only 500 ANSI lumens is one of the dimmest.

If you are looking for a data projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the V11H445320 (2200 ANSI lumens and higher rated), the EB-426Wi (2500 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the 421i (2500 ANSI lumens and higher rated) all from Epson.

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This data projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is the most commonly found native projector resolution on data projectors of a similar age and spec to it.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors that have a resolution of WXGA (1280x800) which you might want to also look at including a higher Kagoo Rating™ multimedia projector such as the V11H335121, or the V11H475020 both from Epson or the Panasonic PT-VW340 (£766.08).

1024 X 768 (XGA) Graphics Resolution

This projector supports graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 640 x 480 (VGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA), which is typical of many projectors of this age and spec.

If the resolution of this data projector is too low for you then you might want to consider the Optoma TX762 (1024 x 768 (XGA and higher rated), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA and higher rated), 1280 x 768 (WXGA and higher rated), 1280 x 800 (WXGA and higher rated), 1360 x 768 (WXGA and higher rated), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+ and higher rated), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA and higher rated), 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080 and higher rated), 640 x 480 (VGA and higher rated), 800 x 600 (SVGA and higher rated) and higher rated), the LG BC775 (1024 x 768 (XGA and higher rated), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA and higher rated), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+ and higher rated), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA and higher rated), 640 x 480 (VGA and higher rated), 800 x 600 (SVGA and higher rated) and higher rated), or the Epson 421i (1280 x 960, 1366 x 768, 1024 x 768 (XGA and higher rated), 1152 x 864 (XGA+ and higher rated), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA and higher rated), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+ and higher rated), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+ and higher rated), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA and higher rated), 640 x 480 (VGA and higher rated), 800 x 600 (SVGA and higher rated) and higher rated).
