Does Not Support Full HD

The Optoma TX762 does not support full HD, although it is worth noting that most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as this data projector also do not support full HD.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support full HD which you might want to consider including the Epson 475Wi, or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A.

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma TX762 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other data projectors of this type and age also have a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Epson V11H475020 which has better reviews.

Projector

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 4,000 ANSI lumens, the Optoma TX762 has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors that have been available for a similar time to this multimedia projector. 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago have projector brightnesses of between 100 ANSI lumens and 7,000 ANSI lumens.

If you would prefer a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the Epson EB-1930 (£699) (4,200 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.

Quite Quiet Noise Level

With a noise level of only 31 decibels, the Optoma TX762 has one of the quieter noise levels amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. Across all the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to this data projector the noise levels range from 25dB to 45dB, and the average noise level is 35dB.

We compared this projector to all the other 31dB noise level multimedia projectors and we think because of its better review score, the Optoma TW610STi is also worth considering.
