10 Reasons For

Good Brand

On average Optoma 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good reviews compared to other manufacturers as do all projectors produced by Optoma.

Supports 3D

Unlike most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the TX762 which do not support 3D, the Optoma TX762 supports 3D.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors which support 3D currently available including because of it's better review score, the NEC NP-M311W[plb_1525270_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago, the Optoma TX762 has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Epson V11H475020[plb_2123586_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

The projector brightnesss of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the TX762 range from 100 ANSI lumens to 8,000 ANSI lumens. The Optoma TX762 has one of the brighter projector brightnesss (4,000 ANSI lumens) amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the Optoma TX762 is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's 8% more resolution than the most frequently found supported graphics resolutions of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) (which is also supported by this Optoma multimedia projector). In addition, this data projector support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 640 x 480 (VGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). The resolution of all 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the TX762 ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

We compared all the other 31dB noise level projectors to this multimedia projector and we think the Optoma TW610STi[plb_1749808_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

Most data projectors of this age and spec do not support full HD. The Optoma TX762 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which also support full HD that you might also want to consider including the Epson 475Wi[plb_1778250_price], or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A[plb_1884022_price].

We compared this data projector to all the other data projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the Epson BrightLink 436Wi[plb_1875520_price] is also worth considering.
