8 Reasons For

Good Brand

Multimedia projectors produced by Optoma generally have good reviews compared to other manufacturers.

Supports 3D

The Optoma W505 supports 3D, unlike most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to the W505 which do not support 3D.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors which support 3D currently available including the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the W505, the Optoma W505 has a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the Optoma W505 is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of the most common supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this multimedia projector). In addition, this Optoma 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 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). The best resolution of all 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out more than two years ago is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

The Optoma W505 has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than a XGA (1024x768) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution. Across all comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the W505 the resolution ranges from XGA (1024x768) (worst) to WUXGA (1920x1200) (best).

Chart Edit

Quite Big Bulb Power

With a bulb power of 370 Watts, the Optoma W505 has a quite big bulb power compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the W505. The average bulb power of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the W505 is 320W, and the bulb powers range from 170W to 4,000W.

Chart Edit

Two Audio (L,R) Ins

Most projectors of this spec and age have between one and two audio (L,R) ins, including the Optoma W505 which has two audio (L,R) ins.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on data projectors that have been available for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The Optoma W505 does not support full HD. Most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the W505 also do not support full HD.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector[plb_3156294_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Optoma W505 does not support wi-Fi, although keep in mind that most of the other projectors of this type and age also do not support wi-Fi.

Other projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might want to consider include the Epson PowerLite 1761W[plb_1735741_price], or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro[plb_1759924_price].

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp

The average service life of lamp of projectors of this spec and age is 5,200h, and the service life of lamps range from 200h to 30,000h. The Optoma W505 has one of the shorter service life of lamps (only 1,500 hour) amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The lightest comparable spec data projector that has been around for more than two years is 370g heavy, the heaviest is 23kg, and the average weight is 6.5kg. With a weight of 8.6 kilograms, the Optoma W505 is quite heavy compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for more than two years.

Other 5,200 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available that you might also want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Sony VPLFH36/W[plb_1477017_price].

If you want a data projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the Panasonic PT-EX510[plb_2584403_price] (5,300 ANSI lumens).
