Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The Optoma W515 does not support full HD. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as this projector do support full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which also support full HD to this projector and we think the EH515 (£1,950), or the EH515T (£2,010.40) both from Optoma or the Panasonic PT-FZ570 (£2,038.80) are also worth considering.

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma W515 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to this multimedia projector.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Hitachi CP-WU5505 (£1,662.35) is also worth considering.

There are a number of other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might want to look at including the Epson EB-1430Wi (£1,923.24), or the Optoma EH515 (£1,950).

Energy

Very High Running Costs

Based on typical usage levels and energy prices we estimate that the W515 will cost £140 over 1 year to run, which makes it one of the least economic to run multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type.

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

Projectors that were released more than a year ago have projector brightnesses of between 600 ANSI lumens and 16,000 ANSI lumens. At 6,000 ANSI lumens, the Optoma W515 has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to this data projector.
