WUXGA (1920x1200) Resolution

The Optoma WU1500 has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of the most frequently found projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

This projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is in fact the best resolution across all 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched in the last 12 months.

Across similar types of projector the worst resolution is WXGA (1280x800).

Video

Supports Full HD

The Optoma WU1500 supports full HD. Most of the other latest 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors do not support full HD.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative projectors which support full HD currently available including because of its better review score, the Viewsonic Pro8800wul (£1,499).

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the Viewsonic PRO8530HDL (£1,243.82) is also worth considering.

3D-Ready
