It was October 2015 when this Optoma projector was released.


Energy

Running Costs Are OK

The WU515 has an average 1 year running cost of £140 based on average usage levels and energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 115 projectors of a similar age and spec.


Video

Supports Full HD

The Optoma WU515 supports full HD, as do most of the other projectors of this age and type.

It is worth also looking at other projectors which also support full HD including the Optoma WU515T (£2,853.60), or the Hitachi CP-WU8600 (£3,385.20).

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma WU515 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to this data projector.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Hitachi CP-WX8650 (£2,445.60) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) which you might want to consider including the Hitachi CP-WX8750 (£2,798.40), or the Optoma WU515T (£2,853.60).

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 6,000 ANSI lumens, the Optoma WU515 has one of the brighter projector brightnesses amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The projector brightnesses of data projectors that were released around the same time as this multimedia projector range from 600 ANSI lumens to 16,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,100 ANSI lumens.

If you would prefer a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the Hitachi CP-WX8650 (£2,445.60) (6,500 ANSI lumens and cheaper).
