15 Reasons For

Optoma Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

Optoma 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good ratings on average and across all multimedia projectors Optoma is one of the better rated manufacturers.

Supports 3D

The Optoma WU515 supports 3D, unlike most of the other data projectors that have been around for more than a year which do not support 3D.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors which support 3D and we think cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Optoma EH515T[plb_3108718_price] is also worth considering.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which also support 3D which you might also want to look at including the Optoma WU515T[plb_3108720_price].

Supports Full HD

Unlike most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the WU515 which do not support full HD, the Optoma WU515 supports full HD.

Alternative data projectors which support full HD currently available which you might also want to look at include the Optoma EH515T[plb_3108718_price] which is cheaper.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the Optoma WU515T[plb_3108720_price], or the Sony VPL-FHZ57[plb_3221057_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma WU515 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors of this spec and age also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Optoma EH515T[plb_3108718_price] is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in alternative multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Optoma WU515T[plb_3108720_price].

Chart Edit

Not Cheap

The price range of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than a year ago is from £179 to £6,917. We think that this projector looks expensive compared to other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than a year ago.

High Running Costs

Based on average usage levels and energy prices we estimate that the 1 year running cost of the WU515 is £147, which makes it one of the less economic to run 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than a year ago.

Very Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

At only 4,000 hours, the Optoma WU515 has a quite short service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been on the market for more than a year. Across all the similar spec multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the WU515 the service life of lamp (economic mode)s range from 1,000h to 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp (economic mode) is 7,700h.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp

At only 3,000 hours, the Optoma WU515 has a fairly short service life of lamp compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age. Across all the comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the WU515 the service life of lamps range from 1,500h to 30,000h.
