Why Has it Scored 72?

Optoma is an excellent projector brand.
It is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer, better multimedia projectors are available.
This projector has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Has a handheld remote control
Supports 3D
Green solutions
Dynamic mode
Eco AV mute
Rapid off
Quick resume
Audio performance

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each projector by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age, value for money and running costs.

The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the projector is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec projectors come to market, the older projectors will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.
