8 Reasons For

Optoma Projectors Have Good Reviews

Optoma is one of the better rated data projector manufacturers according to average expert and user reviews, and Optoma also has good reviews for its 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Supports 3D

The Optoma X501 supports 3D. Most of the other projectors of this spec and age also support 3D.

We compared all the other projectors which support 3D to this projector and we think cheaper projectors such as the Optoma W501[plb_2057845_price] is also worth considering.
