Video

Supports Full HD

The Optoma X515 supports full HD, as do most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as this projector.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors which support full HD and we think because of their better review scores, the Optoma DH1017, the Acer H6510BD (£519.99), and the Benq W1070+ are also worth considering.

Projector

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of data projectors of a comparable age and type to this data projector is 4,100 ANSI lumens. The Optoma X515 has one of the brighter projector brightnesses (6,500 ANSI lumens) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to consider the PT-DW830E (£6,064.80) (8,500 ANSI lumens), or the PT-DX100 (£6,758.40) (10,000 ANSI lumens) both from Panasonic.

Average Noise Level

The Optoma X515 has a pretty average noise level (33 decibels) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as this multimedia projector.

If you are not worried about having a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Vivitek D755WT (£729) (33dB), or the Acer P1510 (£399.99) (33dB).
