Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to this multimedia projector, the Optoma ZH300UW does not support full HD.

It is worth also looking at alternative projectors which also support full HD including the Sony VPL-FHZ57 (£3,533.20), or the Hitachi CP-WU8600 (£3,385.20) which is also cheaper.

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma ZH300UW has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age 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-WU8600 (£3,385.20) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Expensive

After checking the price of 95 projectors of a similar type and age they range in price from £322 to £17,341. We think that this Optoma projector looks expensive compared to other projectors of a similar type and age.


Performance

Average Noise Level

At 32 decibels, the ZH300UW has a pretty average noise level compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to this projector.

If you are not bothered about having a louder noise level then you might want to consider the Sony VPL-FHZ57 (£3,533.20) (28dB), or the Hitachi CP-WU8600 (£3,385.20) (35dB) which is also cheaper.
