10 Reasons For

Optoma Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

We calculated the average reviews for all Optoma projectors and also specifically for Optoma multimedia projectors and found that in both cases Optoma had good reviews.

Supports Full HD

The Optoma ZU650 supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been available for more than a year do not support full HD.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other multimedia projectors which support full HD currently available including because of it's better review score, the Sony VPL-VW600ES, or the LG PF1500G.

Supports 3D

The Optoma ZU650 supports 3D. Most of the other multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the ZU650 also support 3D.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors which support 3D currently available including the Viewsonic PJD5150, or the Sony VPL-VW600ES which has better reviews.

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the ZU650 is 3,400 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightnesss range from 37 ANSI lumens to 8,200 ANSI lumens. The Optoma ZU650 has a quite bright projector brightness (6,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the ZU650.

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to look at the PT-DZ780 (£6,767.66) (7,000 ANSI lumens), or the PT-DW750 (£4,411.20) (7,000 ANSI lumens) both from Panasonic.

WUXGA (1920x1200) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the Optoma ZU650 is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) projector, which is the most common resolution.

A WUXGA (1920x1200) projector native resolution is actually the best resolution across all data projectors of this type and age.

The worst resolution amongst comparable types of projector is SVGA (800x600).

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the Optoma ZU650 is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by comparable spec projectors that came out more than a year ago.

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) supported graphics resolutions is in fact the best supported resolution across all multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the ZU650.

The worst supported resolution across comparable types of multimedia projector is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Quite Big Matrix Size

At 0.67 inches, the Optoma ZU650 has a fairly big matrix size compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that were launched more than a year ago. Across all the multimedia projectors that were released one year ago the matrix sizes range from 0.45" to 0.74", and the average matrix size is 0.6".

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp

The average service life of lamp of multimedia projectors that have been around for more than a year is 7,400h. At 20,000 hours, the Optoma ZU650 has a quite long service life of lamp compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the ZU650.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Optical Zoom

At 1.9 times zoom factor, the Optoma ZU650 has a fairly big optical zoom compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec. Across all the multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the ZU650 the optical zooms range from 1.1x to 12x.

Chart Edit

Very Bright Projector Brightness (economic Mode)

The dimmest projector brightness (economic mode) of multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the ZU650 is 1,500 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 5,000 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness (economic mode) of 5,000 ANSI lumens, the Optoma ZU650 has a very bright projector brightness (economic mode) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the ZU650.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the ZU650 have a built-in speaker(s), however the Optoma ZU650 does not have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Viewsonic PJD5150 which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most data projectors of a similar age and spec to the ZU650 do not support wi-Fi. The Optoma ZU650 is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

We compared this data projector to all the other data projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the Vivitek Qumi Q6 (£327.65) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

High Running Costs

Based on average energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the ZU650 will cost £180 over 1 year to run, which makes it one of the less economic to run data projectors of a similar spec and age.

Only One HDMI Ports Quantity

The Optoma ZU650 is a one HDMI ports quantity multimedia projector.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level (economic Mode)

Across all the projectors that are a similar age to the ZU650 the noise level (economic mode)s range from 21dB to 36dB, and the average noise level (economic mode) is 29dB. At 33 decibels, the Optoma ZU650 has a quite loud noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Very Heavy

When compared to other multimedia projectors that were released more than a year ago, the Optoma ZU650's weight of 18 kilograms is one of the heaviest. Projectors of this age and spec have weights of between 9.7g and 18kg.

2 Other reasons to consider the Optoma ZU650

Released Over a Year Ago

Optoma released the ZU650 over a year ago.

Average Noise Level

The Optoma ZU650 has a relatively average noise level (35 decibels) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the ZU650.

If you are not worried about having a louder noise level then you might also want to look at the NEC V332X (£461.04) (35dB).
