Optoma PT100 Video Projector Review
Don’t expect much from a $180 projector.
The Optoma PT100 is not particularly noisy. With an ambient room level of 34.8dB, the noise increased to 39.2dB with the projector on and in Bright Lamp mode. If you put the lamp in Standard Mode, the noise decreases only slightly.
The projector doesn't run very hot either. We found it only warmed the air by about 10°. Considering some projectors can heat up a room five times as much, the PT100 shouldn't cause many issues.
The projector also doesn't consume much in the way of electricity. Assuming average use, it'll run about $20 per year.
Optoma estimates that the lamp will run 5000 hours.
