These days, having a reliable projector is becoming harder to select as many projectors are available in the market.
Also, the price of full HD 1080p models has gone down due to the easy availability of 4k models.
In this article, we bring you the EH412st which not only delivers the true 1920×1080 picture quality but can also be used for multiple working purposes.
So, with multiple features and full HD 1080p resolution, we bring you the full details on the Optoma EH412st review guide.
Main Specs Of Optoma EH412ST Review
This model provides a resolution of Full HD of 1920 x 1080p and also supports the 4k content with the help of the HDR feature.
This device will provide clear images even in brighter conditions due to its high power lumens of 4000ANSI.
So, it can be used in classrooms, business meetings, churches, houses, etc. Also, it provides a deeper black level scene due to a contrast ratio of 50,000:1.
The company also claims there will be no fading and colors will be accurate on-screen whether you are projecting movies, graphs, or games due to its color wheel and 10-bit color processing feature.
If you are shorter in space as a classroom, bedroom, or business meeting place then this projector will project the image of 100″ inches just 4 feet away.
Setup & Installation Process
Right out of the box I quickly place the EH412ST on the table because I want to test the image quality. The projector was placed 4.4 feet away and got an image size of 120″ inches and I have to manually adjust the picture according to my screen.
But if you are going to mount the projector on the ceiling then it will take a lot of time to adjust the image with focus zoom to fine-tune image clarity.
The weight of the Optoma EH412ST is less than 7 pounds so you will not have a hard time lifting the unit if you want to take it with you for office work.
The quality of the audio I would say was better than other models in this price range of $1000. So it has 10-watt integrated speakers which will give enough if you are using it in the classroom, meetings, training classes, etc.
But if you have set up this device in your living room then I would suggest you connect this model with an external speaker to get a cinematic experience.
For connectivity, you will be getting multiple connection options to connect different devices to run on the bigger screen. There are VGA in and out, 2 x HDMI, audio-in and out, USB-A, and RS232 options.
- Lumen’s power of 4000 lets you use it in brighter conditions.
- It also supports 4k content with the help of HDR technology.
- Multiple connectivity options let you connect USB, HDMI, Audio ports, etc.
- Acceptable sound quality.
- Longer lamp life of 15,000 running in low power mode.
- No wifi or Bluetooth feature in a price tag of above $700.
- The keystone and zoom focus cannot be adjusted automatically.
- You cannot place the projector too close to the screen as the white light will be brighter in a darker room due to 4000 bulb power.
Can I Use Optoma EH412ST For Gaming Purposes?
No, you cannot use it for gaming purpose due to its higher lag time of more than 36ms. Also, if you see anyone claiming that you can use it either he has not used and he is giving bluff reviews.
Will This Model Gets Heated When Running For a Longer Period Of Time?
Yes, it will get heated when running for more than 3 hours at a high brightness level. But the internal fan system will cool down the heating.
But the fan noise will be much louder if you are using the internal audio system of Optoma and you can hear it easily if you are sitting close to the projector.
The Optoma EH412ST is perfect for use in multiple locations where you don’t have control over the lighting system. Also, the build quality is solid and it can be placed anywhere you like to project the images on the screen.
So, if you are looking for decent speakers, clear image quality, and has short throw ratio where space is a problem then Optoma EH412ST is an ideal choice for you.
