Optoma Introduces Lamp-Free, LED/LASER Display Projector, with 20,000 Hours Life

Optoma has recently introduced two projector models – ZW212ST (2500 Lumens) and ZX212ST (2300 Lumens) that are Lamp-Free and contain LED/LASER display as light-source with a life of 20,000 hours (according to the spec sheet). When compared to normal projectors which have a lamp-life of 3000/4000 hours, this does seem very impressive. The cost, $1599 and $1499 MRP (respectively) seem to be somewhat high, but if the lamp-source gives anything close to the advertised 20,000 hours, the projector might still offer excellent value.


  • Two models: ZW212ST/ZX212ST
  • Brightness: 2500 Lumens/2300 Lumens
  • Resolution: WXGA (1280 x 800)/XGA (1024 x 768)
  • Light Source: LED/LASER Hybrid, 20,000 hours light-source life
  • Display technology: Single 0.65″/0.55″ DMD DLP technology
  • Warranty: 3-Years/10,000 hours for Light-Soruce

The detailed specs for ZW212ST can be found here and the detailed specs for ZX212ST can be found here.
