ZW212ST

BY TONY HOFFMAN
The Optoma ZW212ST $4,103.00 at Amazon is a short-throw projector that’s able to project a large image despite being very close to the screen. It uses a hybrid light engine, which uses a combination of LEDs and lasers combined with a DLP chip, such as we’ve seen in recent Casio projectors such as the Casio XJ-H2650 $2,049.00 at Abe’s of Maine. The ZW212ST costs more up front than many comparable projectors that use conventional bulbs, but its light source is very long-lasting, so it’s unlikely you’ll ever have to replace the lamp.
