7 Reasons For

Good Product Quality

A few customers who bought this projector thought it was good quality. Andyb wrote in their Canon S-300 review on Amazon “Typical (excellent) Canon quality”. Mr S.d. Watts wrote in his Canon S-300 review on Amazon a few weeks ago “Good quality for PowerPoint presentations”.

Acceptable Noise Level

One Canon S-300 reviewer who reviewed the Canon S-300 thought it was quiet. Andyb mentioned “It was virtually silent, with hardly any fan noise at all” and rated the product 5 stars.

Canon Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

We checked the user and expert reviews of hundreds of multimedia projectors to determine an average rating for each multimedia projector manufacturer. On average projectors made by Canon have good reviews from owners and experts.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Canon S-300 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the S-300.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker to this multimedia projector and we think because of it's better review score, the DELL S500 ($180.91) is also worth considering.

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The average noise level of projectors that were released around the same time as the S-300 is 35dB. The Canon S-300 has a fairly quiet noise level (only 35 decibels) compared to most of the other 2300:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the S-300.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The weights of data projectors of this spec and age range from 2.4kg to 7.3kg. With a weight of only 2.5 kilograms, the Canon S-300 is one of the lighter similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago amongst 2300:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Narrow

The narrowest projector of this age and spec is 280mm wide, the widest is 450mm, and the average width is 320mm. The Canon S-300 is fairly narrow (only 282 millimeters) compared to most of the other 2300:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Canon S-300 does not support 3D image projection, although it is worth noting that most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the S-300 also do not support 3D image projection.

Other data projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might also want to look at include the DELL S500 ($180.91) which is also higher rated.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Canon S-300 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the S-300 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the DELL S500 ($180.91).

The highest resolution of the Canon S-300 is SVGA (800x600). That's 53% less resolution than the most frequently found native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800). Across all multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years the resolution ranges from VGA (640x480) to DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).

Chart Edit

Very Small Lamp Power

With a lamp power of only 190 Watts, the Canon S-300 has one of the smaller lamp power amongst 2300:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. Across all the multimedia projectors of this type and age the lamp power range from 190W to 280W, and the average lamp power is 210W.

Chart Edit

Very Low RMS Rated Power

Multimedia projectors of this age and spec have RMS rated power of between 2W and 16W. With an RMS rated power of only 2 Watts, the Canon S-300 has a fairly low RMS rated power compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the S-300.

Chart Edit

Very High Power Consumption During PowerSave

When compared to other multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the S-300 that we have checked, the Canon S-300's power consumption during PowerSave of 275 Watts is one of the highest. Comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the S-300 have power consumption during PowerSave of between 6W and 280W, and the average power consumption during PowerSave is 180W.

Chart Edit

Very Small Digital Zoom

The digital zooms of 2300:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to the S-300 range from 2x to 4x. The Canon S-300 has a quite small digital zoom (only 2 times zoom factor) compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were released around the same time as the S-300.

Chart Edit

There are a number of other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available that you might want to look at including because of it's better review score, the Canon WX.
