Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma DS311 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other data projectors that are a comparable age to the DS311.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the MS619, or the MS504 ($308.99) both from Benq.

Quite Bright Lamp Power in Economic Mode

The dimmest lamp power in economic mode of data projectors of a similar age and type to the DS311 is 3,000W, the brightest is 10,000W, and the average lamp power in economic mode is 6,000W. The Optoma DS311 has one of the brighter lamp powers in economic mode (6,500 Watts) amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Uniformity

With a uniformity of 85 percent, the Optoma DS311 has one of the bigger uniformities amongst similar spec data projectors of this age. 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago have uniformities of between 80% and 130%.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago.
