9 Reasons For

Good Brand

Optoma 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good reviews on average and across all multimedia projectors Optoma is one of the better rated manufacturers.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma DS328 supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq MX522.

Light

With a weight of only 2.2 kilograms, the Optoma DS328 is one of the lighter data projectors that are a comparable age to the DS328 amongst 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The average weight of data projectors of a similar age and spec to the DS328 is 2.8kg, and the weights range from 1.3kg to 5.4kg.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the DS328, the Optoma DS328 does not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection including the MS504 ($308.99), or the MX505 both from Benq which also has a higher rating.
