14 Reasons For

Good 3D Picture Quality

A few Optoma DS330 reviewers said that it had a good 3D picture quality. Matt mentioned on Amazon “Is the best all round 3d projector in price range, by far” and scored it very highly. Matt also said “5000hr (set to bright mode) full 3d so you can watch sky3d, 3d blu-rays”.

Optoma Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

Optoma has good average ratings for its 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors as well as across its entire data projector range compared to other brands.

Easy to Use

A few people who reviewed it concluded that it was easy to use.

Good Picture Quality

One person who reviewed it wrote that it had good picture quality.

Good Product Quality

One person who bought it reckoned that it was good quality. Matt wrote on Amazon three years ago “Excellent picture quality, Brightness and Colour” and rated the Optoma DS330 5 stars.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma DS330 supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the DS330.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors which support 3D image projection and we think the Benq MW526[plb_2415513_price] which is cheaper; or the Benq TW523[plb_2029704_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.

Other data projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might also want to consider include the Benq MX819ST[plb_1552200_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago, the Optoma DS330 has a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker to this multimedia projector and we think a cheaper data projector such as the Benq MW526[plb_2415513_price], and the Optoma DX325[plb_1915714_price] or you might consider a higher scoring data projector such as the Benq TW523[plb_2029704_price] are also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

This projector supports a graphics resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA)|1280 x 1024 (SXGA)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA)|640 x 480 (VGA)|800 x 600 (SVGA), which is typical of many projectors of a similar type and age to it.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Number of Colours

The average number of colours of multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago is 700M. With a number of colours of 1,073.4 million, the Optoma DS330 has one of the higher numbers of colours amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Optoma DS330 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years. This multimedia projector is a three VGA (D-Sub) port projector compared to most of the 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the DS330 which only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on multimedia projectors of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Lamp Service Life

With a lamp service life of 4,500 hours, the Optoma DS330 has a fairly long lamp service life compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that were released around the same time as the DS330. The lamp service lives of 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago range from 2,500h to 20,000h, and the average lamp service life is 4,600h.

The average noise level of projectors of this age and spec is 33dB, and the noise levels range from 26dB to 40dB.

Other projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Benq MS517[plb_1463623_price] (32dB) which is also cheaper.

Chart Edit

Very Small Lamp Power

The smallest lamp power of projectors of a similar age and type to the DS330 is 190W and the biggest is 310W. At only 190 Watts, the Optoma DS330 has a quite small lamp power compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the DS330.

Chart Edit

3 Other reasons to consider the Optoma DS330

Released Over Three Years Ago

This data projector was released over three years ago.

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 2,800 ANSI lumens, the Optoma DS330 has a fairly standard projector brightness compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the DS330.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 2,800 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available including the Benq MS517[plb_1463623_price] which is cheaper.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to consider the Benq TW523[plb_2029704_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated) or the Benq MW526[plb_2415513_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens and cheaper).
