5 Reasons For

Optoma Projectors Have Good Reviews

Based on 1,709 expert and user reviews, Optoma has good reviews for its multimedia projectors. Optoma also has good reviews specifically for its 18000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors compared to other manufacturers.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The Optoma DS340E supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this multimedia projector). This Optoma projector also support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA) and 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

This projector's resolution (1600 x 1200 (UXGA)) is actually the best supported resolution amongst all multimedia projectors of this age and type.

Amongst comparable types of projector the worst supported resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Quite High Number of Colours

Across all the 18000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than a year ago the numbers of colours range from 1,000M to 1,100M. At 1,073.4 million, the Optoma DS340E has a quite high number of colours compared to most of the other data projectors that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Very Light

18000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for more than a year have weights of between 2.3kg and 4.9kg. The Optoma DS340E is one of the lighter similar spec data projectors that came out around the same time as the DS340E (only 2.4 kilograms) amongst comparable spec multimedia projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption in Economy Mode

The lowest power consumption in economy mode of projectors of a similar spec and age to the DS340E is 190W and the highest is 200W. The Optoma DS340E has a quite low power consumption in economy mode (only 193 Watts) compared to most of the other 18000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the DS340E.

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Optoma DS340E does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than a year also do not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support Full HD projection to this data projector and we think the EH319USTI ($1,838.00), the DH1011i, or the EH319UST ($1,497.00) all from Optoma is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Optoma DS340E does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other 18000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the DS340E also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Only SVGA (800x600) Native Projector Resolution

The Optoma DS340E has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 39% less resolution than the most frequently found native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768). Similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the DS340E native projector resolutions range from nHD (640x360) to DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).

Chart Edit

Very Dim Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of only 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Optoma DS340E has one of the dimmer projector brightness amongst similar spec projectors of this age. The dimmest projector brightness of data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the DS340E is 3,000 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 3,600 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,300 ANSI lumens.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available including the Optoma DX342 which has better reviews.

If you want a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the DH1011i (3,200 ANSI lumens), the X319UST (3,200 ANSI lumens), or the X319USTir (3,200 ANSI lumens) all from Optoma.

Very Small Lamp Power

The Optoma DS340E has one of the smaller lamp power (only 190 Watts) amongst projectors of this age. Multimedia projectors of this age and type have lamp power of between 190W and 260W, and the average lamp power is 210W.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

Most projectors of a comparable spec and age to the DS340E have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, including the Optoma DS340E which has one VGA (D-Sub) port.

Chart Edit

Very Small Optical Zoom

At only 1.1 times zoom factor, the Optoma DS340E has a quite small optical zoom compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec. The smallest optical zoom of projectors that came out around the same time as the DS340E is 1x and the biggest is 2x.

Chart Edit

Very Small Matrix Size

Data projectors of a similar age and type to the DS340E have matrix sizes of between 0.55" and 0.65". With a matrix size of only 0.55 inches, the Optoma DS340E has a quite small matrix size compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were released one year ago.

2 Other reasons to consider the Optoma DS340E

Released Over a Year Ago

This multimedia projector was released over a year ago.

Average Noise Level

At 29 decibels, the Optoma DS340E has a fairly standard noise level compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age.

There are a number of other 29dB noise level projectors currently available that you might also want to consider including the Optoma DX342 which has better reviews.

Other projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the W350 (29dB), or the DH1011i (29dB) both from Optoma.
