6 Reasons For

Optoma Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

Optoma has good average reviews for its 18000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors as well as across its entire projector range compared to other manufacturers.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Optoma DS346I supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other 18000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for the last year do not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other 18000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the DS346I, the Optoma DS346I supports 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other projectors that were released in the last year, the Optoma DS346I has a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Very Long Lamp Service Life

The Optoma DS346I has one of the longest lamp service lives (7,000 hours) amongst 18000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age. The average lamp service life of 18000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the DS346I is 4,500h, and the lamp service lives range from 3,000h to 7,000h.

Chart Edit

Very Light

With a weight of only 2.4 kilograms, the Optoma DS346I is fairly light compared to most of the other 18000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out in the last year. The weights of latest 18000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors range from 2.3kg to 4.9kg, and the average weight is 3.2kg.

Chart Edit

10 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Optoma DS346I does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other recently released 18000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Only SVGA (800x600) Native Projector Resolution

The Optoma DS346I has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 53% less resolution than the most common native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

This projector's resolution (SVGA (800x600)) is in fact the worst resolution amongst all new projectors.

Amongst comparable types of projector the best resolution is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).

Very Dim Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of only 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Optoma DS346I has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other 18000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the DS346I. Latest comparable spec data projectors have projector brightness of between 3,000 ANSI lumens and 3,400 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,200 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Very Low Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

With a maximum horizontal synchronization of only 91.1 kilohertz, the Optoma DS346I has one of the lower maximum horizontal synchronization amongst multimedia projectors of this age. The lowest maximum horizontal synchronization of data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the DS346I is 91kHz and the highest is 110kHz.

Chart Edit

Very Low RMS Rated Power

With an RMS rated power of only 2 Watts, the Optoma DS346I has a fairly low RMS rated power compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been around for the last year. Across all the newly released 18000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors the RMS rated power range from 2W to 16W, and the average RMS rated power is 9.1W.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

The Optoma DS346I is a one VGA (D-Sub) port data projector. Most of the other projectors that have been around for a similar time to the DS346I have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Very Low Maximum Vertical Synchronization

The average maximum vertical synchronization of projectors that came out around the same time as the DS346I is 60kHz, and the maximum vertical synchronization range from 0.085kHz to 120kHz. The Optoma DS346I has a quite low maximum vertical synchronization (only 0.085 kilohertz) compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the DS346I.

Chart Edit

Only One HDMI Port

Most recently released similar spec data projectors have one HDMI port, including the Optoma DS346I which has one HDMI port.

Chart Edit

Only One Built-In Speaker

Most similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the DS346I have one built-in speaker, including the Optoma DS346I which has one built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Very Small Matrix Size

The smallest matrix size of comparable spec projectors that were launched in the last 12 months is 0.55", the biggest is 0.65", and the average matrix size is 0.64". At only 0.55 inches, the Optoma DS346I has a quite small matrix size compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that came out around the same time as the DS346I.
