8 Reasons For

Optoma Has Good Projector Reviews

Optoma is one of the better rated data projector manufacturers according to average user and expert reviews, and Optoma also has good ratings for its 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Most of the other one year old multimedia projectors have a built-in speaker, including the Optoma DX328.

There are a number of other projectors with a built-in speaker which you might want to consider including the W290, or the DW326 both from Optoma or the Benq MX823 which have a better Kagoo Rating™.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age, the Optoma DX328 supports 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection including a higher rated projector such as the W290, or the DW326 both from Optoma or the Benq MX823.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Optoma DX328 is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this projector). This Optoma data projector also support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA) and 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

This data projector's resolution (1600 x 1200 (UXGA)) is actually the best supported resolution across all projectors of this spec and age.

Across similar types of data projector the worst supported resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA).

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors that support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA), 640 x 480 (VGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA) which you might want to also look at including the DX325, or the DS311 both from Optoma which have a better Kagoo Rating™.

If you are looking for a projector with a higher resolution then you might want to also look at the Benq MS521 (800 x 600 (SVGA and higher rated),1600 x 1200 (UXGA and higher rated),640 x 480 (VGA and higher rated) and higher rated).

Has Four Preset Modes

The Optoma DX328 has a greater number of preset modes than most one year old comparable spec projectors. This multimedia projector has a sRGB preset mode, which is the most frequently found preset mode found on one year old 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors. The preset modes "Cinema", "Custom" and "Game" are also found on this data projector.

Chart Edit

Supports Seven Video Modes

The number of supported video mode on the Optoma DX328 is more than most 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are more than a year old. This data projector supports a 480p video mode, which is the most frequently supported video mode supported by projectors of this spec and age. The video modes "1080i", "1080p", "480i", "576i", "576p" and "720p" are also supported by this multimedia projector.

Chart Edit

Big Uniformity

With a uniformity of 85 percent, the Optoma DX328 has one of the bigger uniformities amongst similar spec multimedia projectors of this age. The smallest uniformity of comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the DX328 is 80%, the biggest is 85%, and the average uniformity is 83%.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level

The average noise level of comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the DX328 is 32dB, and the noise levels range from 26dB to 37dB. At only 26 decibels, the Optoma DX328 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other one year old 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

We think you might also be interested in different 26dB noise level data projectors including the Optoma DH1011 ($806.62) which have a better Kagoo Rating™.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most of the multimedia projectors of this type and age, including the Optoma DX328, do not support Full HD projection.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the MS512, the MS504 ($308.99), or the [pl_2619778] all from Benq are also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Optoma DX328 does not support WiFi connectivity, although this is within the context that most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the DX328 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Dim Projector Brightness

At only 2,800 ANSI lumens, the Optoma DX328 has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of this age and type. Across all the comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the DX328 the projector brightnesses range from 800 ANSI lumens to 4,200 ANSI lumens.

We think you might also be interested in alternative 2800 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors including a higher scoring data projector such as the DS328, or the W290 both from Optoma.

If you would prefer a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the DW326 (3000 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the DX346 (3000 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Optoma or the Benq MX522 ($560.13) (3000 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Quite Wide

The Optoma DX328 is one of the wider projectors of this age and spec (316 millimeters) amongst comparable spec multimedia projectors of this age. The narrowest comparable spec data projector that is older than a year is 260mm wide, the widest is 340mm, and the average width is 300mm.

Chart Edit

Quite Tall

With a height of 124 millimeters, the Optoma DX328 is one of the taller projectors of this age and type amongst comparable spec multimedia projectors of this age. Across all the 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the DX328 the heights range from 48mm to 240mm.

2 Other reasons to consider the Optoma DX328

Over a Year Old

This multimedia projector has been on the market for over a year.

XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution

This projector has a native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768), which is the most commonly found native projector resolution on 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are older than a year.

We compared all the other data projectors that have a resolution of XGA (1024x768) to this projector and we think a higher rated product such as the MX819ST ($596.99), and the MX768 ($1,899.00) both from Benq or the Optoma DX346 are also worth considering.

If the resolution of this projector is not high enough for you then you might want to also look at the [pl_2290217] (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated), or the MW769 ($1,099.00) (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated) both from Benq or the Acer X1383 (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated).
