8 Reasons For

Good Brand

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

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma DX345 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other 18000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the DX345 also support 3D image projection.

Alternative projectors which support 3D image projection currently available that you might also want to look at include because of it's better review score, the Optoma X305[plb_1726305_price].

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The Optoma DX345 supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution supported by projectors of this age and type. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this multimedia projector. This Optoma multimedia projector also support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA) and 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

A 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) graphics resolution is in fact the best supported resolution across all multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago.

The worst supported resolution amongst comparable types of projector is 640 x 480 (VGA).
