6 Reasons For

Optoma Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

Projectors manufactured by Optoma have good ratings on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just projectors) and found that Optoma also has good ratings across its entire range.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the S312, the Optoma S312 supports 3D image projection.

Alternative projectors which support 3D image projection currently available that you might also want to consider include the Optoma W310[plb_2809879_price] which is cheaper; or the Viewsonic PJD5555[plb_2816556_price] which has better reviews.

We think you might also be interested in alternative multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Acer P1385W[plb_3021262_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma S312 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Viewsonic PJD5555[plb_2816556_price] which has better reviews; or the Optoma W310[plb_2809879_price] which is cheaper.

Other projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might want to look at include the Acer P1385W[plb_3021262_price].

Very High Number of Colours

With a number of colours of 1,073.4 million, the Optoma S312 has a fairly high number of colours compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that came out more than a year ago. The numbers of colours of comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the S312 range from 1M to 1,100M.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The average noise level of similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the S312 is 32dB, and the noise levels range from 21dB to 39dB. With a noise level of only 29 decibels, the Optoma S312 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the S312.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 29dB noise level data projectors currently available including cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Optoma W310[plb_2809879_price].

Projectors with a louder noise level that might also be worth considering include the Acer P1385W[plb_3021262_price] (30dB).

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to the S312, the Optoma S312 does not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection to this projector and we think the Infocus IN119HD[plb_2875969_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
