9 Reasons For
Optoma Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors
On average Optoma multimedia projectors have good ratings compared to other brands as do all projectors manufactured by Optoma.
Just Released Four Months Ago
This data projector has only been on the market for four months.
50Hz AC Input Frequency
This projector has a 50/60Hz AC input frequency, which is the most frequently found AC input frequency on comparable spec projectors that were launched in the last 12 months.
Supports Full HD Projection
The Optoma S341 supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the S341 do not support Full HD projection.
There are a number of alternative projectors which support Full HD projection currently available which you might want to look at including the H114, or the H183X ($429.26) both from Optoma or the Infocus SP1080 ($399.00) which has a better Rating.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The Optoma S341 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the S341 also have a built-in speaker.
We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the Optoma H114 which has a better Rating is also worth considering.
We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Optoma X340, or the Viewsonic PJD6250L ($392.99) is also worth considering.
Supports 3D Image Projection
The Optoma S341 supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that came out in the last year.
There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection currently available which you might also want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Optoma H114.
We compared all the other data projectors which also support 3D image projection to this projector and we think the Optoma X340, or the Viewsonic PJD6250L ($392.99) is also worth considering.
+4 More reasons for
Quite Low Power Consumption During PowerSave
With a power consumption during PowerSave of only 187 Watts, the Optoma S341 has one of the lower power consumption during PowerSave amongst projectors of this age. Across all the similar spec data projectors that were launched in the last 12 months the power consumption during PowerSave range from 0.4W to 480W.
With a width of only 298 millimeters, the Optoma S341 is one of the narrower recently released projectors amongst multimedia projectors of this age. Across all the latest multimedia projectors the widths range from 140mm to 590mm.
With a weight of only 2.2 kilograms, the Optoma S341 is one of the lighter similar spec data projectors that have been on the market for the last year amongst projectors of this age. The weights of recently released projectors range from 2.7g to 28kg, and the average weight is 7.2kg.
6 Reasons Against
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
The Optoma S341 does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth noting that most of the other multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the S341 also do not support WiFi connectivity.
We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the Sony MP-CL1 ($388.71), or the Vivitek Qumi Q6 ($379.99) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
Only SVGA (800x600) Native Projector Resolution
The highest resolution of the Optoma S341 is SVGA (800x600). That's 77% less resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution.
This projector's resolution (SVGA (800x600)) is in fact the worst resolution across all comparable spec projectors that have been around for a similar time to the S341.
A WUXGA (1920x1200) native projector resolution is the best resolution amongst similar types of projector.
There are a number of alternative data projectors that have a resolution of SVGA (800x600) currently available that you might also want to look at including the Optoma S312 which is cheaper.
If the resolution of this Optoma data projector is not high enough for you then you might want to look at the Optoma X340 (XGA (1024x768)), the Viewsonic PJD6250L ($392.99) (XGA (1024x768)), or the Acer X125H (XGA (1024x768)).
Very Small Uniformity
The average uniformity of similar spec projectors that were released in the last year is 82%, and the uniformities range from 70% to 90%. At only 75 percent, the Optoma S341 has a fairly small uniformity compared to most of the other latest multimedia projectors.
Very Small Lamp Power
The smallest lamp power of similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the S341 is 140W and the biggest is 470W. With a lamp power of only 195 Watts, the Optoma S341 has a fairly small lamp power compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the S341.
+3 More reasons against
Very Small Digital Zoom
Across all the multimedia projectors that were released in the last 12 months the digital zooms range from 1.1x to 16x. The Optoma S341 has a quite small digital zoom (only 1.1 times zoom factor) compared to most of the other recently released multimedia projectors.
Very Low RMS Rated Power
The Optoma S341 has a quite low RMS rated power (only 2 Watts) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the S341. Across all the latest comparable spec multimedia projectors the RMS rated power range from 1W to 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 7.9W.
1 Other reason to consider the Optoma S341
Average Projector Brightness
With a projector brightness of 3,500 ANSI lumens, the Optoma S341 has a fairly average projector brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were launched around the same time as the S341.
Alternative 3,500 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available that you might want to consider include the Infocus SP1080 ($399.00) which has a better Rating.

Running this projector over 5 years will generate 0.36 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 10 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
