7 Reasons For

Optoma Projectors Have Good Reviews

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

Just Released Six Months Ago

This multimedia projector is one of the latest projectors to be released. As such it is likely to have more advanced features than some of the older projectors.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma W303ST supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other 18000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the W303ST.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection currently available that you might also want to look at including the Optoma DH1012[plb_3806981_price] which is cheaper.

We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also support 3D image projection including the W354[pl_3862693_price], or the W319UST[pl_3109282_price] both from Optoma.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma W303ST has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other recently released 18000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors.

There are a number of alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to look at including cheaper projectors such as the Optoma DH1012[plb_3806981_price].

There are a number of other projectors which also have a built-in speaker which you might want to consider including the W354[pl_3862693_price], or the W319UST[pl_3109282_price] both from Optoma.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Optoma W303ST is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution supported by data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the W303ST. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this Optoma projector. In addition, this data projector support graphics resolutions of 800 x 600 (SVGA), 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA).

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) graphics resolution is actually the best supported resolution across all data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the W303ST.

A 640 x 480 (VGA) graphics resolution is the worst supported resolution amongst similar types of projector.

Chart Edit

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most comparable spec data projectors that came out around the same time as the W303ST do not support Full HD projection. The Optoma W303ST is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Optoma DH1012[plb_3806981_price].
