9 Reasons For

Optoma Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

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

Supports WiFi Connectivity

The Optoma W305ST supports WiFi connectivity. Most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the W305ST do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which support WiFi connectivity to this multimedia projector and we think cheaper projectors such as the LG PW700 is also worth considering.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the Benq GP30 is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Unlike most of the other projectors that have been on the market for more than two years which do not have a built-in speaker, the Optoma W305ST has a built-in speaker.

There are a number of alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to consider including the GT1070, or the EH200ST ($926.99) both from Optoma or the Epson EH-TW6100 which has better reviews.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma W305ST supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other projectors that came out more than two years ago.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including the GT1070, or the EH200ST ($926.99) both from Optoma or the Epson EH-TW6100 which has better reviews.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Optoma W305ST is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by projectors of this age and type. This projector also supports a graphics resolution of 1280 x 800. The best resolution of all projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the W305ST is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

Most projectors of a similar age and type to the W305ST have between 1 and 11 VGA (D-Sub) ports, including the Optoma W305ST which has three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on projectors of a similar age and spec to it.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The weights of projectors of a comparable age and spec to the W305ST range from 2.7g to 26kg, and the average weight is 6.2kg. The Optoma W305ST is fairly light (only 2.6 kilograms) compared to most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the W305ST.

Chart Edit

Narrow

At only 288 millimeters, the Optoma W305ST is quite narrow compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for a similar time to the W305ST. Data projectors of a comparable age and type to the W305ST have widths of between 130mm and 750mm, and the average width is 380mm.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Optoma W305ST does not support Full HD projection, although keep in mind that most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the W305ST also do not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support Full HD projection to this multimedia projector and we think the GT1070, or the EH200ST ($926.99) both from Optoma or the Epson EH-TW6100 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Only Fixed Zoom Ratio

This projector supports a Fixed zoom ratio, which is typical of many projectors that came out more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Low Number of Colours

The Optoma W305ST has one of the lower numbers of colours (only 1.07 million) amongst similar spec projectors of this age. The lowest number of colours of multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the W305ST is 1M and the highest is 1,100M.

Chart Edit

Very Low RMS Rated Power

At only 2 Watts, the Optoma W305ST has a fairly low RMS rated power compared to most of the other data projectors of this age and spec. Projectors that were released more than two years ago have RMS rated power of between 1W and 30W.

4 Other reasons to consider the Optoma W305ST

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when this data projector was released.

Average Projector Brightness

The Optoma W305ST has a pretty average projector brightness (3,200 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to look at the Epson EB-1930 ($999.00) (4,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated) or the Optoma GT760 (3,400 ANSI lumens and cheaper).

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

The Optoma W305ST has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 51% less resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution.

Chart Edit

Average Noise Level

The Optoma W305ST has a fairly typical noise level (29 decibels) compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age.

If you are not concerned about having a louder noise level then you might also want to consider the Acer H7532 (29dB).
