11 Reasons For

Optoma Has Good Projector Reviews

15000:1 contrast ratio projectors built by Optoma have good ratings on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors) and found that Optoma also has good ratings across its entire range.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the W307, the Optoma W307 supports 3D image projection.

Other projectors which support 3D image projection currently available that you might also want to look at include the EH300[pl_1727047_price], the W306[pl_1726310_price], or the ML1500[pl_2473687_price] all from Optoma which is cheaper.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma W307 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the W307.

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker to this data projector and we think the EH300[pl_1727047_price], the W306[pl_1726310_price], and the ML1500[pl_2473687_price] all from Optoma which is cheaper is also worth considering.

2 Other reasons to consider the Optoma W307

Released Over Three Years Ago

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

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,500 ANSI lumens, the Optoma W307 has a pretty average projector brightness compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the W307.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 3,500 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the W306[pl_1726310_price], or the EH300[pl_1727047_price] both from Optoma which is cheaper.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to consider the X401[pl_1995677_price] (4,000 ANSI lumens), or the EW400[pl_2272302_price] (4,000 ANSI lumens) both from Optoma which also has a higher rating.
