Optoma Data Projectors Have Good Reviews
Projectors produced by Optoma have good reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all data projectors (not just projectors) and found that Optoma also has good reviews across its entire range.
Has a Built-In Speaker
Like most of the other similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the W320UST, the W320UST has a built-in speaker.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Epson EB-536Wi which is cheaper; or the Benq SW921 ($1,653.95) which has better reviews.
Supports 3D Image Projection
The W320UST supports 3D image projection. Most of the other data projectors of this age and spec also support 3D image projection.
There are a number of alternative projectors which support 3D image projection currently available that you might also want to look at including the Benq SW921 ($1,653.95) which has better reviews.
Quite Bright Projector Brightness
Across all the projectors that were launched around the same time as the W320UST the projector brightness range from 500 ANSI lumens to 7,000 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 4,000 ANSI lumens, the W320UST has one of the brighter projector brightness amongst projectors of this age.
Data projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth looking at include the Benq SW921 ($1,653.95) (5,000 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution
The Optoma W320UST supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the W320UST. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this data projector. This Optoma multimedia projector also support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 1280 x 800 (WXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution
This projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is the most frequently found native projector resolution on data projectors that have been around for around the same time as it.
