8 Reasons For

Good Brand

Optoma is one of the superior projector manufacturers according to average reviews from users and experts, and Optoma also has good ratings for its 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma X300 supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to the X300.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors which support 3D image projection and we think the Viewsonic PJD5234[plb_1481513_price] which is cheaper; or the Epson EH-TW5200[plb_1732117_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Infocus IN2124A[plb_2194105_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma X300 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the X300.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Epson EH-TW5200[plb_1732117_price] which has better reviews; or the Viewsonic PJD5234[plb_1481513_price] which is cheaper.

Other projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might want to look at include the Infocus IN2124A[plb_2194105_price].

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

This projector supports a graphics resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA)|1280 x 1024 (SXGA)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA)|640 x 480 (VGA)|800 x 600 (SVGA), which is typical of many projectors of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The Optoma X300 has a fairly long service life of lamp in economic mode (6,500 hours) compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the X300. Comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the X300 have service life of lamp in economic mode of between 3,000h and 20,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 5,900h.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level

Across all the projectors of this age and spec the noise levels range from 26dB to 40dB, and the average noise level is 33dB. At only 28 decibels, the Optoma X300 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type.

Multimedia projectors with a louder noise level that might also be worth considering include the PJD5234[pl_1481513_price] (32dB and cheaper), the PJD5132[pl_1527047_price] (32dB and cheaper), or the PJD5134[pl_1527048_price] (32dB and cheaper) all from Viewsonic.

Very Narrow

15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago have widths of between 230mm and 750mm. With a width of only 286 millimeters, the Optoma X300 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the X300.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The lightest similar spec multimedia projector that is a comparable age to the X300 is 1.3kg heavy, the heaviest is 27kg, and the average weight is 6.6kg. With a weight of only 2.1 kilograms, the Optoma X300 is one of the lighter projectors of a comparable age and spec to the X300 amongst projectors of this age.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most projectors that were launched more than two years ago do not support Full HD projection. The Optoma X300 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

It is worth considering alternative multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Epson EH-TW5200[plb_1732117_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Optoma X300 does not support WiFi connectivity, although keep in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the X300 is 4,200 ANSI lumens. The Optoma X300 has a quite dim projector brightness (only 2,800 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the X300.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other 2,800 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors and we think cheaper projectors such as the PJD5234[pl_1481513_price], the PJD5132[pl_1527047_price], and the PJD5134[pl_1527048_price] all from Viewsonic is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the IN116A[pl_2100766_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens), or the IN112A[pl_2178166_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens) both from Infocus which also has a higher rating.

Very Small Lamp Power

With a lamp power of only 190 Watts, the Optoma X300 has a quite small lamp power compared to most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the X300. Across all the multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the X300 the lamp power range from 190W to 2,400W.

Chart Edit

Very Small Uniformity

At only 80 percent, the Optoma X300 has a fairly small uniformity compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the X300. Multimedia projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the X300 have uniformities of between 80% and 90%.
