9 Reasons For

Good Brand

On average data projectors made by Optoma are rated 88 out of 100, which is in the top 22% of all projector manufacturers that we have assessed.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Unlike most of the other comparable spec data projectors that came out around the same time as the X310 which do not support 3D image projection, the Optoma X310 supports 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma X310 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the X310.

Chart Edit

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The Optoma X310 supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by projectors that came out around the same time as the X310. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this data projector. This projector also support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA) and 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). The best resolution of all comparable spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the X310 is 4096 x 2160 and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Chart Edit

Very Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The average service life of lamp in economic mode of similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the X310 is 4,900h, and the service life of lamp in economic mode range from 3,500h to 10,000h. When compared to other data projectors of this type and age that we have assessed the service life of lamp in economic mode of, the Optoma X310's service life of lamp in economic mode of 10,000 hours is one of the longest.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption During PowerSave

At only 202 Watts, the Optoma X310 has a quite low power consumption during PowerSave compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the X310. Similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the X310 have power consumption during PowerSave of between 200W and 380W.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level

The noise levels of projectors of this spec and age range from 28dB to 42dB, and the average noise level is 37dB. At only 28 decibels, the Optoma X310 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for around the same time as the X310.

If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might also want to look at the Panasonic PT-EX510 (35dB).

Very Narrow

The average width of comparable spec projectors that have been around for more than a year is 400mm, and the widths range from 280mm to 530mm. With a width of only 287 millimeters, the Optoma X310 is one of the narrower 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the X310 amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Light

Across all the data projectors that came out more than a year ago the weights range from 850g to 18kg. With a weight of only 2 kilograms, the Optoma X310 is quite light compared to most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the X310.

Chart Edit

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most projectors of this type and age do not support Full HD projection. The Optoma X310 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support Full HD projection to this projector and we think the Ricoh PJ WX6170N is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other projectors of this type and age, the Optoma X310 does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Projector Brightness

Projectors of this age and spec have projector brightness of between 2,700 ANSI lumens and 6,200 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,600 ANSI lumens. The Optoma X310 has one of the dimmer projector brightness (only 3,200 ANSI lumens) amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

If you are looking for a multimedia projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the Sony VPL-FH60 ($3,799.95) (5,000 ANSI lumens).

Very Small Lamp Power

2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the X310 have lamp power of between 190W and 370W, and the average lamp power is 290W. At only 190 Watts, the Optoma X310 has a quite small lamp power compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the X310.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

The average maximum horizontal synchronization of projectors that have been on the market for more than a year is 97kHz. The Optoma X310 has one of the lower maximum horizontal synchronization (only 91.1 kilohertz) amongst similar spec projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Low RMS Rated Power

At only 2 Watts, the Optoma X310 has a fairly low RMS rated power compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec. The lowest RMS rated power of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the X310 is 2W and the highest is 16W.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

The Optoma X310 is a one VGA (D-Sub) port projector. Most of the other projectors that have been available for more than a year have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Very Small Uniformity

The Optoma X310 has a fairly small uniformity (only 85 percent) compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for more than a year. The uniformities of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the X310 range from 85% to 90%, and the average uniformity is 87%.

Chart Edit

Very Small Matrix Size

With a matrix size of only 0.55 inches, the Optoma X310 has one of the smaller matrix sizes amongst data projectors of this age. Across all the data projectors of a comparable age and type to the X310 the matrix sizes range from 0.55" to 0.79".
