Optoma X316 Full 3D Projector Review
Best review for Optoma X316 Full 3D XGA 3200 Lumen DLP Projector with Superior Lamp Life and HDMI

9 Reasons For

Optoma Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

Optoma 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good ratings on average and across all projectors Optoma is one of the better rated manufacturers.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma X316 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the X316 also support 3D image projection.

There are a number of alternative projectors which support 3D image projection currently available which you might want to look at including the Infocus IN122A ($339.99) which is cheaper; or the Epson EH-TW5200, or the Infocus IN112A which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma X316 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago also have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the Epson EH-TW5200, and the Infocus IN112A which has better reviews; or the Infocus IN122A ($339.99) which is cheaper are also worth considering.

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 the most commonly supported graphics resolution on projectors of this age and type.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Number of Colours

The Optoma X316 has one of the higher numbers of colours (1,073.4 million) amongst projectors of this age. The lowest number of colours of similar spec multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the X316 is 1M, the highest is 1,100M, and the average number of colours is 850M.

Chart Edit

Very Bright Lamp Power in Economic Mode

The lamp powers in economic mode of 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the X316 range from 160W to 10,000W. When compared to other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the X316 that we have assessed, the lamp power in economic mode of the Optoma X316 of 10,000 Watts is one of the brightest.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

With a noise level in economy mode of only 29 decibels, the Optoma X316 has a fairly quiet noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the X316. The average noise level in economy mode of similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the X316 is 31dB, and the noise levels in economy mode range from 26dB to 35dB.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Power Consumption During PowerSave

Across all the 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years the power consumption during PowerSave range from 0.37W to 290W, and the average power consumption during PowerSave is 210W. With a power consumption during PowerSave of only 191 Watts, the Optoma X316 has one of the lower power consumption during PowerSave amongst similar spec projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption in Economy Mode

The average power consumption in economy mode of multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the X316 is 580W. At only 194 Watts, the Optoma X316 has a fairly low power consumption in economy mode compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the X316.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most projectors of a comparable age and type to the X316 do not support Full HD projection. The Optoma X316 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Viewsonic PJD5483S or the Epson EH-TW5200 are also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Optoma X316 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the X316 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Very Small Uniformity

With a uniformity of only 80 percent, the Optoma X316 has one of the smaller uniformities amongst similar spec data projectors of this age. The uniformities of projectors of this spec and age range from 80% to 90%.

Chart Edit

Very Small Optical Zoom

The smallest optical zoom of comparable spec data projectors that were released around the same time as the X316 is 1.1x and the biggest is 1.7x. With an optical zoom of only 1.1 times zoom factor, the Optoma X316 has one of the smaller optical zooms amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.
