Optoma Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors
We checked 1,703 owner and expert reviews for Optoma data projectors and found that on average Optoma has good ratings. We also found that Optoma has good ratings specifically for its multimedia projectors.
Supports 3D Image Projection
The Optoma X320UST supports 3D image projection. Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the X320UST also support 3D image projection.
There are a number of alternative projectors which support 3D image projection currently available which you might also want to look at including the HD161X ($1,323.15), or the HD50 both from Optoma which has a better Rating; or the Acer H8550BD which is cheaper.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The X320UST has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other multimedia projectors that were launched more than a year ago.
We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker to this multimedia projector and we think the Epson EB-536Wi, and the Acer H8550BD which is cheaper is also worth considering.
We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the Optoma EH319USTI ($1,838.00) is also worth considering.
Fairly Bright Projector Brightness
With a projector brightness of 4,000 ANSI lumens, the X320UST has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for more than a year. The dimmest projector brightness of comparable spec data projectors that were released around the same time as the X320UST is 500 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 9,200 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,300 ANSI lumens.
Two Audio in Ports
The X320UST is a two audio in port projector.
Fairly Big Lamp Power
At 260 Watts, the X320UST has a quite big lamp power compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that were released more than a year ago. Across all the similar spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the X320UST the lamp power range from 140W to 380W, and the average lamp power is 240W.

4 Reasons Against
Does Not Support Full HD Projection
Most comparable spec projectors that have been around for a similar time to the X320UST do not support Full HD projection. The Optoma X320UST is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.
It is worth also looking at alternative multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Acer H8550BD or the HD161X ($1,323.15), or the HD50 both from Optoma.
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
Most projectors of a similar age and spec to the X320UST do not support WiFi connectivity. The Optoma X320UST is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.
Very Short Lamp Service Life
Across all the projectors of a comparable type and age to the X320UST the lamp service lives range from 2,000h to 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 7,300h. At only 3,000 hours, the Optoma X320UST has a quite short lamp service life compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the X320UST.
With a weight of 4.8 kilograms, the X320UST is one of the heavier multimedia projectors that came out more than a year ago amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age. Multimedia projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the X320UST have weights of between 9.7g and 26kg, and the average weight is 3.7kg.

3 Other reasons to consider the Optoma X320UST
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when Optoma released the X320UST.
1024 X 768 (XGA) Graphics Resolution
The X320UST supports a maximum resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA). That's over two times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA).
If the resolution of this projector is too low for you then you might also want to look at the Optoma HD421X (640 x 480 (VGA and cheaper)|1024 x 768 (XGA and cheaper)|1280 x 1024 (SXGA and cheaper)|1280 x 720 (HD 720 and cheaper)|1280 x 768 (WXGA and cheaper)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA and cheaper) and cheaper), or the NEC M403X (640 x 480 (VGA and cheaper)|720 x 480|720 x 576|800 x 600 (SVGA and cheaper)|832 x 624|1024 x 768 (XGA and cheaper)|1152 x 864 (XGA+ and cheaper)|1152 x 870|1280 x 1024 (SXGA and cheaper)|1280 x 720 (HD 720 and cheaper)|1280 x 768 (WXGA and cheaper)|1280 x 800 (WXGA and cheaper)|1280 x 960|1360 x 768 (WXGA and cheaper)|1366 Ñ 768|1400 x 1050 (SXGA+ and cheaper)|1440 x 900|1600 x 1200 (UXGA and cheaper)|1600 x 900|1680 x 1050 (W and cheaper); or the Optoma HD50 (1024 x 768 (XGA and higher rated)|1280 x 1024 (SXGA and higher rated)|1280 x 720 (HD 720 and higher rated)|1280 x 768 (WXGA and higher rated)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA and higher rated)|1920 x 1080 (HD 1080 and higher rated)|640 x 480 (VGA and higher rated)|800 x 600 (SVGA and higher rated) and higher rated).
XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution
The X320UST has a maximum resolution of XGA (1024x768). That's 23% less resolution than the most common native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800).
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative projectors that have a resolution of XGA (1024x768) currently available including cheaper data projectors such as the NEC M403X.
If you would prefer a multimedia projector with a higher resolution then you might want to look at the Epson EB-536Wi (WXGA (1280x800 and cheaper) and cheaper), or the Optoma W402 (WXGA (1280x800 and cheaper) and cheaper).

Total running cost over 5 years
Running costs for this projector have been estimated based on other similar projectors. If you know how much electricity and water the Optoma X320USTuses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this projector over 5 years will generate 0.51 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 14 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
