7 Reasons For

Good Brand

Optoma is one of the better rated projector brands according to average reviews from experts and users, and Optoma also has good ratings for its 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The ZH300UW supports 3D image projection. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released in the last 12 months do not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other projectors that have been around for around the same time as the ZH300UW, the Optoma ZH300UW has a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the Epson PowerLite 585W ($1,093.99).

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The Optoma ZH300UW supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over two times the resolution of a 1024 x 768 (XGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by comparable spec data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the ZH300UW. 1024 x 768 (XGA) is also supported by this projector. In addition, this multimedia projector support graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA), 800 x 480 (WVGA), 800 x 600 (SVGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 1280 x 720 (HD 720) and 1360 x 768 (WXGA). Across all similar spec multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the ZH300UW the best resolution is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The average noise level of new projectors is 35dB, and the noise levels range from 28dB to 41dB. At only 32 decibels, the ZH300UW has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the ZH300UW.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 32dB noise level data projectors currently available including the Acer H6510BD ($471.99) which has better reviews.

Projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth looking at include the Acer H6520BD (31dB).

Quite Long Lamp Service Life

With a lamp service life of 20,000 hours, the ZH300UW has one of the longer lamp service lives amongst projectors of this age. Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched in the last year the lamp service lives range from 2,500h to 30,000h.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Power Consumption During PowerSave

Across all the latest 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors the power consumption during PowerSave range from 8W to 620W. At only 225 Watts, the Optoma ZH300UW has a quite low power consumption during PowerSave compared to most of the other latest comparable spec projectors.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Optoma ZH300UW does not support Full HD projection, although this is within the context that most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the ZH300UW also do not support Full HD projection.

Other projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might also want to look at include the Benq MH530 ($469.99).

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The ZH300UW does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other recently released projectors also do not support WiFi connectivity.

It is worth considering other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Canon 0910C005, the Hitachi CP-AX3005, or the Epson EB-585WS.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

When compared to other projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the ZH300UW, the projector brightness of the ZH300UW of only 2,700 ANSI lumens is one of the dimmest. Projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the ZH300UW have projector brightness of between 450 ANSI lumens and 10,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,900 ANSI lumens.

If you would prefer a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the Canon LV-X310ST (3,100 ANSI lumens), or the Hitachi CP-CW301WN (3,100 ANSI lumens).

Only One Audio in Port

The ZH300UW is a one audio in port multimedia projector. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for the last year have between one and two audio in ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level in Economy Mode

With a noise level in economy mode of 32 decibels, the ZH300UW has a fairly loud noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that came out in the last year. The noise levels in economy mode of latest data projectors range from 26dB to 39dB.

Chart Edit

Very Small Optical Zoom

The ZH300UW has one of the smaller optical zooms (only 1 times zoom factor) amongst similar spec data projectors of this age. Across all the recently released 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors the optical zooms range from 1x to 2x.
