6 Reasons For

Good Product Quality

A number of people who reviewed it thought it was good quality. Andyb said on Amazon in December last year “Typical (excellent) Canon quality” in their review of this projector and rated the product 5 stars. Mr S.d. Watts wrote on Amazon “Good quality for PowerPoint presentations” and gave the product a score of 4 stars.

Acceptable Noise Level

One Canon S-300 owner who purchased it thought it was quiet. Andyb said on Amazon “It was virtually silent, with hardly any fan noise at all”.

Canon Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

On average data projectors produced by Canon are rated 79%, which is in the top 48% of all data projector manufacturers that we have analysed.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other 2300:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago, the Canon S-300 has a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to look at including because of it's better review score, the DELL S500[plb_1538835_price].

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The noise levels of 2300:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the S-300 range from 28dB to 36dB, and the average noise level is 35dB. The Canon S-300 has a quite quiet noise level (only 35 decibels) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the S-300.

Chart Edit

Very Light

With a weight of only 2.5 kilograms, the Canon S-300 is quite light compared to most of the other 2300:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the S-300. The lightest projector of this type and age is 2.4kg heavy, the heaviest is 7.3kg, and the average weight is 3.7kg.

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The Canon S-300 does not support 3D, although keep in mind that most of the other 2300:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the S-300 also do not support 3D.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D to this data projector and we think the DELL S500[plb_1538835_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD

The Canon S-300 does not support full HD, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other 2300:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago also do not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most similar spec projectors that came out around the same time as the S-300 do not support wi-Fi. The Canon S-300 is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also support wi-Fi including the DELL S500[plb_1538835_price].

Only SVGA (800x600) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the Canon S-300 is SVGA (800x600). That's 53% less resolution than the most common projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800). Across all projectors of this age and type the worst resolution is VGA (640x480) and the best is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).

Chart Edit

Very Small Bulb Power

The Canon S-300 has a fairly small bulb power (only 190 Watts) compared to most of the other 2300:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the S-300. The average bulb power of 2300:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the S-300 is 210W.

Chart Edit

Very Low RMS Rated Power

At only 2 Watts, the Canon S-300 has a fairly low RMS rated power compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that came out more than two years ago. Comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the S-300 have RMS rated powers of between 2W and 16W, and the average RMS rated power is 10W.

Chart Edit

Very High Power Consumption (PowerSave)

The Canon S-300 has one of the highest power consumption (PowerSave)s (275 Watts) amongst 2300:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. Across all the projectors of this age and type the power consumption (PowerSave)s range from 6W to 280W.

Chart Edit

Very Small Digital Zoom

With a digital zoom of only 2 times zoom factor, the Canon S-300 has one of the smaller digital zooms amongst comparable spec projectors of this age. The smallest digital zoom of comparable spec data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the S-300 is 2x, the biggest is 4x, and the average digital zoom is 2.7x.

Chart Edit

Very Small Matrix Size

At only 0.55 inches, the Canon S-300 has a quite small matrix size compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the S-300. Across all the 2300:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago the matrix sizes range from 0.55" to 0.65".

2 Other reasons to consider the Canon S-300

Released Over Two Years Ago

It was over two years ago when this projector was released.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Canon S-300 has a relatively typical projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the S-300.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the Canon WX[plb_2435670_price].
