9 Reasons For

Optoma Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

Optoma 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good ratings on average and across all data projectors Optoma is one of the superior brands.

Supports 3D

The Optoma DS328 supports 3D, as do most of the other similar spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support 3D and we think the Optoma DX346[plb_2212801_price], and the Benq MS504[plb_2024728_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other data projectors of this age and spec, the Optoma DS328 has a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq MX522[plb_2029720_price].

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

This projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA)|1280 x 1024 (SXGA)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA)|640 x 480 (VGA)|800 x 600 (SVGA), which is typical of many 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

Very High Number of Colours

Projectors of this spec and age have numbers of colours of between 1M and 1,100M, and the average number of colours is 730M. When compared to other multimedia projectors of this age and spec that we have checked, the number of colours of the Optoma DS328 of 1,073.4 million is one of the highest.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

The Optoma DS328 is a three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity projector. Most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and type to the DS328 only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many similar spec data projectors that have been available for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Light

The Optoma DS328 is fairly light (only 2.2 kilograms) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the DS328. The weights of 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the DS328 range from 1.3kg to 6.2kg, and the average weight is 2.8kg.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

The Optoma DS328 has a fairly quiet noise level (economic mode) (only 26 decibels) compared to most of the other data projectors of this spec and age. The quietest noise level (economic mode) of projectors of a comparable age and spec to the DS328 is 26dB and the loudest is 38dB.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The Optoma DS328 does not support full HD. Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the DS328 also do not support full HD.

Other multimedia projectors which also support full HD that you might also want to look at include the MS504[pl_2024728_price], or the MX505[pl_2024730_price] both from Benq or the Optoma DH1011[plb_1726991_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other projectors of this spec and age, the Optoma DS328 does not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Only SVGA (800x600) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the Optoma DS328 is SVGA (800x600). That's 39% less resolution than a XGA (1024x768) data projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

A SVGA (800x600) projector native resolution is actually the worst resolution amongst all data projectors of a comparable age and type to the DS328.

Amongst similar types of multimedia projector the best resolution is WXGA (1280x800).

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of only 2,800 ANSI lumens, the Optoma DS328 has one of the dimmer projector brightnesss amongst multimedia projectors of this age. The dimmest projector brightness of projectors that have been available for more than two years is 800 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 4,200 ANSI lumens.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 2,800 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the DS325[pl_1920804_price], or the DS330[pl_1878570_price] both from Optoma.

If this 13000:1 contrast ratio data projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the Benq MX661[plb_1968810_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens), or the Optoma DX346[plb_2212801_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
