6 Reasons For

Optoma Has Good Reviews for Its Data Projectors

Optoma is one of the superior projector manufacturers according to average reviews from experts and owners, and Optoma also has good reviews for its data projectors.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other projectors of this type and age, the Optoma DS331 has a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Acer H7531D which has better reviews.

Supports 3D

The Optoma DS331 supports 3D, as do most of the other data projectors that came out more than two years ago.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors which support 3D and we think because of it's better review score, the PowerLite Home Cinema 5030ub ($3,199.00), and the PowerLite Pro G6900WU both from Epson or the Benq W7000+ is also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the Optoma DS331 is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by data projectors that are a comparable age to the DS331. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this multimedia projector. In addition, this projector support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago supported graphics resolutionss range from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

At 10,000 hours, the Optoma DS331 has a quite long service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the DS331. The average service life of lamp (economic mode) of data projectors that are a similar age to the DS331 is 6,600h, and the service life of lamp (economic mode)s range from 2,000h to 30,000h.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The Optoma DS331 does not support full HD. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the DS331 also do not support full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the Benq W7000+, or the Optoma HD30 is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Optoma DS331 does not support wi-Fi, although this is within the context that most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the DS331 also do not support wi-Fi.

Other projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might want to look at include the Benq GP20.

The Optoma DS331 has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 77% less resolution than the most common projector native resolution of 1080p (1920x1080).

A SVGA (800x600) projector native resolution is actually the worst resolution across all projectors of this type and age.

Across comparable types of projector the best resolution is 1080p (1920x1080).
