5 Reasons For

Optoma Has Good Data Projector Reviews

We calculated the average reviews for all Optoma projectors and also specifically for Optoma 18000:1 contrast ratio data projectors and found that in both cases Optoma had good reviews.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the Optoma DS340E is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most frequently found supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this multimedia projector). In addition, this projector support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA) and 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

This data projector's resolution (1600 x 1200 (UXGA)) is in fact the best supported resolution amongst all multimedia projectors of this type and age.

A 640 x 480 (VGA) supported graphics resolutions is the worst supported resolution across comparable types of data projector.

Quite High Number of Colours

With a number of colours of 1,073.4 million, the Optoma DS340E has a fairly high number of colours compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the DS340E. The lowest number of colours of similar spec multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the DS340E is 1,000M, the highest is 1,100M, and the average number of colours is 1,100M.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The average weight of 18000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the DS340E is 3.6kg, and the weights range from 2.3kg to 4.9kg. With a weight of only 2.4 kilograms, the Optoma DS340E is one of the lighter projectors of a comparable age and type to the DS340E amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption (economy Mode)

The lowest power consumption (economy mode) of multimedia projectors of this age and spec is 190W and the highest is 200W. The Optoma DS340E has one of the lower power consumption (economy mode)s (only 193 Watts) amongst 18000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Optoma DS340E does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the DS340E also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

The Optoma DS340E does not support full HD. Most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type also do not support full HD.

It is worth also looking at other data projectors which also support full HD including the DS346I, or the EH319UST ($1,470.98) both from Optoma.

Only SVGA (800x600) Projector Native Resolution

The Optoma DS340E has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 77% less resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution. Across all comparable spec projectors that have been around for a similar time to the DS340E the resolution ranges from nHD (640x360) to DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).

Chart Edit

Very Dim Projector Brightness

Across all the projectors of this age and spec the projector brightnesss range from 3,000 ANSI lumens to 3,500 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,200 ANSI lumens. At only 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Optoma DS340E has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the DS340E.

We compared this projector to all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the Optoma DX342 is also worth considering.

If you want a multimedia projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the X319UST (3,200 ANSI lumens), or the X319USTir (3,200 ANSI lumens) both from Optoma.

Very Small Bulb Power

With a bulb power of only 190 Watts, the Optoma DS340E has a fairly small bulb power compared to most of the other 18000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for more than a year. The average bulb power of data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the DS340E is 210W, and the bulb powers range from 190W to 260W.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantity

The Optoma DS340E is a one VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity projector.

Chart Edit

Very Small Uniformity

The smallest uniformity of projectors of this type and age is 80%, the biggest is 85%, and the average uniformity is 82%. The Optoma DS340E has one of the smaller uniformitys (only 80 percent) amongst projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Small Offset

Across all the data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the DS340E the offsets range from 110% to 120%, and the average offset is 120%. The Optoma DS340E has one of the smaller offsets (only 115 percent) amongst 18000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Small Matrix Size

At only 0.55 inches, the Optoma DS340E has a fairly small matrix size compared to most of the other projectors of this age and type. Across all the 18000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the DS340E the matrix sizes range from 0.55" to 0.65", and the average matrix size is 0.59".

2 Other reasons to consider the Optoma DS340E

Released Over a Year Ago

This Optoma projector was released over a year ago.

Average Noise Level

At 29 decibels, the Optoma DS340E has a fairly average noise level compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that have been on the market for more than a year.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 29dB noise level data projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the Optoma DX342.
