8 Reasons For

Optoma Has Good Projector Reviews

Optoma has good average ratings for its data projectors as well as across its entire data projector range.

Supports 3D

The Optoma S310 supports 3D. Most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age also support 3D.

Other data projectors which support 3D currently available which you might also want to look at include the PowerLite Home Cinema 5030ub[pl_2301495_price], or the PowerLite Pro G6900WU[pl_1919039_price] both from Epson or the Benq W7000+[plb_1403580_price] which has better reviews.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The Optoma S310 supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) data projector, which is the most common resolution supported by multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the S310. In addition, this multimedia projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 800 x 600 (SVGA). The worst resolution of all multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the S310 is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The service life of lamp (economic mode)s of data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the S310 range from 2,000h to 30,000h. At 7,000 hours, the Optoma S310 has a quite long service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar spec and age to the S310.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Uniformity

Across all the multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the S310 the uniformitys range from 80% to 130%, and the average uniformity is 84%. The Optoma S310 has one of the bigger uniformitys (85 percent) amongst data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many data projectors that were launched around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

With a noise level of only 28 decibels, the Optoma S310 has one of the quieter noise levels amongst data projectors of this age. The average noise level of multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the S310 is 32dB.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 28dB noise level projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the Viewsonic Pro9000[plb_1517329_price].

Very Light

The Optoma S310 is fairly light (only 2 kilograms) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the S310. Across all the similar spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago the weights range from 2.2g to 26kg.

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma S310 does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other data projectors of a similar type and age to the S310.

We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Acer H7531D[plb_1418806_price], or the Epson PowerLite 98[plb_2397986_price].

Does Not Support Full HD

The Optoma S310 does not support full HD, although keep in mind that most of the other data projectors of this spec and age also do not support full HD.

There are a number of other projectors which also support full HD that you might also want to look at including the Benq W7000+[plb_1403580_price], or the Optoma HD30[plb_1915718_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most data projectors that were launched around the same time as the S310 do not support wi-Fi. The Optoma S310 is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the Benq GP20[plb_2231335_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Only SVGA (800x600) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the Optoma S310 is SVGA (800x600). That's 77% less resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

This projector's resolution (SVGA (800x600)) is in fact the worst resolution amongst all data projectors that have been available for more than two years.

The best resolution across similar types of projector is 1080p (1920x1080).

Very Small Bulb Power

At only 190 Watts, the Optoma S310 has a fairly small bulb power compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the S310. The smallest bulb power of data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the S310 is 140W, the biggest is 580W, and the average bulb power is 250W.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantity

The Optoma S310 is a one VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity data projector.

Only One USB 2.0 Ports Quantity

The Optoma S310 is a one USB 2.0 ports quantity projector.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Matrix Size

The smallest matrix size of multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the S310 is 0.45" and the biggest is 0.75". With a matrix size of only 0.55 inches, the Optoma S310 has a quite small matrix size compared to most of the other data projectors that are a similar age to the S310.

2 Other reasons to consider the Optoma S310

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 Optoma S310 has a fairly average projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the S310.

We compared all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the HD36[pl_2569323_price], and the EH200ST[pl_2415609_price] both from Optoma is also worth considering.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the S311[pl_2591380_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens), or the H181X[pl_2591464_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens) both from Optoma which also has a higher rating.
