The Optoma S312 supports 3D. Most of the other data projectors that were launched more than a year ago also support 3D.

Chart Edit

Very High Number of Colours

When compared to other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the S312, the number of colours of the Optoma S312 of 1,073.4 million is one of the highest. Data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the S312 have numbers of colours of between 1M and 1,100M, and the average number of colours is 940M.

Chart Edit

Two USB 2.0 Ports Quantitys

The Optoma S312 has more USB 2.0 ports quantitys than most of the similar spec projectors that came out more than a year ago. Most of the projectors that came out around the same time as the S312 only have one USB 2.0 ports quantity, however this Optoma projector has two USB 2.0 ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The quietest noise level of data projectors of a similar age and spec to the S312 is 22dB, the loudest is 39dB, and the average noise level is 32dB. At only 29 decibels, the Optoma S312 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the S312.

Alternative data projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the P1385W (30dB), or the P1385WB (30dB) both from Acer or the Optoma W310 (29dB).

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The Optoma S312 does not support full HD, although this is within the context that most of the other projectors of this spec and age also do not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Optoma S312 does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the S312 also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the Vivitek Qumi Q6 ($385.99) is also worth considering.

Only SVGA (800x600) Projector Native Resolution

The Optoma S312 has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 53% less resolution than a WXGA (1280x800) projector, which is the most common resolution.

A SVGA (800x600) projector native resolution is actually the worst resolution across all multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the S312.

Across similar types of projector the best resolution is WUXGA (1920x1200).

2 Other reasons to consider the Optoma S312

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when Optoma released the S312.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,200 ANSI lumens, the Optoma S312 has a relatively standard projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the S312.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available including the Infocus IN119HD ($451.99) which has better reviews.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the Viewsonic PJD6552LW ($525.99) (3,500 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
