9 Reasons For
Optoma Projectors Have Good Reviews
On average Optoma data projectors have good reviews compared to other manufacturers as do all projectors built by Optoma.
Only Released Eight Months Ago
This projector was only released eight months ago. Newer multimedia projectors like this one are likely to use more advanced technology.
The Optoma S341 supports 3D. Most of the other similar spec projectors that were released in the last 12 months do not support 3D.
It may also be worth considering one of the other projectors which support 3D currently available including a cheaper data projector such as the Optoma S331[plb_3718068_price] or you might consider a higher scoring data projector such as the Optoma H183X[plb_3381810_price].
Supports Full HD
The Optoma S341 supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other latest multimedia projectors do not support full HD.
It may also be worth considering one of the other data projectors which support full HD currently available including because of it's better review score, the Optoma H183X[plb_3381810_price].
Has a Built-In Speaker(s)
Like most of the other recently released projectors, the Optoma S341 has a built-in speaker(s).
Alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might also want to look at include the Optoma H183X[plb_3381810_price] which has better reviews; or the Optoma S331[plb_3718068_price] which is cheaper.
1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions
The highest resolution supported by the Optoma S341 is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution supported by data projectors that were released around the same time as the S341. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this Optoma multimedia projector. This Optoma projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 800 x 600 (SVGA), 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA) and 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA).
A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) supported graphics resolutions is in fact the best supported resolution across all newly released data projectors.
The worst supported resolution amongst comparable types of data projector is 640 x 480 (VGA).
+4 More reasons for
Quite Quiet Noise Level
At only 29 decibels, the Optoma S341 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other recently released data projectors. Across all the data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the S341 the noise levels range from 22dB to 40dB, and the average noise level is 33dB.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 29dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available including the Optoma H183X[plb_3381810_price] which has better reviews.
Quite Low Power Consumption (PowerSave)
The lowest power consumption (PowerSave) of new data projectors is 0.4W and the highest is 480W. With a power consumption (PowerSave) of only 187 Watts, the Optoma S341 has one of the lower power consumption (PowerSave)s amongst similar spec multimedia projectors of this age.
The lightest projector that came out in the last 12 months is 2.7g heavy and the heaviest is 28kg. The Optoma S341 is one of the lighter multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the S341 (only 2.2 kilograms) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.
8 Reasons Against
Does Not Support Wi-Fi
Like most of the other multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the S341, the Optoma S341 does not support wi-Fi.
Only SVGA (800x600) Projector Native Resolution
The Optoma S341 has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 77% less resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.
This projector's resolution (SVGA (800x600)) is actually the worst resolution across all new data projectors.
Across comparable types of projector the best resolution is WUXGA (1920x1200).
Very Small Bulb Power
The Optoma S341 has a quite small bulb power (only 195 Watts) compared to most of the other data projectors that are a comparable age to the S341. The bulb powers of new data projectors range from 190W to 470W, and the average bulb power is 270W.
Very Low RMS Rated Power
The average RMS rated power of multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the S341 is 8.1W. The Optoma S341 has one of the lower RMS rated powers (only 2 Watts) amongst data projectors of this age.
+5 More reasons against
Only 1.4v HDMI Version
This data projector supports a 1.4v HDMI version, which is typical of many comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for the last year.
Only One HDMI Ports Quantity
The Optoma S341 is a one HDMI ports quantity data projector. Most of the other data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the S341 have between one and three HDMI ports quantitys.
Very Small Optical Zoom
The optical zooms of similar spec data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the S341 range from 1.1x to 12x, and the average optical zoom is 1.6x. The Optoma S341 has a fairly small optical zoom (only 1.1 times zoom factor) compared to most of the other latest projectors.
Quite Small Matrix Size
At only 0.65 inches, the Optoma S341 has a quite small matrix size compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the S341. Across all the similar spec multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the S341 the matrix sizes range from 0.55" to 0.76", and the average matrix size is 0.67".

Total running cost over 5 years
Running costs for this projector have been estimated based on other similar projectors. If you know how much electricity and water the Optoma S341uses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this projector over 5 years will generate 0.37 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 10 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
