6 Reasons For

Good Brand

We calculated the average reviews for all Optoma multimedia projectors and also specifically for Optoma data projectors and found that in both cases Optoma had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.

Supports Wi-Fi

The Optoma W305ST supports wi-Fi, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors of this spec and age do not support wi-Fi.

We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Benq GP30.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma W305ST has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the W305ST.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including because of it's better review score, the X351 ($599.00), or the GT1080 ($674.00) both from Optoma or the Epson EB-1930 ($646.56).

Supports 3D

Like most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the W305ST, the Optoma W305ST supports 3D.

We compared all the other projectors which support 3D to this projector and we think the X351 ($599.00), and the GT1080 ($674.00) both from Optoma or the Epson EB-1930 ($646.56) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

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 of this age and spec. This multimedia projector also supports a supported graphics resolutions of 1280 x 800. Multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the W305ST supported graphics resolutionss range from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).

There are a number of alternative data projectors which also support full HD which you might want to look at including the GT1080 ($674.00), or the HD151X both from Optoma which also has a higher rating.
