9 Reasons For

Good Brand

Optoma 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors have good ratings on average and across all data projectors Optoma is one of the superior manufacturers.

Supports 3D

Like most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the W307, the Optoma W307 supports 3D.

There are a number of other projectors which support 3D currently available that you might want to look at including the Optoma EH300 ($899.99) which is cheaper; or the Viewsonic PJD5533W which has better reviews.

Other projectors which also support 3D that you might also want to consider include the Optoma X307.
